Trump was roasted for using Pocahantas as a "slur" in front of great men/women of Indian heritage

Since when is Pocahantas not a great Indian?

My guess is nobody was offended

You would guess wrong.  And the insult was understood to be one by everyone who heard it.

not good

Heidi seems to have made a blooper,  but it seemed to be without malice or any intent of harm.   Up to ND voters to decide if it's  forgivable.  Since she's a woman in American politics, I deem it likely the Right will spend the next couple decades demonizing her.

It’s a good distraction from the open corruption and rabid incompetence exhibited by the GOP. Old white men will do nearly anything to distract minds from their continued shrinkage and enfeeblement.

Kiid’s fondest hope is that someone compares him to a Disney Princess, any Disney Princess.

It’s at least as well received as those super complimentary mascots and logos they have in Cleveland and D.C.

I am pretty sure that if Kiid heard it he would not recognize it as a slur.

Redd would recognize it, but refuse to admit it.

Bambi would say, "but what about when white men are insulted?!"

So Kid thinks that Trump is paying Warren a compliment.  Kid's "intellect" is apparently going through a Benjamin Button like process.

http://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/ok-to-be-white-australian-government-senators-condemn-anti-white-racism/ar-BBOoFvZ?li=AAgfYrC&OCID=AVRES000

On Monday the Senate voted 31 to 28 to reject a motion put by Pauline Hanson – which acknowledged the “deplorable rise of anti-white racism and attacks on Western civilisation” and “it is OK to be white”.
Hanson’s motion received 23 votes from the ruling Liberal-National Coalition. [Conservatives]
Liberal senator Lucy Gichuhi – born in Kenya and the first person of black African descent elected to the Australian parliament – also voted for the motion.

The motion was opposed by the opposition Labor and Greens parties, and crossbench senators Derryn Hinch, Tim Storer, Stirling Griff and Rex Patrick.


#####

Having voted on Monday for the bill declaring that:  “deplorable rise of anti-white racism and attacks on Western civilisation” and “it is OK to be white”....the govt Senators/Liberal Party Coalition [Conservatives] had the bill re-submitted on Tuesday...and voted against it...apologising for having voted for it on Monday.

LOL

WIMPS!
And they wonder why most of their supporters have walked away from them, and stopped donating money to them...thereby giving the Left/Far Left a free run to power next year.
Fools!

“Fools!” Says someone who will be the last shitheel in Australia.

It’s good to see your favored party crumble, Bambu. It gives hope at least for your corner of the world. May your fascist friends never rise again.

Not the ones I live near and work with. They recognized Trump's insult for.what it was.

I am reminded of the SNL sketch that had Trump refer to Lester Holt as "Kanye". If you use the name to demean and insult it does not matter how much she is "revered."

And where do you get the idea she is revered by Native Americans? Not by the ones I know, but they are mostly Navajo or Apache.
