The MSM (Temporarily) Turns on Elizabeth Warren Over Failed Native American Ancestry Campaign

Conservatives some years ago began referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as “Fauxcahontas” over her frequently repeated claim that she is of Native American descent. It was a nickname obviously intended to imply her claim was fake. Donald Trump, first as a candidate and later as President, simply called her “Pocahontas”, nixing the pun and drawing cries of racism from the left and MSNBC, who consider it pejorative of the ancestry rather than the falsehood. Trump still uses his version to this day, but perhaps a more appropriate name would be “Faux-PAS-hontas,” because as the mainstream media and Native American tribal representatives noted after her disastrous DNA debut on Monday, what Warren did was definitely embarrassing and tactless. And in the view of some critics, it was equal to or worse than Trump’s nicknaming. Take, for example, this tweet, not from a conservative hater, but from ABC News:

Trump’s Stormy Daniels Insult Triggers Outrage: It’s ‘Mushroom D*ck vs. Horseface’

Reactions to President Donald Trump‘s deeply personal attack on Stormy Daniels are coming in fast and furious. On Monday, a defamation claim against Trump brought by Daniels was dismissed by a Federal judge. How did the President respond? Tuesday morning, he called Daniels “horseface” and gloated about the possibility that she’ll have to compensate him for his legal fees. This is hardly the first time Trump has attacked a woman by taking shots at her looks. But as you can see, political observers are apoplectic over this latest occurrence:

Trump Calls Stormy Daniels ‘Horseface’, Rips ‘3rd Rate Lawyer’ Avenatti Over Dismissed Lawsuit

Um, wow. President Trump just tweeted for the first time about the news that a Federal judge has dismissed the defamation lawsuit filed against him by Stormy Daniels. Since this is Trump we’re talking about, it seemed likely he would respond to the news with an all-out celebration. And sure enough, he…went full throttle.
“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials [sic] lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas.

Trump Calls ‘Fake News’ on Alleged Saudi Financial Interests…Despite Previous Boasts About the Same

President Trump is calling “FAKE NEWS” on the suggestion that he’s being soft on Saudi Arabia because he doesn’t want to endanger his business interests in the region. After trashing Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) over her effort to lay her Native American ancestry claims to rest, Trump went back to tweeting about migrant “caravans” and threatening to cut aid to Latin American countries if they aren’t stopped.

Maria Bartiromo On U.S.-Saudi Relationship: We Do Business ‘With Other Amoral People Across the World’

Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo made some eye-opening comments about the U.S.-Saudi Arabia relationship Tuesday morning, amid widespread condemnation of the Saudis from many people on both sides of the aisle over the disappearance of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi. Speaking with Rep. Peter King (R-NY) — who came down hard on the Saudis as they are reportedly about to admit that Khashoggi died because of a botched interrogation — Bartiromo did not seem willing to throw away the U.S.-Saudi relationship over this episode. “This is the balance that we walk,” Bartiromo said. “Because you said the Saudis — you always thought that they were amoral. We do business and partnerships with other amoral people across the world. Let’s not forget that.” Bartiromo added, “But, at the same time, this was real disappointing because this was our last hope of any stability in the Middle Continue reading "Maria Bartiromo On U.S.-Saudi Relationship: We Do Business ‘With Other Amoral People Across the World’"

Marco Rubio: It’s Worth Blowing Up Relationship With Saudi Arabia Over Human Rights

Sen. Marco Rubio spoke out against Saudi Arabia’s alleged killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi on CNN Tuesday and held that human rights are more important than U.S. relations with the Gulf nation. Trump has framed his reluctance to strongly condemn Saudi Arabia around his fears of jeopardizing arms deals with the country, totaling at least $9 billion since 2013. CNN’s Alisyn Camerota noted Trump’s concerns about the arms deals and added that Rubio himself sees Saudi Arabia as a valuable hedge against Iran’s influence in the Middle East. “Is one journalist’s gruesome murder enough to blow all of that up?” she asked. “Well, I can tell you that human rights is worth blowing that up,” Rubio replied. “And luring someone into a consulate where they’re murdered, dismembered and disposed of is a big deal. By the way, this happens to be a green card holder of Continue reading "Marco Rubio: It’s Worth Blowing Up Relationship With Saudi Arabia Over Human Rights"

Trump Bashes ‘Complete and Total Fraud’ Elizabeth Warren After Cherokee Nation Rejects DNA Claim

It was inevitable. President Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to rip Senator Elizabeth Warren over her claims to Native American heritage. In a move that generated speculation yesterday about a presidential run, Warren released the results of a DNA test she took in order to prove her claims of Native American ancestry. Shortly afterwards, Cherokee Nation rejected her test and accused her of “undermining tribal interests.” Now, Trump’s calling her a “phony” and bringing back his “Pocahontas” slur.
