White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders unloaded on hyper-liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren on Monday, saying the American people are “offended” she would “lie about her heritage” to advance her political agenda.
Sanders was fielding questions from reporters at the daily press briefing when she was asked to comment on the President Trump’s passing reference to Warren as “Pocahontas” during a meeting with Native American WWII veterans at the White House.
“At the event that the President just did with the Navajo code-talkers, he referred to ‘Pocahontas’ being in the Senate. Why did he feel the need to say something offensive to so many people while honoring the Navajo code-talkers?” asked one reporter.
“What most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career,” fired-back Sanders.
“She said it’s a racial slur. What’s your response to that?” pressed the journalist.
“I think that’s a ridiculous response,” said the Press Secretary. “The President certainly finds an extreme amount of value and respect for these individuals, which is why he brought them and invited them to the White House; spending time with them and recognizing them and honoring them today.”
