Trump and Pocahontas

Can I just say how much it bothers me that Donald Trump tried to belittle Elizabeth Warren by calling her Pocahontas? I’ve seen comments responding that Trump missed the mark because Pocahontas was an incredible woman, and others saying Warren tried to claim Cherokee heritage she can’t prove so she deserves it. I don’t care about either of those things. What I care about is, he’s using “Pocahontas” the same way he uses “Goofy” and “Crooked” — as an insult. One of the few Native Americans most people have heard of, and just attaching her name to someone is an insult? Shame on you, Donald Trump.

    It has become a badge of honor to be insulted by Donald Trump. If I had a bucket list, that would be near the top, right after seeing the inauguration of the first woman President of the United States. First Black President has already been checked off.

    Hmm. Interesting perspective. Maybe we should make a contest out of it: get a bunch of people together and take bets on who can get insulted by Trump first?

    Too late for “first” that probably was while he was a toddler. But, “next” could work. Now. How do we get the attention of “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named”?

    Donald Trump is a classic case of arrested development. He’s the 10 year old boy in the school yard who becomes a bully at the drop of a hat. If anyone disagrees with him, he calls them anything he thinks is insulting. He seems especially frightened of strong, intelligent, articulate women. That’s when his head spins and he starts to sputter. Zero impulse control.
