Trump Honored Native American Code Talkers at the White House. What Could Go Wrong?

I want a wall. I’ve never wanted the wall before, but I do now.

I want to build a wall around the White House that doesn’t allow anyone of color inside, because once inside, we can’t keep you safe. There is a good chance that you are going to be subjected to racist jokes from an old man who can’t find his penis, nor hold it, because he has really tiny hands.


On Monday, President Ludwig von IFuckingHateThisManWithAllMyMight was honoring Native American “code talkers,” who served in World War II, and thought that it would be funny to call Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) “Pocahontas” because, you know, Native Americans!

“You were here long before any of us were here,” said Trump, standing in the Oval Office, The Hill reports. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”

Turning to the veterans, Trump said, “But do you know what? I like you.”


Look, is it funny that Warren once claimed Native American heritage? Of course it is. And I am the first to admit that funny is nonpartisan. If you do some dumb shit like claim to be something you aren’t, then you have all of the grounds to be properly clowned for it. But you don’t make “Pocahontas” jokes when you are honoring “three Navajos who helped the U.S. Marine Corps develop a secret code during the Second World War,” The Hill reports.

What an asshole. Seriously, this man is representing America on a global stage, and he doesn’t think that any of this kind of behavior is even remotely racist and cringeworthy.


The Hill notes that none of the code talkers responded to his remarks, and because Trump wasn’t finished, he referred to White House chief of staff John Kelly as simply “chief” because you, Native Americans, were in attendance .... and ... fuck this guy.

And because Sarah Huckabee Sanders, aka Suckabee, who would argue that Satan was actually a great angel until God decided to change the playing field and cast him away and that the real focus should be on God and not Satan, defended the president.


Watch below and then find a safe place to vomit.
