Everything Donald Trump Thread

New Donald Trump thread under heavy moderation. Any trolling, personal attacks or any other rule breaking will result in losing access to off-topic.

All Donald Trump discussions belong here.

To kick-start the thread...

Families of Navajo Code Talkers decry Trump's 'Pocahontas' jab
New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall, vice chairman of the Indian Affairs committee, added: "Donald Trump's latest racist joke -- during Native American Heritage Month no less -- demeaned the contributions that the Code Talkers and countless other Native American patriots and citizens have made to our great country."

so why not just bring back the old thread which was 190 pages long?

Too much to clean up. Easier to start fresh. This is a decision made by admins, following the request of users who wanted a Donald Trump thread back up.

Sorry but it was Bill Maher who coined the 'Pocahontas' term for Lizzy Warren during their interview earlier this year and neither Warren nor anyone else had a problem with that term at the time. Talk about hypocrisy.
Maybe they should charge Warren for impersonating a Native American.

Apparently she got a $350k job teaching 1 class at university due to her "native" heritage. She has never produced any evidence that she is native. Many people have offered to pay for dna testing but......

Wrong. He was mimicking Trump's tweet. Pocahontas originated from Breitbart then Trump tweeted it and Bill Maher used it to poke fun of Trump.

He tweeted it early 2016. Bill Maher made the joke early 2017.

It's ok, he double checked with Pocahontas' descendant to make sure it was ok for him to use her name when referring to Warren.

I don't really get how it's a slur. Anyone care to explain how it's a slur to call someone falsely claiming indigeneity by the name of someone who was actually an indigenous person?

Trump is German. Let's all refer to him in public, official communications as Hitler from now on. It's totally okay because Hitler is the world's most well-known German and we found a distant relative of Hitler who said it is.
Hitler is Austrian...

And Pocahontas was from Virginia, whereas Elizabeth Warren is from Oklahoma. Granular distinctions don't matter when it comes to racism. Hitler is known for being German the same way Pocahontas is known for being native.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

“If Pocahontas were alive today, she would be very proud of President Trump,” Porreco said. “Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, Donald Trump is going to be our hero.”
This well thought out, entirely objective opinion from Pocahontas' descendant leaves absolutely no doubt that this "slur" thing is just silly.

And? Aren't the Trump comparisons to Hitler fairly common by now? Colbert called Trump a "cock holster" on network TV and people applauded and celebrated him.

Trump isn't presidential. He's going to say stuff like this and his supporters are going to continue to love it. I think people gotta get used to that.

Also, you didn't explain how it's a slur...

The code breakers are Navajo. Warren claims Cherokee descent. Pocahontas was Algonquin. I fail to see the connection between the code breakers and Warren, nor do I see the necessity of taking shots at a political opponent during an event honoring veterans.

At best it shows a lack of savoir vivre
