Pocahontas

Most days, ignoring Donald Trump requires effortless reminders to “let it go”. Accepting Trump’s unstoppable popularity formed as a reflex rather than “coming to terms’ struggle. Like blowing fluff off a dandelion – puff, gone, on to the next weed. Realizing America eluded comprehension, this left-wing Canadian woke one morning to a phifft of self preservation. Dispatching outrage, horror, disbelief and concern – construction of a personal Trump wall followed with seamless implementation.

Palpable relief coddled a brave new world, inexplicable elation buoyed my every step. I didn’t give a rat’s ass about Trump, American politics, ignorance, inequality,red necks, corruption, propaganda or nincompoops. Trump was America’s problem, America was America’s problem – one deft phifft, spared the excruciating burden of concern.

Who am I kidding? Great as it felt, blissful as it was, fondly as I’ll recall glorious freedom of a Trumpless mind – the man recently referred to Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas”. Is he insane, consumed by delusions of infallible grandeur, determined to boldly spit in the face of decency, human rights and freedom? Regardless of which wretched ember festers in Trump’s mind, I can’t dandelion fluff away Pocahontas.

Elizabeth Warren has exhibited vocal public disdain for Trump. On Tuesday Warren said of Trump –

“Donald Trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown because it meant he could buy up a bunch more property on the cheap,” said Ms. Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts. “What kind of a man does that?”

She went on to argue that Mr. Trump was rooting for people to lose their jobs and be kicked out of their houses.

“I’ll tell you exactly what kind of a man does that,” Ms. Warren added. “It is a man who cares about no one but himself. A small, insecure money-grubber who doesn’t care who gets hurt so long as he makes a profit off it.”

True to idiotic playground bully form, you don’t hit close to Trump home base and walk away unscathed. I refuse to dignify Trump’s Tweeted response, suffice to say he called Warren a “hypocrite”, more importantly he referred to her as “sometimes called Pocahontas”. WTF Donald – this is how you make America great again?

It seems the same little baby who threw a tantrum over Obama’s birth certificate, wants Warren to “prove” her native American heritage. Apparently while in college, Warren claimed to be 1/32 Native American to benefit from affirmative action. Who freaking cares! Calling a U.S. Senator Pocahontas is beyond repugnant. Any American who thinks this pin headed numskull is presidential material needs their head examined. Americans disgusted by Trump’s vision of a great America ought to get off their complacent butts  and say something about it. Trump’s vile antics stopped being cute a long time ago, referring to Warren as Pocahontas defies any hope of a great America.

  1. Trump plays dirty and it will lead to his nomination as one of two presidential candidates. He will continue to play dirty with his lies and bullying tactics and for all I know he will destroy Clinton for all the wrong reasons. Americans will have to live with him in the belated knowledge that there is a reason why we invented political correctness: it is to ensure that politics is done correctly. We are not in a ghetto where all that matters is survival. We are in a world where developing mutually beneficial relationships and respect for humanity is the basis for our success.

    It is time we shift our eyes from the bully to the idiots that give him a microphone. Who are these stupid people? Who are these fuckwits that are willing to sacrifice the beacon of democracy to the fires of nationalism just to tell Washington that they are pompous pricks?

  2. Just for the record, Elizabeth Warren, like many people born in Oklahoma, does have Cherokee ancestors. And both she and the people who hired her at Harvard deny that this played any part in the decision to hire her. In other words, she was not an affirmative action hire.
