Senator Warren Has Some Serious Class

Tea Party-Backing Heckler Calls Elizabeth Warren ‘Socialist Whore’ Eric Kleefeld, TPM





“I actually felt sorry for the guy. I really genuinely did,” Warren later told the Huffington Post. “He’s been out of work now for a year and a half. And bless his heart, I mean, he thought somehow it would help to come here and yell names.”





She also added: “I’m not angry with him, but he didn’t come up with the idea that his biggest problem was Occupy Wall Street. There’s someone else pre-packaging that poison — and that’s who makes me angry.”





Obama has proven he's a center right kkkorpratist, I'd like to see Ms Warren run for something higher than senator.

The heckler was also, apparently, a birfer, shouting at her about her "foreign-born" boss.

I believe there's video of the wanker trying to run through a door before opening it. If I come across it I'll post it.

Warren addresses 'Pocahontas' slur in surprise address to National Congress of American Indians

Warren addresses 'Pocahontas' slur in surprise address to National Congress of American Indians

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Wednesday made a surprise appearance at the National Congress of American Indians, delivering a speech about issues facing Native Americans and defending herself from the "Pocahontas" slur repeatedly lobbed at her by President Trump.

The senator, who claims partial Native American heritage, explained her family’s background in the speech, saying that her mother’s family was part Native American and that she eloped with Warren’s father because his family did not approve of their relationship.

“I get why some people think there’s hay to be made here,” Warren said, according to a transcript of the speech published by The Boston Globe. “You won’t find my family members on any rolls, and I’m not enrolled in a tribe.”

She said that she respects the distinction between heritage and tribal membership, and said she has “never used my family tree to get a break or get ahead. I never used it to advance my career.”
Trump most recently referred to Warren as “Pocahontas” at a November event honoring Native American Code Talkers, a comment that many have criticized as a racial slur.

“We have a president who can’t make it through a ceremony honoring Native American war heroes without reducing Native history, Native culture, Native people to the butt of a joke,” Warren said Wednesday.

Warren told the basics of the Pocahontas story, noting specifically her suffering at the hands of early English settlers.

Interesting that she is addressing the Pocohontas taunts. And, where she did.
I think this signals she is considering a run.

This will have exactly the same effect as Obama releasing his BC twice in damping down the shit. They will double down on it as they think its gotten under her skin.

Any odds as to whether Trump will honor his promise to donate $1M to charity, if Warren produced a DNA test that showed native American ancestry?

Yeah, I know.

Trump denies offering $1 million for Warren DNA test, even though he did
President Trump on Monday denied that he offered Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) $1 million to take a test proving her Native American heritage, even though he did just that.

Trump spoke after Warren responded to the president's challenge and released the results of a DNA test showing she has a distant Native ancestor.

"I didn't say that. You'd better read it again," Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about his $1 million offer.
Responding to a question about Warren's test, Trump said, "Who cares?"

Ooh, the weasel was weaseling. It was a hypothetical!
TRUMP: Let`s say I`m debating Pocahontas, right? I promise you I`ll do
this. I will take – you know those little kits they sell on television
for $2, learn your heritage. The guy says, “I was born in Scotland.” It
turns out he was born in Puerto Rico. That`s OK. That`s good.

You know, the guy says, “I was born in Germany.” Well, he wasn`t born in
Germany.” He was born someplace else. I`m going to get one of those kits
and in the middle of it debate when she proclaims that she`s of Indian
heritage because her mother said she has high cheekbones, that`s her only
evidence that her mother said she had high cheekbone.

We will take that little kit and say, but we be to do it gently because in
the Me Too generation, we have to be very gentle. And we will very gently
take that kit, and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn`t hit her and
injure her arm, even though it only weighs probably two ounces. And we
will say, “I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity paid
for it by Trump if you take the test and it shows you`re an Indian.

I also expect if she pushes him on it, he will get his own 'expert' to 'debunk' the test.

I despise his condescension, especially toward people who are so much better, all-round, than he. The people who find him attractive...sorry, I can’t finish that thought without making myself sick. Seriously, I’ve never had such a visceral reaction to a human before. He’s a bully and a cheat. Who admires that? Whoever they are, let’s round them up and put them all on an island with Donald, all the authoritarian followers with their authoritarian leader, see how long it takes to devolve into Lord of the Flies with Donald being Chief Bluebottle (genus Calliphora vomitoria).

My favorite (not) part of the Boston Globe story is when they say "...it's unclear whether the test will convince Trump and his diehard supporters...."

Bad reporting. Though it is unclear to the writer of the BG story, everyone else on the planet know it will not.

The @realDonaldTrump Foundation can't pay off this $1M pledge. It's prohibited from spending $ while the NY A.G. is suing it. And it doesn't have the money, anyway: it's down to $970K. If POTUS is going to pay this, it's got to be his own $. http://990s.foundationcenter.org/990pf_ ... _990PF.pdf

Trump: I’ll donate $1M for Warren if I can test her ‘personally’

President Trump said Monday he would only donate $1 million on behalf of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) if he tests her claims of Native American ancestry “personally.”

“I’ll only do it if I can test her personally," Trump told reporters in Georgia.

He said testing Warren would "not be something I will enjoy.”
