Here’s How Trump’s Son Defended His “Pocahontas” Remarks Mocking Elizabeth Warren

Staggering indeed.

In an apparent attempt to best his older brother for worst Twitter takes, Eric Trump on Tuesday defended his father’s usage of “Pocahontas” to mock Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) during a White House event honoring Native American veterans a day earlier. 

The tweet comes amid widespread condemnation over Trump’s unscripted remarks, which he made while standing in front of a portrait of Andrew Jackson. Warren swiftly criticized Trump for the “racial slur,” adding that his attempts to silence her would not work.

Truly staggering, indeed.
