President Trump sent the mainstream media into a meltdown on Monday when he referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas,” but the congresswoman may have her own controversy coming over the horizon.
While honoring the Navajo Code Talkers, a group of World War 2 veterans who used their native language to make American military communications nearly indecipherable, President Trump took the opportunity to once again question Warren’s heritage.
Many in the media took this opportunity to once again call the president racist, even though Trump is accusing Warren of lying about her race to receive beneficial treatment.
During the 2016 campaign, President Trump first began calling Warren’s heritage into question in response to her many attacks against him. The president and other of Warren’s critics point out that her claim of American Indian heritage is based entirely on having “high cheekbones,” and say she unfairly lied about her heritage when applying to college.
It appears that even when Trump calls someone else racist, the media has no trouble finding a way to cast the president as racist instead. By the way, one of the marines interviewed later said he found the remark strange but not offensive, and pointed out that he was ordered to yell “Geronimo!” in the Marines.
This new artificial controversy comes amid claims that Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren faces “political destruction” due to rumors that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) engaged in a multi-billion dollar ‘scheme.’
Elizabeth Warren’s outrage over Mick Mulvaney’s appointment as director of the (CFPB) could be about her own political survival.
If she lies about simple things like whether or not she is Native American then how many lies has she told when billions of dollars are on the line?
Mulvaney is in the rare position of being able to drain one of Washington’s deepest swamps and Senator “Pocahontas” Warren, the 2020 hopeful, may be collateral damage.
Conservative Treehouse writes:
“Elizabeth Warren set up the bureau to operate above any oversight. Additionally, the bureau was placed under spending authority of the federal reserve. The CFPB gets it’s operating budget from the Federal Reserve, not from congress. Again, this was set-up to keep congress from defunding the agency as a way to remove it. […]
Mick Mulvaney is now in a position to look at the books, look at the prior records within the bureau and expose the political agenda within it to the larger public. […]
Reports of the CFPB awarding lucrative contracts to left-leaning organizations is not a new thing.
Meanwhile, Leandra English, the deputy director of the government body, has sued the Trump administration to block the appointment of Mick Mulvaney as interim director of the CFPB.
Anything Mulvaney finds could prove to be detrimental to Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren.
