One of the hallmarks of Donald Trump’s campaign is his habit of nicknaming his opponents: “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz, “Little” Marco Rubio and “Crooked” Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s pejorative for Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (and rumored vice presidential candidate) stands out, however, precisely because it’s so ridiculous
By calling her “Goofy,” it’s as if Trump couldn’t even be bothered coming up with a better nickname for the far-left lawmaker — that’s how insignificant and unaccomplished Warren really is.
Despite her years in the Senate, Elizabeth Warren is famous for only one thing: Claiming to be of Native American heritage. She used this ploy to take advantage of affirmative action programs and reap the special privileges that “victim groups” enjoy in today’s society.
Donald Trump refuses to go along with this charade.
According to ConservativeTribune.com:
The GOP candidate recently tweeted that Warren was one of the “least effective senators in the entire U.S. Senate.” (…)
Trump then turned his attention to her claim to be Native American, calling it “phony” and the reason why she could never run for the White House or even receive a vice presidential nod:
“Goofy Elizabeth Warren didn’t have the guts to run for POTUS. Her phony Native American heritage stops that and VP cold.”
Warren stepped right into Trump’s trap.
When she responded to him on Twitter, he replied:
“Isn’t it funny when a failed Senator like goofy Elizabeth Warren can spend a whole day tweeting about Trump & gets nothing done in Senate?”
When The New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd asked the candidate if “he had been chided by any Republicans” for his Twitter war with the Democrac senator, the presumptive nominee responded, “You mean Pocahontas?”
Liberals still can’t understand that it’s precisely those kinds of politically incorrect remarks that make Donald Trump so endearing to millions of Americans. They’re tired of the left’s obsession with racial division and grievance mongering, and see Trump as the man powerful enough to sweep away all that insanity once and for all.
