President Trump today went back to calling Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas,” and CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin took a moment during a panel tonight to just bring up how “racist and appalling” it is.
Warren yesterday said she agrees that the Democratic nomination process was rigged, and Trump mentioned it on Twitter today:
Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 3, 2017
The tweet was mentioned during a Situation Room panel tonight on Trump’s tweets going after the DOJ for not looking into Hillary Clinton.
But at the end of the segment, Toobin jumped in to say, “By the way, can we just point out that calling Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas is racist and appalling and not something that should be part of American political discourse?”
