It was on display again yesterday at a ceremony to honor the Navajo Code Talkers who played a huge part in winning the war in the Pacific. The code spoken in their native tongue is the only one the Japanese never cracked.
President Trump just couldn’t resist poking fun at Dizzy Lizzy Warren. Talk about a target rich environment.
Trump Knocks ‘Pocahontas’ at Event Honoring Native American Veterans
“You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump said to the three Navajo veterans who helped the U.S. Marine Corps develop a secret code during World War II. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”
Warren slammed the president over the “racial slur” moments after he made it.
“It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States can’t even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur,” the Massachusetts senator said during an appearance on MSNBC shortly afterward.
[CtH: Bless your heart, honey, but that wasn’t a racial slur. It was a well deserved kick in the butt to FAKES like you who try to steal honor. My guess is that actual Native Americans find you and others like you truly offensive and laughed at Trump’s joke.]
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump’s remark, saying it was not a racial slur.
“I think what most people find offensive is Sen. Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career,” she told reporters.

Keith Olbermann: ‘I am retiring from political commentary’
OLBERPUKE WAS WORKING FOR GQ FOR FREE. MAYBE HE WAS ANGRY BECAUSE THEY NAMED COLON COPPERDICK THEIR MAN OF THE YEAR OR MAYBE HE’S MAD BECAUSE NO ONE HAS ACCUSED HIM OF SEXUAL IMPROPRIETY.
GQ special correspondent Keith Olbermann announced Monday that he is “retiring from political commentary in all media venues” during his online program “The Resistance.”
The former ESPN, MSNBC, Current TV and Fox Sports host said he was “confident” President Trump’s presidency would end soon, thereby making it the “correct moment” to exit from making further political commentary.
[CtH: Oh dang! I thought he meant he was going to actually GO AWAY, not just focus on his own show. Pblt.]
Gutierrez to Announce He Won’t Seek Re-Election
EITHER HE’S ABOUT TO BE ACCUSED OF SLIPPING THE OLD JALAPENO INTO SOMEBODY’S TACO OR HE GOT A REAL GOOD DEAL ON A BURRITO STAND.
NBC 5 has learned Congressman Luis Gutierrez will announce Tuesday he is not running for re-election after 24 years on Capitol Hill, sources say. Gutierrez telephoned key Democratic leaders late this afternoon to let them know of his plans. Calls to Gutierrez Monday evening have not been returned.
Already printing petitions Monday night– to begin the process of getting signatures before next Monday’s deadline — is Cook County Commissioner Jesus Chuy Garcia. Ald. Carlos Ramirez Rosa is considering a congressional race. This will also leave an opening on the county board should Garcia opt for Gutierrez’s seat.
Those interested in running for Gutierrez’s seat besides Garcia and Ramirez Rosa include Ald. Joe Moreno and Ald. George Cardenas.
[CtH: Can someone explain to me why the news has to do a story about how he’s going to do this, then another one when he actually does it?]
Congressman Slept With And Then Sued Allegedly Drug-Addicted Staffer
CONGRESSMAN GEICO CAVEMAN
Texas Democratic Rep. Al Green had sex with a staffer who he said was a drug addict and then sued her when she threatened to go public with claims she suffered a hostile work environment, saying he “will not be extorted or blackmailed.”
[CtH: Yeah, that makes total sense. He had a staffer he believed was a drug addict AND he sexually abused her? Lemme think about that one for a minute.]
Conyers scandal shows what Dems really think about harassment
WITH ALL THE TAX MONEY HE’S STOLEN YOU’D THINK HE COULD AFFORD A BETTER JACKET.
There are sexual harassers, and then there is John Conyers, the Democrat from Detroit who made his congressional office an adjunct of his libido.
The evidence suggests Conyers believed that as a 27-term congressman, he was entitled to the Washingon, DC, equivalent of the Ottoman Imperial Harem.
He routinely hit on his female staffers and his office was a den of sexual intrigue — allegedly featuring a jealous wife and a vindictive mistress — that properly belongs in a Bravo reality show if the network ever extends its “Real Housewives” franchise to Capitol Hill.
Dating Tips For Prominent Democrats
HMMM…HE MUST ONLY HAVE ONE JACKET
[CtH: Or the same jacket in different shades, kinda like the Rhinestone Cowpie’s vast array of gaudy “cowgirl” hats?]
Being a Democrat leader has always been a traditional path to making special new friends for guys who can’t cut it on looks and personality. Face it – no one ever said, “You know who’s hot? Al Franken. I bet he can bench his body weight.”
You have a right to extracurricular activities; why, liberal women will tell you themselves that the mere fact that you are quite willing to kill babies by the millions entitles you to all sorts of fringe benefits!
Now, there may to be some ungrateful ladies who make some allegations about you for whatever reason, most likely their participation in the vast right wing conspiracy. This puts you in a tough place because you have to balance the liberal principle of believing the victim with the liberal principle of liberals not being held accountable for the terrible things they do.
