    GOP lawmaker calls Warren ‘Sacagawea’ during Fox News appearance

    https://thehill.com/homenews/media/4...ews-appearance

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) piggybacked Friday on President Trump’s name-calling of Sen. Elizabeth Warren over her claims of Native American heritage, calling the Massachusetts Democrat “Sacagawea” during an appearance on Fox News.

    Trump has repeatedly called Warren, who announced this week she is exploring a 2020 run against him, “Pocahontas” over the claims.

    Republicans seem to want to embarrass themselves daily. "Trump acts like a fat toddler and gets away with it so I'm gonna try it too!".

    I remember when Republican lawmakers were adults and not preschoolers.

    I thought name calling on the playground was supposed to fade out when you reach 10 years old.

    It needs to be pointed out that he did this while co-hosting a Fox News program. State Media?

    I guess that is better than saying "impeach the motherfugger."

    That's a good one. Didn't think of that one.

    I'd like Republicans to explain why it's okay to refer to Warren by an ethnic slur for not having enough Native American DNA for their tastes, but it's not okay to refer to Bernie Sanders as the "kike candidate" for not being Jewish enough or Kamala Harris the "n***** candidate" for not being black enough.

    For the same reason it's ok to call people "white trash", or, "hillbillies".
