Well, well, well.

What slimeball has Dances With Russians hocked up lately?

Donald Trump refers to Elizabeth Warren as ‘Pocahontas’ during meeting with Native Americans
The Telegraph ^ | 11/27/17 | Rozina Sabur

Donald Trump has been criticised for using a racial slur during an event honouring Native American veterans.

The US president was welcoming three Navajo code talkers from the Second World War to the Oval Office on Monday afternoon when he referred to Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic senator, as “Pocahontas”.

During remarks praising their service, he said: “You were here long before any of us were here.  Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas. But you know what, I like you.”

Two Second World War Navajo “code talkers” stood at the podium, with a third seated in a wheelchair as Mr Trump made the remarks, which were greeted with awkward silence.

They were among 29 young volunteers from the Navajo tribe who joined the Marines in 1942 and created a secret code for the military using the Navajo language as a code.

The president has repeatedly mocked the Massachusetts senator for claims she made about being part Native American.

Having said that, I sure wish he’d call her “Fauxahontas”

Of course you do.
Freepers think this whole thing is a knee-slapper :

Trump is a master at communicating in ways that 99.9% of the populationdumbfucks who voted for him  understands, and his nicknames are no exception.

Some of the faithful get a tad uneasy about this brilliant PR move:

I can’t imagine WWII heroes want to waste their remaining precious time on this earth hearing about Ms Warren.

Did anybody notice that he was standing with the Navajo in front of a painting of Andrew Jackson? Yikes.

Fake News.

I’ll bet there was even a hint of a smile on the faces of those hardened warriors.

Sadly, I don’t think this one will turn out well for Trump. Making the Pocahontas reference in front of American Indians, and highly respected Code Talkers at that, was a mistake. There was apparently a dead silence after he said that.

In short, Trump forgot the first rule of public speaking: KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE!

There is a time and place for politics and playing name game with idiots like the squaw.

Honoring WW2 war vets/heroes is not the place nor time.

Bad judgement in my opinion.

Another Freeper insists that the stony silence afterwards was misinterpreted :

You seem to think that the Navajo are a people without a sense of humor. Or a people who don’t understand the use of irony. They may not be much for laughing out loud, ha-ha,

but I’m sure the Navajo from Cameron to Kayenta and throughout the Rez into the far reaches of New Mexico understood the point the President was trying to make.

Justice Department charging Russian spies and criminal hackers in Yahoo intrusion
The Washington Post ^ | 15 March 2017 | Ellen Nakashima

Posted on 3/15/2017, 9:38:37 AM by Theoria

The Justice Department is set to announce Wednesday the indictments of two Russian spies and two criminal hackers in connection with the heist of 500 million Yahoo user accounts in 2014, marking the first U.S. criminal cyber charges ever against Russian government officials.

The indictments target two members of the Russian intelligence agency FSB, and two hackers hired by the Russians.

The charges include hacking, wire fraud, trade secret theft and economic espionage, according to officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the charges have not yet been announced. The indictments are part of the largest hacking case brought by the United States.

The charges are unrelated to the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. But the move reflects the U.S. government’s increasing desire to hold foreign governments accountable for malicious acts in cyberspace.

The FBI and the Justice Department declined to comment.

The United States does not have an extradition treaty with Russia, but officials have said that taking steps such as charges and imposing sanctions can be a deterrent. People also sometimes slip up and travel to a country that is able and willing to transfer them to the United States for prosecution.

So far the WP is the only source that blames the Russians. Maybe they just made it up to get the attention off of Richard Maddow’s debacle last night?

Russia has lots of pretty good hackers, but the fact that they’re Russian doesn’t necessarily mean they’re Russian “spies” or “officials”…. not every American criminal is an American “spy” or “official” (unless you’re a journalist with an Iranian/Russian/Chinese/etc. government news source).
