The Daily Show's Trevor Noah Explains 'Pocahontas' Elizabeth Warren Insult
Lots of white liberals think Donald Trump was being raaaaacist by calling Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas." An actual descendant of Pocahontas wasn't. Much like the Redskins (see Redskins Keep “Offensive” Name. Native Americans Don’t Give a Rodent’s Hind End and Liberals at ESPN: Native Americans Too Dumb to Know ‘Redskins’ is Offensive), Native Americans need white leftists to be offended for them. According to white leftists. If you come from at least one marginalized group, you can't make your own decisions.
An easy lay up for The Daily Show. All Trevor Noah had to do was parrot progressive opinions back to progressives. With a few bad jokes about Russia.
Instead, he sided with Donald Trump?
“Elizabeth Warren did something problematic, the kind of thing we rightfully call each other out for every single day. So as weird as it is to say, in his own racially offensive way, Donald Trump was being woke. Yeah, and that’s unfortunately the truth.”
Ok, not "sided" with Donald Trump. But unlike CNN or MSNBC, Noah explained WHY Trump was calling her "Pocahontas." Trevor Noah. On Comedy Central. On a show made famous by a former student of Warren's. Have all these sexual assault allegations ripped the space time continuum?
Seems the left is being called out for their hypocrisy on a few issues, no? And they're "attempting" to make some kind of amends. Or they know what battles they'll lose.
And as an aside, it's supposed to be FAUXcahontas. If the president is going to bite off the Tea Party's rhymes, get it right. Let's not tarnish the name of a real person by attaching a shill to her.
