This got little attention, but it should, now that the great pivot has taken place and Trump is “presidential.”

Trotting out some of his favorite lines, Trump called Warren “Pocahontas,” ginning up an old controversy about Warren’s racial background. When running for the Senate in 2012, Warren’s opponent Scott Brown accused her of lying about having Native American ancestry to gain elite jobs, a claim that’s been eagerly seized upon by Trump and his supporters. At Monday’s rally, Trump started by calling Warren Pocahontas and then specifically attacked her for not, in his estimation, having nice enough bone structure.


“She said oh, well, look at my cheekbones,” Trump said, indicating high cheekbones with his gestures. “You find anything nice about her cheekbones? I dunno. So, look at her cheekbones,” he concluded.
