WASHINGTON, D.C.– We’re sure you’ve heard about POTUS’ latest unfiltered moment.

Nope, this time it wasn’t on Twitter but at a Navajo Veterans event.

“Although we have a representative in congress who they say was here a long time ago, they call her Pocahontas,” Trump said.

Yep. He. Went. There.

As you can imagine, a lot of folks including Senator Elizabeth Warren who Trump was talking about, says the “Pocahontas reference” was racist.

“You know, I really couldn’t believe it,” Warren told CNN. “President Trump couldn’t even make it through a ceremony to honor these men without throwing in a racial slur.”

Well, Eric Trump says his daddy’s use of the word wasn’t offensive. In fact, Eric took to Twitter to explain:

Uhhh …what?

Well for anyone who doesn’t know … Disney’s Pocahontas was based on the real life Pocahontas, not Senator Elizabeth Warren.

FYI: This isn’t the first time Trump has called Warren Pocahontas or mentioned her heritage.
