John McCain Honors WWII Navajo Code Talkers In Viral Tweet — And Slams Trump In The Process

By Mike Walsh

On Monday, Donald Trump held a ceremony at the White House to honor the bravery of the Navajo Code Talkers, who served alongside U.S. Marines during World War II.

But even as he praised their service, Trump couldn't help injecting politics into the mix, using the event to slam Democratic U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, whom he regularly refers to derogatorily as "Pocahontas" because of her Native American heritage, which the President constantly challenges. 

"I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here. Although, we have a representative in Congress they say was here a long time ago -- they call her Pocahontas! But you know what, I like you. You are special people."
