Today, while honoring Navajo Code Breakers, “your favorite President” used a racial slur for no reason whatsoever while also standing in front of a portrait of Andrew Jackson, who signed the Indian Removal Act.

When this happened a couple of hours ago, I didn’t even bother. I mean, what else can you say? I am not shocked. Who is shocked? No one is shocked! This is what we’ve come to expect from Donald Trump, and we’ve also come to expect that it will dominate the news cycle for three hours and it’ll never be mentioned again.

But, let’s at least let Elizabeth Warren say her piece.

What really galls me is how Sarah Sanders — clearly flustered — tries to inelegantly defend Trump while somehow making everything worse.

What? Why is she bringing Elizabeth Warren into this now, too? No one was finding that offensive today! People were finding the use of a racial slur that insults the very people Trump was honoring offensive.
