Oops: Bill Maher Refers to Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas”
Maher: “Come on. They don’t like you, Pocahontas”
Yesterday, Professor Jacobson penned a compelling argument about the dangers of being “branded” by President Trump: Trump brands tend to spread . . . and stick.
The latest person to be branded, he explained, is Elizabeth Warren, who falsely claimed to be Native American in an attempt to further her career. You can read the details here.
Speaking at the NRA convention, Trump referred to Warren as “Pocahontas,” and the prof observed that “Trump is branding her. And being someone who was a fake Indian is her brand. She’ll never shake it.”
Indeed, not only will she never shake it, but now even her most fawning admirers are calling her “Pocahontas” to her face.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) didn’t appear to take kindly to comedian Bill Maher calling her “Pocahontas” to her face, a reference to President Trump’s derogatory nickname for her.
During an interview on HBO’s “Real Time” that aired Friday, Maher criticized Trump’s tax plan as favoring the wealthy and asked Warren why more working-class people still backed Trump and weren’t with the Democratic Party.
“They’re still with him. They’re not with you,” he said. “Explain to me what that disconnection is.”
“Actually, I’m going to push back. I disagree with you,” Warren said. “When you talk—”
“Well, his fans are not with you,” Maher shot back. “Come on. They don’t like you, Pocahontas.”
He grinned and his left-leaning crowd laughed, but Warren didn’t smile or even acknowledge the joke, moving on with her remarks about the progressive agenda.
What I find striking about this exchange—besides her apparent delusion that Trump supporters are “with her”—is that Maher is the one to deploy the “Pocahontas” brand and to raucous audience laughter and approval, no less.
Maher’s giddiness over Warren resulted in one of the most embarrassing and cringe-worthy displays of groveling adulation I’ve ever seen.
hard impossible to imagine that Maher slamming her as “Pocahontas.”
Yet a few years later he does just that. Something’s shifted, and it may well be devastating to Warren’s brand.

She actually did pretty well to avoid snapping at that. I didn’t think her self-control was that good. Or maybe she’s not really paying much attention to what anyone else is saying.
Someone on TV has been reading Professor Jacobson.
She managed to avoid snapping, but you could tell that she did not like it at all.
Warren’s belief is not so much a delusion as it is an attempt to proliferate fake news.
Then again, one can only hope Warren is deluded as much as she is corrupt: Hillary Clinton II.
No one seems to mention this, but Warren’s fraudulent claim to being part American Indian gave her benefits to the exclusion of genuine American Indians who were behind Warren in line for them.
Those American Indians should speak up about the denial of the benefits that would have otherwise awaited them.
Their lives were changed irreparably because of Warren’s theft of their entitlements.
She got some pushback from a few folks, but there wasn’t a whole lot of media attention drawn to it, surprisingly enough.
What are you talking about? I dare you to name one thing she got that would otherwise have gone to a genuine Indian.
How do you know there wasn’t another applicant for the position that was a genuine Native American whose other qualifications were just slightly less compelling than hers?
Which is the point. These quota systems were supposedly set up for a reason. And that reason was not for rich, entitled, lying old white women to game the system to get ahead.
Rule #4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
I watched most of her interview with Maher and It was full of half-truths and distortions. The things she claims that made America grow are absurd. It’s like the old canard that all heroin addicts started with milk inferring that milk leads to drug use. Things like the minimum wage created growth? Huh? That all of the regulations that the Dems have placed on Wall Street and the banks has made the system better? It’s like watching a Vitamix production at COSTCO. The guy talks so fast and the lies he tells are so good sounding that your mind doesn’t stop to process the meaning. She is so passionate and full of fury that you think she is telling the truth but she is a liar fo the first order.
I like my Vitamixer. It can make ice cream, starting with ice, cream, and fruit. What’s not to love about a blender with the power of a lawnmower motor?
Yes… but will it blend?
Both Trump and Maher got it wrong, it’s really FAUX-cahontas.
That was my first thought – Trump! You screwed the insult up, get it straight!!! At here in the wild, wild web we’ve been calling her Fauxcanhontas for years now.
And personally, I always favored Lie-awatha.
I think it was last night on “Sixty Minutes” where a JournoList admonished Bloomberg that he will not enter heaven merely because he is a white male billionaire. He wanted to say white male billionaire Jew, but that is, apparently, a step too far, even for today’s [class] diversitists. So, who can blame Warren for pursuing a trans-class for security and benefits.
Tom S, here in Massachusetts she goes by many names. Periodically new ones are added, although not all gain popularity:
Granny Warren (for her nattering tone)
Chief Spreading Bull
The Fake Indian
Chief Running Mouth
Chief Sitting Down
I don’t think you get it. Maher’s calling her “Pocahantas” was a subtle dig at Trump’s people, a quick way to remind Warren that THEY consider her a fraud, not himself.
Doesn’t seem to hold a grudge, she’s quick to bury the hatchet.
” in an attempt to further her career. ”
Fraudulently claiming “native american” heritage wasn’t just an ATTEMPT to further her career – she succeeded. Wildly so. It was the foundation of her career.
She got hired based on that, then hired again (by Harvard, no less) based again on that fraudulent claim.
