Another masterpiece of political rhetoric:

“I want to apologize. Pocahontas, I apologize to you. I apologize to you. To you I apologize,” he said. “To the fake Pocahontas, I won’t apologize.”

He went on to suggest that, should Warren win the Democratic nomination in 2020 and [if] they were to debate, he would toss an ancestry test to her and dare her to take it. In doing so, he made light of the #MeToo movement.

“We’ll take that little kit and say, we have to go it gently because we are in the Me Too generation, and we will very gently take that kit, slowly toss it” to her, Trump said, adding that he would offer $1 million to charity if she took the test and it “shows you are an Indian.”

Trump’s comments on #MeToo come on the heels of his hiring former Fox News executive Bill Shine, who left his role after being accused of mishandling a flurry of sexual harassment allegations within the network. Earlier Thursday on Air Force One, Trump also defended Republican Rep. Jim Jordan against allegations he overlooked sexual abuse during his time as a wrestling coach at Ohio State University.

“I don’t believe them at all. I believe him,” Trump said.

By which he means he doesn’t give a rat’s ass whether they’re true or not, he’s on Team Bully as opposed to Team Bullied. He’s one who proudly and forthrightly sides with the strong.

Warren was far from the only Democrat who drew Trump’s acidic rhetoric on Thursday, though. The President continued a long running fight with California Rep. Maxine Waters by slamming her intelligence.

No, that’s not “continuing a long running fight.” That’s using the power and amplification of the presidency to repeatedly call a black woman stupid. It’s disgusting. It’s not getting enough attention and it must not be normalized.

“Democrats want anarchy. They really do. And they don’t know who they are playing with, folks,” Trump said. “I said it the other day, yes, she is a low IQ individual, Maxine Waters. I said it the other day. I mean, honestly she is somewhere in the mid-60s. I believe that.”

That is disgusting.
