Forrest Trump Proves SNL Right Once Again

Talking Points Memo reports:

Eric Trump on Tuesday argued that an ABC News reporter didn’t have any right calling the President’s use of “Pocahontas” as an attack offensive. President Donald Trump on Monday called Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) Pocahontas, an attack he uses often, during a White House event celebrating Navajo code talkers.

Eric Trump, 33, appeared to be referring in his tweet to ABC News White House correspondent Johnathan Karl, who asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders Monday about Trump’s attack line: “Why did he feel the need to say something that is offensive to many people while honoring the Navajo code talkers, these genuine American heroes?”

The irony of an ABC reporter (whose parent company Disney has profited nearly half a billion dollars on the movie “Pocahontas”) inferring that the name is “offensive” is truly staggering to me.

Eric, let’s have a chat.

Try to keep up. 1/

First, lets start with irony.

I know you used it in your tweet, but tbh, you prob don’t know what it means.

i·ro·ny
noun
the expression of one’s meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect. 2/

Okay, now lets break down the ABC reporter/ Disney thing.

Using the word “Pocahontas” as the title of a movie about, “Pocahontas” is not offensive. It would be weird if they called the movie something else. That’s kind of how history works. You don’t get to make up names. 3/

Now, when your dad used “Pocahontas,” he wasn’t actually talking about Pocahontas. He was talking about Elizabeth Warren. That’s how it becomes offensive. Does this make sense to you? Maybe you need examples? 4/

Example 1:

If I am talking about you and I say, “oh, its Eric Trump” – not offensive.

If I see some person (not you) on the street with a fucked up looking face and teeth and say “Hey, are you Eric Trump?” – offensive 5/

the irony of an ineffectual son (whose parent has profited nearly a million dollars on fraudulent charities set up through family foundations) inferring that the company affiliation of a reporter is disqualifying is truly staggering to me

Ummm, bright eyes, that movie was about celebrating the actual person Pocahontas. Your father using it as a term of derision for a Dem senator in front of heroes is what is offensive.

Eric Trump is a buffoon. And the correct term for his incorrect statement is “imply”, not “infer”. Like it is easy to infer that Eric Trump is an idiot when he implies that his father is a normal human being.
