Via TPM, Sarah Huckabee Sanders doesn’t think calling Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” is a racial slur.
“She said it was a racial slur,” ABC News’ Jonathan Karl pressed. “What is your response to that?”
“I think that’s a ridiculous response.”
“Why is it appropriate for the President to use a racial slur in any context?” NBC’s Kristen Welker asked.
“I don’t believe that it is appropriate for him to make a racial slur,” Sanders said, “Or anybody else.”
“A lot of people feel as though this is a racial slur,” Welker said.
“Like I said, I don’t think that it is, and I don’t think that was — certainly not the President’s intent,” Sanders said.
So if I called Ms. Sanders a honky cracker, that’s not a racial slur? Well, good to know.
Not that I would ever do it.
