Near the end of the show Monday, President Trump referred again to Senator Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas – this time, at the Navajo Veterans’ Event. John calls upon American Indian Center Executive Director Heather Miller to unpack his use of that name. Then, the Washington Post proves journalism right with the help of one Jaime Phillips.
