Apparently Trump. It’s absolutely ridiculous.

I look forward to the day that politics can be about like actual issues and not someone’s ancestry.

...that day isn’t coming, is it?

It's just as ridiculous for Warren to be playing into as part of a clear leadup to an election campaign tbh.

And DWV was just mimicking Trump's response to the news.

Well if she didn't want to be mocked as Pocahontas before, she's certainly earned it now.

Lmfao at this being the top goddamn story today. Come on man, that's not news.
^ Definitely not worth being the top story of the day, but if she wants to fight back against Trumpian nonsense with something that's equally unimportant, why not? She might (i) stop him talking about it or (ii) embarrass him into honouring his word and giving a million dollars to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center. Either one is a win!

A story that I though would get more coverage is about the 53,000 voter applications put on hold in Georgia. Kemp is blocking voters' rights on a bureaucratic technicality while simultaneously running as a candidate in the electorial fight. Has anyone ever seen a boxing match in which one of the boxers is also the referee? It's so obviously unfair as far as I can see. It's a blatant disruption of the democratic process, but because it's to the Republicans' advantage, there isn't a single check or balance that's stopping it - all the checks and balances are now in the hands of the Republicans.

Nah it just perpetuates the very true myth that modern politics is TMZ.

Either one is a win is right. It's a blatantly political move that waters down the legitimacy of our institutions. Whatever battle is won, the war will be lost. Not a war between Rs and Ds, a war between tribalist entertainment and doing the greater good.

I can’t believe people actually think someone should be given power over others because more people punch a hole next to their name. Stupid af.
