Haaland: It's 'exhausting' to keep up with Trump's 'ignorance and racism' for Native Americans

Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.) took aim at President Trump for what she described as his "ignorance and racism" for Native Americans.

“It's completely exhausting to try to keep up with so much of his ignorance and racism for native people," Haaland, one of the first two Native American women in Congress, told CNN on Monday.

"At this point, I feel like he needs to be ignored," she added.




Haaland’s comments come after Trump mocked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who recently launched her 2020 presidential bid, over her past claims of Native American heritage.

2. Thank you, Rep. Haaland

But as exhausting as it is, we have to keep after it. Right down to the characterization of Sen. Warren's "past claims of Native American heritage." Sen. Warren said her family history was that she had Native ancestry in her bloodline. After months of juvenile name-calling by the alleged leader of the free world, Warren took a DNA test which showed, lo and behold! that her family history was correct.

Under ordinary circumstances, that would be enough to settle this nontroversy. But for some reason, the media feel compelled to keep reporting on Trump's incurable bigotry as if it had substance.
