During a press conference given to crow about clinching the Republican nomination, Hair Drumpf took a moment out of his busy schedule to spew some racism toward Elizabeth Warren, who has not been shy about taking him on in his favorite habitat -- Twitter.

An unidentified reporter mentioned Senator Warren by name when he was interrupted by Trump. "Who, Pocahontas?"

A female reporter called Trump on it, telling him it was offensive to refer to Warren in that fashion, which was all it took for Trump to launch.

"Oh, I'm sorry about that," he said in his most unsorry voice. Turning back to the first reporter, he asked, "Pocahontas? Is that what you said?"

Then he launched his tirade, proving that he loathes Senator Warren right down to the tips of his tiny toes.

"She is a senator that's highly overrated, she's passed very little legislation, she has been a real disaster for a lot of people including the Democrats who frankly can't stand her," he answered.

All of which is provably untrue, but when has that stopped the Drumpf from spinning when he hates someone with every fiber of his being?

"She said she was Native American but she wasn't able to document it...I don't know if you'd call it a fraud or not, but she was able to get into various schools because of the fact she applied as a native American and probably able to get other things," he continued.

Drumpf added, "I think she's as Native American as I am, okay?"

I'm only surprised someone trained him to say "Native American" instead of "Indian." As for the rest of it, maybe he's upset about this.

And there's this one, of course.

In case you haven't noticed, Donald Trump really, really hates women. Hates. And he really, really hates people who aren't pure white folks like him. The real question is whether media will focus on his outlandish and ridiculous statements or start calling out his nativism in a focused, ongoing way.

He's not going to change, but we have to if we want this country to survive.
