Conservatives have asked it plenty of times already, and we’ll ask it again: when are the same people calling “Pocahontas” a racial slur when applied to Elizabeth Warren ever going to address the process by which the senator got that nickname (or better yet, Fauxcahontas) in the first place?

Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani weighed in on President Trump’s jab Monday:

Hang on, though … so is Nanjiani confirming that Elizabeth Warren is actually part Cherokee? Because to a lot of people, it looked like Trump was calling a white woman by the name of a famous Native American woman.

So it’s racist to call any white person “Hitler,” right?
