.@HillaryClinton men "get off the reservation"? Wow lady, talk about a freudian slip.

@CNN Her own husband wandered 'off the reservation' many times and she didn't handle that well.

@thehill she just made a racial slur against native Americans

@jaketapper plus this a Racist comment towards Native Americans

Sincerely wish people were more mindful of the phrase "off the reservation" and NOT use it. https://t.co/HuwIN4UYtY

What will it take for political leaders to stop using “Went off the reservation” as a term? It’s racist, people. Sheesh.

@HillaryClinton you want to explain your 'off the reservation' remark? 'cause this cherokee woman didn't find it fucking funny.

So, will this be a drag on Hillary-mentum? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
— Jeryl Bier (@JerylBier) April 29, 2016

Q: So political candidates can say "off the reservation" without correctly being called a racist?
