Sen. John McCain took to Twitter on Tuesday to rebuke the hubbub that began Monday during an event in the Oval Office to honor Navajo code talkers.

Trump started taking flak — including native American groups — over the comment, which prompted Warren to use what she called a slur in order to do a little fundraising.
