How timely.

Fox News host Pete Hegseth mocked Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s slumping poll numbers and called her “Pocahontas” during the “Fox & Friends” Thanksgiving episode.

During the segment about a poll that showed Warren’s support at 14%, Hegseth criticized the senator for saying the polls were not concerning.

"It's always what politicians say when they're losing. Don't follow the polls, it doesn't matter," the host asserted.

"I just love how optimistic she was. You've dropped actually in half from where you were before," guest host Dean Cain said. "That's bad news."

“It’s Thanksgiving so it’s only fitting we got a little Pocahontas in there right at the end,” Hegseth added. “Her poll numbers aren’t doing so great. We’re going to move on to the parade.”

Hegseth’s nickname for Warren is one frequently used by President Trump. When Warren announced her bid for the nomination in February, Trump used the nickname again on Twitter and signed off “See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!”

In August, Warren apologized for releasing a DNA test that proved one of her distant relatives was a Native American.
