Dear Frank Bruni, It appears that USA Today is already off to the races. Best, Retiring Guy

As in sprinting. (In their favorite lane.)

“Pocahontas” won’t be lonely for long. 
As other Democrats join Elizabeth Warren in the contest for the party’s presidential nomination, President Trump will assign them their own nicknames, different from hers but just as derisive. There’s no doubt. 
But how much heed will we in the media pay to this stupidity? Will we sprint to Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker or Mike Bloomberg for a reaction to what Trump just called one of them and then rush back to him for his response to that response? Or will we note Trump’s latest nonsense only briefly and pivot to matters more consequential? [emphasis added]

Step 1 
President Donald Trump mocked Elizabeth Warren's nearly two-week-old Instagram Live video in a pair of Sunday night tweets, again using a racially insensitive nickname to describe the Massachusetts senator.

Awaiting further developments
