Sanders Supporter Nina Turner: Hillary Used ‘Terrible’ Term When She Said ‘Off the Reservation’

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” former State Senator Nina Turner (D-OH), who is supporting Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) criticized Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for using the term “off the reservation” to describe GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s behavior because “the colonists of this country stole the land from our Native American brothers and sisters, and government put them on reservations.”

Turner said, “I know the secretary said that men — she’s been able to deal with men off the reservation. As a historian, I would caution any of us in this country to talk about anybody being off the reservation. Let us not forget that the colonists of this country stole the land from our Native American brothers and sisters, and government put them on reservations. So, we have to be careful with that type of language as well.” And that the term was “terrible.”

Anchor Jake Tapper added, “A — yeah, a lot of people not aware of it, but the term ‘off the reservation,’ very offensive to a lot of Native Americans. Thanks for that reminder.”
