Monday, during the White House ceremony honoring the Native American code talkers, President Trump infuriated the liberal media by referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas.”
Warren immediately complained saying Trump used a “racial slur,” but one real descendant of Pocahontas has said in the past that President Trump’s nickname for Warren is not offensive at all.
In an interview with Sky News, Debbie “White Dove” Porreco stated that President Trump personally asked her if his nickname for Warren offended her in any way.
“I know he uses ‘Pocahontas’ sometimes with Elizabeth Warren,” Porreco stated.
“He said, ‘Well does that offend you when I use that?’’ she said. “And I told him no, it doesn’t offend me.”
Porreco pointed out that she thinks the real Pocahontas would approve of President Trump is she was still alive.
“If Pocahontas were alive today, she would be very proud of President Trump,” Porreco stated. “Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, Donald Trump is going to be our hero.”
Sky News interviewed another Native American woman, Irene Bedard, who was the voice of Pocahontas in the 1995 Disney animated movie.
“Do I think Pocahontas would be a fan of Trump? Oh no,” Bedard stated. “Misogyny and bullying and name-calling at its finest. It is not intelligent discourse.”
After Trump’s remarks, Warren criticized him in an appearance on MSNBC
“This was supposed to be an event to honor heroes, people who put it all on the line for our country,” Warren said.
“It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States can’t even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur,” she continued.
Warren’s claim that she is Native American was first questioned during her 2012 Senate run.
Also, when she worked at Harvard Law School, the school used her alleged Native heritage to defend itself against claims that the faculty lacked diversity.
But in 2014 Breitbart pointed out that there is “no credible evidence that exists to support” Warren’s claim that she has Native American heritage.
