What Did a Descendant of the REAL Pocahontas Think of President Trump's Comment about Elizabeth Warren?

Aimee Herd : Nov 29, 2017 : Robert Sheen -

The answer may surprise you.

Much has been made of President Trump's comment jokingly referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren as 'Pocahontas' earlier this week, when he honored the Navajo Code-Talker Marine Veterans at the White House. (Photo: President Trump with Code-Talkers Thomas Begay and Peter McDonald/Reuters/via Metro)

However, it apparently wasn't the President's Native American guests who took offense—not even a descendant of the real Pocahontas.

In welcoming the Code-Talker Veterans, Trump said, "I just wanted to thank you, because you're very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her 'Pocahontas.'"

This comment was referring to the fact that Elizabeth Warren—in 2012—claimed to be part Cherokee, which reportedly may have helped her gain entrance into the prestigious Harvard Law School. According to a U.S. News report, the New England Historical Genealogical Society first said Warren was 1/32 Native American, but "later recanted the claim."

A spokesman for the group said, "We have no proof that Elizabeth Warren's great great great grandmother O.C. Sarah Smith either is or is not of Cherokee descent," according to the U.S. News report.

The Navajo Veterans who were present were not offended—one even smirked at the joke—but the liberal media has been falling all over themselves ever since, calling it 'insensitive and racist.'

But what does a true descendant of the REAL Pocahontas think? (Photo: Debbie "White Dove" Porreco, a descendant of Pocahontas/Sky News/via mrctv)

According to a article, Debbie "White Dove" Porreco was asked by Sky News about the President's comment. Her reply may be surprising to some...

"I know that he uses 'Pocahontas' sometimes with Elizabeth Warren," Porreco explained, according to "He said, 'well does that offend you when I use that?' And I told him no, it doesn't offend me."

"If Pocahontas were alive today, she would be very proud of President Trump. Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, Donald Trump is going to be our hero."
