As the mainstream media foams at the mouth about President Trump’s latest dig at Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren, a descendant of the actual woman says Pocahontas would like the president.
Sky News talked to Debbie “White Dove” Porreco and Irene Bedard, an actress who voiced “Pocahontas” in a Disney movie.

“If Pocahontas were alive today, she’d be very proud of President Trump,” Porreco said, while Bedard disagreed.
“I know that he uses ‘Pocahontas’ sometimes with Elizabeth Warren,” Porreco said, referring to the latest time on Monday.
“He said, ‘Well does that offend you when I use that,” she added, apparently referring to a conversation she had with the president about it.
“And I told him no, it doesn’t offend me,” Porreco said.
Meanwhile, Bedard, the one who was the pretend Pocahontas, was very offended.
“Misogyny and bullying and name-calling at its finest,” she declared.
Porreco told Sky News she supports Trump’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.
“You get the ones out that are committing crimes,” she said.
“Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, President Trump is gonna be our hero,” Porreco said.
The mainstream media generated the controversy again when Trump took a swipe at Warren during an event Monday honoring the role Navajo Code Talkers played during World War II.

One such Code Talker said he wasn’t offended by Trump’s comment.
“The Marines made us yell ‘Geronimo’ when we jumped out of planes and that didn’t offend me either,” he told CNN Analyst Joshua Green.
