Look out, Elizabeth Warren, there’s a REAL Pocahontas in the Senate!
Everyone knows that President Trump loves to call leftist Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” because of her fake claims of Native American ancestry. But far less known is that Warren’s neighbor to the north, New Hampshire Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen, actually is a direct descendant of Pocahontas. And, unlike Warren, she has the documentation to prove it.
We found this out in an interview with Dana Bash on CNN. The “fun fact” of Shaheen’s interesting ancestry was made even more fun when CNN brought up Trump’s nickname for Warren and showed a clip of him mocking her. Bash even asked Shaheen if she has ever told Warren the news about her famous 11th great grandmother. Shaheen laughed and said, “Kind of a sensitive topic, so probably not.” Awww, poor Lizzy! Trump’s getting under her skin!
LOL, gotta love it when even CNN makes fun of Elizabeth Warren and points out her lies!
Watch the hilarious clip below:
Warren infamously earned the nickname Pocahontas, or Fauxcahontas to some, because she lied about having Native American ancestry to get a position at Harvard University. Former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown even challenged Warren to prove her heritage by taking a DNA test.
Trump’s use of the nickname has been controversial, with one reporter calling it offensive. Trump once apologized for calling Warren Pocahontas – “because I think it’s a tremendous insult to Pocahontas” – but he continues to call her that, most recently at the NRA convention.
Warren is seen as a likely 2020 challenger and President Trump has said he hopes she runs against him, “That would be a dream come true…I think she would lose so badly…Pocahontas would not be proud of her as her representative, believe me.”
Personally, rather than “Pocahontas,” I’m hoping we get to call her “FORMER Senator” when she loses her reelection bid in 2018 and, with it, all dreams of a run at the Oval Office.
What do you think: Will Elizabeth Warren get the chance to run against President Trump in 2020? Tell us in the comments below!
