Descendants of the real-life Pocahontas are alive and well, and it seems that they side with our President when it comes to being politically correct. Debbie “White Dove” Porreco, a relative of the Native American princess, decided to set the record straight recently when asked by reporters if she believed the President’s use of the name when referring to Elizabeth Warren was inappropriate.
According to her, President Trump asked her directly if she was ok with him using the name in the way he does. “I know that he uses ‘Pocahontas’ sometimes with Elizabeth Warren,” Porreco explained in an interview with Sky News. “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,” she went on. “Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, Donald Trump is going to be our hero.”
According to the Daily Caller, Ms. Porreco knows firsthand the meaning of hard work and dedication, something that she shares with our President. As it turns out, she grew up poor on the Mattaponi Indian Reservation, where her father served as Chief. She left the reservation for college, and then worked for a while as a flight attendant before settling into Palm Beach, Florida, and is currently a regular guest at the President’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
“Sometimes when I’m dining at Mar-a-Lago, I think to myself, ‘You’ve come a long way from that Indian reservation you started in,” she said. “Pocahontas had dreams and went to England. My dreams brought me to Palm Beach.”
Maybe next time the leftists decide to get all high and mighty, and say that the President’s use of a certain name is racist, they might want to check in with the people for whom this name matters the most. And as it turns out, Ms. Porreco actually gave Trump permission to do it, which really takes the wind out of the sails for the argument of our President’s blind racism, now doesn’t it?
Share this if you think more people should know about Debbie Porreco’s support for our President, and want the world to know that to those closest to the real Pocahontas, her name is no racist slur at all!
