Warren Fires Back at Trump, but Media Doesn’t Ask If ‘Pocahontas’ Story is True

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) spoke at the National Congress of American Indians in Washington, D.C., in an unscheduled speech.

There, Warren used the opportunity to criticize President Donald Trump’s claims that she used a fake Native American identity to get a professorship and tenure at Harvard University and called her Pocahontas on social media.

The media ran with Warren’s criticism, but in the case of this NBC News article [1], they did not question Warren’s claim to her Native American ancestry.
