Senator Elizabeth Warren, a possible contender for the Democrats’ 2020 nomination, has one celeb in Hollywood not only willing to defend her, but to portray her in defiance of criticism from President Trump:

From The Hill:
When asked which political character she’d want to play, Lawrence told ITK, “I could play Sen. [Elizabeth] Warren as Pocahontas.”
The quip was an apparent reference to a slur lobbed at the Massachusetts Democrat by President Trump.
The 27-year-old actress has been an outspoken critic of Trump, saying last year that any face-to-face encounter she would have with the president would likely end “with a martini to the face.”

Not at all, and it’s the perfect backfire:
Right, because you’re also not Native American https://t.co/cXi5MR1q60

First of all, it’s FAUXCAHONTAS, not Pocahontas! (Unlike Warren, Pocahontas was an ACTUAL Native American.) But I will agree that Jen is certainly qualified to ACT like a WASPy white woman PRETENDING to be Native American to get ahead in academia & politics…#HarveyWood #phonies https://t.co/JRJRaJ0af5

Interesting, an Academy award winning actress playing the role of a woman who should win an award for acting like she’s Native American.
