WATCH: Pocahontas Descendant Tells Tucker That Elizabeth Warren Should Take DNA Test

"It's offensive that she doesn't take it."

On Tuesday, speaking with Tucker Carlson on Fox, Debbie White Dove Porreco, who claims she can trace her lineage back to Pocahontas and John Rolfe, said Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has claimed she has native American ancestry, should take a DNA test to prove that her claim is true. Warren has refused to do so. Porreco also said Warren should stop claiming President Trump is using a “racist slur” when he mocks her by calling her “Pocahontas.”

Carlson asked, “What’s your challenge for Senator Warren?”

Porreco answered, “Well, my challenge would be, I don’t know where she’s saying, how she’s saying ’Pocahontas' is a racial slur. Pocahontas is a real person.”

Carlson stated, “Well, it seems like a compliment. I mean, when people point out that you’re related to Pocahontas, do you take offense?”

Porreco replied, “No, I don’t. I don’t. I was in a restaurant the other day in Palm Beach and I was leaving with someone and the person said, ‘Oh, you’re with Pocahontas.’ It wasn’t offensive to me at all; I was proud that they said that.”

Carlson pressed, “So how do you view Senator Warren’s claim that she is an American Indian? Do you believe her?”

Porreco answered, “Well, I respect Senator Warren as a U.S. senator, but I just wish she’d take the DNA test. And If she took the DNA test, then that would end a lot of this controversy. And If she was part American-Indian, I’d be the first one to welcome her into our heritage."

Carlson agreed. “Amen. Maybe she’s related to Pocahontas, too; I mean, weird things have happened. Why do you think she won’t take the DNA test? It doesn’t cost much.”

Porreco said, “I know; I know. Maybe she’s afraid she’s not. It’s not right; it’s offensive that she doesn’t take it, but you can’t make somebody take something if they don’t want to.”

Carlson: “Of course you can’t. But if she were here, you’d encourage her to take the DNA test?”

Porreco: “Oh, yes. Yes, I would.”
