A giant banner in Haverhill, Massachusetts, comparing Senator Elizabeth Warren to Pocahontas is stirring up plenty of controversy. Neighbors are speaking out, saying they want it gone, but the owner says it’s here to stay. (with video) We spoke with Ricky Early, the man behind this giant banner picturing Sen. Elizabeth Warren wearing a headdress and a phrase reading Pocahontas Must Go, a name some critics have taken to calling her. … Trump: “It may be Pocahontas, remember that” Warren’s claim of Native American heritage was questioned in 2012 during her run for Senate.
Woman: “If you’re not an Indian, don’t lie about it because it makes the wor;d look bad.” Some people we spoke with said the sign is racially insensitive but we spoke with Early and he doesn’t agree.
