    We could easily create a scenario where the person is not held in high regard, but would you accept it:

    John: I'm have woodsman skills.

    Your scenario removes the element of someone claiming to be something they’re not, therefore your analogy is flawed.

    How is it a caricature? From my view, it in no way disparages Pocahontas. Warren is the one being made fun of, or disparaged, not Pocahontas. So I don't get your reasoning.
