CNN’s Jake Tapper hosted a town hall event on Monday night for Democratic 2020 candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren — and it was downright embarrassing.
At one point, Tapper questioned Warren over her bogus claims about being a Native American.
Warren became nervous and actually blamed her family for her false claims of being a Native American.
“How do you respond to people who think that, regardless of the underlying facts, the way you handled the question of your Native American heritage was tone-deaf and indicative of a lack of presidential tact?” asked a man in the audience who was attending the event.
“Well, ya know, I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family from my family,” she responded. “And, um, based on that, that’s just kind of who I am, and I do the best I can with it.”
Seriously? All she has to do is look in the mirror to see that she is not a Native American!
Warren went on to falsely state that her claiming to be a Native American has never “played any role in any job I ever got.”
This is a flat-out lie considering Harvard gave her a “woman of color” award.
The Senator then tried to change the subject saying: “I have now done 38 town halls in Massachusetts, last year. And this is my 32nd town hall since January. And what I’ve discovered is that people care a lot about what’s happening to their lives every single day and what touches them, like housing, and education, and health care. That’s the kind of reason that I’m in this fight and I’m going to stay in this fight, and I will tell you this: I’m going to fight it from the heart every inch of the way. I’ll do my best.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Warren had long claimed that she was Native American, citing her family’s high cheekbones and suspect family recipes gathered in a family cookbook titled “Pow Wow Chow.” But in October, the senator’s released DNA test showed that she’s as little as 1/1,024 Native American.
After the DNA report came out, Warren was hammered by the Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven.”
Back in October, President Trump piled on in a tweet: “Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public. Harvard called her ‘a person of color’ (amazing con), and would not have taken her otherwise!”
It’s obvious that Warren used the Native American people to further her political career so it’s going to be pretty difficult for her on the campaign trail.
