Trump Trolls Fake Indian Warren After She Announces Presidential Candidacy
Saturday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) officially announced that she will run for president in 2020, just days after apologizing for applying to the Texas State Bar using her fake Native American ancestry.
Naturally, her announcement drew the ire of President Donald J. Trump, who noted her fraudulently-peddled Native background.
“Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!” Trump said on Twitter.
It is impossible for Democrats to defend Warren after years of calling white college frat boys “racists” for wearing sombreros, or dressing as Native Americans for Halloween. That, they said, was cultural appropriation. But none of them personally benefitted from such activities. Warren advanced her career by pretending to be a minority, an no one in media will talk about it.
That is the epitome of liberal privilege. In fact, noted “fact-checkers,” including PolitiFact, have defended Warren, insisting that “there is no proof Warren gained any special advantage in her career.”
Why would she bother noting her alleged status as a Native American if it had no bearing on her career? That question, unsurprisingly, remains unanswered.
