UPDATE: Elizabeth Warren Identifies Origin of ‘Native American Ancestry’ Myth
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is blaming her family from Oklahoma for fibbing to her about her supposed native american heritage.
After decades of evading any responsibility for her dubious claims to native American ancestry and years of lying about that heritage to the American public, Sen. Warren — or Pocahontas, as President Trump refers to her — has decided to throw her relatives under the bus. Her family, she says, are to blame for perpetuating the myth, which she then perpetuated.
During a CNN town hall on Monday, Warren received that familiar query from an attendee that questioned her judgment and temperament from how she handled the entire situation.
“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 an individual in the audience.
“Well, ya know, I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family from my family,” Pocahontas responded. “And, um, based on that, that’s just kind of who I am, and I do the best I can with it.”
Despite using her Indian heritage as an affirmative-action benefit throughout her career, Warren – who likely plagiarized recipes for her 1984 Indian-themed cookbook “Pow Wow Chow” – still has the audacity to claim that her Indian lies never “played any role in any job I ever got” while claiming that some nebulous “investigation” has cleared her record.
As soon as she could, Pocahontas darted back to her usual class warfare diatribe. Because she will secure the most wampum and firewater for her constituents, Warren believes she deserves to be the next President.
“I have now done thirty-eight town halls in Massachusetts, last year. And this is my thirty-second 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,” she said.
The Cherokee Nation is not buying Warren’s attempts at damage control. They understand that she misappropriated their heritage for personal gain and will not allow her to skirt from the shame she has rightfully earned.
“Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said in a press release. “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,” Hoskin added. “Sen. Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
Pocahontas can run but she cannot hide from the fall-out from her decades of deception. All the war paint in the world cannot protect her from the consequences of her own actions!
