Warren on Her Native-American Ancestry Claim: ‘I Shouldn’t Have Done It, I’m Not a Person of Color’

Will the Massachusetts Democrat ever outrun this part of her story?

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) joined David Axelrod, former special adviser to Barack Obama, on his show “The Axe Files,” to discuss a range of topics over the weekend — including why she “checked” the Native-American box when that was such a very small part of her heritage, “one 32nd or something,” Axelrod said to her.

Many Americans do not care about Warren anymore, if they did ever.

Her continued pursuit of defending her American Indian ancestry claim for advancement and then lying about it turned off a lot of people.

She’s been attacking President Donald Trump nonstop to throw Americans off the scent of her deceit, but we are not stupid.

Warren claims she made the Native-American claims out of love for her family. How ridiculous is that?

Warren still claims that using the American Indian ancestry didn’t help her with any job she ever got.

How can she say that?

It helped her get into college.

“Based on what I learned growing up and the fact that I love my family, decades ago I sometimes identified as Native-American,” she said. “It never had anything to do with any job that I ever got.”

“The universities kind of fudged and used you for their own purposes,” Axelrod interjected.

Warren then backtracked.

“I shouldn’t have done it. I’m not a person of color,” she said. “I am not a citizen of a tribe, but what I try to do is be a good friend to Native-Americans.” (source: The Washington Times)

It’s this kind of politician doublespeak that has voters enraged at the swamp climate that has a secure position over our government.

Lawmakers can lie, cheat and steal all day long, but working for the American people — that’s not in their job description.

Look at what Democrats are doing by requesting a huge document probe on 81 Trump associates and campaign workers.

They would rather turn into judge, jury, and executioner rather than make Americans’ lives better.

The CNN host then pivoted by asking about her ridiculed DNA test, which indicated a possible Native-American ancestor six to 10 generations ago.

The 1/1024th Indian percentage is less than the average white person in America.

“I can’t go back,” the Democrat said. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.” (source: The Washington Times)

She and her buddies at Harvard say the minority status doesn’t do anything — but they were proud of indicating she was a minority in her bio.

If the question is meaningless or does nothing for the school or the individual, then why is it a federal offense to lie about an answer to that question?

She did this — claiming the status — for many years before getting any real proof and worse, she based it on a family story that was easily proved false.

She has to find a way to spend all the money she received by her semi-false Indian claims.

Warren and Bernie Sanders need to team up — and he can say he’s related to General Armstrong Custer.
