For years Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has claimed to be of Native American descent. But now even her own party, a real native American candidate and the liberal media appear to be calling out her lie and throwing her under the bus.
At the Netroots Nation gathering on Friday, Democratic congressional candidate Deb Haaland said that if she won she would be the first Native American woman in Congress.
“My name is Deb Haaland, I’m the Democratic nominee for New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District. If elected, I would be the first Native American woman in Congress,” Haaland said.
And she did it, speaking right before Warren was scheduled to speak. It’s not clear if she meant it as a dig at Warren.
Then House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi echoed Haaland when she came to New Mexico to give her her support.
“When [Deb Haaland] comes to Congress, think of it … she’ll come there as the first Native American woman ever in the history of our country,” Pelosi told attendees. “She will be the first and there’s a reason she is the first — because she is so great.”
And now, even CNN has rejected Warren while commenting on Congressional candidate Sharice Davids, who just won her primary.
Warren has never provided proof of her claim to Native American ancestry, saying simply that she’s relied on family lore and Harvard listed her as minority hire in the 1990s.
