Elizabeth Warren, the Senator from Massachusetts many speculate to be a vice-presidential pick of Hillary Clinton, was just issued a major challenge – prove the Native American heritage claim you used to launch your career.
Former senator Scott Brown, who knows first hand about Warren’s fake minority status because the media helped cover up the lie, wants to see Warren take a DNA test to prove that she’s part Cherokee as she claims.
Warren claimed Native American ancestry when she entered biographical information into a job database for law professors in the 1980s. It helped launch her career.
Professor William Jacobson writes that the issue is one of “Warren’s key perception problem(s)” because she is perceived to have “dishonestly claimed Native American, and specifically Cherokee, heritage for professional purposes.”
Brown wants her to prove she’s not a liar, something which is actually a resume enhancer for Democrats.
Via the Washington Post:
As Donald Trump continues to call Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” for claiming Native American heritage, former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown — who lost to her in 2012 — is defending that line of attack.
“As you know, she’s not Native American,” Brown, an early Trump endorser, told reporters on a conference call organized by the Republican National Committee. “She’s not 1/32 Cherokee.”
In the 2012 race, Brown tried and, for a short time, succeeded in making a campaign issue out of Warren’s claim of Native American ancestry and whether it helped her win academic positions because of affirmative action. Brown allies in talk radio called her “Fauxcahontas,” and to this day, photoshopped images of Warren with a feather headdress follow her around the Internet.
“Harvard can release the records, she can authorize the release of those records, or she can take a DNA test,” he said, insisting that Warren took a job that might have rightly gone to a nonwhite applicant. “It’s a reverse form of racism, quite frankly.”
Aside from repeatedly calling Warren ‘Pocahontas,’ Trump agreed with Brown’s assessment that the Senator’s false Native American claims are a form of racism.
During a phone interview with NBC News, Trump said “She made up her heritage, which I think is racist.”
“I think she’s a racist, actually because what she did was very racist,” he said driving home the point.
