Remember when President Donald Trump got himself into some trouble for calling Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas”?
“That’s very offensive!” one journalist could be heard interjecting, to which Trump sarcastically apologized before calling her “Pocahontas” a few more times.
It’s a bit amusing that liberals would be more offended at Trump calling Warren “Pocahontas” than the reason he’s calling her that. Remember: Warren lied about being Native American when applying for a job at Harvard Law School. Considering that she was only one of two Ivy League law professors in the nation to not posses a law degree from an Ivy League school, it’s extremely likely that affirmative action came to her aid.
Harvard celebrated Warren as the first minority women to be granted tenure at their university.
But that’s not what bothers liberals – it’s Trump pointing out that she did that?
Well, he’s not the only one drawing attention to it. As you’d imagine, actual Native Americans don’t appreciate Warren being the Rachel Dolezal of their race. According to Fox News,
A Cherokee woman joined Jesse Watters to criticize Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for refusing to back down on her claim of Cherokee ancestry.
Watters said Warren was recognized by Harvard University as their first minority female faculty member after the 68-year-old applied to the job as a Native American.
“As a mixed Native woman, I get to relive the stereotypes that Warren perpetuates every day,” Rebecca Nagle of Oklahoma told Watters.
“I’m not ‘part-Cherokee’, I am Cherokee,” she said. “[We’re] bit fractions of imagined Indians that used to exist. [Warren should] take responsibility for her false claim.”
Hilariously, Warren’s senatorial election opponent, Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai (I-Mass.), who is an immigrant from India, has played off her claims, calling himself the “real” Indian in the race. He sent her a 23andMe DNA test as a gift, which she refused.

We can only wonder why.
