Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on previous comments she made regarding her Native American heritage on Wednesday; telling a conference of national leaders that, “our country’s disrespect of Native people didn’t start with President Trump.”
The hyper-liberal lawmaker was addressing the National Congress of American Indians this week when she went into greater detail about her alleged ancestry; a claim commonly mocked by President Trump and others.
“I never used my family tree to get a break or get ahead. I never used it to advance my career,” said Warren.
“My mother’s family was part Native American. And my daddy’s parents were bitterly opposed to their relationship. So, in 1932, when Mother was 19 and Daddy had just turned 20, they eloped,” she added.
“And no one — not even the president of the United States — will ever take that part of me away,” she planned to say according to her pre-written statement, but omitted from the address.
Sen. Warren is jokingly referred to as ‘Pocahontas’ by President Trump following reports she exploited her unsubstantiated heritage to advance her academic career at Harvard Law School.
