AWKWARD: Radio Host Compares Elizabeth Warren To Rachel Dolezal On The Air (VIDEO)

Do you remember Rachel Dolezal? She was the white woman who pretended to be black and even ended up in a leadership position at the NAACP until her secret was exposed.

Elizabeth Warren was just compared to her, by a radio host, in person, on the air. Oof.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Radio Host to Warren: You Sound Like the Original Rachel Dolezal

In an interview on The Breakfast Club, Warren explained she learned from family lore that she was part Native American growing up, but a skeptical Charlamagne Tha God asked when she found out she wasn’t Native American.

“Well, I’m not a person of color. I’m not a citizen of a tribe, and tribal citizenship is an important distinction and not something I am,” Warren replied.

She pointed to a Boston Globe investigation showing she didn’t benefit professionally from her dubious racial claims.

“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal, a little bit,” Charlamagne Tha God said. “Rachel Dolezal was a white woman pretending to be black.”

“Well, this is what I learned from my family,” Warren said, before the subject changed.
