Elizabeth Warren recently did a campaign event in New Hampshire and had an awkward exchange with a voter.
The woman told Warren that she liked her but had “concerns” about her honesty due to the Native American thing.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
New Hampshire Voter Confronts Warren Over Ancestry
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) was confronted by a voter in New Hampshire over her claims of Native American heritage.
Participating in a “Conversation with the Candidate” forum with a New Hampshire ABC affiliate, the voter said that she was also incorrectly told she had Native American ancestry when she was younger. “Where we differ is that I’m the mom of three-year-old twins, and my three-year-old twins are black,” she said, “And so it’s given me a totally different perspective on the purpose of affirmative action.”
The voter then said she struggled with Warren’s decision to list herself as “American Indian” on her Texas State Bar registration card in 1986, which she said disrespected the reason for affirmative action, and asked Warren how she could reach voters who support her policies but don’t think she’s honest.
“Nothing about the way I identified had anything to do with my academic career, the Boston Globe did an extensive piece on that about a year ago,” Warren said, “Even so, I shouldn’t have done it, I am not a person of color, I am not a citizen of a tribe, and I’ve apologized for any confusion over tribal sovereignty, tribal citizenship, and any harm caused by that.”

Warren was also ridiculed this week for adding her preferred pronouns to her Twitter profile:

So in the next debate she can ask the other candidates why they hate trans people

She is so awful, she almost makes HRC look good.

She certainly is good at pandering.
