Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is often referred to by President Donald Trump as “Pocahontas.”
That’s mainly because back in 2012, Warren got caught by then opponent Scott Brown.
She pretended to be Native American just to get ahead at Harvard Law School.
According to The Washington Post, Brown first raised the issue of Warren “having been identified as Native American at Harvard with the suggestion that Warren might have used her alleged identity to get ahead.”
The Boston Globe said Warren admitted that she had “listed herself as a minority in directories of law professors” when she was a professor at Harvard because she wanted to network with “people like me,” which the Globe said referred to “those with Native American roots.”
In a 1996 story in the Harvard Crimson student newspaper, a Harvard official stressed Warren’s heritage in response to questions about faculty diversity. “Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American,” a spokesperson for the law school told the newspaper. Trump has accused Warren of pretending to be Native American to “advance her career,” which he called “very racist.”
The Boston Globe said Warren denies that she was hired at Harvard because of her Indian ancestral claims, and the newspaper interviewed two dozen people “who recruited or worked with Warren who said her ethnic background played no role in her hiring.”
This is the woman screaming “racist” at Sen. Jeff Sessions.
What a disgrace!
