[Ed. – Wouldn’t Rachel Dolezal make the same argument?]
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in an interview broadcast Sunday said she knows who she is after being pressed about her claims of Native American heritage.
She was questioned during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” about an editorial in a Massachusetts newspaper, “Warren must resolve debate on heritage,” which said a DNA test would “permanently resolve the issue.”
“Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere,” Warren said.
“But what I did a couple of weeks ago is I went to talk to the leaders of the native tribes across the country,” she added.
“And I talked about the fact that President Trump can’t seem to hear my name without trying to throw a racial slur into it. Can’t seem to make it through a ceremony honoring Native American war heroes without trying to make something else out of it.”
