Elizabeth Warren is ramping up for a 2020 Presidential campaign.
So she tried to shore up her biggest weakness with one speech.
But it ended up blowing up in her face.
Warren has faced withering criticisms for lying for years about being a Native American Indian in order to advance her career.
Donald Trump labeled her with the nickname “Pocahontas.”
Warren has been struggling with this since a large segment of the left’s loony base is caught up in the concept of cultural appropriation.
They believe white people cannot take customs, clothing, or food from other cultures because it is stealing their identity.
Warren knows she is vulnerable on this front so delivered a speech in front of a Native American audience.
She blasted Trump for “disrespecting” Native Americans with the Pocahontas nickname he tagged her with.
Fox News reports:
“The Massachusetts Democrat used a surprise appearance Wednesday before a Native American audience to launch a fiery — albeit belated — counter-attack against President Trump for using that nickname as far back as the 2016 campaign.
In the D.C. address, Warren accused Trump of engaging in the “disrespect of Native people” by using the term — while doubling down on her past claims of American Indian ancestry that earned her the moniker in the first place.
“Now I’ve noticed that when my name comes up, President Trump likes to talk about Pocahontas,” Warren said in a speech to the National Congress of American Indians.
Speaking of Trump, the potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said: “Now we have a president who can’t make it through a ceremony honoring Native American war heroes without reducing Native history, Native culture, Native people to be the butt of a joke. The joke, I suppose, is supposed to be on me.”
If anyone is disrespecting Native Americans it is a white woman faking being Native American so she could jump ahead on the career ladder in front of individuals with legitimate Native American heritage.
