Radio Host Dives Into Why Warren ‘Looked So Clueless’ When Confronted About Controversial Past

“The Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne tha God is speaking out about his interview with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

Warren appeared on the radio show in late May and was confronted about her controversial heritage in which she claimed to be Native American, including on her Texas State Bar registration.

As IJR Red earlier reported, Charlamagne asked about her reasoning behind it at the time.

“I’m not a person of color,” she responded. “I’m not a citizen of a tribe.”

Warren’s response sparked the radio host to label her as the “original Rachel Dolezal,” a white woman who pretended to be black for years.

The host also pressed Warren on her past registration as a Republican, which she responded that she “just wasn’t politically active, one way or the other,” as IJR Red also reported.

In case you missed the interview:

On Fox Business Network’s “Kennedy” on Tuesday evening, Charlamagne discussed his interaction with Warren.

“People acted like that comparison was so off,” he said when host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery asked him about his comparison of Warren to Dolezal. “But, I mean, if you were saying that you are a Native American and you got some type of benefit from that, and she said she didn’t, but how does she know she didn’t?

“I would just like to know, you know, why?” he continued in regard to Warren’s past claims of Native American ancestry, although a DNA result showed she is up to 1/1,024th Native American.

“I was like, ‘This is the end of her campaign.’ Because she looked so clueless,” Montgomery suggested. “She looked mentally deficient, and she looked like an unserious person who is not fit to be president.”

“But that’s what bothers you, right?” Charlamagne responded. “It’s like the fact that she has all these policies, but when you ask her something as simple as, ‘So why did you do that with the Native American thing,’ she’s like, ‘I don’t know.'”

Watch the interview below:


Fellow 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) also appeared on the “The Breakfast Club” in February when she admitted to smoking “a joint” in college — which “The View” ladies had pointed out a “weird lie” within her statement on the radio show, as IJR Red previously noted.

So I’m a little perplexed as to how this story has been framed. If Warren and Dolezal, who she’s being compared to here, “got some type of benefit” from claiming they’re minorities, doesn’t that fly in the face of the Democrat’s daily narrative regarding what a blatant racist nation we are? Why would anyone want to claim they’re a minority in the US? According to the depiction of this country by the Left, you’d just be subjecting yourself to unyielding hate. So how on earth would there be “benefits”? But yet, there seems to be some kind of rewards driving… Read more »


Charlamagne did a fine thing by pulling no punches when confronting Elizabitch. Her ‘true’ color was exposed.


Maybe Fauxcohantas was a pioneer in the whole “I wannabe” movement. q.v. the transgenders, transracials, those unwilling to work but still desiring an income.

I was a pioneer too, in joking for years that I identified as a spotted owl. I’m still waiting to be granted hundreds of acres of old-growth forest AND to have newpapers spread wherever I go so I can poop freely. Isn’t America great to indulge the liars and mentally ill?


Liawatha is done. Charlamagne [sic] got that part right. Her platform is pure socialist/commie hooey. The facts show she lied about and exploited an almost non-existent Native American heritage, which is so damn wrong.

Isn’t the whole Dim platform predicated on identity politics? Liz demonstrates it’s been going on for decades. Not being an American, just leveraging your status as a “victim”.
