2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) controversial past continues to haunt her into the 2020 presidential race.
Warren appeared on “The Breakfast Club” radio show in late May — a popular stop for several Democratic candidates — where host Charlamagne Tha God pressed her on her past heritage claim of being Native American and her previous registration as a Republican.
During the radio show, Charlamagne Tha God knocked her as “kinda like the original Rachel Dolezal” — a woman born white but claimed to be black for years — with all of Warren’s “confusion back in the day.”
The radio host then slammed Warren on Tuesday as he said 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.'”
Charlamagne Tha God is once again taking a hit at Warren, as he told CNN on Thursday that Warren discusses “actual issues,” but he doesn’t buy her response to her ancestry claims.
“I definitely don’t buy her answer,” he said about Warren’s response when responding to the ancestry controversy.
He then added that if Warren did benefit from the ancestry claim at some point, “that wouldn’t make me look at her and be like ‘oh you’re just a terrible human being.'”
However, the radio host continued:
“People are going to keep asking her about it until she acknowledges it in a real way. Meaning, ‘Hey, I did it. I was wrong. This is why I did it. I thought I could get ahead. And, you know, I learned my lesson from it.'”
