Radio Host Keeps Knocking Warren Over Her Ancestry Debacle: ‘I Definitely Don’t Buy Her’ Excuse

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.'”

Watch the video below:

As for the 2020 presidential race and the hefty list of Democratic candidates, Warren currently sits in third, 11.8 points, in the polls, 4.7 points behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and 4 points ahead of South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Liz leveraged a massive exxageration about her heritage (q.v. the Texas State Bar application, her academic positions, etc.) She may have a smidgen of DNA, but zero tribal affiliation OR, most importantly, identification with any tribe.

More telling is her zero legislative efforts on behalf of “her people” (until she was recently shamed). This is almost the textbook definition of exploitation and “gaming the system”.

Worse yet, her platform is full-blown socialist. (how ivory-tower academic of her).


I LOVE watching Liz squirm and cannot wait for her dubious claims to be brought up in the primary debates. Good.

She was hired by Harvard and listed in their dishonest public ads as a Native American….her salary was an outrageous $350,000 a year. She took a position away from an actual Native American but denies being rewarded for lying…. she is not a nice person….

Her reaction IS the story. First of all, claiming to be a Native American when she knew that was a lie is a mistake indicating a lack of good judgment. Doing so repeatedly for decades into your adult life in situations where doing so can lead to benefits she did not deserve indicates someone of poor character. Then when found out, instead of admitting to what was obvious, Warren denied the lie for YEARS, making one lie after another that fell apart. Even now she continues to lie about this and attempt to minimize what she has done. Much like… Read more »


She had a DNA test that showed she had a small amount of Native American ( 2%). Her relative probably told her about this when she was little and if course she believed them. The Native Americans won’t accept her because you need to be at least 25-50% to be considered one of them.

She’s a liar and shouldn’t be elected dog catcher much less Congress and, God-forbid, the presidency.
