JUST IN: Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s long history of lies about her race appears to have just come back to haunt her in a huge way.
Fox News reported that Warren spoke out on Sunday to officially rule out a run for president in 2020. She also announced that she will refuse to take a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry after President Donald Trump and numerous others accused her of lying about her heritage.
“I’m not running for president,” Warren said. Though she said she will refuse to take a DNA test, she added when asked about her alleged Native American heritage, “It’s a part of who I am, and no one’s ever going to take that away.”
Warren has been accused of claiming to be Native American just to get herself jobs, including one as a Harvard law professor. She has admitted that she has identified as a minority, but denied that she did this just to advance her career.
Trump has called Warren out for this repeatedly, going so far as to nickname her “Pocahontas.”
“Let me tell you a little bit about my family,” Warren said Sunday. “My mom and dad were born and raised out in Oklahoma, and my daddy was in his teens when he fell in love with my mother. She was a beautiful girl who played the piano. And he was head over heels in love with her and wanted to marry her. And his family was bitterly opposed to that because she was part Native American.”
“And eventually my parents eloped and they survived the Great Depression, they survived The Dust Bowl,” she continued. “They went through a lot of hard times. They raised three boys, my older brothers, all of whom went off to the military. They raised me. They knocked around and it was tough but they hung together. They hung together for 63 years. I know who I am because of what my mother and my father told me, what my grandmother and my grandfather told me, what all my aunts and uncles told me and my brothers.”
Rumors had been swirling for months that Warren was planning to run for president. Clearly, her long history of lying about her race is what sank her presidential dreams for good, as even she now knows that Trump would mop the floor with her in an election.
