Liberal Morning Show Rips Warren: ‘You’re Kind of Like the Original Rachel Dolezal’

“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal, a little bit. Rachel Dolezal, the white woman pretending to be black.”

Hosts of the radio show “The Breakfast Club” ripped into Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for her false ancestry claims during their Friday morning show.

Asked if she regrets taking the DNA test that proved she was not Native American, Warren begins by explaining that she grew up in Oklahoma and learned about her heritage from her parents and extended family.

After explaining that she is not a person of color nor a member of a Native American tribe, co-host Charlamagne tha God asked Warren, “If you had a chance to do it over, would you?”

Warren says she “can’t go back, but I should.” It’s at that point that Warren attempts to pivot the conversation to talking points about free college and helping historically black colleges and universities. But the co-hosts of “The Breakfast Club” steered the conversation right back to Warren’s ancestral claims.

“How long did you hold on to that because there were some reports that said you were Native American on your Texas bar license and that you said you were a Native American on some documents when you were a professor at Harvard.”

“Yeah,” Warren replies.

“Like, why’d you do that?” Charlamagne asked.

“So, it’s what I believed,” she replied. “You know, like I said, it’s what I learned from my family.”

“When did you find out weren’t?” he asked.

Warren opted not to answer that question, instead repeating, “I’m not a person of color. I’m not a citizen of a tribe, and tribal citizenship is an important distinction and not something I am.”

“Were there any benefits to that?” Charlamagne asked.

“No,” Warren said, adding that the Boston Globe investigated her claims and found it “never effected” her work.

“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal, a little bit,” Charlamagne added. When it was clear that name did not mean anything to Warren, he explained, “Rachel Dolezal, the white woman pretending to be black.”

“No, this is what I learned from my family,” Warren said in her defense.
