Warren Challenger Slams Native American Claims, Pledges to Take on Establishment

Speaking with NTK Network at CPAC on Friday, Shiva Ayyadurai, an independent challenger to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), said that the liberal senator’s claims of Native American ancestry are “bullshit.”

Asked about Warren’s recent speech to Native American tribal groups, Ayyadurai slammed her speech. “That’s bullshit,” he said. “I actually sent her a DNA test kit, and she returned it.”

Last June, the senate hopeful ordered a 23&Me DNA test for Warren, but she refused its delivery:

Ayyadurai predicts that the Native American issue could eventually sink Warren. He said Trump “hammering” Warren’s “fake Indian thing” – a reference to Trump calling Warren “Pocahontas” – would hurt the senator in the long run.

As for his own campaign, Ayyadurai said he is running to help Massachusetts voters “declare their independence from” the establishment, criticizing both the Republican and Democratic parties. The candidate objected to popular Governor Charlie Baker’s (R-MA) refusal to support President Trump and described himself as a conservative.

The 35-year resident of Massachusetts is optimistic about his campaign’s chances, citing coverage in The Boston Globe and The Wall Street Journal.
