Elizabeth Warren attends Native American luncheon

With all the backlash Warren has received lately over her false claims of Native American heritage, you would think she would avoid the topic like the plague.

Warren has quit claiming to be a Native American, but she still attended the National Indian Women Honor Luncheon in Washington, D.C. this week.

Ignoring Controversy

Not long ago, she took a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage.

After word of the test got out to the media, she was absolutely blasted by Native American leadership. They were offended because, in their eyes, no test can prove affiliation with a particular tribe.

To add insult to injury, when the test did come back, the possibility of Warren having any Native American blood coursing through her veins was minuscule.

Additionally, another story recently broke about Warren claiming to be Native American in a bar application.

While she says she never received any special treatment based on that claim, a case could easily be made both she and her employers benefitted from her status as a minority.

Presidential Problems

While many thought the controversy would be enough to keep Warren out of the presidential race, that is obviously not the case.

Warren has announced her campaign and is not backing down from Trump’s taunts.

Still, this is going to present a problem for her on the campaign trail. This is especially true because her main competitors for the Democratic nod are going to be minorities.

While the jury is still out on how effective Cory Booker’s campaign will be, the current consensus among pundits is that Kamala Harris is going to be in this for the long haul.

At some point, her fellow Democrats will not have any choice but to throw this back in her face. When that happens, and it will, Warren will fall from grace among the key minority voters in the Democrat party.
