Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a lying liar McLiarson.
And she keeps lying.
And it keeps catching up to her.
And it’s hilarious.
It probably shouldn’t be hilarious to see a grown woman and U.S. senator tell fib after fib after absurd fib, but I just can’t stop laughing when I hear her trying to explain away her rhetorical concoctions.
I’ll try to stop laughing long enough to write this.
The 2020 Democrat presidential candidate appeared for an interview Friday on a radio show called “The Breakfast Club,” where she was questioned by host “Charlamagne Tha God.” (Yes. That’s his name.)
“The Native American thing — do you regret taking the DNA test,” he asked her.
This earned her plenty of criticism from some Native leaders, who pointed out that she was barely, if at all, Native American.
So the correct answer to Charlamagne’s question would have been, “Heck yeah. It was super stupid and made me look stupid and made all my staff look stupid and insulted every Native American in the entire country.”
However, her answer took a different turn.
“I can’t go back,” Warren said.
When Warren was pushed on why she would claim she was Native American when she really wasn’t, she turned up the meter to maximum fabrication.
She attempted to explain her lie about her race by blaming it on her “Momma and my Daddy, and my aunts and my uncles.”
Warren tried to garner sympathy by recounting the tale as if she only advanced her race deception when she was a young fledgling covered in Elmer’s glue and glitter, completely helpless to potty on her own, much less find the truth for herself about her heritage.
But, dear reader, that is a four-Pinocchio lie.
Fauxcahontas was caught telling that fib after she graduated law school.
Did you read that?
After she went to law school — after she had presumably learned to investigate facts and not to assert things she can’t prove — she still hailed as a proud Native American.
The image in the link below shows how Warren, post-law school, still referred to herself as a Native American.
Elizabeth Warren: the “original Rachel Dolezal” https://t.co/bb4xV0ptCE

I’m not sure how they teach Evidence 101 at the law schools where Warren was a professor for several decades, but I would venture to guess that “Momma and Daddy” aren’t accepted legal authorities.
Charlamagne wasn’t going to let Warren off the hook for continuing to claim Native American ancestry well into her adult and professional life.
“Why’d you do that?” he asked.
Warren doubled down: “It’s what I believed. It’s what I learned from my family.”
After being asked when she found out that she was not Native American, Warren simply went back to her talking point that she doesn’t have an official association with a Native American tribe.
However, it’s the closing moment that takes the cake.
After hearing Warren’s less-than-believable story, Charlamagne opined, “You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal, a little bit.”
“Rachel Dolezal,” he explained, was “the white woman pretending to be black.”
Now, I will reconvene the laughing.
