Senator Warren got a taste of her own medicine at a Donald Trump event in Bangor, Maine. New England conservative radio show host Howie Carr ripped into the Massachusetts senator for her recent remarks about Trump.
“You know Elizabeth Warren, right?” Carr asked the audience. He then put his hand over his mouth and began imitating Native American war whoops. “Elizabeth Warren said, or maybe it was Hillary, she said the only people for Donald Trump are rich guys. Are any of you guys out there rich guys? I don’t see too many rich guys out here today. Except me. Did I hear that? I didn’t come here to be made sport of,” Carr said.

Trump has repeatedly mocked Warren’s claims of her Native American heritage. When she was running for Senate against Scott Brown back in 2012, the issue of her heritage constantly haunted the campaign. In fact, in late September of the same year, some of Brown’s campaign staffers were caught on camera doing a tomahawk chop and imitating Indian noises.
Warren has been accused of lying about her alleged Native American heritage in order to secure her former job as a Harvard University professor. Brown has even called for Warren to take a DNA test to prove her ancestral background: “Harvard can release the records, she can authorize the release of those records, or she can take a DNA test.”
Warren told TV audiences Tuesday, “Donald Trump will say and do anything. So will Scott Brown. Unlike most people, my brothers and I learned who we are from our families,” she said.
Now that Warren has begun campaigning with Clinton, it appears the feud between her and Trump show no signs of quieting down.
