Republican radio talk show host Howie Carr, who spoke before presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump at his campaign rally on Wednesday in Maine, mocked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for claiming to be Native American.
“You know Elizabeth Warren, right? Woo woo woo,” Carr stated while making an Indian noise and waiving his hand on top of his mouth.
Carr’s jab at Warren comes after Trump referred to Warren as “the Indian” and “Pocahontas.”
“She made up her heritage, which I think is racist. I think she’s a racist, actually because what she did was very racist,” Trump stated about Warren in a previous interview. “She used the fact that she was Native American to advance her career. Elizabeth Warren is a total fraud.”
Warren reportedly identified herself as Native American while teaching at Harvard, but identified as “white” when she was at the University of Texas.
“The problem is that no one ever found evidence to support Warren’s claim that she is part Cherokee and Delaware,” New York Magazine notes.
