Elizabeth Warren Heckled During Campaign Speech: 'Why did You Lie?'
Democrat's past keeps on coming back to haunt her during her presidential bid
Sen. Elizabeth Warren was interrupted by a protester during her campaign event on Saturday, calling her out on her past false claims of Native American ancestry.
Warren began addressing the crowd in Gwinnett County, before a man shouted, "Why did you lie?"
"Hold on. We'll get to lots of policy, I promise. OK?" Warren said, adding, "Be easy. Be easy."
Warren, clearly disturbed, attempted to move away from the subject as the protester was escorted out of the Central Gwinnett High School gymnasium.
As the man left Warren told the audience "we're good" as the crowd cheered.
According to the Washington Free Beacon's David Rutz, the man was holding up a "1/2020th" sign.
Last week, Warren apologized for making false claims of Native American heritage and hinted there might be more evidence out there that could soon emerge.
She was once again forced to apologize on Wednesday for claiming Cherokee heritage on a 1986 registration card for the Texas state bar that has recently surfaced.
The anti-Trump Democrat also left the door open that there may be more documents out there with similar race claims.
Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed. She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American. Now Cherokee Nation denies her, “DNA test is useless.” Even they don’t want her. Phony!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2018
Warren offered yet another apology for previously identifying as a Native American to WSB-TV, saying, "I shouldn't have done it."
Last week we reported Warren falsely identified as an "American Indian" on a handwritten registration form for the Texas State Bar, the newly discovered document has revealed.
The Massachusetts Democratic 2020 hopeful indicated that her race was "American Indian" when she filled out the card that was filed in 1986 with the Texas State Bar, according to a new report.
The discovery of the form is the latest example that documents the Democrat senator's efforts to identify as a minority during her earlier years as a law professor.
Donald Trump blasted Warren for claiming to have Cherokee heritage, calling it a "fraud" against the public.
The president also mocked her newly released DNA test - that proves she has no more Native American ancestry than the average American - as "bogus."
