"The Five" took on the implosion of Sen. Elizabeth Warren's claims of quantitative Native American ancestry. 

Warren (D-Mass.) released a campaign video featuring a genealogy expert explaining that she has an estimated one Native ancestor. The percentages that have been reported range from 1/64 to 1/1,032 Native American.

The move was widely viewed as a retort to President Trump regularly labeling her "Pocahontas" and casting doubt over her claims of Cherokee ancestry. Warren reportedly listed herself as a minority in a law school directory in 1990.

She also contributed a crab omelette recipe to a "Pow Wow Chow" Indian cookbook -- which Boston radio host Howard Carr claimed was all but ripped from a French chef in a fancy New York City restaurant.

"This makes Michael Dukakis and the tank look like 'tear down this wall'," Gutfeld said of the seriousness of Warren's claim.

Dukakis, then governor of Warren's Massachusetts, lost in a landslide to George H.W. Bush in 1988.

Dukakis had been viewed as weak on national defense issues, so he recorded himself wearing a combat helmet while riding an M1-Abrams tank.

Gutfeld added that President Trump does not owe Warren the $1 million she said he should donate to a Native American charity.

During one of his "Pocahontas" riffs at a Montana political rally over the summer, Trump pledged that sum to a charity of Warren's choice if she proved her ancestry.

However, Gutfeld said that Trump could score valuable public relations points by unilaterally donating to a Native American cause anyway, with no connection to Warren's demand.

Jesse Watters said Warren's claim is as ridiculous as if he claimed to be African-American and joined the National Association of Black Journalists. 

"She said she was a woman of color. I think the color is white. ... She's cooked as a candidate. It's over for her," he said, adding Warren and the media initially thought "she scored" a major point against Trump.
