Tucker: Elizabeth Warren Claiming Cherokee Heritage Is 'Identity Theft'
Tucker Carlson and a Cherokee genealogist discussed Sen. Elizabeth Warren's steadfast claims of being of Native American heritage.
Carlson reported that Warren (D-Mass.) recently said her parents were forced to elope because of others' untoward feelings about her mother's Native American heritage.
Genealogist Twila Barnes said Warren is not of Cherokee heritage and is "not enrolled" with the tribe.
"She has no family on the rolls, she has no indication of Indian ancestry anywhere in her lineage," Barnes said.
Carlson said Warren received preferential treatment in her pre-senatorial occupation on the basis of her claiming to be Native American.
Barnes said the reported manner in which her parents were wed does not match well with Warren's account.
She said Warren's parents, Pauline and Donald Herring, were married by a prominent Oklahoma minister who the genealogist said would not be one to tie the knot in an elopement.
"She has no proof of anything and she's a lawyer," Barnes said of Warren.
She said many in the tribe are angry that Warren appears to have "appropriated" their heritage for her own gain.
"It's identity theft," Carlson said.
