Viral Tucker: Elizabeth Warren 'Appointed Herself the Head of the #MeSioux Movement'
Tucker Carlson said Monday that with Sen. Elizabeth Warren's release of a political ad highlighting her small percentage of Native American heritage showed that "Fauxcahontas is on the warpath."
Carlson said that her announcement that she has between 1/64 and 1/1,024 Native American blood is another testament to how the left believes that "victimhood is power."
Carlson said that Warren (D-Mass.) is not enrolled in a tribe and that the Cherokee Nation blasted her DNA test as effectively a stunt.
If anyone has mocked Native Americans, it's Warren. She stole their identity & leveraged their suffering to climb the greasy pole of our fake meritocracy. Actual Indians are disgusted. The Cherokee Nation released a statement today calling Warren's claims "inappropriate & wrong".

"Count on her to keep pretending she's the spokeswoman for indigenous people everywhere. Warren has appointed herself the head of the #MeSioux movement," he said, playing a clip of Warren speaking at length about her test.
Carlson said Warren is "leveraging" the suffering that Native Americans have felt over the years as a way to "climb the greasy pole of our fake meritocracy."
He said that Warren is one of many in the "ruling class" that believes in a "racial spoils system" wherein people's "immutable characteristics" like race trump everything else about that person.
"That is the very definition of racism," he said.
