'Victimhood Is a Dead End': Ingraham Blasts Warren, Says Dems' Midterm Strategy Won't Work
In her "Angle" commentary Monday, Laura Ingraham slammed Sen. Elizabeth Warren for "shamelessly peddling" the narrative that she is a Native American.
Warren’s long-standing assertion of Native American heritage was called into question Monday after the results of her DNA test were made public.
Warren published the DNA results as a rebuttal to President Donald Trump, who has long mocked her ancestral claims by referring to her as “Pocahontas.” While the results indicated the Massachusetts senator may indeed have some Native American heritage – anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1,024 – Ingraham was not impressed.
She pointed to a 2014 study by Harvard University and 23andMe that found that European Americans tested overall for 0.18 percent Native American ancestry, while Warren’s results show she may have as little as 0.09 percent.
"Warren is kind of a typical Democrat here. She's racially obsessed," Ingraham said. "And worse, she's willing to scam the system. In this case, play an Indian to get a boost professionally or, in this case, politically."
She said this is another instance of Democrats attempting to use victimhood for political gain, and it's not a winning strategy heading into November's midterm elections.
"It won't work. And it hasn't," Ingraham said.
She said that Republicans, on the other hand, are selling the agenda of peace, prosperity and security that President Trump won on in 2016 and is delivering on now that he's in office.
"In the end, I think most Americans are just smart enough to see that victimhood is a dead end, personally and politically."
