Today is Columbus Day, and Elizabeth Warren probably should have avoided the topic entirely, but having zero self-awareness means you’re able to still tweet things like this:
The story of America’s mistreatment of indigenous peoples is long and painful. And yet, Native communities have proven resilient. We owe them our respect—and we must honor our government's commitments and promises to them. #IndigenousPeoplesDay

Who on the campaign was obtuse enough to think this was a good idea https://t.co/ZL01PvfP2E

Surely the least self aware person on Planet Earth https://t.co/9zmPoe5op9

Her lack of self-awareness is stunning, isn't it?

Just a little!
I know of one way to avoid disrespecting Native Americans https://t.co/SJ89tUgpch

Apparently Warren doesn’t.
I heard some people even culturally appropriate Native American identity in order to get cushy gigs at Harvard Law School, as shocking as that sounds!

Remember that time you spent years exploiting indigenous peoples by pretending to be one. https://t.co/adZ1W69Rgs

So much respect that we even lie to pretend we're one of them for personal gain. https://t.co/DScVrg0Hei

This would be a lot more genuine if it wasn't coming from someone that PRETENDED TO BE A NATIVE AMERICAN. https://t.co/o2Jj366opO

There are many Dems clamoring to be noticed in the 2020 field, but Warren’s certainly one of the most shameless so far.
