Twitter is still on fire tonight over President Trump calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts “Pocahontas” in regard to her self-proclaimed status as a Native American and these tweets from CNN’s Jake Tapper caught our eye.

Tapper quotes a friend of his who is Native American:

 

Now, when will journalists start digging into Warren’s past claims of Native American heritage and if it helped her career? For example, from CNN in 2012:

Did it play a role in her career?
Harvard Law School in the 1990s touted Warren, then a professor in Cambridge, as being “Native American.” They singled her out, Warren later acknowledged, because she had listed herself as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory. Critics note that she had not done that in her student applications and during her time as a teacher at the University of Texas.
Warren maintains she never furthered her career by using her heritage to gain advantage.

Politics ain’t beanbags and if Dems want to keep putting Warren out there to attack Trump, and maybe have her run in 2020, she needs to address her past.
