Remember Sharice Davids? She’s the lesbian former MMA fighter who won her Democratic primary in Kansas. She’s also a Native American. Media outlets were making quite a fuss over her yesterday, pointing out that if she wins her race this November, she’ll be the first Native American woman elected to Congress.
Naturally, some tweeters couldn’t resist joking about Elizabeth Warren being upset by those headlines, but behind every joke is an element of truth. And maybe there was something to their jokes after all:

Think Elizabeth Warren — or someone from her team — had a little pow-wow with CNN about the original headline?
Pocahontas calling CNN: “You better change that headline ASAP!”

We’d like to think that’s what happened. Mainly because it’d be friggin’ hilarious.
