More from the Washington Free Beacon:
The moderator at a Native American forum was shocked on Monday after Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) received very little enthusiasm about her potential election.
“It’s a wonderful day and Native Americans across this country should celebrate. Today we’re sharing the stage with a future president perhaps,” the moderator said.
Here’s the cringey video (via the Washington Free Beacon):

That must have been awkward. Keep pushing the lie I guess?

If you thought that was bad, there’s still more where that came from.
Warren still says she’s a Native American (she’s not), but also hastens to add that she’s not a person of color. Are (actual) Native Americans NOT people of color?

At least some actual Native Americans are not amused by Warren’s shenanigans. Get a load of what one woman had to say about her performance:
Attendees at the Native American Forum aren't having it:
"How can she say she's not a [woman of color] when she just took a DNA test stating she is?"pic.twitter.com/tJxTOS15Bm

It’s almost as if they don’t accept her as one of their own.
