The looney left and their pals in the mainstream media just slammed one of their favorite liberal icons… on accident.
CNN delivered a stunning rebuke right in the face of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic leader.
And they didn’t even realize it.
They’re celebrating the election of Sharice Davids of New Mexico and Deb Haaland of Kansas, two Democratic women who won seats in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.
Both of them are Native American: Davids is from the Ho-Chunk Nation, while Haaland is a member of the Pueblo of Laguna.
And both are being hailed as the first Native American women elected to Congress.
Politics aside, that is an achievement for the history books.

But if they’re the first… what does that make Warren?
It makes her not a Native American, despite her constant claims to the contrary. It makes her a liar.
Warren, of course, has claimed Native American ancestry for years without evidence.
In the 1990s, when she was a professor at Harvard Law School, the university even touted her as an example of diversity because of her supposed heritage.
“Although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said professor of law Elizabeth Warren is Native American,” an article in the Harvard Crimson on diversity noted at the time.
The constant-but-unverified claims earned Warren the derisive nickname “Pocahontas” from President Donald Trump.
But rather than admit she was wrong… or at least stop talking about it… Warren did just the opposite.
She doubled-down by releasing the results of a DNA test that reveal she’s about as much Native American as anyone else, and possibly less.
That is to say, not very much at all.
The expert analysis of her DNA found evidence of a Native American ancestor going back between six and ten generations, possibly as far back as 1700.
The tests show she is as much as 1.5 percent Native American, but as little as only 0.09 percent.
A 2014 study found the average American is 0.18 percent Native American.
That means Warren might actually be less Native American than most other white Americans!
Yet leftists almost sprained themselves with the self-congratulatory back-patting, claiming this absurdly small amount of Native American ancestry from potentially hundreds of years ago somehow vindicated her.
Not everyone was fooled.

Many real Native Americans were angered by this ugly attempt at appropriation.
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said in a news release.
“It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
Now, American voters have finally sent two genuine Native Americans to Congress. If more win next time around, they may even be able to form a caucus.
Warren no doubt would want to join… but odds are, she’d be left on the outside looking in!
