Fox News host Greg Gutfeld attacked Senator Elizabeth Warren for continuing to claim she’s Native American despite the results of her DNA test, and that said by doing this she opens the door for anyone to claim they’re oppressed on “The Five” Monday afternoon.
Early Monday morning, Warren released a video in which she announced that she took a DNA test to prove she’s Native American. The Boston Globe originally claimed that the DNA test revealed Warren was somewhere between 1/32 and 1/512 Native American, however they then corrected their story saying the numbers are actually between 1/64 and 1/1,024.

“Her Native American ancestry may date back six to ten generations. She’s potentially 1/1,024 Indian which is 0.09%. Using such standards, I am Asian, which is why I can’t get into Harvard,” Gutfeld stated. “Did she or did not list herself as a minority in law school directories when it suited her, then removed it when he didn’t?”
“She is a white woman of vast European ancestry who went to the buffet of identity politics and took seconds, then thirds. Warren is Native American because she said so. She wins the 2018 Rachel Dolezal award,” he added. “So if we all do the same test as hers and find similar percentages, aren’t we also eligible to claim the experiences of an oppressed group and their past grievances too?”
“Her results now become the standard for anyone choosing the past that offers an edge, who can now skip ahead in admissions or jobs in places where diversity trumps experience and so DNA test become the new affirmative action,” Gutfeld continued. “But at whose expense? Maybe no one because if we are all a little oppressed, we are all good. Goodbye, identity politics. If everyone is a minority, then nobody is.”
