NBC News’ Megyn Kelly ridiculed Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday for her DNA test showing that she is less than two percent Native American.
Kelly rebuked the idea that the test proved that the Massachusetts Senator is Native American and chastised Warren for ever classifying herself as a minority. (RELATED: Boston Globe Correction Casts Doubt On Liz Warren’s Native American Claim)
NBC’s Morgan Radford argued that “acknowledging who you are isn’t using who you are.”
“It is when you are touted as the first Native American professor at Harvard Law School and you’re not Native American,” Kelly shot back, adding that it’s “not good enough” that Warren just thought she was Native American. (RELATED: Harvard Law School Once Touted Warren As Native American Prof)
“We ripped on a woman not long ago, a young high school girl wearing a prom dress that was kimono style, saying she was guilty of cultural appropriation,” Kelly said. “Elizabeth Warren is out there representing that she’s got a heritage that at best is probably similar to most Americans in this country, none of whom check the box.”
“She scored on herself. She scored a goal against herself,” Kelly concluded.
