Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren was grilled over her false claims that she is part Native American Friday, saying she made a mistake but cannot go back.

In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Warren was pressed about her claims that she was Native American. The radio host, Charlamagne, asked Warren where she originally heard that she was Native American, to which she said:

“I learned about my family the same way most people they learn about their family, from my mama, my daddy, my aunts and my uncles, and it’s what I believed. But, I’m not a person of color, I’m not a citizen of a tribe and I shouldn’t have done it.

Charlamagne followed up by asking Warren if she had a chance to do it over, if she would take it back. Warren responded by saying, “I can’t go back, but I should.”


Later, Charlamagne asked her about being a registered Republican in the 1990’s, saying she “had a lot of confusion back in the day.”


“If I read correctly, you were a Republican up until the mid-90s? I think until 96?” Charlamagne asked Warren.

“Something like that. Nah. I just wasn’t politically active,” Warren responded.

“So you weren’t a Republican?,” Charlamagne asked. (RELATED: Elizabeth Warren Has Been Caught Calling Herself ‘American Indian’ Again)

“No, I was registered, but I wasn’t politically active,” she said.

“You had a lot of confusion back in the day, Ms. Warren. You thought you were Native American. You thought you were a Republican. When did you get on the right track?” Charlamagne asked.
