Sen. Elizabeth Warren faced her toughest line of questioning yet regarding her Native American ancestry from an unlikely place Friday morning: Hip Hop radio show ‘The Breakfast Club’ and host Charlamagne the God.
Watch @cthagod grill @ewarren on her heritage. "When did you find out that you weren't [Native American]?" "Were there any benefits to that?" "You sound like the original Rachel Dolezal a little bit" @breakfastclubam pic.twitter.com/GFzH8JqSqN

“I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family the same way that most people learned about their families; from mothers and fathers and aunts and uncles. But I’m not a Person of Color. I’m not a citizen of a tribe. I shouldn’t have done it,” said Warren.
“How long did you hold on to that. There are some reports that said you were a Native American on your Texas Bar license, that you were Native American on your documents when you were a professor at Harvard. Why’d you do that?” asked Charlamagne.
“It’s what I believed. It’s what I learned from my family,” deflected Warren.
“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal,” he fired-back, referring to the Caucasian woman who self-identified as an African American.
Warren’s latest campaign stop also included a visit to The View, where she promised a handful of “free” giveaways to all voters.
Senator Elizabeth Warren sat-down with co-hosts on The View Thursday; vowing to implement a 2% tax on wealthy Americans to provide free childcare, tuition-free college, student debt forgiveness, raises for workers, and more.

“My proposal is a 2% ‘Wealth Tax’ on the top 1/10 of 1%, your $50,000,001 dollar you have to pitch-in two cents and two cents for everyone after that. With that, we can cancel student loan debt for 95% of the people who have it, but we can do so much more,” said Warren.
“Two cents, we can also provide universal, tuition-free college plus we can do universal childcare for every baby age 0 to 5, universal pre-k for every 3 and 4-year-old, and raise the wages of every childcare worker,” she added.
Top economists say the price-tag for Warren’s proposals will likely top $100 trillion.
ANOTHER NEW DEAL? Warren Proposes Using US MILITARY to Combat Climate Change
Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren unveiled her latest proposal to combat climate change Monday; suggesting the use of the US military to confront global warming.
“In short, climate change is real, it is worsening by the day, and it is undermining our military readiness. And instead of meeting this threat head-on, Washington is ignoring it — and making it worse,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.
“We have the most capable military in the world. It’s also the single largest government consumer of energy, and it’s dependent on fossil fuels. The Pentagon spends about $4 billion a year to power its bases at fixed locations and consumes tens of billions of barrels of fuel per year,” she adds.
“Nibbling around the edges of the problem is no longer enough — the urgency of the moment demands more. That’s why today I am introducing my Defense Climate Resiliency and Readiness Act to harden the U.S. military against the threat posed by climate change, and to leverage its huge energy footprint as part of our climate solution,” concludes Warren.
Together, we can work with our military to fight climate change. https://t.co/fYixnw11bz

The far-left Senator’s comments come weeks after she unveiled a series of new government programs that economists say will cost US taxpayers trillions per year.
“If we put a 2% tax on the wealthiest families in the country, we can provide universal Pre-K, universal free college, knock back student loan debt for 95% of Americans—and still have a trillion dollars leftover,” claimed Warren on social media.

According to leading economists, the Senator’s proposal to forgive student loan debt and introduce tuition-free public colleges would cost over $1.25 trillion over the next decade.
BETO TANKS: Failing Democrat Beto O’Rourke BEGS for Fox News Town Hall
Failing presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke confirmed Monday that he’d “absolutely” do a Fox News town hall; directly rejecting Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s flat-out refusal to speak to the most-watched cable news network in America.
“Absolutely,” O’Rourke told supporters in eastern Iowa. “This campaign is about going to where people are, and you see that physically in where I show up. But it also has to be in those channels or those social media streams where people get their news and their information. That also includes Fox.”
“Very open to doing that,” he added, though stating his campaign was not currently in talks with the news network.
After the ratings were released on @PeteButtigieg's town hall on Fox News, it's the hottest ticket on the 2020 express.

Anti-Trump crusader Elizabeth Warren refused an invitation to speak before a Fox News town Hall last week; saying she’s “turning them down” despite hovering at just 8% in recent polls.
“I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s why,” posted Warren on social media.
“Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class,” she adds. “Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money—big ad money.”
