Democrat Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren gave a speech to the Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa Monday morning. During her remarks, she said she's "made mistakes," but didn't go into detail about how she used her "Cherokee heritage" to get ahead in her career and academia.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren at Native American forum: "I know that I have made mistakes. I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened, and I have learned a lot."— ABC News (@ABC) August 19, 2019

Adding insult to injury, it appears team Warren deleted the campaign webpage hosting the video that boasted about the results of the candidate's DNA test. That test, which Warren was very proud of upon release earlier this year, showed she might be 1/1024th Native American.
Seems odd she would memoryhole the big roll out that she says put to rest the issue once and for all. Perhaps if we had an industry of dedicated professionals trained on asking such questions to these kinds of mysteries.— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) August 19, 2019
media and warren are trying to push two narratives simultaneously: Warren is apologizing.. for something.. she won't say what.. while her allies in media are claiming mocking the thing she is apologizing for is a racist attack against her.— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) August 19, 2019
So which is it?
Warren never apologized for repeatedly using her bogus minority status to get ahead. It wasn't a mistake, it was intentional. She was named Harvard Law's first woman of color. She wrote "American Indian" as her race on her Texas bar card.

Plus, where is the media outrage that Elizabeth Warren -- who is white -- allowed herself to be referred to as Harvard Law's "first woman of color"?— Elizabeth Harrington (@LizRNC) August 19, 2019
Only a Democrat could get away with this. Just ask Ralph Northamhttps://t.co/aep3sNI1jp
Naturally, members of the media are now accusing those questioning Warren's false Native American ancestry of racism.
Warren, who’s white, claimed w/o evidence to be Native American during a key stretch of her career, then dropped the designation once she’d reached the apex of her trajectory. The RNC is calling out her indefensible appropriation. This is not racism against real Native Americans. https://t.co/Y8p4hmoBlP— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) August 19, 2019
