That's Not Funny: Hollywood Actor Forced To Apologize After Joke Scalping Warren's 2020 Bid Offended Some People

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is running for president. It’s official. She made the announcement over the weekend, putting the Democratic Party’s shamelessness on full display. This is a woman who culturally appropriated the Cherokee Nation for personal gain. We’ve all known that for quite some time. The latest evidence was the unearthing of her Texas bar application showing that she listed herself as American Indian. She is not. She’s 1/1024thNative American. She’s white. Period. She committed one of the Left’s cardinal sins and she’s being rewarded for it. I doubt this will put a dent her presidential ambitions, which is already half-scalped by the fact that the field is crowded, her approval numbers aren’t through the roof, and she has zero chance of connecting with voters who aren’t total left-wing whackos.

You have to poke some fun at this. A white woman pretended to be Native American and then thought she could coast through life without ever being challenged on it, especially when she decided that she was running for president. Actor Rob Lowe threw a tomahawk at this candidacy, tweeting “Elizabeth Warren would bring a whole new meaning to Commander in 'Chief’” on Twitter. The former West Wing actor then had to delete and apologize for the tweet because, you know, that’s offensive. It’s not the white woman culturally appropriating Native Americans that led to her presidential bid; it’s Rob Lowe rightfully mocking a person who peddled a racial hoax (via The Hill):

In a tweet Saturday afternoon, the 'West Wing' actor joked that the senator's candidacy would give new meaning to the title "Commander in Chief."

"Elizabeth Warren would bring a whole new meaning to Commander in 'Chief,'" Lowe wrote.

He later deleted the post, saying it was a "joke."

Trump also took a swipe at Warren with what some call a Trail of Tears reference:
