Former GOP congressman and current Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz lit Twitter on fire on Thursday after he posted a picture of himself in Disneyland.
In the photo, Chaffetz is standing next to a Native American statue, and wrote in the caption: “At Disneyland today with Senator Elizabeth Warren.”

His tweet has racked up over 10,000 comments and more than 18,000 “likes,” and it’s clear his tweet is going viral.
Many of the comments appeared to be Democrats criticizing Chaffetz for poking fun at Warren, who released the results of her DNA test on Monday.
However, her stunt backfired given the results showed that she has only the possibility of being 1/1024 Native American.
Other commenters laughed or verbally confronted people who attempted to get others to “report” the tweet to Twitter.
Warren has faced constant scrutiny over her alleged claims of being Native American. President Donald Trump and others dared her to take a DNA test, and when she did, the results backfired on her.
Some media outlets still ran her story stating that there was “strong evidence,” although her results yielded 1/1024, which is not “strong” by any means.
Warren being 1/1024 is statistically less Native American than the average European American.
As ILMF previously reported on the Warren DNA test:
“Warren, who provided the DNA results to The Boston Globe, claims the test shows that she has a trace of Native American in her family history, a claim that has been challenged by many for several years. However, the report shows that she had one “unadmixed Native American ancestor” dating back to around the 1700s.”
“She is only 1/1,024th American Indian, which is less than the average white person from North America. She might be .097 percent American Indian, and yet she is apparently standing by her claims.”
Warren has also requested that President Trump pay $1,000,000 to the charity of her choice based on what he said back in July.
Trump promised to pay $1,000,000 to the charity of her choice if Warren took a DNA test and it proved that she was an Indian.
She’s less than one percent Native American, but is now demanding the money.
