Did House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi unintentionally admit that Sen. Elizabeth Warren is not actually Native American? It would certainly appear so.
During a speech Tuesday for Democratic congressional candidate Deb Haaland, Pelosi told the crowd that Haaland would be the first Native American to ever serve in Congress if she wins her election in New Mexico.
As noted by Breitbart, Pelosi did not outright say Warren does not have Indian heritage, but she did say Haaland winning her race would make her the first Native American to serve in Congress. Many would agree that Pelosi’s comments appear to imply Warren — a member of Congress — is not Native American.
“When [Deb Haaland] comes to Congress, think of it … she’ll come there as the first Native American woman ever in the history of our country. She will be the first and there’s a reason she is the first — because she is so great.”
Haaland also made the same comment when she spoke at the event:
“Hello Netroots Nation! My name is Deb Haaland. I’m the Democratic nominee for New Mexico’s first congressional district. If elected, I’ll be the first Native American woman In Congress. I’m a citizen of the Pueblo of Laguna and a 35th generation New-Mexican.”
The crowd erupted with cheers and applause, as they apparently don’t believe Warren’s story about her alleged heritage and high cheek bones.
“When [Deb Haaland] comes to Congress, think of it… she'll come there as the first Native American woman ever in the history of our country," Nancy Pelosi said.

More importantly, Warren has come under fire for claiming to have Cherokee Indian heritage. Her controversy began years ago when she claimed to be Native American when she was a law professor at Harvard University. It’s unclear why she made such a claim on her paperwork, but she has refused to provide any proof to support her contention.
Her reasoning has gotten so bad that she once claimed her “high cheekbones” proved she was Cherokee Indian.
Here’s a video of Warren making the controversial claim:
Last month, President Donald Trump said he would give $1 million to Warren’s favorite charity if she agrees to take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage.
“We will take that little kit — we have to do it gently because we’re in the Me Too generation, so we have to be very gentle. We will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn’t hit her and injure her arm, even though it only weighs probably 2 oz.”
“And we will say, ‘I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.'”
Just like Trump called Hillary Clinton “Crooked Hillary” to her face during the 2016 presidential debate, he will have no problem asking the fake Pocahontas to take a DNA test during a debate if she runs for president and secures the 2020 Democratic nomination.
And, hilariously enough, Pelosi appeared to unintentionally admit that Warren is not actually Native American in her speech for a woman is actually is an Indian.
