Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz was deluged with mockery on Thursday after he posted a photo of a Native American statue to attack Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
In a tweet on Thursday, Chaffetz, a former U.S. House member from Utah, shared what appeared to be a selfie with a wooden statue of a Native American chief.
“At Disneyland today with Senator Elizabeth Warren,” the former congressman wrote.

The attempt at comedy quickly failed, making Chaffetz the butt of his own joke.
“This is why comedians have a liberal bias. You’re as funny as ted Cruz,” one person replied.
“Try being a little more racist next time around. Use the N word, maybe?” another Twitter user wrote sarcastically.
“Says the man who leaked a private letter and then resigned with zero consequences. By all mean, sir, let’s talk about your integrity,” one commenter said.
“Haha it’s funny because you’re super f*cking racist,” a tweet pointed out.

Going full racist a-hole. Enjoying retirement I see, let it all out. Your children must be proud of your “Christian” example. Do you teach them to mock and bully women/girls too? (Don’t answer, clearly you do)

Oh wait! You already did, loser.
P.S. Think the Democrats will uncover any of your asshattery when they take control of the House? I bet you spend a LOT of time thinking about that. https://t.co/5xG7khTkfE

Here we have an offensive caricature in this image. It shouldn’t be allowed to exist in public, but only in a museum where future generations can be reminded of the shame it represents.
Next to it is a replica of a dime store Indian.

So Racist! Call it what he is. Pathetic. Sad.

Pro-tip: if you’re gonna pretend to care about Native Americans for once, RACIST JOKES ARE NOT THE WAY TO DO IT.
And if you don’t care about those Americans, then you have literally no other intellectually honest reason to give a crap about Warren.
Shame on you, doucheface. pic.twitter.com/P7EsAiuI4I
