The Republican National Committee chairwoman faced swift backlash for calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) a liar for claiming Native American ancestry.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly slurred Warren as “Pocahontas” to mock claims about her background, and the Democratic presidential candidate apologized Monday to Native American tribal leaders for any harm she had caused by promoting DNA test results to prove native ancestry generations ago.
RNC chair Ronna McDaniel gleefully mocked the Democratic presidential candidate.
Elizabeth Warren by the numbers:
1/1024th Native American.

But she was quickly met with a round of social media mockery of her own.

It's hilarious to watch a defender of Trump call anybody a liar.

Ronna McDaniel by the numbers:

Elizabeth Warren can have 100 plans about the economy and ways to better our society, republicans will just bring up the whole Indian thing like children. Republicans are not serious about running this country. https://t.co/sZmiDOCPvK

At least Elizabeth Warren isn’t a racist.

This tweet is appalling. It’s a great example of why the GOP is set to lose in this year’s elections.
Hate doesn’t win in the end.

Trump lied about where his father was born. In addition to the other 12,000 documented lies during this presidency.

Trump by his number of lies: 12,000+
"Trump’s proclivity for spouting exaggerated numbers, unwarranted boasts & outright falsehoods has continued at a remarkable pace. As of Aug. 5, his 928th day in office, he had made 12,019 false or misleading claims" https://t.co/THkHHEZktU
