Shiva Ayyadurai went on Fox Business’ Varney & Co Wednesday to talk about his campaign to replace Senator Elizabeth Warren in 2018, and he is sure confident about it.
Ayyadurai repeatedly bashed Warren, calling her a “self-serving elitist,” “un-American,” and a fake fighter.” But when it comes to how confident he is about beating her, it was his statement about his ethnicity that stole the show.
“I think only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian,” Ayyadurai said. “I sent her a DNA test kit for her birthday and I was very sad she returned it. That’s the issue of a real Indian and a fake Indian, the truth, because there is a woman who actually checked off the box that she is Native American.”
Warren claimed back in 2012 that she was Native American according to “family stories.” A genealogist traced her heritage and claimed she is 1/32 Native American, but it is still still debated and joked about. President Trump has even made numerous comments to Warren, calling her “Pocahontas.”
Ayyadurai was born in India but came to America when he was 7. When he was 14, he claimed he invented the concept of email, and went on to be a scientist, inventor and entrepreneur, as well as having four degrees from MIT. In March he filed as a candidate for the Massachusetts Senate race.
“I’m looking forward do going against Warren, I know how these elites work. I know I can defeat her,” Ayyadurai said. ”
Ayyadurai is also a big supporter of President Donald Trump, and confirmed that in his interview.
“I love Donald Trump. I think he’s done a great job. He’s my hero,” he said.
