Jason Chaffetz Gets Pummeled Over Jab at Elizabeth Warren’s Heritage Claim: ‘Miserable Bastard’

Former congressman-turned-Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) decided to go full-troll on Thursday in the aftermath of the controversy over Senator Elizabeth Warren‘s (D-MA) heritage this week.

Chaffetz appears to be in Disneyland this week, seeing as he just posted this picture to his social media accounts.

As you can probably tell, Chaffetz is making a joke about the DNA test Warren released this week, which she’s calling proof of her recurring claim to have Native American ancestry. Critics have bashed Warren for years over the lack of evidence to her claim, and this week, the scrutiny was renewed over the fact that her test results show that her Native DNA percentage might actually be extremely remote.

Political observers are taking notice of Chaffetz’s mocking picture, and most of them are calling it either downright racist or a screw up of an issue where Warren’s critics might’ve had the upper hand:
