WATCH: Tucker Carlson Refers to Elizabeth Warren as ‘Lie-Awatha’ in Segment Mocking Her Native American Ancestry Claim

Tucker Carlson tore into Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Monday night while throwing out a series of derogatory Native American-sounding names to ridicule her.

Broadcasting in front of a banner which read “Fauxcahontas,” Carlson went through the controversial history of Warren’s claim of Native American ancestry. The Fox News host called the Senator “O-lie-awatha” as he addressed Warren’s campaign-style video and the news that her DNA test results only put her somewhere between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.

“Who is mocking native Americans? If anybody is doing that, it is Elizabeth Warren,” Carlson said. “She is the one who stole their identity and leveraged their suffering to climb the greasy pole of our fake meritocracy. No high plains whiskey trader ever acted with more ruthless cynicism that she has. Actual Indians are disgusted by it.”

As Carlson brought up the Cherokee Nation’s rebuke of “Fake-agawea,” he went into his usual railings about how America should reject “the ruling class” and their supposed obsession with race and identity politics.

“Under that system, ‘Fraud-ezuma’ never would’ve bothered to make up a fake family tree,” Carlson said. “Harvard likely would’ve hired someone impressive in her place. Multiply that by every institution in America, and you’d have a better country.”
