SHOCK: Liberals Turn On Elizabeth Warren

The liberal media continues to eat its own.

Next up? Sen. Elizabeth Warren – who is finally under fire from the left for falsely claiming she was a Native American to get a job as a law professor at Harvard University back in the 1990s.

President Trump reignited the controversy by calling Warren "Pocahontas" at an event for World War II Navajo Code Talkers – but factions in the liberal media, shockingly, seem to have taken his side (RELATED: Hey MSM, Remember When Senator Warren LIED About Being Cherokee).

US News and World Report published an article, debating Warren's "Pocahontas pickle," suggesting that Trump could successfully use her fake heritage claims "to paint Warren as an inauthentic phony" if she tries to run against him in 2020.

But even harsher words came from the host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah.

Noah, who is biracial, referenced Trump's nickname, stating, "When [Trump] says 'Pocahontas,' you might be thinking, 'Trevor, I'm confused. Is Elizabeth Warren Native American?' And you see, that's the question. Because for a long time, she said she was."

Noah played clips of the blonde-hair, blue-eyed  Massachusetts senator claiming – without evidence – that she was of Cherokee descent and discussing how Harvard mainly hired her because their faculty was under scrutiny for being predominately white and too male.

"Wow," Noah said. "How white is your college that when you get called out for being too white, your response is, 'Nuh-uh, we've got her!'"

Noah also discussed Warren's recipe contributions to a 1984 Native American cookbook called "Pow Wow Chow." Warren, in the past, had pointed to her recipes as evidence that she had Cherokee ancestors, but reputable sources have also accused her of plagiarizing those recipes from French chef Pierre Franey.

"I mean, that would be like finding out I'm completely white, I have no African blood, and yet I wrote the book 'Snacks For Blacks,'" joked Noah.

Noah concluded: "Elizabeth Warren did something problematic, the kind of thing we rightfully call each other out for every single day."

He also, albeit tepidly, acknowledged Trump for drawing attention to it, adding, "So as weird as it is to say, in his own racially offensive way, Donald Trump was being woke. Yeah, and that's, unfortunately, the truth."

Warren has not confirmed or denied her alleged "heritage" since Trump's comments, but she has slammed him for using Pocahontas as a "racial slur."
