Democrat Elizabeth Warren insisted the majority of voters don’t care about the controversy over her Native American heritage claims and blamed the Boston Herald for pushing its own political agenda during a cable network interview this morning.
“You know, the Boston Herald is the Boston Herald,” Warren said, shaking her head, after host Joe Scarborough asked if she felt the paper was unfairly targeting her. “What can I say?”
Asked what she meant by that, Warren replied: “I don’t think I can explain it because it has its own point of view, and it’s going to drive its own point of view.”
The Herald broke the story about Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry, which has captured headlines across the country and dogged Warren on the campaign trail over the last month.
“Actually, I think most people were never really very interested in it,” Warren said on MSNBC. “This is how I grew up, Joe. I’m not backing off from my family. It became clear I didn’t get anything for law school applications or for college or for any of the jobs I was hired for.
