Shock Jock Mocks Warren With War Whoop As Trump Warm-Up (VIDEO)

Before Donald Trump took the stage Wednesday at a campaign rally in Maine, Boston talk radio host Howie Carr warmed up the crowd with a schoolyard caricature to mock Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) heritage.

“You know Elizabeth Warren, right?” Carr asked the crowd before pounding his hand over his mouth to make a faux-war whoop.

Carr also used the opportunity to call himself a “rich guy.”

The conservative shock jock was taking a cue from Trump, who has often referred to Warren, who recently began campaigning for Democrat Hillary Clinton, as “Pocahontas,” a nickname he uses to needle the senator about her Native American heritage.

Questions about Warren’s lineage figured prominently in her 2012 Senate race against Scott Brown. Brown, who is now a Trump surrogate, recently called for Warren to take a DNA test to prove she is indeed part Native American.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
