White woman speak with forked tongue.
A recently discovered video shows Elizabeth Warren telling another tall tale about her family. The day after she announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate, Democrat Elizabeth Warren told the convocation at the University of Massachusetts-Boston: “My grandmother drove a wagon in the land rush to settle territory out west. It was 1889, she was 15 years old…She lived to be 94, to see her youngest grandchild–that’s me–graduate from college…”. The only problem with this story is that it’s not true.
Warren’s maternal grandmother died in 1969, the year before Warren graduated from college, and her paternal grandmother was only 2 years old in 1889.
At this point, would it be the slightest bit surprising if the Massachusetts Senate candidate claimed something like this?
Little known fact, in 1989 Elizabeth Warren claimed her great-great-great-great-great-grandmother was Klingon.

Every word that leaves her mouth seems to be part of an ongoing Pinocchio powwow.
Will Warren's composite grandmother be a #warrendelegate??

Her late grandma might not be a delegate, but since Warren is a Dem, she probably gets to vote.
Warren's composite grandma is another example of narrative over fact. People love a good story until it's proven a lie. http://t.co/7qsoqvsZ
