The reference to Massachusetts Democrat Warren follows the release of Warren's DNA test. The results “strongly support” Warren having a Native American ancestor, according to a top researcher hired by Warren’s office.

Trump has frequently referred to Warren as “Pocahontas."

Warren's decision to release the DNA results was mocked by Trump and some conservatives. The Cherokee Nation also said using a DNA test to claim connection with a tribal nation is “inappropriate” and “wrong.”

Chaffetz in turn was slammed on Twitter for the photo mocking Warren by some members of the media, entertainment industry and educational institutions.
