Fox News contributor and former GOP lawmaker Jason ChaffetzJason ChaffetzTop Utah paper knocks Chaffetz as he mulls run for governor: ‘His political career should be over’ Boehner working on memoir: report Former GOP lawmaker on death of 7-year-old migrant girl: Message should be ‘don't make this journey, it will kill you' MORE (R-Calif.) on Thursday posted a photo where he posed with a Native American statue, captioning it “At Disneyland today with Senator Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth Ann Warren2020 Dems seize on MLK Day for campaign messaging Kamala Harris staffer mocks O'Reilly for saying Harris 'lost' his vote for president Kamala Harris announces presidential campaign MORE.”


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.

Warren said she released the test to get ahead of attacks by President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump claims media 'smeared' students involved in encounter with Native American man Al Sharpton criticizes Trump’s ‘secret’ visit to MLK monument Gillibrand cites spirituality in 2020 fight against Trump’s ‘dark’ values MORE over her claims to Native American heritage. 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.
