Scott Brown Would Prefer His Staff Not Do Native American Impressions
Video of Scott Brown supporters and staffers taunting Elizabeth Warren supporters with a “tomahawk chop” and war whoop noises is making the internet rounds for some obvious reasons: Brown has hit Warren hard lately for claiming she’s a Native American, but it sort of undermines the campaign’s higher ground when his staff exhibits all the cultural nuance of Disney’s Peter Pan (which is to say, none at all.)
WCVB reports that several Brown staffers can be seen in the video. Brown has quickly expressed disapproval of the activity before turning attention back to Warren’s claims. “It is certainly something that I don’t condone,” he tells WCVB. “The real offense is that she said she was white and then checked the box saying she is Native American, and then she changed her profile in the law directory once she made her tenure.”
In other news, the video of the warring supporters looks like a pretty silly expenditure of time for both groups. And we were even thinking that before they got to the “Yankees Suck” chant. Ah, politics.
