Senator Elizabeth Warren can’t comprehend why the American people would elect someone who lies to them, despite her own rocky relationship with the truth.

CBS News reporter Zak Hudak posed the question to Warren in a video posted to Twitter on Sunday: “Is it disqualifying for a presidential candidate to lie to the American public about anything?”

Warren took a moment to ponder the question.

“Uh, I, I would think that it … you know, how could the American people want someone who lies to them?” she questioned.

The socialist senator from Massachusetts then offered political platitudes.

“Um, I think that we just do our best out there every day,” Warren said, “and I hope that’s what happens with everyone.”

Warren is best known for falsely claiming Native American heritage for decades to advance her career as a woman of color, going as far as publicizing DNA test results last year that showed she’s no more Native American than most white people.

She’s also drawn repeated criticism on the campaign trail for other fibs, from debunked claims she was fired from a teaching job for being pregnant to the odd denial that her children attended private schools.

The hypocrisy, of course, wasn’t lost on folks online, who did not take kindly to Warren’s remarks.

“Elizabeth Warren lied about being indigenous for 69 years,” cursed-dem wine cave posted to Twitter. “Can we not do this?”

“This is where you and other members of the press gaggle asked about why she pretended to be an American Indian for 25 years, or why she removed and vanished her DNA results which she said confirmed that, right?” Stephen Miller added.

“Or why she lied about being fired for her pregnancy or about her son being in public school,” Michael_1111 wrote.

“Or about why she said her father was a janitor,” #O’sCHICK posted.

Others pointed to allegations Warren plagiarized recipes from The New York Times and passed them off as her own Native American recipes passed down through her Cherokee ancestors.

“Hilarious considering the lies, embellishments, prevarication and plagiarism in her background,” Cheryl, #WomenForBernie wrote. “She tried to pass off recipes copied almost verbatim from the New York Times as her own ‘Pow Wow Chow’ family recipes.”

“It’d be hard to find a time when she told the truth,” Mark Noonan added.
