"I've written before about the disproportionate unfairness of decrying Warren's dodge on this matter, given Trump's blatant lies on so much more", she wrote. Warren and the National Congress of American Indians consider it a racial slur when used as shorthand for Native Americans. "My brothers and I, we grew up in Oklahoma, we know our story from our mom and our dad, and our grandmothers and our grandfather, and from our aunts".
Roberts said a local paper in western MA that previously endorsed her Senate run urged her to "take the spit test" as a way to silence critics, including the president.
"This is a group that is being injured every single day", Warren said.
