Warren accused of being loose with the truth reportedly by her own brother over claims dad’s a ‘janitor’

According to Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s own brother, his fake Native American sister is an exaggerator, if not an outright liar.

David Herring, one of Warren’s three older brothers, maintains that his sister hasn’t been honest about their now-deceased dad’s profession.

“According to a family friend, David has disagreed with the way Warren calls herself the daughter of a janitor as she describes the work he found after losing a job as a salesman after his heart attack,” The Boston Globe confirmed Thursday.

“When she called her dad a janitor during the early stages of this [presidential campaign], David was furious,” the family friend, Pamela Winblood, 78, said to the Globe. “He said, ‘My Dad was never a janitor.’ I said, ‘Well, he was a maintenance man.'”

True, but a maintenance man or custodian isn’t necessarily the same as a janitor. While a custodian’s job may entail janitorial work, most people view janitors as people who merely clean buildings and porters as handymen who clean and maintain properties.

There are whole articles going into details about the differences between these two professions:

Plus, the term janitor “has a more working-class ring to it,” as noted by Mediaite. Though, semantics aside, the argument could reasonably be made they’re the same thing. What’s odd is Warren herself used to refer to her father as a maintenance man, up until she started running for the highest office. Then she switched things up.

“My father held a series of jobs, his last one was mowing lawns and cleaning swimming pools for an apartment house,” she said while campaigning in an Aug. 2012 speech.

That sounded like a maintenance man.

In a campaign ad a year earlier, she even used the actual words “maintenance man.”


And during an interview in 2007, she reportedly said about her father, “[M]aintenance man in an apartment house was his last job.”

Now fast-forward to the present. During a campaign rally in Oklahoma City last weekend, she described her father as a janitor.

My daddy, he ended up as a janitor,” she proudly declared near the end of the event. “His baby daughter got the opportunity to be a public school teacher, the opportunity to be a college professor, the opportunity to be a United States senator and the opportunity to be a candidate for the president of the United States of America.”

Not to mention the opportunity to be a fake Native American and one day become recognized as the country’s most notorious, shameless liar. Well done …


Given her history of exaggerations and lies, one can’t help but wonder whether her abrupt change in terminology is rooted in politics.

In fact, the Globe notes that Warren “has referred to their father as a ‘maintenance man’ in her 2014 autobiography but often as a ‘janitor’ on the campaign trail.”

Moreover, former President Bill Clinton’s speechwriter David Kusnet remarked to the Globe that the senator’s habit of bringing up her family, including her brothers, is probably part of a strategy to endear her to working-class Americans.

“She wants to situate herself in the working class, not in the Ivy-League professional upper-middle class,” he said.

It’s probably the same reason why she blatantly lied last month by claiming that her own children attended public schools.

The Washington Free Beacon obtained a private-school yearbook that showed “Warren’s son, Alex Warren, attended the Kirby Hall School for at least the 1986-1987 school year. … The college preparatory school is known for its ‘academically advanced curriculum’ and offers small class sizes for students in grades K-12. The yearbook indicates that Alex Warren attended as a fifth grader.”

Now check out the video below of the senator lying to a school choice activist:

Liar, liar, thy name is Elizabeth Warren.

The 2020 contender lied again this month — albeit this time by omission — when she suggested she was unable to attend college because her family couldn’t afford it.

“By the time I graduated from high school, my folks couldn’t afford a college application, much less to send me off to four years in university,” she said in a campaign ad released on Twitter this Monday.


“But that’s not her story at all. She went to George Washington University on a scholarship,” Matt Margolis argues. “That actually makes a great story about how hard work and studying can open up opportunities, but that doesn’t exactly fit with left-wing orthodoxy, so instead she just skips over that detail in order to make it appear she missed out on college because she was poor, and so she wouldn’t have to bring up the fact that she dropped out after two years to get married.”

She reportedly pulled a similar stunt a month earlier:

“Here, in order to make a point about universal college education, she talks about how she eventually got her degree at the University of Houston, which had cheap tuition,” Margolis notes.

“Funny how her dropping out of college to get married wasn’t mentioned here, too. Or the fact that the University of Houston wasn’t the only public college with affordable tuition, which means that even if she hadn’t gotten the scholarship to George Washington University, that college was absolutely accessible to her when she graduated high school.”

The woman’s modus operandi seems to center on being utterly, unequivocally fake. Whether it’s pretending to be a Native American Indian, pretending she’s part of the working class or pretending her childhood was hell, she seems wholly incapable of just being herself.

Not that anyone is in a rush to hear her be herself:
