Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren has been caught bending the truth once again about her past – and this time she’s being called out by her own brother.
Warren has reportedly been fibbing about her father’s line of work on the campaign trail.
As a Senate candidate in 2012, the Democrat ran a political ad that began with a woman boasting, “Her father was a janitor; my father was a janitor,” followed by a man who announced, “She’s one of us!”
In a 2018 debate, responding specifically to a question about fabricating Native American heritage, Warren said, “I am the daughter of someone who ended up as a janitor and I got to be a professor and a United States senator.”
This past March, on the campaign trail in Long Island City, she told supporters, “My father was a janitor but his daughter got a chance to be a teacher, a college professor, a Senator and a candidate for President of the United States.”
Her brother, David Warren, doesn’t quite see it that way.

Brother Furious Over Her Story
According to recent reports, Warren’s brother has been “furious” about her using the ‘janitor’ story.
It seems her father was actually a maintenance worker, a vastly different position.
“Families can also disagree on the details of a shared life,” the Boston Globe reported. “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.”
More from the Globe:
“When she called her dad a janitor during the early stages of this, David was furious,” said Pamela Winblood, 78, a longtime friend of David who had fallen out with him and supports Warren’s presidential bid. “He said, ‘My Dad was never a janitor.’ I said, ‘Well, he was a maintenance man.’”
As noted above, she made one of the janitor claims in response to lying about her Native American heritage. Is there anything she won’t fabricate when trying to convince the American people that she’s lived a normal life?

Elizabeth Warren’s brother: ‘My Dad was never a janitor.’
Is anything about Elizabeth Warren’s bio true?
She’s 1/1024 Native American and now this…

She Battles the Truth and Always Loses
Warren’s never-ending battle with the truth about her past has been well documented, especially as it relates to her famous claim of Native American ancestry. A claim she used to propel her career as a minority.
Politico reported in 2012 that Warren “listed herself as a minority law teacher for nearly a decade from 1986 to 1995.”
She did nothing to correct the claims.

Warren stated she had no knowledge that Harvard was pushing her minority status, but for a decade prior, Warren self-identified as a minority professor and only stopped and went back to listing herself as white once she made it to Harvard Law.
She would eventually be forced to admit she’s not a “person of color” after a disastrous DNA test stunt showed she was 1/1204th Native American.
Who knows – Perhaps her father was 1/1024th janitor as well?
