Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) might have set himself up for selfie-inflicted damage Thursday.
Now a Fox News contributor, he posted a photo on Twitter that mocked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)

His post was in reference to her recent release of DNA test results that showed, as she has long claimed, evidence of a Native American ancestor six to 10 generations ago.
Many Twitter users found the photo evidence that Chaffetz has a serious personality defect: casual racism.

This fucking dumbass has-been nothing burger doesn't even sense the racism in his lame attempt to be funny.

A trio of jokes:
-It’s hard to say which of you is more wooden.
-Why are you at Disneyland and Senator Warren is in DC? She’s the one who still has a job.
-One of the people in this photo is a dinosauric relic of American racism, best forgotten. The other is a cigar store statue.

Meanwhile in North Dakota, Republican-backed voter ID requirements are attempting to suppress the Native American vote.

Chaffetz did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
