Elizabeth Warren has also told a story about how a school principal fired her from a teaching job after she became “visibly pregnant.”
In a 2008 clip, Warren said something quite different about her decision to go back to graduate school and stay at home for a couple of years.
Warren has also claimed that she is the daughter of a janitor. It’s a compelling story.
In the video below, President Obama says Elizabeth Warren is a janitor’s daughter.
Contrary to her story, A Cherokee blogger says something completely different about it. According to her, Warren allegedly listed her father as “Flight Instructor” on her dad’s death certificate where it says “Decedent’s Unusual Occupation (Give kind of work done during most of working life). The informant was “Mrs. Elizabeth Warren.” The “Decedent’s Usual Occupation (Give kind of work done during most of working life)” listed “Flight Instructor” as her father’s occupation.
Allegedly in her father’s obituary, he was listed as a flight instructor during the war and a self-employed businessman – not a flight instructor.

Warren says her father was a janitor nowadays, but when he died, she supposedly listed his work as “flight instructor.” In the obituary, there was no mention of janitor but instead, flight instructor and businessman.
Which is it? Was Elizabeth Warren’s father a janitor most of his life or did she list him as something else on the death certificate? Or, was her father a flight instructor for most of his life and is now lying to us? Warren should clarify.
