Elizabeth Warren, typical white person

Adjust Comment Print

Warren drew mockery from conservatives after a test's analysis released Monday showed her Native American ancestor could go back as many as 10 generations and thus make her as as little as 1/1,024th Native American.

He started Tuesday with three tweets claiming Warren's DNA test is "bogus" and that she perpetrated a "scam and a lie".

Kim TallBear, the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Peoples, Technoscience and Environment at the University of Alberta, issued a statement saying "For Elizabeth Warren to centre a Native American ancestry test as the next move in her fight with Republicans is to make yet another strike - even if unintended - against tribal sovereignty". "But DNA & family history has nothing to do with tribal affiliation or citizenship, which is determined only - only - by Tribal Nations".

Warren released the test results Monday in part to push back against Trump's taunts about her claim of Native American ancestry.

"Trump also claimed today that Harvard, where Warren has taught law, called her "a person of color" (amazing con), and would not have taken her otherwise!"

Although it is early days yet, site oddschecker.com has put her in with 12/1 odds of being the next President, third behind Donald Trump and Kamala Harris. There is no evidence that Harvard ever publicly described her in that manner.

Abby Huntsman echoed Hostin's take, stating, "I think of her as a smart woman and not getting into petty politics, and that's exactly what this is, so I found this to be pretty embarrassing for her. Huntsman I think the majority of this room right here is probably more native American than Elizabeth Warren is".

"So I guess she really is Native American after all".

At a rally in July, Trump said: "And we will say, 'I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian ... we'll see what she does".

The result: Most white Americans have more Native American blood than Senator Warren.

"I'll only do it if I can test her personally", he said. "It's like the Kool-Aid Man saying, "I don't actually care about Kool-Aid.' No no no no no - you jumped through my f*uckin" wall because you were that excited that I was maybe doing to drink Kool-Aid, and now I have to call a contractor to fix this sh*t".

"I believe that I was recruited at Harvard because I'm a good teacher, and recruited for my other jobs because I do good work", she said. Whether you love Warren or loathe her should depend on her ideas and ideals, her deeds and words - not on her genetic ancestry.

Trump has bucked decades of precedent by refusing to release the returns.
