Daily Beast Treats DNA Test as Vindication for Elizabeth Warren

Daily Beast Treats DNA Test as Vindication for Elizabeth Warren

Of course, that didn't stop her fans in the media from pretending the test vindicated her preposterous claim: "Elizabeth Warren Fights Trump's "Pocahontas" Taunt with DNA Test Proving Native American Roots", ran a Daily Beast headline. According to Warren's family lore, her great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, was at least partially Native American. Blackfeet Nation member Gyasi Ross told MSNBC that Warren was now as guilty as Trump of "making indigenous ancestry into a campaign prop." .

Warren tweeted Trump is a "cowardly elitist" and she "won't sit quietly for Trump's racism" so she took the test.

The Cherokee Nation was quick to condemn Warren on Monday for implying that she was among their 288,000 enrolled members. "The percentage of Native American DNA in her genome does not shrink as you go back generations. Her false claim of Indian heritage is only selling to VERY LOW I.Q. individuals!" the President tweeted.

Locally, the Cherokee Nation said the DNA tests were useless for determining tribal citizenship.

"If Warren thought that this video and DNA test would shut Trump up, she was dangerously mistaken", opined CNN's Chris Cillizza. There's no doubt, he says, that she is between one-64th and one-1024th Native American.

And like Trump, she's getting blowback: Jokes.

Hoskin said none of this helps the Cherokee Nation.

Warren on Monday released results from a DNA test that she said showed "strong evidence" she has Cherokee heritage from an ancestor "six to 10 generations ago".

Warren's claimed heritage has stirred controversy throughout her political career, dating to when she was a professor at Harvard.

The Boston Globe further reported that Warren was listed as a minority professor in The Association of American Law Schools directory for nine years (1986-1995), while she taught at the University of Texas and the University of Pennsylvania and during the beginning of her job at Harvard University.

Mr Trump has ridiculed her as "Pocahontas" over the ancestry claim. In 2012, she admitted that she did so "in the hopes that might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon a group something with people who are like I am". It makes a mockery out of DNA tests ... while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens ... whose heritage is proven.

Following yesterday's impromptu press conference, in which Trump gave his Who Cares? response to Warren's just-announced DNA results, Warren quickly turned the president's words into a fundraising move, a tweeted video called "This Is What Lying Looks Like". Warren has been criticized and made fun of for releasing DNA test results earlier this week in an effort to prove her ancestry claims.

In Oklahoma, some politicians claim Native American heritage but are careful about doing so.

Listing herself as "Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee" in a 1984 Native American cookbook entitled "Pow Wow Chow".

Warren was referring to the November 6 election, when Democrats hope to regain control of the House, which would put them in position to examine and possibly publicly release Trump's income tax returns.
