How ridiculous! Anyone is free to get their DNA tested if they so desire.

The orange dotard challenged Warren to prove she had native-American blood, and she did. (Btw, he reneged on his promise to pay $1million to charity – true to form.)

Her DNA is her DNA – she can't change it. She never claimed to be part of a tribe, so in what way did she undermine tribal interests?

Better late than never, lol.

It’s a pity she took Donnie boy’s bait.

If you try having a conversation with a rat you end up in the gutter.

Elizabeth Warren did make claims about having a 'Cherokee ancestor'. The Cherokee are a political entity, not a distinct ethnicity or racial group that can be ever be determined by any DNA test. To suggest otherwise creates confusion about the nature of their membership criteria, even if you acknowledge that you are not a member.

The DNA test proved that she had a tiny, tiny, tiny, bit of native American somewhere in her family history. The natives in Patagonia at the end of the south American continent have that same genetic marker.

She took the DNA test only because Trump said he would donate $1M to a charity of her choice. The DNA showed she has some native American in her DNA, so Trump should pay up. It would be good if that helped Cherokee living below the poverty line and was used to create a foundation, so as many people are helped for as long as possible.

No, she didn’t, even the Cherokee nation disputed that. If you go by that idiots claim then most Americans have Native American in them to a certain degree. She got called on it, the woman is a racist for trying to take advantage of a minority group just to further her education, the woman is atrocious!

Yes, that she wasn’t Native American, half or even a quarter.

She’s more Irish than anything else, which there is nothing wrong with that and remember, the woman said, I’m Native American, so one would assume when making that statement you are really what you claim to be and she failed miserably, the woman will never be President, I hope and pray for it.

As long as the Dems keep putting up losers like these, Trump seems assured to get reelected. Funnily enough, I think Tulsy Gabbard would have a shot, except the Democrat party establishment hate her. They would rather have Hillary 2.0.

They disputed that DNA makes someone of their culture, nothing else. You're making inferences that are not logical.

No. This is not accurate.

She got called on it, the woman is a racist for trying to take advantage of a minority group just to further her education, the woman is atrocious!

There is zero evidence that Warren waved her claim about to further her career. Let's stick to reality. I know it's asking a lot for a Trumpophile.

@commanteer Fortunately for Trump, I doubt the Dems will nominate Tulsi - even with her LGBTQ baggage and being a Hindu ( neither of which I would hold against her ) she would at least have a shot against Trump if the economy takes a major dive, whilst Elizabeth would have virtually zero chance.

Hillary 2.0 eh? You never know - They might just be dumb enough to nominate Hillary again if she runs again, or Biden or Sanders if they run. Also you never know, one of these dark horses might get the nomination like Obama did in 2008.

Her claim was very dodgy but I think racist is pushing it.

Refusing to rent to black people is balls-out racist.

Still plenty of time for that to happen. If they trot out their old war horses again, they haven't a chance. I think those days are over.
