DNA Testing: We're All American Indians, Trump Proposes Personal Test of Warren

Elizabeth Warren had DNA testing that allegedly "proves" Native American heritage. Trump proposes testing her personally

President Trump once mocked Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas" for her claim that she is a descendant of Native Americans.

To support her claim, Warren underwent DNA testing.

The New York Times reports Elizabeth Warren Releases DNA Results on Native American Ancestry.

The New York Times did not bother to report the percentage. It's a joke. Nonetheless, Warren is proclaiming victory as did the Boston Globe and others.

​Even the left-wing Vox managed to get the story mostly correct.

> In a way, the reveal is trivial: All it shows is that she had an ancestor, among hundreds in her family tree, from a Native American tribe. Her DNA, as analyzed by Stanford genealogy expert Carlos Bustamante, reveals her to be between 1/1024th Native American and 1/32nd Native American.

> If your sibling inherits slightly more Scandinavian DNA than you, does that make them more Scandinavian? No.

Mish Native American Heritage

Warren is no more native American than I am. Heck, I may be more.

My grandparents are from the Czech Republic and Germany. Perhaps I am 1% Native American.

Trump's response today: “I’ll only donate the $1 million if I can test Warren personally. That will not be something I enjoy doing either.

Here's the amusing or pathetic (depending on your point of view) video.

Cherokee Nation Chimes In

The Cherokee Nation says Warren's Use of DNA Test is 'Inappropriate', 'Wrong'

> The test, conducted by a Stanford University Professor Carlos Bustamante, showed that Warren has a Native American ancestor going back six to 10 generations ago, making her somewhere between 1/32ndand 1/1024thAmerican Indian.

> The Cherokee Nation in a statement said using a DNA test to claim connection with a tribal nation is “inappropriate” and “wrong.”

> “Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” said Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. “It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven.”

> “She comes from a well-documented line of white people and so there is ample evidence that all of her ancestors are documented white people on the census rolls, by their marriage and birth and death certificates since going back before the Trail of Tears,” she added, referring to the forced migration of Native Americans to west of the Mississippi in the 1830s.

Damn, Another Correction

Democrats Fall Into Stupid Trap Again

Once again, Democrats just cannot help themselves.

They keep falling into the "stupid trap", countering anything Trump says that is silly, with absurd silliness of their own.

This is absolutely stupid and just 22 days in front of midterm elections.

She never claimed to be all native American... several members of my family have had DNA tests and none have shown any native American ancestry. So it is noteworthy that she does, and it is in line with what she claimed. It's also noteworthy that fraud Trump refuses to honor his lost bet.

Hooray for distractions! With news about the Fed and the Saudis in recent days, reality had encroached far too closely to the comfortable idiocy of American politics. Hopefully the danger has passed and we can get back to debating ethnicity, abortion, and the merits of safe spaces!
