Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test result

Look out, Donald. She’s coming for you.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), often mocked by Donald Trump as “Pocahontas,” this morning released results of a DNA test proving she has Native American blood.

The full report comes from Stanford University professor and DNA expert Carlos D. Bustamante, Ph.D. It begins: 

Request. To analyze genetic data from an individual of European descent and determine if there is reliable evidence of Native American and/or African ancestry. The identity of the sample donor, Elizabeth Warren, was not known to the analyst during the time the work was performed.

It concludes:

While the vast majority of the individual’s ancestry is European, the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual’s pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago.

Warren reminded Trump of the promise he made at a rally July 5 in Montana:

I’m going to get one of those little [DNA testing] kits and in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she’s of Indian heritage…, And we will say, ‘I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.’

Trump now denies making the promise, but it was, of course, recorded by numerous sources.

The senator has yet to officially announce her candidacy for president in 2020, but she has just effectively pulled one of Trump’s fangs.

And so the battle is joined.

  1. He’ll never pay up. If he says he didn’t say it, in his world, people believe him, even if they were there when he said it.
    Must be nice to be able to pick your reality. 🤨

  2. Sadly, it reminded me a bit of when Obama “proved” that he was born in the US. Why did he have to prove it? Just because some orange asshole questions it? Why does she have to prove her heritage? Why can’t we ask trump to prove that he actually paid any taxes, didn’t sexually assault women, or that he knows the best words and has a big brain? F&*@wad. I truly hate that man.

    1. Idiotchild doesn’t deserve an explanation or proof, but it might sway some of his supporters. It infuriates me too that he sits smugly in the White House while men all around him are dropping like flies for either tax evasion and sexual assault.

      I do wish she’d waited until after Election Day to release these results, but perhaps she thought they would also help her in her Senate re-election race.

  3. If it does get paid you can bet your bottom dollar that the money wont come from trumps pocket.

    All I have to say to Senator Warren is Go get him Girl!

    I’d call him a mongrel, but I’ve had some good mongrel dogs, and won’t tarnish their memory

    1. I doubt he ever intended to pay or that she’s expecting him to pay. She’s just reminding everyone that he said it. I’d like to think now we’ll move on to more important issues, but of course Trump won’t, any more than he moved on after Obama released his birth certificate.

      (Naturally this all assumes the GOP is dumb enough to nominate him for a second term … )

    1. Nope. He called it “bogus” (close enough) and continues to call her Pocahontas. He ridicules the test results, as many people have. They may have a point, but I’m not good enough at math to judge.

... and that's my two cents
