Congressman Who's Actually a Cherokee Nation Member Slams Warren

Congressman Who's Actually a Cherokee Nation Member Slams Warren

Trump said Warren "should apologize for perpetrating this fraud", and claimed that Harvard would not have otherwise hired her as a law professor.

At a campaign-style rally in July, Mr. Trump had challenged Ms. Warren, saying: "I will give a million dollars to your favorite charity if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian". Now Cherokee Nation denies her, "DNA test is useless".

The Massachusetts Senator and champion of easily disproven lies has released a video in which she reveals the results of a DNA test that shows she has a "strong" Native American ancestry. roughly 0.1-1.6%, and dating back six to ten generations.

Warren said she would hold him to the bet, asking him to donate the money to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center (NIWRC), a nonprofit which works to end gender-based violence against Native and Indigenous people.

He noted that Warren, whom he referred to as "Pocahontas (the bad version)", is "getting slammed".

Some Democrats have also criticized Warren's timing on releasing the report - just weeks before the midterm elections on November 6, when the party hopes to capitalize on a backlash against Trump to make inroads into the GOP's majorities in Congress.

None of these supportive network evening newscasts - on ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS - mentioned Warren listing herself as a minority for years when she was a college professor, and none of them could locate the outrage from the Cherokee Nation. "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".

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. Elizabeth Warren after she released the results of her DNA test. "Phony!" Trump said, thanking the tribe in a subsequent tweet.

Pocahontas, a historical figure from the 17th century who assisted English colonists in Virginia, was the daughter of a Powhatan Native American leader. So since Sen. Warren is.09 percent American Indian, she may now be eligible to own.09 percent of a casino.

We'll see. Although his answer made me wonder whether he knows how genetic testing is conducted, I take it as a sign that we can expect this little feud to continue.

"It adds fuel to that misconception that I can go out, get a DNA test and then, boom, that's all I really need", said Brandon Scott, a Cherokee Nation citizen and the executive editor of tribe's newspaper, the Cherokee Phoenix.

"There's a distinction between citizenship and ancestry". "He's trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself".

"More than ninety-five percent of her genome comes from Europe", Masha Gessen wrote in the New Yorker. Nearly immediately, Sunny Hostin chimed in, saying that she "hates" this entire situation (same, girl, same).

Controversy over released documents stretch back to Barack Obama's Presidency, when the "birther" movement spurred by Donald Trump led the former President to release his birth certificate.
