Well, it looks like Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), aka Fauxahontas, released the results of her DNA test and is looking to collect from President Donald Trump, who promised her $1 million for her to take a test to prove she is Native American. However, not only is Trump thumbing his nose at her, but it looks like fellow Democrats have had their fill of her too.
First, The Boston Globe reports:
Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that provides “strong evidence’’ she had a Native American in her family tree dating back 6 to 10 generations, an unprecedented move by one of the top possible contenders for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.
The analysis of Warren’s DNA was done by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a genius grant, for his work on tracking population migration via DNA analysis.
He concluded that “the vast majority” of Warren’s ancestry is European, but he added that “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.”
The inherent imprecision of the six-page DNA analysis could provide fodder for Warren’s critics. If O.C. Sarah Smith were fully Native American, that would make Warren up to 1/32nd native. But the generational range based on the ancestor that the report identified suggests she’s between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American. The report notes there could be missed ancestors.
However, when Trump heard about the release of the DNA test results, he blew it off.
“I owe her?” he said to a reporter who asked him about the bet. “She owes the country an apology. What’s her percentage? 1/1,000th?”
“I’ll only do it if I can test her personally, and th “I’ll only do it if I can test her personally, and that will not be something I will enjoy doing either,” Trump said when asked about his offer to pay $1 million to Warren’s favorite charity if she could prove her claim of being an Indian. at will not be something I will enjoy doing either,” Trump said when asked about his offer to pay $1 million to Warren’s favorite charity if she could prove her claim of being an Indian.
“Who cares?” Trump said when asked about the DNA test. When pressed on the once-promised $1 million payment, Trump responded: “I didn’t say that. You better read it again.”
Some tried to say Trump was backing out, but if you listen to what he said, he did make it very personal, not what Warren attempted to do. Listen for yourself.
Warren, in typical Democrat-victim persona, claimed that Trump was doing nothing more than issuing a “creepy physical threat.”
We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy physical threats about me, right? He’s scared. 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. It may soothe his ego – but it won’t work. pic.twitter.com/2rfPSlvlQA

“We all know why Donald Trump makes creepy physical threats about me, right?” she tweeted. “He’s scared. 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.”
How in the world that is perceived as a threat is anyone’s guess.
Still, Democrats even turned on Warren over the tests.
“Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now? Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???” tweeted Obama 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina.

Former Obama chief campaign strategist and White House adviser David Axelrod tweeted, “The risk I’m sure she considered? This elevates it.”
Pretty extraordinary video to surface even before you enter the race. It says:
1)@SenWarren is 100% running.
2)She thinks this Pocahontas crap is a potential problem.
3)She wants to dispose of it now, lest she be Birtherized.
The risk I’m sure she considered? This elevates it. https://t.co/zzxVFdL00C

“This seems like a distraction,” wrote Jeff Blattner, former chief counsel to Sen. Edward Kennedy and former deputy assistant attorney general.
Agree — but I wonder about the timing. I assume she wanted to get it out of the way before candidates’ 2020 announcements post-election. But Dems need to stay on message between now and 11/6, and this seems like a distraction.

Oh, well, this is nothing more than another dog and pony show, political theater, all designed to keep your eye off the ball and pull you emotionally towards a candidate or party that will continue to attack your freedoms, America.
