If you haven't heard the news, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is 1/1024th Native American...maybe.
Just checked the full DNA report , and it does say 6-10 generations rather than 1/32. As @kerpen notes, math would show it's 1/64 to 1/1024, unless we're missing something. See also this chart https://t.co/dnvbKFFcDu https://t.co/IhLF9kz8k4— Philip Klein (@philipaklein) October 15, 2018
Yesterday Warren released an entire campaign in an attempt to refute claims she faked her heritage to get ahead in her career. That campaign has backfired.
With just three weeks to go before the 2018 midterm elections, Warren just made herself a major topic on the left and the right. So far, Warren seems to be one of the few who thought dropping this issue into the final stretch of campaign season was a good idea.
President Obama's 2012 presidential campaign manager doesn't like the optics.
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???— Jim Messina (@Messina2012) October 15, 2018
Keep in mind Warren continues to deny she's running for President in 2020, but yesterday's move solidified that claim is just as bogus as her Native American heritage.
Meanwhile, the Cherokee Nation isn't buying Warren's explanations either and issued a brutal statement refuting her "evidence" as "useless."
