It's been 24-hours since Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren revealed the results of a long awaited DNA test "proving" she's maybe 1/1024 Native American.
Now President Trump, who has challenged Warren on the issue before and refers to her as "Pocahontas," is reacting.
Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed. She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American. Now Cherokee Nation denies her, “DNA test is useless.” Even they don’t want her. Phony!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2018
Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public. Harvard called her “a person of color” (amazing con), and would not have taken her otherwise!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2018
Thank you to the Cherokee Nation for revealing that Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is a complete and total Fraud!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2018
Warren's roll out of her DNA results wasn't just a campaign about "proving" her heritage, it was a direct shot at President Trump as Democrats gear up for 2020 presidential runs against him.
My family (including Fox News-watchers) sat together and talked about what they think of @realDonaldTrump’s attacks on our heritage. And yes, a famous geneticist analyzed my DNA and concluded that it contains Native American ancestry. pic.twitter.com/r3SNzP22f8— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) October 15, 2018
