MSNBC Host: Did Elizabeth Warren Make a Mistake?

Obama’s Former Campaign Manager is Pretty Ticked About Warren’s DNA Stunt

She understands that the Democratic base wants her to attack Trump on every front, and to fight every battle - and she thinks that the media will side with her no matter what she does.

"We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy physical threats about me, right?"

"The report by Carlos Bustamante, a distinguished Stanford University DNA ancestry expert, concluded that although "the vast majority" of Warren's ancestry is European", the test results also "strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor". She released a video of her family members discussing her claims of Native American background. Those who made it to Oklahoma intermarried, the Cherokee primarily with whites (which is why the party trick works; alternately, the Choctaw often married freed and runaway slaves, though I have yet to meet a black person claiming Native blood; go figure). Warren enjoyed an upper middle-class lifestyle with a legal career, a teaching career at two of the nation's most elite institutions, and she now serves at one of the highest levels of public service. As a former professor at Harvard Law School, Warren had listed herself as a member of a minority group in a law school directory, the New York Times reported.

"I've been told that my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian", Graham said.

Warren in 1984 contributed five recipes to a Native American cookbook called "Pow Wow Chow", according to Politifact.

"Elizabeth Warren, where the hell have you been?" writes Simon Moya-Smith, a witty Oglala Lakota and Chicano journalist.

Warren's DNA analysis, conducted by a privately hired scientist who is an expert on Native American genomics, found that her Native American ancestry was between 0.09 percent and 1.5 percent.

And so it was, back to the misery of square one, Warren checkmated, Trump bullishly ecstatic, and political conversation dumbed into oblivion.

Saudis to Acknowledge Columnist Khashoggi’s Death
Despite issuing a threat, Trump indicated he wouldn't cancel the $110 billion arms deal he negotiated with Saudi Arabia. The kingdom says the allegations are "baseless" but has offered no evidence Khashoggi ever left the consulate.

But current DNA tests don't distinguish between North and South American indigenous ancestry, and the secretary of state of the Cherokee Nation said a DNA test "is useless to determine tribal citizenship." Warren's true challenge will be Gov. Cuomo, Sen.

Skeptics have long mocked Warren citing her grandfather's "high cheekbones" as proof, and Trump has referred to the senator as "Pocahontas" poking fun at her alleged ties.

"Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed", he wrote on Twitter.

"I'm going to take a DNA test". My half-Native daughter's classmates who, during the 1997 drought in Los Angeles, suggested she lead them in a rain dance?

The President's latest triumph in this regard is the revelation of the results of Senator Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren's DNA test.

The test-run of this spectacle was already made during the previous presidency, when Trump repeatedly insisted that Barack Obama was born, not in Hawaii but Kenya.

In a society where people of color are making strides in economic mobility and social advancement, we do not need Elizabeth Warren cloaking herself as a minority to promote faux victimization. "It also shows she's a presidential contender".
