Daily Beast Treats DNA Test as Vindication for Elizabeth Warren

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass. speaks during a town hall-style gathering in Woburn Ma Trump calls Elizabeth Warren ‘total fraud,’ offers to give DNA test himself

The senator also attempted to goad Trump into making good on a promise he had made to donate $1m to her favourite charity, "paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian". "Like many other Americans, she has a family story of Cherokee and DE ancestry and evidence of Native ancestry".

"I think she's guilty of claiming she's an American Indian but has no proof - and then [is] using it for applications for college and political reasons", she said.

Warren released the DNA test widely Monday - suggesting as much as 1/64 of her DNA was from a Native American population - along with a folksy campaign video that retold a vague family story about a Native American on her mother's side. More than a dozen women have accused him of sexual misconduct - all liars, Trump says.

He also attacked Warren by saying she benefited professionally from identifying as Native American.

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

Many Oklahomans take pride in their Indian blood even if, as in Warren's case, they can not trace an ancestor to the original tribal rolls.

The report goes further, stating that if a move doesn't materialise, he will be allowed to leave for €200m in the summer of 2020. The Spanish newspaper also believe that Kylian Mbappe's emergence has put the Brazilian in the "shadows" at PSG .

Warren, a Democrat from MA, released the test results on Monday, showing that she had as little as 1/1,024th Native American ancestry.

Because it just really could have been, I believe Warren believes herself to be part Native, that she is one of the millions of Americans who have been told they have Native blood (though often don't); who, while wishcasting for identity, alight on Native American because #motherearth and #nicehair and because Natives tend to put up with white people parachuting in for a perceived spiritual hit. Being between 0.09 and 1.5 percent Native American hardly makes her a minority, but for Warren who wants to claim racial victimization, this is all the evidence she needs. He later upped the ante by saying "I'll only do it if I can test her personally". Now Cherokee Nation denies her, "DNA test is useless". She used the tagline "Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee", under each recipe. Warren is probably more Neanderthal than Native American, just like me. We host a roundtable discussion of Native American activists and journalists to respond to Warren's DNA test and the subsequent media coverage.

Charles Fried, the Harvard law professor who recruited Warren, has said any suggestion that she got her job in part because of a claim of minority status is "totally stupid, ignorant, uninformed and simply wrong".

"I think the line is crossed when we engage in mocking tweets or behaviors that have really nothing to do with the everyday issues that people are facing in this country". "I don't know", Mullin added. "We're not trying to play politics here either".

But she listed herself as Native for years in the Association of American Law School Directory, and according to The Boston Globe, she "had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and at Harvard University Law School, where she was a tenured faculty member starting in 1995". "But if you come at him that way, you best not miss", Douthat writes.
