Doing it his way: Warren emulates Trump as she taunts him

Who cares’ Trump comments on Elizabeth Warren DNA test

Earlier this week, Warren released details of her background, including a DNA analysis that revealed she had at least one Indian ancestor between six and ten generations ago, meaning she is between one-64th and one-1,024th Cherokee.Speaking to Fox and Friends, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham announced that he would take his own DNA test. At the same time, the report could embolden critics by showing only trace amounts of that heritage - which Republicans have charged she used to advance her career at Harvard.

"I think she's probably disqualified because she made a fool out of herself", he said of Elizabeth Warren during a political rally in Montana. "Let them have their story".

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) speaks at the National Press Club August 21, 2018 in Washington, DC.

But a backlash against Warren also swelled within hours, led at first by prominent Native Americans who accused her of attempting to appropriate indigenous ancestry for political points. She told Harvard Law School that she was Native American, and was identified that way in Harvard records without objection. Warren had not merely delegitimised the use of DNA tests but dishonoured "legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven".

"Of course, given the popularity of Trump's "Pocahontas" line on the right, there were already indications Monday that the president and his allies would not be assuaged by any efforts verifying Warren's claim to some Native American ancestry". Recent studies suggest that people of European ancestry have around 2% Neanderthal DNA, perhaps more. 'The tribes and only the tribes determine citizenship'.

Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. also mentioned in a statement that DNA tests can not give evidence to lay claim to a certain tribe.

Djokovic cruises past Coric to win fourth Shanghai title
He missed the second half of 2017 with elbow and off-court issues, but said he had adapted his game since the operation. Dropping just four points on his serve in the first set, Djokovic demolished Coric 6-3.

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.

He started Tuesday with three tweets claiming Warren's DNA test is "bogus" and that she perpetrated a "scam and a lie". The percentages that have been reported range from 1/64 to 1/1,032 Native American.

Chuck Hoskin was also critical of President Trump, saying he "should not be calling her 'Pocahontas, ' " and that he "should be looking into what the needs of Indian Country are, because the needs are there". "We're not trying to play politics here either".

Back in the 1990s, when she was a professor at Harvard University, she listed herself as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory.

Indeed, there are sensitive, appropriate ways to talk about potentially having Native American ancestors.

Jim Messina, who served as President Barack Obama's 2012 campaign manager and as a White House deputy chief of staff, said on Twitter: "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?" Cherokee Nation officials have said the tribe does not use DNA tests to establish membership, and that the claim cheapens the identities of tribal members with deeper ties to their Indian past.
