Just how authentic are Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Cherokee heritage? As it turns out, she her links to the tribe are even more ambiguous than her understanding of basic economics, but the internet has been the gift that has never stopped giving since the entire world found that out.
Here, the senator is shown running around with people she once claimed were close ancestors. So close, in fact, that she said her parents had to elope because her grandparents didn’t approve of her mother’s heritage. Seeing as that Senator Warren has all of 1/1,024th Native American heritage according to DNA test results, its clear that story was entirely fabricated.
Nevertheless, the senator is doubling down — even amidst a statement from from the Cherokee Nation itself condemning the DNA test stunt. She is demanding that President Donald Trump fork up the $1 million he pledged to a charity of her choice if she was able to prove she had Native American heritage. Seeing as 1/1,024 of 1 million is 976, the richest President in American history should have no problem with cutting the check.
Regardless, it’s hard to see this as anything other than a political victory for everyone who doesn’t like Elizabeth Warren.
