Elizabeth Warren ‘spiking the ball’ over DNA results when she’s ‘whiter than whitey’ spurs epic hilarity – and a new nickname

They’re calling her “One Drop.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren made herself the target of even more mockery after gloating over the release of a DNA test that didn’t exactly prove anything, much less her claims of Native American ancestry.

The premature celebration by the Massachusetts Democrat and potential 2020 presidential contender of the ‘proof’ in the test results was summed up perfectly by conservative commentator and CRTV host, Allie Beth Stuckey.

Warren shared the results of her DNA test conducted by a Stanford researcher with the Boston Globe and proceeded to effectively rub President Donald Trump’ s face in it following his relentless mockery of “Pocahontas” and her alleged Native American heritage.

“A famous geneticist analyzed my DNA and concluded that it contains Native American ancestry,” Warren touted in a tweet Monday accompanied by a five-minute video.

Additional tweets from Warren drove the point home, citing that “a deep, independent investigation shows my background played no role in any job I got.”

The DNA test indicated that Warren has a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations which the Boston Globe claimed would make the Democrat senator between 1/32 and 1/512 Native American.

But as it turned out, the Globe issued a correction updating the results to show Warren’s Native American ancestry is actually 1/1024.

“We are confident it is not an error,” Carlos D. Bustamante, the Stanford University professor who conducted the analysis, noted in the Boston Globe report, though he did not actually use samples of Native American DNA.

The report revealed: “To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamante used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native American.”

According to the Globe:

Detecting DNA for Native Americans is particularly tricky because there is an absence of Native American DNA available for comparison. This is in part because Native American leaders have asked tribal members not to participate in genetic databases.

“The tribes have felt they have been exploited,” explained Lawrence Brody, a senior investigator with the Medical Genomics and Metabolic Genetics Branch at the National Institutes of Health. “The amount of genetic data that is available from Native Americans is sparse.”

 

Asked about the test results on Monday, President Trump replied, “Who cares?”

Warren’s attempt to defuse questions about her ancestry that have dogged her for years seems to have backfired amid the test results – even before the miscalculation that puts her between .09 and 3 percent Native American.

But Warren’s victory lap has only put the Pocahontas controversy back on the forefront of debate, causing face-palms by some in her own party, like former Obama campaign manager, Jim Messina.
