Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is so confident he has more Native American blood than Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., that he announced Tuesday on “Fox & Friends” that he’s going to take a DNA test and reveal the results on the show.
“I’m going to take a DNA test, all of you have,” Graham told the Fox News morning crew. “I have been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all be just talk, but you’re going to find out in couple weeks because I’m going to take this test.”
“I’m taking it and the results are going to be revealed here,” he announced. “This is my Trump moment, my reality TV.”
Who knew that, like planking, Warren would start a trend with the epic fail of a DNA test that showed that she was 1/1024 Native American. Maybe.
“I’m dying to know,” Graham added. “I didn’t really think much about it. But [Warren] is less than .1 of 1%. I think can beat her.”
The GOP lawmaker went on to mock Warren’s claim that Trump said he’d donate $1 million to a charity of her choice if she took a DNA test by saying if he beats her, he wants “a casino and a million bucks.”
Trump, who has a habit of calling the Democratic senator “Pocahontas,” made the offer at a campaign rally in Montana over the summer while stating the hypothetical of the two of them debating in the 2020 presidential election.
The president said he would challenge her to use one of those DNA kits they “sell on television for $2” IF Warren brought up her heritage during the debate.
“I will give you $1 million to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian,” he told the crowd he would tell Warren. “I have a feeling she will say no.”
