In response to a headline about Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to take a DNA test to prove that her claims of being part Native American are valid, Facebook’s policy communications manager, Nu Wexler, decided to go with the following analogy in her defense.
DNA test the 97% of Congress that claims Irish ancestry on St. Patrick’s Day. https://t.co/hkQGOfdwGQ

Basically, he’s saying that if you are not of Irish descent yet observe St. Patrick’s Day by wearing green, you are making a fraudulent claim about your ancestry.
"Elizabeth Warren claimed minority status at Harvard, committed academic fraud and while also plagiarizing recipes for a native cookbook"
"Yeah well.. How many people in congress who wear green on St. Patricks Day are Irish?"

How many have received grants or benefits (besides beer and stuffed cabbage) from claiming to be Irish in St Patrick’s day?

How does one even come up with a take like that?
