Trump finally drove Elizabeth Warren crazy enough to release her DNA.
That, or she’s likely running in 2020 and figured out that lying about her heritage wasn’t such a great look.

Yes, she is … well sorta.
As much as most Americans can likely claim.
From the Daily Beast:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has taken the extraordinary step of releasing DNA test results that provide “strong evidence” that she has Native American ancestry, the Boston Globe reports.
The analysis of Warren’s DNA was reportedly done by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor, and shows that she had a Native American in her family tree dating back six to 10 generations.
Six to 10 generations. LOL.
We’re not sure this really helped Liz’s case.

Would she have qualified for the education monies if they knew her heritage was this minute?
Is discovering she is 1/512th Native American the narrative victory Elizabeth Warren thinks it is?

Not at all.
John is .2% Native American. I highly doubt he could get preferential racial treatment from Harvard.

There is no tribe that accepts that low a percentage. Typically 1/8 to 1/16th is the cutoff.

She would have been better off not releasing her DNA.
The best part of the 2020 Dem primary will be Beto and Elizabeth Warren attacking each other over whether the other is faking their heritage

Ugh, we can’t even think ahead that far yet.

It’s gonna be LIT!
There will be a lot of mathsplaining. HuffPost take on why 1/32 is factually no different from 1/512

At that point we will have reached Peak Stupid. I have a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach that 2020 will make us look back with fondness at 2016.

Sad but true.
