The Boston Globe keeps making corrections to its Elizabeth Warren DNA story. This is what, the third correction? Fourth? We’ve lost count but what we do know is even after this update the piece is still wrong.
This is what happens when you try to make a story out of something that ISN’T a story in the first place.
Boston Globe issues another correction on the Warren story: She is "between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.” https://t.co/km3p4z5ycO

Native American heritage … interesting. So she’s what, Cherokee? Cheyenne?
There will be another correction, because's that's not what the test showed. It suggested she might be between 1/64th and 1/1024th Mexican, Colombian, or Peruvian. https://t.co/dA2R4zk79j

So does this mean she’s not really an actual Native American? Asking for a friend.
Which means she's more Hispanic than Beto.

It doesn’t take much to be more Hispanic than Robert O’Rourke but HAAAAAA.
Are we sure it's not because of the coffee she drink that morning? #JuanValdez

Ok, this editor laughed far harder at this than she should have.
It’s been that kind of day.

have the Dems considered a 'DNA shaming' approach? Might work for them. ???

Do NOT give them any ideas.
They really wanted to announce this ridiculous result?

Weird, right?! What did she think she’d gain by admitting she’s not really Native American? Maybe she’s going for the sympathy vote.
Either way, fail, fail, and more fail.
