Elizabeth Warren Failed to Delete Her DNA Video
FLASH POLL: Should Adam Schiff RESIGN?
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren's presidential campaign tried to scrub an embarrassing online video that intended to prove her Native American heritage, only to have it blow up in her face shortly after that.
Fortunately, the Washington Free Beacon saved the video (for posterity's sake) before her campaign could erase this hilarious bit of history.
The Daily Wire's Amanda Prestigiacomo reports:
In the five-minute video, Warren shows clips of Trump and other Republicans mocking her as the "fake Pocahontas" and "Fauxcahontas" while her family members vouch for her Native American claims. This is before she brags about taking a DNA test and calls a professor of genetics to confirm her Native American ancestry. "The facts suggest you absolutely have a Native American ancestor in your pedigree," the professor tells a pleased Warren over the phone.
But while being as little as 1/1,024th Native American cut it for Warren, it didn't quite do so with the general public. Warren quickly moved into damage control mode for posting the video.
The GOP blog post highlighted the senator's past year spent covering her tracks "following her disastrous DNA fiasco":
- The Cherokee Nation responded to her DNA test saying it was "useless to determine tribal citizenship."
- She attempt apologize for the "harm" she caused by lying about her heritage.
- Contrary to what Harvard Law said, Warren admitted she wasn't a "person of color.
- She deleted the "fact squad" section on her "Heritage" from her campaign website.
