Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 17, 2018

"Senator Elizabeth Warren does not claim to be a citizen of any tribal nation, and she is not a citizen of the Eastern Band," he said. "Like many other Americans, she has a family story of Cherokee and Delaware ancestry and evidence of Native ancestry." Sneed went on to say that Warren "has not used her family story or evidence of Native ancestry to gain employment or other advantage" and that "on the contrary, she demonstrates respect for tribal sovereignty."

I predict war between the Cherokee Nation and the United States of America.

Think about it. Trump gets his Victory Parade, Cherokee get to sue for reparations, while defense contractors and the 1% make heap big wampum. Everyone's a winner, you know, just like at a casino.

I saw no picture of any chief except from 1938 or something. I would expect to see a guy with feathers on his head an a tear in his eye, you know, from this century.

is no one aware that trump HATES native americans. as much or more than black people. trump was involved in some nonsense about the unfair advantage that the nations had pertaining to casino gambling on the reservations. he lost. and never got over it. anybody notice how many of warrens' former colleagues and employers praise her skills and integrity? trump supporters always bring to mind that old saying about what constitutes a "good" indian. "The only good trump supporter is a .............trump supporter". i know how i'm inclined to fill in the blank.

Trumplethinskin named the terms of the bet with Warren over several months of campaigning... outlining all the reasons why she was lying about it.

He lost the bet.

""We will take that little kit -- but we have to do it gently. Because we're in the #MeToo generation, we have to do it gently," the president trolled. "And we will very genlty take that kit, and slowly toss it, hoping it doesn't injure her arm, and we will say: I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian."

Analysis: Just about everything you've read on the Warren DNA test is wrong

We are not trying to defend Warren's decision to release the test, just to set the record straight about what the test shows. The media bungled the interpretation of the results -- and then Warren's opponents used the uninformed reporting to undermine the test results even further. We fell into this trap as well, and were too quick to send out a tweet (now deleted) that made an inaccurate comparison. We should have not relied on media reporting before tweeting.

Warren's Native American DNA, as identified in the test, may not be large, but it's wrong to say it's as little as 1/1024th or that it's less than the average European American. Three Pinocchios all around -- including to our tweet.

What a stupid ass post. This is why people are sick and tired of the bulls*t.
Warren made a tactical error and Wapo is circling the wagons to save face instead of moving along.

Oh no, they need to rewrite the narrative like every other misstep dems make.

take a grain of sand and manufacture it into a coastline.
then defend it with just as much manufactured team outrage.

I can't wait for the wet pants in 2 weeks. another failed election to blame on racists.

I know, Sheeple, you prefer the GOP talking points even if they are wrong (from above link):

"Warren might even be less Native American than the average European American."
-- news release from the Republican National Committee, Oct. 15, 2018

"Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed. She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American."
-- President Trump, in a tweet, Oct. 16

After being egged on by President Trump, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released the results of a DNA test Oct. 15 that indicated that she had a Native American ancestor.

The results -- which identified Native American DNA from six to 10 generations ago -- were immediately misinterpreted.

Of course, you can't. That's because everyone knows you hate Democrats, even a progressive one like Warren, more than you hate Trump and the GOP.

#33 | Posted by Gal_Tuesday at 2018-10-18 01:04 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 1

It's entirely possible I support Warren, Gal, that's not the topic.

The topic is defending continuous mistakes, like the 2016 primaries and campaign,
and manufacturing narratives (racism, misogyny, nazis) instead of introspection, admission, and change.

The party,, and their MSM lapdogs, have yet to admit error.
They are making the same mistakes, which will lead to mid-term defeat, and 2020 WH

Your post and linked article are evidence of that hardheaded stubbornness.

Trump has called Warren "Pocahontas" for several years now and went so far as to dare her to take a DNA test, and then when she responds by calling his bluff, you accuse her of manufacturing a racism narrative "instead of turning to introspection, admission and change"? LOL

Warren has never claimed to be a full blood Native and there is no evidence it ever helped her get into college, get a job etc.

There is evidence that she got where she is through hard work while Trump couldn't even run a casino.

Warren is no more Indian than the majority of white folk. In fact, she is somewhat less Indian by DNA than the majority of white folk.

Having a trace of Indian DNA does not an Indian make. She is a member of no tribe at all. She couldn't open a Casino under Indian rights. She couldn't collect government benefits under that thin margin of DNA.

She seems hell bent of making an ass out of herself. Perhaps there is some donkey DNA in the mix as well.

Look in the mirror. You're blatantly lying about what Trump said, accusing others of moving the goal posts while you're doing it yourself. You can't even answer why you're doing that.

You and Trump are both trolls, except he appears to be a smarter troll than you are.

No amount of DNA does an Indian make.

DNA isn't what makes someone an Indian.

That's not how it's done.
