Just last fall, Elizabeth Warren was declaring victory over a DNA test, even though it only proved she was 1/1,024 Native American. Now she is apologizing to the Cherokee Nation for even doing the test. Can you say damage control?
Fraud Elizabeth Warren Attempts to Rescue Her Presidential Run, Apologizes for DNA Stunt
Democrat presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren, who hasn’t officially declared her candidacy for the White House, issued an apology to the Cherokee Nation this week for her DNA test stunt.
“We are encouraged by this dialogue and understanding that being a Cherokee Nation tribal citizen is rooted in centuries of culture and laws not through DNA tests,” Cherokee Nation Executive Director of Communications Julie Hubbard told Tulsa World. “We are encouraged by her action and hope that the slurs and mockery of tribal citizens and Indian history and heritage will now come to an end.”
Hubbard did not reveal the contents of the letter Warren sent.
In October 2018, Warren published the results of a DNA test which showed she might be 1/1024th Native American. She used this as “proof” she is Cherokee. She’s actually a white woman, which we’ve known all along.
Warren has been a train wreck for months. It doesn’t look like her 2020 campaign is going anywhere fast.
