"Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public".
The DNA test results show Warren is somewhere between 1/64 and 1/1,024 Native American, or between 0.097 and 0.156 percent. The Cherokee Nation, which in 2012 mostly stayed out of the furor, said it was "inappropriate" for Warren to claim a connection to the tribal nation - most likely aware of how this could be a major campaign issue in a few years and unwilling to be drawn into it.
An ancestor six generations removed would make Warren 1/64th Native American while an ancestor as much as 10 generations removed would render the Massachusetts Democrat only 1/1024th Native American, Blaine Bettinger, a genealogist and author who specializes in DNA evidence, explained to the Associated Press.
These claims were echoed by Donald Trump, who most notably called Mrs Warren "Pocahontas", which has been regarded a racial slur. She's out there claiming that she's Native American just because she's from Oklahoma.
"I'll only do it if I can test her personally", he said. There was a 2014 scientific study and they said that the average European American walking around is.18% Native American and she's half of that.
As for Who Cares?, The Daily Show's Trevor Noah has a pretty terrific response - watch it below - but first, a recap of the recent back-and-forths between Trump and Warren.
Abby Huntsman echoed Hostin's take, stating, "I think of her as a smart woman and not getting into petty politics, and that's exactly what this is, so I found this to be pretty embarrassing for her. Huntsman I think the majority of this room right here is probably more native American than Elizabeth Warren is".
The Media Research Center examined the Monday evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS to determine whether or not Warren was painted as being vindicated regarding her often-criticized claim that she is part Native American. "I respect the distinction, & don't list myself as Native in the Senate", Warren said. On Monday, Trump said he would pay up, but only if he "can test her personally".
"That will not be something I enjoy doing either", Trump said. "It may soothe his ego - but it won't work".
Warren's release of the DNA report on Monday was accompanied by a almost six-minute, campaign-style video that recounted her background and takes direct aim at Trump, with Warren saying his mocking of Native Americans is "not what America stands for".
The senator also attempted to goad Trump into making good on a promise he had made to donate $1m to her favourite charity, "paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian". "Release your tax returns - or the Democratic-led House will do it for you soon enough".
