Warren Deletes Tweet Celebrating DNA Test Results
White House hopeful Elizabeth Warren, who had claimed to possess Native American heritage over the course of her academic career, has quietly deleted a year-old tweet prematurely celebrating DNA test results confirming Native American heritage.
On October 15, 2018, Warren had tweeted, “My family (including Fox News-watchers) sat together and talked about what they think of @realDonaldTrump’s attacks on our heritage. And yes, a famous geneticist analyzed my DNA and concluded that it contains Native American ancestry.”
In fact, the test confirmed that Warren had less Native American blood than the average American. Trump tweeted, “She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American. Now Cherokee Nation denies her, ‘DNA test is useless.’ Even they don’t want her. Phony!”
Warren apparently deleted her tweet after PJ Media columnist Jim Treacher tweeted, “Happy Anniversary to Elizabeth Warren’s DNA Test!” on Tuesday.
