Trump Escalates Warren “Pocahontas” Feud

Native American
I wonder what REAL native Americans think about all this...

If Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) though she was finally putting the “Pocahontas” controversy to rest, she was sorely mistaken.

Late Tuesday, Trump went after Warren—demanding she apologize for perpetuating a “fraud” against the American public for publicly identifying as a Native American.

Warren had been accused of lying about being a Native American in the 1980s and 1990s to further her career as a law professor. Warren had been hired by Harvard, who then touted her as their first “woman of color” law professor.

Despite being blonde-haired and blue-eyed, Warren continued to double-down on her claims—going so far as releasing a DNA test on Tuesday morning which she claimed proved she was telling the truth.

The only problem was that, while Warren did have some Native American ancestry, it was so remote that no logical person would consider it to be evidence of minority status. Warren is somewhere between 1/64 and 1/1024 Native American—anywhere between 1.5% and 0.09%, which is in line with (or potentially even less) than the average for a white American.
