Elizabeth Warren Refuses DNA Test for Native American Genes

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, aka the female Bernie Sanders, has indicated that she has no intention of running for the White House in 2020.

And perhaps it’s because she’s recognized that the so-called ‘faux-cahontas’ scandal is her very own Bridgegate.

She continues to maintain that she’s a minority because she has Native American genes in her blood.

But, so far, she’s hasn’t offered much evidence. And after the declaration of non-intent to run, she also refused a call for a DNA test to verify her heritage.

When asked, she demurred, explaining she’ll rely solely on ‘family lore’.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren batted down calls for her to take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage in an interview that aired Sunday.

“I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere,” Warren said of her ancestry on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

The Massachusetts Democrat has been under increased pressure to provide evidence of her Native American roots, with President Trump repeatedly mocking her as “Pocahontas” as recently as Saturday.

An editorial this month in Massachusetts’s Berkshire Eagle urged Warren to buy a DNA test for $99 to resolve the issue once and for all.

“All the senator needs to do is spit into a tube, wait a few weeks and get her answer,” the paper said.

Asked whether she’d take an ancestry test, Warren said she wants to hold onto the folklore of her parents’ love story.
