Did Elizabeth Warren Just Kill Identity Politics?

Warren DNA analysis points to Native American heritage

Elizabeth Warren Reveals DNA Evidence of Native American Ancestry, Rebuking Trump

And in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims that she is of Indian heritage because her mother said she has high cheekbones - that is her only evidence, her mother said we have high cheekbones.

Diehl has made Warren's presumed presidential ambitions the centerpiece of his argument for why voters should send him to Washington in Warren's place on Election Day. "What do the facts say?"

The professor concluded that most of the senator's DNA showed European ancestry but that it had a Native American segment. Warren is shown nodding.

Monday morning Warren rolled out an entire campaign about her background, complete with a family video, fancy website and results of a DNA test.

According to the report, "the great majority of (Warren's) identifiable ancestry is European". But he also writes that the results "strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual's pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago".

Warren pounced on Trump's evasion, splicing together footage of his comments Monday with his remarks at the rally in July.

Trump added that Warren would turn the USA into Venezuela. This was an in-kind campaign donation to the Warren for President campaign, not a reported news story.

"He's talking about stuff he doesn't have any idea about", says her nephew Mark Herring. With positive DNA test results in hand, she's pushing back - and reiterating that she did not use her ancestry to advance her academic career. "I know that everybody likes to pick their junk science or sound science depending on the conclusion, it seems some days".

"She comes from a well-documented line of white people and so there is ample evidence that all of her ancestors are documented white people on the census rolls, by their marriage and birth and death certificates since going back before the Trail of Tears", she added, referring to the forced migration of Native Americans to west of the MS in the 1830s.

"Some people have questioned my heritage and my family history", Warren says. Warren has denied using her Native American heritage to gain any advantage.

Christian Vazquez was behind the plate for the second straight night after Sandy Leon started the first two games. The Red Sox made it 4-0 when Vazquez lined a 2-1 fastball into the right field seats off Zach Britton .

She has also been a target of U.S, President Donald Trump, who had said that if she could prove her ancestry with a DNA test he would donate $1 million to a charity of her choice.

The senator then began goading Trump on Twitter.

"I didn't say that. You'd better read it again", the president said. "I have a feeling she will say no but we will hold it for the debates", the President said at a rally back in July.

She's definitely running for President in 2020.

" 'Instead of being like, "Thank you very much, Mr. Trump", or "Trump did a good job", everyone said: "Who got it?"

As far as the questionable timing of Warren's DNA release, Messina may have a point in criticizing her motives of focusing on 2020 when the 2018 midterms are just a few weeks away. "Maybe they do it to distract from the kinds of changes I'm fighting for".

Ms Warren herself is not a part of any native tribe. If one ancestor 300 years ago is enough to entitle you to "appropriate" a particular culture, there'll be very few cultures that can't properly be appropriated by the average white American. "But I haven't looked at the DNA test and it really doesn't interest me".

The Cherokee Nation, however, was not convinced or approving of this test.

She asked, "Having some memory problems, @realDonaldTrump?".
