WTF MSM!? Math is hard: Boston Globe-Elizabeth Warren edition

WTF MSM!? Math is hard: Boston Globe-Elizabeth Warren edition

A DNA test, provided by Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren to the Boston Globe, proves she has a little Native American blood due to an ancestor some 6-10 generations ago.

So today, baited by Trump's gibes, Elizabeth Warren rushes headlong into self-parody with a lavish rollout of a DNA test that suggests that she may be (checks notes) 1/1,024 Native American.

The DNA analysis Warren released Monday provides strong evidence she does have Native American heritage.

Trump since then has undertaken a strategy of soaking up political oxygen with a slew of extended TV interviews, call-ins, and rallies.

Warren's heritage has been under scrutiny since 2012 during her campaign for the Senate against Scott Brown who ran attack ads aimed at her "Cherokee" heritage. "You better read it again", he told reporters outside the White House.

"I should've claimed to have been Native American, maybe I could've gotten into Harvard", he said, adding that the exercise reveals "how absurd this identity politics is". Warren released a video (below) in connection with her alleged vindication. "Who cares?" he said.

Similarly, video editing with Adobe Premiere is up to 34 percent and 97 percent faster respectively, as per Intel's own testing. Intel has launched its 9th generation of processors globally, including the new Core i9 , Core i7 and Core i5 processors.

At the July rally where Trump made the original offer, he said, "And we will say, 'I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian. we'll see what she does".

Despite Monday's DNA results, Senator Warren mentioned she is now not enrolled with any tribe. Trump would never let her hear the end of it. I do not think she'd be hard at all, ' Trump said.

It is not clear what he meant when he said he would personally test Warren's DNA.

The other boot fell on October 10 when Warren released a report of a test performed by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and "famous geneticist", as Warren says on her Twitter account. She and Mr Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native-American ancestry.

"She'll make our country into Venezuela", Trump told reporters Monday. "It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven". His spokesperson, Kellyanne Conway, however, stated, "I haven't looked at the test". What counts as Native American heritage is a question with different answers among the 573 legally recognized tribes in the United States. "Warren has far less than one percent Native American ancestry, and that her genetic makeup is perhaps similar to that of the average white person in the U.S". And we will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn't injure her arm even though it only weighs probably two ounces.

"As a kid, I never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our Native American heritage".
