Jason Chaffetz’s attempt to mock Elizabeth Warren gets blasted online

Obama’s Former Campaign Manager is Pretty Ticked About Warren’s DNA Stunt

Elizabeth Warren and her claim to Native American ancestry.

"Even now, 17 years later, none of us have completely come to terms with what happened that day, and I don't think we ever will", Police Commissioner James O'Neill said during the graduation ceremony on October 15, where a total of 249 new police officers were sworn in, reported the New York Post. She released a video of her family members discussing her claims of Native American background.

Chaffetz's photo posted in a week in which Republicans have been pressed to respond on whether they are comfortable with President Donald Trump's use of the term "Pocahontas" to refer to Sen. Others also cared because Warren had listed herself as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory.

Dukakis had been viewed as weak on national defense issues, so he recorded himself wearing a combat helmet while riding an M1-Abrams tank to show that he was not as described.

This week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in preparation for a 2020 presidential run, chose to fight back against President Trump's brutal nickname for her: Pocahontas.

"I have an election", Warren told the editorial board.

Warren has claimed her mother had enough Native American - Cherokee and DE, specifically - for her father's parents to object to their wedding.

Pakistan batsman run out in freaky fashion
The batsmen thought it crossed the boundary and he started chatting with his partner Asad Shafiq in the middle of the pitch. Lee compared it to Marnus Labuschagne's freakish run out on day two, suggesting the batsman was at fault on both occasions.

How else to explain Senator Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) hilarious self-own today, in which she, in preparation for a 2020 run, released a DNA test supposedly showing her Native American ancestry - a test that showed she was somewhere between 1/64 and 1/1024 Native American?

An ancestor six generations removed would make Warren 1/64th Native American while an ancestor as much as 10 generations removed would render the Massachusetts Democrat only 1/1024th Native American, according to Blaine Bettinger, a genealogist and author who specializes in DNA evidence.

Warren released her results to prove her Native American ancestry. In September 2017, a Globe investigation concluded that she did not.

As Donald Trump came under increasing fire over his acceptance of the Saudi King's denial of knowledge about a missing journalist, the president doubled down on a different controversy Tuesday tweeting three times about Senator Elizabeth Warren's DNA test.

Warren was born in Oklahoma, which is home to 39 tribes and where more than 7 percent of the population identifies as Native American, one of the highest proportions in the nation.

But current DNA tests don't distinguish between North and South American indigenous ancestry, and the secretary of state of the Cherokee Nation said a DNA test "is useless to determine tribal citizenship."

'It will show everyone what a phony she is!' Trump said, appearing to vow to continue using the nickname. "To be clear, I think that while the rollout of the DNA test and the decision to do a DNA test ... may not have been the best method, I also think that the Cherokee Nation response was problematic, because it actually ignores the fact that DNA testing historically has been used to exclude black natives from tribal affiliation". It won't. She is Pocahontas, in perpetuity. As Vox.com explained, members of the Cherokee Nation have long-argued that it takes more than genetics for a person to call themselves Cherokee.
