Warren rejects DNA test to prove her heritage

WAR PATH'Can you imagine covering Bernie or Pocahontas? How about that? Trump asked the crowd Saturday night

Sen. Elizabeth Warren graciously declined request from a MA media outlet challenging her to take a DNA test in order to prove her Native American heritage.

During her campaign for Senate in 2012, incumbent Scott Brown questioned the veracity of her Native American heritage and questions have lingered ever since, now with President Donald Trump referring to her sarcastically as "Pocahontas".

Warren went on to reiterate four more times that she is not running for president, but when pressed by Todd would not commit to serving another six years in the Senate. In perhaps related news, Warren has declined to take a DNA test to establish once and for all how much - if any - Native American blood she has in her.

NBC "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd asked Warren to respond to the editorial just two days after she defended her ancestry in a regional television news program interview. "It's a part of me and nobody's going to take that part of me away", she added.

"That's the story that my brothers and I all learned from our mom and our dad, from our grandparents", Warren said.

Later on Sunday, Warren repeated her defense nearly verbatim when Berkshire Eagle editorial and the subject of her ancestry were again brought up during on interview on Fox News Sunday. 'My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fluffed two good chances in the first half and "playmaker" Henrik Mkhitaryan once again looked clumsy. A minute later Watford won a penalty when Ainsley Maitland-Niles was deemed to have brought down Roberto Pereyra in the area.

Trump has taken to calling Warren "Pocahontas" as a derogatory term because she claims to have Native American ancestry. "I am running for the United States Senate". I know who I am'.

"And eventually my parents eloped and they survived the Great Depression, they survived The Dust Bowl".

"Therefore, we offer a simple suggestion that could not even have been contemplated when Warren first listed her heritage on an employment form".

The speech was a clear attempt to put the controversy around her claims of heritage to rest and potentially another sign of 2020 presidential ambitions.

She said she wanted to turn the incident into a positive and try and lift up other people to tell their stories.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is not interested in challenging President Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
