Elizabeth Warren Tries Yet Again to Explain Her Claim of Being Native American. It’s Laugh Out Loud Funny.

She hasn’t learned a thing.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is having a really rough week after the release of her DNA test — which was done in a bid to prove she’s of Native American descent — backfired on her, showing that she has as little as .09 percent Indian blood.

Rather than just owning up to being wrong and touting her actual lineage, she’s is attempting to once again explain away the whole situation. It doesn’t appear to be going all that well for her.

“I have an election,” Warren said. “Donald Trump goes in front of crowds multiple times a week to attack me. Both of my opponents have made the same attack. I got this analysis back, and I made it public.”

The move turned out to be a PR disaster. While the mainstream media happily went along with the notion that 1/1,032 heritage actually makes someone Native American, many mocked Warren for the bizarre claim. Trump himself joined in, writing on Twitter: “Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public. Harvard called her ‘a person of color’ (amazing con), and would not have taken her otherwise!”

And Warren now says she regrets how she rolled out the DNA report — but stopped well short of apologizing.

“There’s a distinction between citizenship and ancestry. I wish I had been more mindful of that distinction,” she told the Globe. “The tribes and only the tribes determine citizenship. It’s their right as a matter of sovereignty, and they exercise that in the ways they choose to exercise it. I respect that distinction.”

Asked whether she made a mistake when she began identifying herself as Native American 30 years ago, Warren once again said she’s not really claiming to be part of any Indian group. “The distinction is: I’m not a citizen, never have claimed to be, and I wish I had been more mindful of that 30 years ago,” Warren said. “I wish I had been clearer about that — been more mindful, is the word.”

Warren was condemned for implying she was among the nearly 300,000 members of the Cherokee Nation in a statement released earlier this week. Warren is ineligible to join the group because she has no relatives listed on the Dawes Rolls, a hundred-year-old set of government documents that list Cherokee members.

As if that’s not rough enough, a descendent of Pocahontas, the famous 17-century Powhatan princess, has asked Warren for an apology for her wrongful claim of Native American ancestry, citing she did so for political gain.

“It did prove that she wasn’t the Cherokee Indian that she was claiming to be for so long,” Debbie White Dove Porreco said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “I think she’s guilty of claiming she’s an American Indian but has no proof — and then [is] using it for applications for college and for political reasons.”

“She needs to … apologize to everybody for what she has done,” Porreco said, adding that Native Americans “feel betrayed, they feel disappointed.”

Much of the controversy over this situation stems from the fact that Warren listed herself as Native American in the Association of American Law School Directory and, according to a report from the Boston Globe, changed her ethnicity from white to Native American at the University of Pennsylvania Law School where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and also at Harvard University Law School.

Some of her most ardent critics claim that her declaring herself to be Native American is what helped her land the Harvard gig.

Even more troubling is the fact that Fordham Law Review actually gave Warren the title of Harvard Law’s “first woman of color.”

WATCH: CNN Tries Getting 8 Women to Admit Trump Is Racist, But It Goes Horribly Wrong

Good going, guys. This should definitely help ratings!

If they’re trying to look silly then they’re killing it. CNN refuses to acknowledge any of the great work President Trump has done for the country simply because they don’t like him as a person. It’s abhorrent. Check out their latest attempt at getting Republicans to “admit” that 45 is a stone-cold racist… From Daily Wire: CNN’s Randi Kaye asked a group of Republican women if they thought President Donald Trump’s recent tweets attacking four far-left congresswomen were racist and all eight fired back with a resounding “no.” The segment, which aired on Tuesday night on “Anderson Cooper 360°,” featured a group of eight Trump supporters in Dallas, Texas. One supporter, Sharon Bolan, said, “I’m a brown-skinned woman. I am a legal immigrant. I agree with him.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/AC360/status/1151293969076109313?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151293969076109313&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49570%2Fcnn-tries-convince-gop-women-trump-racist-doesnt-ryan-saavedra According to freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI), all Congressional Democrats are racist. No joke. She actually said that, revealing what conservatives have known to be true for decades. Did Tlaib mean to say it, though? IT SURE LOOKS THAT WAY. Here’s how it all started… A woman sent a tweet arguing that Democrats are not doing enough to protect embattled Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN)… The attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic leadership continues to prove that this system was never meant for us. Do not applaud diversity and the “first” Muslims in any space if you’re not willing to be a true ally and defend us.#IStandwithIlhan https://twitter.com/MsMaheenAhmed/status/1117084384614473729?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1117084384614473729&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F04%2F13%2Flook-out-nancy-pelosi-rep-rashida-tlaib-just-called-out-your-whole-party-as-racist%2F Enter Tlaib, who dropped the bomb… They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse.

PHOTOS: Chris Pratt Compared to White Supremacists For Wearing ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ Shirt

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

Being proud to be an American is almost a sin, nowadays. Liberals can’t stand anyone who loves their country. No more examples are needed. We’ve seen enough. Check out the reaction Christian actor Chris Pratt received for wearing a t-shirt that reads, “Don’t Tread On Me”… From Daily Wire: Vulture writer Hunter Harris posted the photo of Pratt in the shirt on Monday; Yahoo! picked up the “story” the next day, claiming the t-shirt featured a “controversial symbol” and showcasing online far-left critics. https://twitter.com/hunteryharris/status/1150866021147906055?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1150866021147906055&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo Reactions: https://twitter.com/timbyrnes89/status/1151121049347485696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151121049347485696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo https://twitter.com/akclarke_/status/1151129033989611520?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151129033989611520&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo Pratt constantly talks about deep faith in Christ and his relationship with the Lord. He’s also an avid hunter and pro-American patriot who calls out faux liberal outrage when he sees it, just like the rest of us. If Pratt is liberal then President Trump is humble. Neither is true. He can’t admit it for obvious reasons, but Chris Pratt is certainly conservative (or at the absolute least, right-leaning). That reason alone is exactly why TV Guide believes Chris is “problematic” to viewers. No joke. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood stars that conservatives feel actually sees the world from a similar point of view is “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt, who is willing to openly criticize aspects of liberal culture and proclaim his faith in God, while managing to never come off as self-righteous or self-serving. So, perhaps it’s no surprise that TV Guide would feel compelled to write a hit-piece on Pratt warning its readers about his “problematic life offscreen” that is sure to offend their (presumably left-wing) sensibilities, including that he once mocked “outrage culture.” https://twitter.com/TVGuide/status/1076160619831803904?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw The un-Christmas-spirited piece begins by describing Pratt’s transformation from likable TV personality to “Hollywood’s golden boy” with his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World.” But by the…
