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.”

Confirmed: Mitt Romney Used Secret Twitter Account to Defend Himself From President Trump

What in the world?

Is Mitt Romney in junior high? What kind of grown man uses a secret Twitter account? Of course, Romney probably doesn’t tweet himself but this means he had a proxy do it for him. Same difference. It would appear as if Mitt is still pretty sore from losing the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama, which he should’ve easily won. In that regard, he’s a lot like Hillary Clinton. Why the guy keeps going against President Trump in a time when the radically far-left media and Congressional Democrats won’t lay off makes little sense. But, that’s not about to trip up the Utah senator anytime soon. From Daily Wire: During an interview with The Atlantic, Romney made the revelation that he had a secret Twitter account: “That’s kind of what he does,” Romney said with a shrug, and then got up to retrieve an iPad from his desk. He explained that he uses a secret Twitter account—“What do they call me, a lurker?”—to keep tabs on the political conversation. “I won’t give you the name of it,” he said [emphasis added], but “I’m following 668 people.” Swiping at his tablet, he recited some of the accounts he follows, including journalists, late-night comedians (“What’s his name, the big redhead from Boston?”), and athletes. Trump was not among them. “He tweets so much,” Romney said, comparing the president to one of his nieces who overshares on Instagram. “I love her, but it’s like, ah, it’s too much.” Romney confirmed the fake account was his: Just spoke to @MittRomney on the phone, and asked him about Pierre Delecto. His only response: “C’est moi.” Updated my story accordingly: https://twitter.com/mckaycoppins/status/1186093210214510593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186093210214510593&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fa-total-loser-romney-mocked-after-using-secret-twitter-account-to-defend-himself-report-suggests Former conservative Bill Kristol posed a question on Twitter… Let’s see how much of a hellscape Twitter is.

‘Well-Connected’ Republican Tells Fox News Host There’s 20% Chance GOP Senate Removes Trump

Seems awfully high…

Fox News’ host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly “in the bag” for President Trump. Wallace has been against 45 for a good while now. On Sunday, he made a big announcement that many people may find unsettling. Apparently, a big-name Republican – who, of course, shall remain nameless – told Wallace that there’s a decent chance the GOP-controlled Senate could potentially move to impeach Trump. If true, why? Why would the GOP do such a silly, silly thing and give the left a win in a time when unemployment is at record lows and the economy is doing well? Here’s Chris… From Washington Examiner: Fox News host Chris Wallace said he was told by a well-known GOP source that there is a 1-in-5 chance President Trump will be removed from office if the Senate holds an impeachment trial. The figure came up during a conversation with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Fox News Sunday as the two discussed the controversies the Trump administration faces related to Ukraine and Syria. Wallace said, “I talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington this week, somebody whose name you would know well, who says that if the House votes to impeach and it gets to a trial in the Senate, there is now a 20% chance he believes — obviously, it’s just an estimate — now a 20% chance enough Republicans will vote with the Democrats to remove the president.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4Zjtcml7lU BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F WATCH: Nancy Pelosi compares Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution War https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1184922572246274048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184922572246274048&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F10%2F17%2Fcome-on-nancy-pelosi-compares-dems-impeachment-threats-to-the-american-revolution%2F Reaction: The revolutionary war was fought…
