Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been the talk of the town this week after she released her DNA test results that were supposedly going to prove that she had Native American ancestry, however, it seems they had the opposite effect.

In fact, ever since the results were published, she’s been mocked by folks across the country and even had a letter released by the Cherokee Nation denouncing her for trying to claim Native American heritage when it seems pretty likely she doesn’t have any at all.

And it’s not only the right getting in on the action. Folks on the left, including an anchor over at MSNBC are getting in on the mockery as well.

While most of the mainstream media worked overtime to spin for Warren, an MSNBC anchor wasn’t able to keep up with the cover-up. Mocking Warren’s self-own, MSNBC’s Craig Melvin quipped that he’s likely “just as Native American as she is.”

“Did she gain anything by putting out the DNA test results?” Melvin asked Boston Globe reporter Annie Linskey. “Best I can gather, according to your paper’s reporting, she’s 1/1,000th, something like that.”

“I think I might be just as Native Amerian as she is,” said Melvin.

Even Linskey conceded that Warren was going “pretty far back” to corroborate her Native claims. (Warren is on video claiming her mother is part-Cherokee and part-Delaware.)

“She has a native American ancestor who was somewhere between ten and six generations back in her family,” Linskey said. “So that’s going pretty far back. I don’t know who my great-great-great-great grandmother or grandfather is.”

Rebecca Nagle, a prominent liberal political activist and Native American recently penned a piece for the Huffington Post slamming Warren over this DNA debacle, more or less making the point that she needs to drop this nonsense.

When the Cherokee Nation and other Native Americans in the country come out against you and the results themselves don’t back up your claim, it’s time to move on. If she is really serious about running for president in 2020, perhaps Warren ought to spend her time developing a platform to win hearts and minds over to her agenda.
