Trump: Warren DNA Test Reveals She is a Fraud

He’s absolutely right, and where is the outraged coverage in the media about what Warren did in releasing her DNA test?

Let’s imagine at one point that Trump claimed to be Native American, as Elizabeth Warren has. And then he decided to release a test showing that if he is, he’s probably around 1/256th Native American. Imagine the ridicule in the press, that he thinks that just because his toenail is Native American, then he is.

And imagine how he would be called an idiot for even release such a test, which, actually proves that you are NOT Native American.

It’s like calling a beef stew a carrot because that’s one of the ingredients.

No, Trump Does Not Need to Give $1 million to Elizabeth Warren’s Favorite Charity

Elizabeth Warren today is touting a DNA test that indicates she is at best, 1/64th Native American, and more likely about 1/256th Native American, to justify the misleading claims she made earlier in her career to list herself as a Native American in a directory of law professors.

The test indicates that she has a Native American ancestor going back six to ten generations. If that’s enough to claim you’re of Native American heritage and that it’s introduced high cheekbones into your family, then I’m a Martian.

I’m serious. There’s Martian blood in me from way back in the 1700s during the Martian landing it what is now Gdansk, Poland.

I guess that explains a lot about me.

Unfortunately, there is no minority set-aside for people whose ancestors emigrated from Mars, but I’m working on it.

Anyway, Warren now claims Trump owes a million dollars to her favorite charity. He did say something about this, during remarks in July, but he was very specific about the circumstances:

I shouldn’t tell you because I like to not give away secrets,” Trump said. “But let’s say I’m debating Pocahontas. I promise you I’ll do this: I will take, you know those little kits they sell on television . . .  learn your heritage . . .

And in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims that she is of Indian heritage because her mother said she has high cheekbones, that is her only evidence, her mother said we have high cheekbones.

We will take that little kit — but we have to do it gently. Because we’re in the #MeToo generation, we have to do it gently. And we will very gently take that kit, and slowly toss it, hoping it doesn’t injure her arm, and we will say: I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.

So, she has to take the test during a debate. Trump is careful about the contracts he enters into . . . In the context in which he offered it, it’s clear Trump is being facetious.

UPDATE: Here’s a comment from Trump Monday afternoon:

Hillary Clinton: Bill’s Affair With Monica Lewinsky Was Not an abuse of Power

You almost have to feel sorry for Hillary Clinton. Not only did she lose two presidential elections she was supposed to win, but she’s now on the wrong side of the #MeToo movement, and even her place as a pioneer for women in politics is in jeopardy.

That’s because her husband is a serial abuser of women, and possibly even a rapist, and she’s enabled him and stood by him the whole time.

Sunday, she told CBS that he didn’t abuse his power during his affair with Monica Lewinsky, saying she “was an adult.”

What she was, was a 22-year-old intern when Bill Clinton began an affair with her. He was 49. Any corporate executive that did this would have immediately been fired and would never have been able to get another similar job, even before the #MeToo movement.

Monica Lewinsky is spending the rest of her life being “Monica Lewinsky.” She has never married and is childless. One wonders what her life would have been like if Bill hadn’t stepped into it.

It’s nice to see a journalist ask about this. But he’s not so brave, because now she’s even disliked by the Left. Where were questions like these during the campaign?

Hillary lives in an alternate universe. She has to, because it would be much too painful for her to live in the one the rest of us do.

Outtakes From Trump’s Lively 60 Minutes Interview with Lesley Stahl

I thought there were so many interesting moments in President Trump’s interview with Lesley Stahl that I’d just put a few down and let you draw your own conclusions.

Stahl is a liberal reporter but not a typical modern liberal reporter, in that while her bias shows, she’s relatively fair and doesn’t approach her interaction with Trump as if he’s the reincarnation of Hitler.

Here are a few of the best moments.

On his doubts about the claims related to man-made climate change. She obviously has an agenda here, informing him he should go to Greenland to watch the ice crumbling.

On his relationship with North Korean President Kim Jong-un. He tries to indicate that he’s playing Kim for the benefit of the United States, but she doesn’t seem to get it.

On politics and the media.

On his criticism of Christine Blasey Ford.

I thought you might also want to take a look at this post-mortem by Stahl on the interview.

One of her more interesting comments is how she thinks he had gained confidence and grown into the idea of being president compared to the time she interviewed him three days after he had been elected: “Right now, he’s He is truly president, and you felt it – I felt it in this interview,” she said.

See? Few other liberal reporters would let an honest, objective truth that is positive about Trump get in the way of their bias.
