There is no doubt about it – Elizabeth Warren’s “DNA stunt” was an epic disaster.
It’s a virtual PR nightmare and could end her hopes of ever running for president.
She not only proved that she is not “Cherokee Indian,” but she proved the stories she told about her parent’s wedding were a lie as well.

Now, the decedent of Pocahontas herself is calling on Elizabeth Warren to apologize for her lies.
A direct descendant of Pocahontas, the famed 17th-century Powhatan princess, is calling on Sen. Elizabeth Warren to apologize for wrongly claiming to be Native America — just for political gain.
Debbie White Dove Porreco, appearing on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Tuesday, derided the Massachusetts Democrat after Warren released results of a DNA test that showed she had between 1.5% and .09% Native American blood.
“It did prove that she wasn’t the Cherokee Indian that she was claiming to be for so long,” Porreco said. “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.”
Warren benefited from the false claim both personally and professionally. She listed herself as Native in the Association of American Law School Directory, and according to The Boston Globe, she “had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and at Harvard University Law School, where she was a tenured faculty member starting in 1995.”
Some critics say she got the Harvard slot by claiming to be American Indian. “Harvard Law School in the 1990s touted Warren, then a professor in Cambridge, as being Native American,’” CNN reported last November. “They singled her out, Warren later acknowledged, because she had listed herself as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory.”
A 1997 Fordham Law Review article identified the Democrat as Harvard Law’s “first woman of color.” Warren even submitted recipes to an American Indian cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow,” which was released in 1984 by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She signed her entries “Elizabeth Warren — Cherokee.”
In a statement, Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin, Jr. said on Tuesday that Warren’s DNA test, “dishonors legitimate tribal governments and citizens whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
