Elizabeth Warren to Trump: Pay Up on $1 Million DNA Pledge

Elizabeth Warren to Trump: Pay Up on $1 Million DNA Pledge, by Emily Kopp.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is asking Donald Trump to make good on a $1 million bet, but Trump’s memory of the bet is fuzzy.

Trump promised to donate $1 million to the charity of Warren’s choice if she released the results of a genetic test that proved Native American heritage. Trump has claimed Warren used a false story of Native American heritage to further her career as a professor at Harvard Law. …

Trump, who often refers to Warren as “Pocahontas,” denied he made the bet in a gaggle with reporters Monday.

But Trump made headlines at a rally in July for this taunt: “I’m going to get one of those little kits and in the middle of the debate when she proclaims she’s of Indian heritage because her mother said she has high cheekbones.”

“We will take that little kit and say — and we have to do it gently because we’re in the Me Too generation, so we have to be very gentle — and we will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn’t hit her and injure her arm even though it probably only weighs two ounces,” Trump continued. “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.”

The record seems to show that Trump made the bet, but he has to administer the DNA test in a presidential debate.

Only the left’s racism by affirmative action makes dubious claims of ancestry worthwhile. In a color blind society, no one would bother.
