President Donald Trump said on Fox News Monday evening that you would have to ask Elizabeth Warren’s psychiatrist to figure out if Warren really believes she has a chance of winning the 2020 presidential election.
Warren, who ducked the Native American-themed question at her first press conference since announcing her exploratory committee, probably does not realize exactly what she is going up against. What she is going up against is an unpredictable, unstoppable force on the campaign trail: President Donald Trump.
Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat who claimed to be a Native American to gain Ivy League law school teaching jobs that could have gone to minorities, is embarking on a Trail of Tears toward the 2020 presidential election.
Warren announced her new exploratory committee to seek the presidency against other Democrats and possibly President Donald Trump in the upcoming election.
Warren’s launch video rails against “billionaires” who have corrupted our democratic process without delving into the extent of her relationship with George Soros’ family.
A 2017 Liz Warren New York Times feature detailed:
“I think Senator Warren’s views are more pragmatic; I think she is very different in a conversation than when she’s on the stump,” said Robert Wolf, the former UBS executive who hosted Ms. Warren and other Senate Democrats for a fund-raiser on Martha’s Vineyard this summer.
The Times also reported that Warren convened a private meeting with top brass at JPMorgan Chase:
“Maybe even more striking than invoking Scripture, the scourge of Wall Street is spending some time with bankers: She attended a party fund-raiser in July at the summer residence of a former UBS executive, and earlier this summer she met privately in Washington with JPMorgan Chase’s chief executive, Jamie Dimon.”

The Washington Examiner confirmed: “I’m not a person of color. And I haven’t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin,” Warren said at Morgan State, a historically black college in Baltimore, Md, according to the Washington Post.

Rush Limbaugh fielded a call from a woman named Susan who is one-sixteenth Cherokee, and who eloquently explained why Elizabeth Warren is not a Cherokee. (READ: Cherokee Nation Officially Rejects Warren: ‘Dishonoring Tribal Governments’).
Warren made a video with a Stanford genome researcher to promote a DNA test that stated it is possible that Warren might have a very small fraction of Cherokee ancestry — much smaller than is required for tribal membership, and a bit more than half of what the normal white American possesses according to the New York Times.
Here is the Rush Limbaugh transcript of Rush’s enlightening phone call with a 1/16
RUSH: Spring, Texas. This is Susan. It’s great to have you with us.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I am a transplanted Texan. I’m Sooner born, Sooner bred, and when I die, I’m Sooner dead. My great-great grandmother was a full blood Cherokee, and I’m calling via Barbra Streisand —
RUSH: Wait, wait. When you say you are Sooner born and bred, you are from Oklahoma?
RUSH: I just — but you say Sooner born and bred, people in Rio Linda think you’re saying that you’d just as soon be born than dead.
CALLER: No. I am a proud Oklahoman, and I love Texas, too, but my beginning was in Oklahoma. Fauxcahontas says her great-great grandmother was a Cherokee? Well, so was mine. We have, you know, family history, but I’m one-sixteenth Cherokee.
RUSH: Let me ask you a question. You’re one-sixteenth; so you are considered…? That’s a lot. You’re considered —
CALLER: That’s a lot.
RUSH: You’re considered Cherokee; right? So she is…? Her great-great-great… Three times. Great-great-great-grandmother, and she’s 1/1,024th, is she enough to become a Cherokee, to —
CALLER: No! I’m not —
RUSH: — become a member of the tribe?
CALLER: No. And this is the deal, Rush. My grandfather was one quarter. It was his grandmother. My mother was one-eighth. I am one-sixteenth. But if you are not on the Cherokee rolls, then the only tribe in Oklahoma that doesn’t do then. If you don’t… If you’re not on the rolls, and it was shameful.
RUSH: So what do you think she’s doing? What’s she doing with this, Susan?
CALLER: It’s Barbra Streisand, Rush. I’m a 16th. I’m 64 years old almost, in a few weeks. If she were… But it doesn’t matter if your mother or your grandmother or great-grandmother didn’t… The Cherokee are the only tribe in Oklahoma; you had to sign the rolls. And it was shameful for an Indian woman to marry a white man, and they wouldn’t sign up. It was shameful.
RUSH: What about the high cheekbones business? Is that —
CALLER: That’s baloney! I am one-sixteenth, Rush, and I can’t be a Cherokee, and I didn’t want enough their benefits. I was just kind of proud of it. But if your name is not on the roll, you are not a Cherokee —
RUSH: Well, it just goes to show… I mean, here you are one-sixteenth and you’re not eligible, is what you’re saying, if I’m hearing you right. She’s one of 1/1,024th. It’s all about the identity politics with those people. She wants that to say something significant about her. What would that be? I mean, it’s all silly, and these people denying that she used this for employment. I think that’s the sole reason she did it, to be able to demonstrate she had some minority blood to qualify her to be hired at Harvard.
A recently resurfaced article written by a prominent genealogist explains how Europeans and Americans who have trace amounts of Native American DNA could have Asian ancestors.
In a thorough 2014 article on her website DNA Explained, genealogist Roberta Estes explains that through ancient migrations and more recent Asian invasions of Europe, many North Americans and Europeans who take popular DNA tests may register trace amounts of Native American DNA due to common genes between the two long separated populations.
Estes explains that the Huns arrived in Europe and conquered great swaths of it in starting in 370 AD. They were eventually followed to Europe from Asia by the Maygars in the 800s and 900s, another Asian population that would eventually settle in modern day Hungary.
Much earlier in history, it is widely accepted by experts that most Native American populations came to North America through three ancient migrations from Asia and Eastern Europe.
She explained that a hypothetical person of Hungarian or German descent could be a good candidate for this occurrence.
“Since both the Hungarians and some Germanic people descend from Asian populations, as do Native Americans,” she wrote, “It’s not unrealistic to expect that, as populations, they share a genetic connection.”
After running tests on her hypothetical half German, half Hungarian candidate, Estes received results suggesting that the person could be as much as 0.27 per cent Native American according to at least one publicly available DNA test, in genes Estes says would likely have belonged to a Hunnic or Maygar ancestor.
Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s controversial DNA test suggests she may only be 1/1024, or 0.097 per cent, Native American.
In other words, Sen. Warren may have less theoretically Native American DNA than the hypothetical half Hungarian, half German man from Europe in Estes’ article, and that DNA could have originated in Asia, not North America.’
