Pass the popcorn: Mass. newspaper calls on Elizabeth Warren to take a DNA test

As. IF.

A left-leaning Massachusetts newspaper (are there any other kind?) has called on Senator Elizabeth “Dances With Identity Fraud” Warren to take a DNA test. The paper’s conclusion for what Warren could gain if the test were to come back negative is comedy gold:

For these reasons, those who wish her ill will never allow the Native American question to recede; Sen. Warren’s potential appeal as a national candidate constitutes too much of a threat. Therefore, we offer a simple suggestion that could not even have been contemplated when Warren first listed her heritage on an employment form.

The same technology that can match a perpetrator to a crime with virtually 100 percent certainty could settle the question of her heritage for all time.

There are now so many commercial DNA heritage-tracking labs in business that they advertise on television. The going rate for one of the most popular tests is $99. All the senator needs to do is spit into a tube, wait a few weeks and get her answer. No matter if the test came up negative or positive, it would constitute a plus for Warren and her political hopes.

Were she to test positive for Native American DNA, it would permanently resolve the issue — while possibly shutting down President Trump.

Should the test come up negative, it would be an opportunity for the senator to perform an act rarely seen among politicians: an admission of her error and a full-throated apology to Native American tribes and anyone else offended by her spurious claim. By facing the truth and taking responsibility for it, she would disarm her enemies and show potential voters that she was human and capable of mistakes, just like them. Handled properly, it could become a testimonial to her integrity and truthfulness at a time when that quality is in short supply among the nation’s leadership.

HAHAHA! Opportunity for an “admission of her error”? Warren’s already called Trump a racist for calling her “Pocahontas” so no, she’s made a conscious decision to ride this particular lie all the way to 2020. Only a card-carrying liberal could consider exposing yourself for pushing a lie for many years as “a testimonial to integrity and truthfulness.”
