President Donald Trump took questions from reporters while in Georgia this afternoon surveying the damage from Hurricane Michael. And he was asked again for his reaction to Elizabeth Warren––whom he has insulted as “Pocahontas” multiple times––releasing her DNA test today. One reporter asked the President if he owes her an apology. Trump responded, “She oowes the country an apology. What’s the percentage? 1/1000?” Trump was also asked about the money he offered to Warren to prove Native American heritage and he said this: “You mean, if she gets the nomination, in a debate, where I was gonna have her tested? I’ll only do it if I can test her personally, okay? That will not be something I enjoy doing either.” You can watch above, via Fox News. [image via screengrab] Have a tip we should know?

Aww, Donald Trump is so cute when he shows how little he knows about contract law. It seems that in his zeal to out-snark Elizabeth Warren, he stumbled his way into the wrong side of a hypothetical for a 1L Contracts exam. In July at a rally in Montana, Trump said that if he faced Warren in the 2020 election, he would publicly demand she take a DNA test while on television at a presidential debate. He continued, saying, “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.” Warren, who has not yet announced a bid for the White House, tweeted Monday that she’d take Trump up on his generous offer: Those of us who went to law school learned early that one should be careful when one makes offers publicly. In fact, Trump’s grand promise to pay $1 million to charity in exchange for Senator Warren’s DNA test fits the textbook definition of an “offer to enter into a … [Read more...] about Trump May Be on the Hook Legally to Pay Elizabeth Warren Over DNA Test
By Washington Post | PUBLISHED: October 15, 2018 at 5:32 am | UPDATED: October 15, 2018 at 9:19 am By John Wagner | The Washington Post Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who is gearing up for a potential 2020 presidential bid, has released a DNA test that suggests she has a distant Native American ancestor, part of an extraordinary effort to discredit President Trump and others who have questioned her claims about her heritage. A report distributed by Warren concludes that there is “strong evidence” that the senator had a Native American in her family tree dating back six to 10 generations. The test results, after first being reported by the Boston Globe, were widely distributed to reporters Monday morning by Warren’s Senate campaign committee, along with a video on her upbringing and a link to a new “fact squad” website that seeks to debunk critics of her heritage. The DNA analysis, by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor, concludes … [Read more...] about Stanford professor, DNA expert says Elizabeth Warren has Native American ancestry
President Donald Trump spoke to reporters briefly outside the White House on Monday as he prepared to depart for Florida to view the hurricane damage, and among several questions, was asked about Sen. Elizabeth Warren revealing the results of a DNA test showing some Native American heritage in her family tree. Trump, who refers to Warren as “Pocahontas” and seemed to previously offer a million dollars to charity if she were to prove that lineage via DNA test, when asked about it said, “who cares?” A reporter asked him if he had any reaction to “Senator Elizabeth Warren releasing the results of her DNA test”, and as the reporter spoke, Trump jumped in to say “no, I don’t — who cares?” The reporter then began a follow-up, saying “Mr. President you said you’d offer one million dollars to charity if she–” After a question about Saudi Arabia, he was asked about Warren running for president. “I hope … [Read more...] about Trump Denies Million Dollar Charity Offer for Elizabeth Warren DNA Test: ‘I Didn’t Say That’
Senator Elizabeth Warren has been derided by President Donald Trump and his conservative media lackeys over allegations that she claimed Native American heritage to help her career. Today she fought back on that by releasing a short campaign-style film that documents her familial and ancestry heritage and shows results of a DNA test that confirms she has Native American ancestry. In a campaign rally last summer, Trump notably ridiculed Warren’s claim and suggested that if she were to prove her Native American ancestry with a DNA test, he would donate $1 million to her favorite charity. The political rally was held in Montana in early July and the Commander in Chief foretold a potential political debate between him and future presidential candidate Warren, then mocked the #MeToo movement by suggesting he’d carefully toss a $2 DNA test kit to the senator if she were to agree to take it. Trump then said, “And we will say, ‘I will give you $1 million to your … [Read more...] about Now That Elizabeth Warren Took a DNA Test, Does Trump Owe $1 Million to Charity?
