After a bizarre, early-presidential ploy by presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren involving a DNA test, the online headline over the New York Times story spun mightily on her behalf: “Elizabeth Warren’s DNA Results Put Trump on Defensive, but Also Raise Questions,” by Jonathan Martin. Martin tried to link Trump’s anti-Warren “Pocahontas” jibe to the tawdry “birther” issue, though in this case Trump’s mockery is based in fact.
After a day of trying to keep it under wraps, even the liberal networks showered mockery on Elizabeth Warren’s disastrous attempt to prove Native American heritage. ABC, CBS and NBC on Tuesday questioned her strategy, featured outrage from actual Native Americans, and openly laughed at her unofficial presidential rollout.
Tuesday morning on CNN's New Day, liberal historian Doris Kearns Goodwin admits that President Trump has "made a connection" with his base, and that "he's made them feel that he's on their side."
If you’ve ever known someone with cancer, you probably remember pouring out your support after his or her diagnosis. Was politics on your mind as you put your pen to a sympathy card or picked up the phone to wish the person well? Probably not - you wanted your loved one to be the center of attention.
The genetic tests are in and have determined the strong percentage of Senator Elizabeth Warren's American Indian ancestry. Now none can dare question her heritage which has finally been firmly established. The problem, however, is that Warren might have less American Indian blood in her than the percentage of Sherpa ancestry of the average resident of Idaho.
The October 15 Boston Globe makes an attempt in "Warren releases results of DNA test" to establish the American Indian bonafides of the Massachusetts senator but ultimately the most Indian thing about her might be the name of the state she represents.
What was supposed to be a rebuke of President Trump’s ridicule ended up drawing more laughs from most and scorn from others. In an overly dramatized campaign video out Monday, Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) released the results of a DNA test that suggested she did have a Native American ancestor. The catch? It’s possible she was only 1/1,024th Native American. Despite that fact, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) promoted her campaign message and portrayed her as the victor.
Talk about a red herring and case of whataboutism. On Monday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews tag-teamed with Democratic strategist Steve McMahon and The Washington Post’s Ashley Parker to downplay the fiasco concerning Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s razor-thin Native American heritage by invoking President Trump’s tax returns.
On Ari Melber's MSNBC show Monday night, Mara Gay of the NYT editorial board misrepresents President Trump's mocking of Elizabeth Warren's phony claim to be a Native American. Gay says it was "was actually about white anxieties among Donald Trump's base about who's white in America." In fact, Trump was calling out Warren's cheating: using the phony claim of being a Native American to get ahead in academia.
Most people assume that minority comedians will take any opportunity they can to bash President Trump. So it came as a surprise when Dave Chappelle shared some optimism for Donald Trump’s fledgling presidency on a 2016 episode of Saturday Night Live. Newsweek reminded its readers of those words on Oct 13th: “I looked around that room and saw all those black faces … and it made me proud to be an American … So, in that spirit, I’m wishing Donald Trump luck. And I’m going to give him a chance. And we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one too.”
Poor Alec Baldwin. The liberal actor and activist is trapped in a role that won’t let him go. Every time he decides he’s had enough of imitating President Trump on NBC’s Saturday Night Live program, people tell him he must continue because “we need you.” Baldwin, who won an Emmy Award for his impersonation, now claims at least one other benefit from his ongoing role: “Ever since I played Trump, black people love me. They love me. Everywhere I go, black people go crazy.”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough explains Nikki Haley's resignation as UN Ambassador by suggesting she is positioning herself for a 2020 presidential run, on the theory that, as Scarborough predicted back in August, President Trump won't seek re-election. Scarborough surmises that Haley wants to get out in front of Mike Pence.
Thank you for taking the time to read this latest installment of the Snoop Dogg vs. Kanye West political drama. First, there was West’s short, unaired political monologue that he gave after the end credits of Saturday Night Live’s season premiere had rolled. While the Trump-supporting rapper devoted a bit of time to criticizing Democratic policies, the majority of his words were an exhortation to his fellow celebrities and citizens to “try love,” or to be kind to those they don’t agree with.
