Folks, we are living in a time that many of us maybe never thought they’d see, where our political circus has devolved into some sort of television-bred bastard child of professional wrestling and Shark Tank.
Now the left wants us to believe that this atmosphere of utter nonsense is somehow Donald Trump’s fault, as though his career as a successful, albeit boastful, businessman was somehow seeping into American politics. Forget it! Primetime T.V. was never a match for the dramatic power of the U.S. Senate, or any good scandal that someone can pin onto a president.
Heck, some of these sagas played out just like the sordid soap operas that our Great Aunts won’t admit to actually watching. Adulterous FBI agents, bombshell Russian lawyers, spies(!) for Pete’s sake! The whole thing could very well be too much to handle at times, but we persevere because, after all, it is our job to make sure these public servants do as they are told.
The latest trip into absurdity has come to us from the President himself, who has finally had it with Senator Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native American heritage, and has offered the probable 2020 democratic hopeful one million dollars to take a DNA test.
Warren has now responded:
In response, Warren hit Trump for “obsessing” over her genes and cited reports that the administration is using DNA tests to check claims of illegal immigrants that minors are actually their children after a number of migrants made false claims of parentage in hopes of getting asylum.
“Hey, @realDonaldTrump: While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order. Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you’re destroying,” tweeted Warren.
So, I guess we’re going to take that as a “no”, then?
And, remind us, how did this whole thing get started again?
The “Pocahontas”/”Fauxcahontas” criticism began years ago when accusations of Warren’s alleged use of her “Native American heritage” to get ahead in academia first surfaced. Warren has repeatedly attempted to defend her claim, but has received pushback from Native Americans and fact-checkers, who say she is at best 1/32 Cherokee, if that.
It turns out that Elizabeth Warren is not learning from the DNC playbook, which was amended after the 2016 election to reflect a new #1 rule: Don’t try to derail the Trump Train.
