Warren's "Forked Tongue"

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 17, 2018

         MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATIC SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN SAYS A DNA TEST PROVES SHE HAS INDIAN BLOOD IN HER. IN FACT, HER SO-CALLED INDIAN BLOOD IS LESS THAN THE IRISH BLOOD I HAVE IN ME, WHICH I PROVED THROUGH A DNA TEST OF MY OWN SOME YEARS AGO. BUT I NEVER USED MY IRISH HERITAGE,SMALL AS IT IS, TO GAIN MINORITY STATUS IN ORDER= TO ATTAIN ADMISSION TO A PRESTIGE UNIVERSITY.

         THE CHEROKEE NATION HAS DENOUNCED WARREN’S ATTEMPT TO USE HER INFINITESIMAL INDIAN DNA FOR POLITICAL ADVANTAGE, BUT WARREN IS CLAIMING VINDICATION AND DEMANDING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP PAY-UP. SHE SAYS THE PRESIDENT PROMISED TO PAY $1 MILLION TO WARREN’S FAVORITE CHARITY IF SHE COULD PROVE INDIAN HERITAGE. HE SAYS HE NEVER MADE SUCH A PROMISE.

         ALL POLITICIANS LIE OR BEND THE TRUTH AT SOME POINT IN THEIR CAREERS, BUT FEW LIE AS WARREN HAS TO GAIN PERSONAL ADVANTAGE. THAT’S THE REAL ISSUE AND IF SHE RUNS FOR PRESIDENT, AS EXPECTED IN 2020, IT SHOULD BE PART OF HER CHARACTER TEST. THESE DAYS, THOUGH, CHARACTER SEEMS LESS IMPORTANT TO VOTERS THAN IT ONCE WAS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
