TRUMP'S RACIST WAY OF CALLING OUT ELIZABETH WARREN 11/28/2017 President Trump uses a ceremony honoring Native American veterans to reignite his feud with Senator Elizabeth Warren, who he derogatorily calls "Pocahontas."
The thing is that identities are made through a process called "land naming" (how one adopts a new land to their personal/family/communities mythology)) and being Native American was part of her identity/mythology. Kinda like Peter Griffin in the clip below. This is probably very normal in our society today as being Native American (a tiny bit) became a cool thing sometime after they were wiped out and their remains interned on reservations. In any case, this isn't an intentional thing that Warren did. It's just something that happens in a non-scientific world before DNA testing (such as with the GOP climate science denial etc). I expect this sort of thing to happen often in our culture.
A Case Of DNA Identity...

If Elizabeth Warren doesn't have Cherokee DNA then she has a very embarrassing situation to deal with. DNA testing to determine genetic heritage (not the same as cultural heritage) can be found at ancestry.com.
BTW, this will become an issue. GOP are nothing if not hypocrites when it comes to facts and context.
While #Gorka's political tactic against #Warren may work if she doesn't get a DNA test proving her ancestry ... it doesn't change the fact that he is an ACTUAL Nazi. just cause #Trump employed him #Hannity uses him https://t.co/lCANB89TSw #FoxNews pic.twitter.com/wzudK9cT0x— Deadpool (@DeadPoolLiberty) November 28, 2017
Of course, if Warren doesn't do a DNA test everyone (including me) will doubt her "Native American Ancestry Because Of Her High Cheekbones" (also a white people thing and black thing and asian thing and south asian thing), and she will never be President. If her DNA test comes out negative for Native American ancestry, she will never be President.
Interesting Factoid: The Trump family lied about their German heritage Donald Trump wrote in the "Art of the Deal" that his grandfather came to the United States from Sweden - when in fact he came from Germany. Duration: 2:42
BTW, I wonder if Trump's German heritage explains his obvous Nazism and Facism?
