Who cares?

So Elizabeth Warren has called Trump’s bluff.

In a rather unusual campaign move, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has released the results of a DNA test that she says provides “strong evidence” of Native American ancestry dating back six to 10 generations, addressing a controversy that has followed her for years.

At a rally in Montana this past July, Trump taunted Warren for her claims of Native American ancestry, calling her “Pocahontas.” He suggested that if he were to debate her in 2020, he would give her one of those take-home DNA kits “they sell on television for $2.”

“Trump taunted Warren” is putting it very mildly. The obnoxious, childish, bullying grossness of his performance is nausea-inducing. NPR helpfully included the clip.

“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,” Trump added, as the crowd cheered. But on Monday morning, the president was asked about the challenge and falsely told reporters, “I didn’t say that.”

That is to say, he lied to reporters.
