After Massachusetts senator released DNA results with ‘strong evidence’ of Native American ancestry, co-hosts piled on POTUS for ‘Pocahontas’ jabs
ABC News’ “The View”co-hosts lavished praise on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and predictably bashed President Donald Trump for his “Pocahontas” jabs after Warren released DNA results showing “strong evidence”that she has anything from one-32nd to one-1,024th Native American ancestry.
“Well, the DNA results are in,”co-host Joy Behar (pictured above left) said to cheers and applause. “And [Warren] is — she’s actually about one-32nd Native American. Does that mean that she — they can stop with the Pocahontas taunts? The taunts? [Trump] loves that.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin (above center) lamented, “I think it’s unfortunate that she had to submit to a DNA test because, if you think about it, he’s been taunting her with this Pocahontas stuff.”
Confusion about Warren’s ancestry didn’t end with the DNA results. The Boston Globe had to correct its original estimation of the least amount of Native American blood Warren had — from one-512th to one-1,024th. The most amount she could possess remained at one-32nd.
“Trump hasn’t turned over his taxes,” Hostin complained. “He hasn’t turned over anything.”
Behar replied, “And he never will.”
Trump has long mocked Warren as “Pocahontas,”pointing to the controversy that arose in 2012 during her first Senate campaign. The Boston Herald exposed her Association of American Law Schools entries in which she listed herself as a Native American from 1986 to 1995. When she worked for Harvard University Law School, she was listed as a minority professor.
Although Warren initially denied knowledge of Harvard’s minority label, she later admitted she listed herself as Native American in the law school directory in order to meet other Native Americans.

According to the New York Times, the average white person in America has nearly double the amount of American Indian DNA (0.18%) as Elizabeth Warren (0.098%), who claims to be Cherokee. Can't argue with science. https://t.co/pfk3xFdln3 pic.twitter.com/LhBd983OXT
