Re: Trump reneges

Albaby, clearly, to many of us it seems as if you are defending Trump's scummy lie on a literal excuse, divorced from the context of her claim.

I'm not defending his lie. The premise of his offer was false - both in [more]

Re: Trump reneges

The Pocahontas = Warren meme is already propagated. The problem is that the current variation is a negative one (Trump is imposing the label on Warren). I'm suggesting propagating a positive variant (Warren is embracing the label). [more]

Re: Trump reneges

The whole point of a DNA test is to show ancestry. Warren did show her ancestry was Native American (Indian).

Did she? She showed that she had at least one distant Native American ancestor - is that the same as showing that her [more]

Re: Trump reneges

Trump is such a cheap jerk. He loudly promised that he would pay Warren a million dollars to take a DNA test to prove she had a Native American ancestor.

No, he didn't. He promised that he would pay a million dollars if she took [more]

Re: Trump reneges

But it can't be undone, so what to do now? I think she has to own it. It's the only way. Don't make it a campaign point (Trump will likely do that for her anyway). But keep it light, referring to being proud of that ancestry without [more]

Re: Trump reneges

Don't claim tribal citizenship, or even a right to such citizenship, but "I'm proud to have that as part of my ancestry...Native Americans are a proud and noble people". Stuff like that.

That's fine. She has to [more]

Re: Trump reneges

If I found I had 1/5,000 Native American genetics I wouldn't keep it a secret. And if you called me Pocahontas for doing so I would call you an idiot. People respect stuff like that as being an honest reaction to a sophomoric insult. Warren [more]

Re: Trump reneges

I think Trump used Pocahontas because he sees any association with American Indians as being demeaning.

I think that's part of it, but not all of it. He also uses it to mock her for what he characterizes as pretensions to Native [more]

Re: Trump reneges

Hate to be cynical but for much of America, repetition = truth. Hence my attempt to create a new meme:

Pocahontas 1, Trump 0.


Warren loses if she lets Trump define her with the label "Pocahontas." I would suggest a [more]

Re: Trump reneges

Trump and his defenders can take a big big bow for their accomplishment.

I don't think they deserve any credit - this was entirely an 'own-goal' by Warren. As you said, his 'wager' had little to do with what Warren [more]

Do you have a link to the form? AFAIK, she only claimed distant lineage.

She claimed enough that the institutions she was employed by held her out as a minority employee, over the course of nearly a decade. I am sure that her choice [more]

She's more Native American than I am, and I'm a white American. To my knowledge I have zero Native blood. Not a single ancestor. I would almost certainly know about it if I did since it wasn't that many generations ago that my [more]

If you actually thought this (Trump/Poch/DNA rebuttal) was her opening salvo, you are absorbing too much (admittedly loudest) idiotically "reality show/entertainment" focused news sources.

She proved what she claimed. She has Native American lineage.

Re: Trump reneges

She can still use it to needle him pretty much forever. "By the way, where's my $1M?"

And he'll needle her back, asking why he should pay when the test proved that she's no more an Indian than any other white [more]

Therefore he can only require that she prove what she indicated.

Re: Trump reneges

A bit of amateur hour for her campaign staff.

I agree wholeheartedly. They seem to have completely missed how this would land. Not a great opening salvo in the shadow primary.

Trump did not say what percentage.

If Warren has Native American dna markers, Trump's a loser.
