People on the right are in stitches about this. Ben Shapiro described it as one of the biggest own goals he'd ever seen in politics. But if you want a clear indication of mainstream media bias, you can just see how many outlets took it seriously as showing Trump wrong, especially considering the person who ran the test said he didn't have enough native American samples, so used ones from Mexico, Columbia, and Peru. So Elizabeth Warren is apparently 1/64th to 1024th Columbian, or something. I'm sure Trump is chastened. Perhaps he could give Warren 1/1024th of the millennium dollars he promised her on proving her ancestry.
David French had a good article on the media bias:https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/10/elizabeth-warrens-native-american-ancestry-spin-media-fell-for-it/
I love, for example, this apparently straight-faced comment from the AP:
Edit: The Cherokee nation itself doesn't seem very impressed by Warren's antics:http://www.cherokee.org/News/Stories/20181015_Cherokee-Nation-responds-to-Senator-Warrens-DNA-test
