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:

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:

Well, Pocahontas was just re-elected last Tuesday to another 6 year term as senator from Massachusetts. Maybe old Metacomet is laughing in his grave, wherever it may be.

One of the women who went after Andrew Bolt in that frightening "hate speech" case now says she regrets her move after recognising the toxicity of identity politics:

Predictably, it seems that Pocahontas Warren's silliness has done lasting damage to her 2020 hopes:

It isn't just well justified mockery from conservatives and others that is the issue, but the intersectional idiots themselves are annoyed at her for pretending to be non-white.

Well, that may be true. But one ought never to underestimate the American public's capacity for ignorance and gullibility, and who can predict whatever whim will next  appeal to them.
