Warren claimed that she would not "sit quietly for @realDonaldTrump's racism, so I took a test".
And even as his inner turmoil is partially soothed by the names and lineages he comes across, he's careful to say that many of his conclusions - about what parts of Africa his ancestors came from, or whether he's descended from Spanish Moors - can never be fully proved.
Earlier this week, Warren released the results of a DNA test which shows she likely had a Native American ancestor six to 10 generations back. What is the impact other than to alienate Native Americans who do not accept her claim?
On Wednesday, Warren told The Boston Globe that she wishes she had been more careful to distinguish between her claims about her family tree and the notion that she might belong to an actual tribe. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) DNA ancestry as vindication for the Democratic Party and a loss for President Trump.
As James Freeman writes in the Wall Street Journal, the report shows that it's possible that Sen. Warren's supporters were thrilled in 2016 when, despite her courtly professorial demeanor, she sounded willing to give as good as she got in her back-and-forth with Trump's smash mouth approach to politics. Elizabeth Warren has a new critic of her widely-panned DNA test: an actual descendant of Pocahontas. She has long claimed Native heritage - she changed her ethnicity from white to Native American during her time as a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Bustamante admittedly had to make some major leaps to arrive at his conclusions: namely, there is insufficient Native American DNA to perform a full analysis, so Bustamante instead searched for DNA from Mexican, Colombian, and Peruvian sources.
In a society where people of color are making strides in economic mobility and social advancement, we do not need Elizabeth Warren cloaking herself as a minority to promote faux victimization. Cherokee Nation officials have said the tribe does not use DNA tests to establish membership, and that the claim cheapens the identities of tribal members with deeper ties to their Indian past.

AFM in 22 states: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Health officials in Oklahoma say an Oklahoma child has been diagnosed with a polio-like illness that is sweeping the country. People can protect themselves from contracting AFM using methods similar to preventing getting the flu, Ellerin said.
"Of course, given the popularity of Trump's "Pocahontas" line on the right, there were already indications Monday that the president and his allies would not be assuaged by any efforts verifying Warren's claim to some Native American ancestry". In his own statement, the secretary of state for the Cherokee Nation said Ms. Warren's use of DNA undermines tribal governments, which are in constant battle with the United States for sovereignty.
My great-grandmother was half Creek, the daughter of a slave and a Native American who owned a plantation along the Chattahoochee River in Heard County, Ga. In her quest to prove her minority status in today's America, Warren exploited one of white supremacy's most painful legacies to her advantage.
Warren released the DNA test widely Monday - suggesting as much as 1/64 of her DNA was from a Native American population - along with a folksy campaign video that retold a vague family story about a Native American on her mother's side.
"I feel betrayed because she wasn't".
"I'm going to take a DNA test", he told "Fox and Friends" Tuesday. If anybody has lost moral authority to call anyone else a liar, it is Trump, whose falsehoods chronicled by The Washington Post's Fact-Checker column run into the thousands.
As Warren has defended the test, she also has attempted to clarify the remarks she made during law school. Her Native American ancestry is so distant, it turns out, that her closest Native American ancestor might actually have been Pocahontas. "I respect the distinction, & don't list myself as Native in the Senate". Like many a politician before her, she seems to think that if she keeps defending herself from ridicule, the charge will go away. "I'm glad to see it, because what she needs to do is come out and apologize to all of us".
