President Donald Trump has repeatedly referred to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as “Pocahontas”, poking fun at her claim to have Native American ancestry.
But now that the senator has put forth a DNA test substantiating her claim, Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, hinted that Trump might keep using the racist nickname anyway, indicating the test might have been nothing more than “junk science”.
> The Boston Globe on Monday released the results of DNA test performed by a Stanford University professor. The test found that Warren likely had Native American ancestors in her family 6 to 10 generations ago.
> “I haven’t looked at the test,” Conway told CNN’s Abby Phillip. “I know that everybody likes to pick their junk science or sound science depending on the conclusion it seems some days.”
> “But I haven’t looked at the DNA test and it really doesn’t interest me,” she added.
