Pay Up, Donald
On July 5th (2018) at one of the Republican MOB rallies our President once again disparaged Senator Elizabeth Warren, calling her names and challenging her to provide DNA evidence of her Native American heritage. "I will give you a million dollars...to your favorite charity...paid for by Trump if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian."
Well, today 10/15/18 Senator Warren did just that and called Trump's bluff - providing a copy of the medical report containing the DNA evidence. Washington Post reported today: "The DNA analysis, by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor, concludes that “the vast majority” of Warren’s ancestry is European but that “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual’s pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago.” Senator Warren has asked the Donald to send a check to the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center. Well done, Senator!
The Donald's response? Like the lying weasel that he has proven himself to be (thousands of times) is it hardly a shock that he's denying that he said it? Yeah, right...as if that'll fly...his challenge to Warren was recorded in a rally speech...which all Americans can listen & watch...over and over...and laugh at the guy. Loudly. But now the Donald is trying to say he'll only live up to his pledge if he gets to administer the test. "I'll only do it if I can test her personally, OK?" Trump said today. No, Donald, it is not ok. A) you're not qualified to administer such a test, nor qualified to interpret the results. and B) you should have included that caveat when you disparaged a United States Senator. You lose, pay up.
And, the media should stop reporting on anything he says or does until he makes good on his pledge. Stop feeding the creep - all he wants is publicity. Stop giving to the guy! I am proposing a total news blackout until he coughs up the cash...until then, I suggest the media only run clips of previous lies and the fact-checking responses. The man lies and the media allows it...it needs to stop here & now.
(And no, for those who think this means I support Senator Warren to run for President in 2020...I do not. I think she is an awesome American, and an asset to the US Senate. 'Nuf said.)
