Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both hit President Trump and defend herself.
In her first tweet Warren made the claim that Trump “makes creepy physical threats about me.”
We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy physical threats about me, right? He’s scared. He’s trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself. It may soothe his ego – but it won’t work. pic.twitter.com/2rfPSlvlQA

Later in the Boston Globe story is this factoid: “To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamante used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native American.” So all the test proved is that Warren might be 1/64 to 1/1024 Mexican, Peruvian, or Colombian — which again makes her no different than the average white American.
Between 1987 and 1995, Warren identified herself as Native American while she was teaching law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and Harvard. The latter used Warren’s Cherokee identity to boost the school’s racial diversity numbers.
