"Who Cares?"


The title is what Trump said on the way to Georgia when asked about Sen. Warren's DNA test proving she had some Native American heritage.  He also said he didn't say what he said.

By the time he got to Georgia, he decided to amend his challenge, because, you know, scientists have political agendas.  Well, that's what he told Leslie Stahl about climate change, in the same interview where he said that Jim Mattis was a crypto-Democrat (which would be grounds for deportation, if Trump could swing it).

This is what he's up against:

The analysis of Warren’s DNA was done by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a genius grant, for his work on tracking population migration via DNA analysis.

You can see why Trump would want to do it himself.  Aside from the fact he doesn't have $1 million to spare.  And always, literally, let's his mouth write checks his ass can't cash.

This really is about as dumb as it gets.  "The President of the United States, Ladies and Gentlemen!"

Some days it's not worth getting out of bed.

I'm sure the media, including the NPR I had to listen to this morning - sister's visiting - will try to diminish this as they did every other Trump lie.

I think if nothing else, Elizabeth Warren could have a lot of fun with this. She should get the people who support and benefit from National Indigenous Womens Resource Center to join in with making this a continual source of irritation to him. Maybe he can get Putin to pay for it.
