Donald Trump has put his foot in his mouth so many times that watching him squirm on camera when it comes back to bite him has become a beloved American pastime. He says things without even thinking, or simply to impress his simple-minded rally crowds. He never thinks of the consequences of his words, which is probably the most terrifying part of him being the President of the United States.
Monday morning, Elizabeth Warren released the results of her DNA test, done by Stanford Genius and 23andMe board member Carlos Bustamante. The results show that:
“Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that provides “strong evidence’’ she had a Native American in her family tree dating back 6 to 10 generations, an unprecedented move by one of the top possible contenders for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.”
Shortly after, Trump was questioned by reporters outside the White House as he was leaving for his trip to Florida to view the damage done by Hurricane Michael. He was quickly asked about the promise he made to give Elizabeth Warren $1 million if she could muster the nerve to get a DNA test to prove the Native heritage she claimed to have.
Trump was certain Warren was making up the existence of Indian blood in her family because of her pale skin and blonde hair, reasons only a derp would have for suggesting someone was lying about their ancestry.
Trump was very obviously annoyed by the reporter’s question, and immediately said he never promised Warren anything. He then quickly moved on to the next reporter. Check out the video below of Trump’s rough morning:
