The debate over just how “Native American” Elizabeth Warren is one of the dumber distractions currently drowning out more important matters. The Democratic senator from Massachusetts and probable 2020 presidential candidate’s claimed heritage has made her a favorite punching bag for the right, who freely engage in the sorts of racist and ethnic teasing preferred by the current Oval Office occupant. Further, Warren has done herself no favors by taking a DNA test, effectively taking Trump’s bait and keeping this “issue” alive.

Meanwhile, Trump’s supporters will continue to ignore all of their guy’s numerous legal, ethical and moral shortcomings, while the GOP continues to pick their pockets through huge tax cuts for the super-rich and corporations at the potential expense of Social Security and Medicare cuts.
