Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion: First voter question to Elizabeth Warren in Sioux City: “Why did you undergo the DNA testing?”

America Rising, a Republican oppo research group which presumably has video trackers following Warren, posted the video.

It’s clear the person asking the question was sympathetic to Warren and framed the question in such a way as to accuse Trump of being a bully:

That’s a really long-winded answer to a simple question. The themes Warren hit, particularly that the accusations against her are racist, are part of a clear Warren strategy, something we discussed in the earlier post:

Even as she attempts recover from the DNA rollout disaster, Warren is still trying to deflate the Native American issue in a way Warren supporters, particularly in the media, have tried since 2012: By attacking people who bring it up as racist….

Warren also has a section [of her campaign-related website] devoted to calling people who raise the issue racist….

Warren also tries to parse the wording, with the diversion about whether she is a tribal member. That’s not the issue. She checked the box that said she was Native American when she wasn’t.
