NBC host Megyn Kelly ripped on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Tuesday after Warren released her DNA test results that showed that she is potentially 1/1,024 Peruvian, Mexican, or Colombian — not Native American.
Kelly mocked the incredibly weak results from the test that Warren was relying on to claim she was Native American, saying, “One out of 1,024, I don’t even know how to say that … does not allow you to say you’re a Cherokee.”
NBC News correspondent Jacob Soboroff brought up President Donald Trump’s previous statement that he would donate $1 million to a charity of Warren’s choice if she could prove through a DNA test that she was Native American, and asked Kelly if she thought Trump needed to pay up.
“I don’t think he does, because you know why? If you look at what he said, he said I’ll make the donation if you prove that you’re an Indian. That’s to quote him,” Kelly responded. “Did Elizabeth Warren just prove that she’s an Indian? Did she?”
“American Ninja Warrior” host Matt Iseman later stated the obvious, that Warren did not win with her DNA test reveal, noting that she didn’t pull off a “slam dunk.”
“It’s not even close to a slam dunk,” Kelly shot back. “She scored on herself! She scored a goal against herself!”
