(Newser) – President Trump isn't buying the results of a DNA test suggesting that Elizabeth Warren has Native American ancestry. Trump unleashed a series of tweets Tuesday calling the test "bogus" and Warren a "phony." He also noted that the Cherokee Nation has criticized the Massachusetts senator for publicizing the results. "Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed," Trump wrote. "She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American." On Monday, Trump said he'd have to administer the test "personally" if Warren wanted him to pay up on a $1 million challenge, and Warren called that "creepy." Tucker Carlson of Fox News, meanwhile, was making up new names for Warren, including "Fake-agawea," per Mediaite. (Read more Elizabeth Warren stories.)
