Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, on Monday suggested that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) had used “junk science” to prove that she had Native American ancestors.
The Boston Globe on Monday released the results of DNA test performed by a Stanford University professor. The test found that Warren likely had Native American ancestors in her family 6 to 10 generations ago.
But Conway hinted that Trump will continue to refer to Warren by the racist nickname “Pocahontas.”
“I haven’t looked at the test,” Conway told CNN’s Abby Phillip. “I know that everybody likes to pick their junk science or sound science depending on the conclusion it seems some days.”
“But I haven’t looked at the DNA test and it really doesn’t interest me,” she added.
