Lindsey Graham 2.0 Throws Down the Gauntlet – Challenges Pocahontas Warren to See Who Has More Cherokee DNA
Senator Lindsey Graham has been on a roll lately — and is showing no signs of slowing down.
On Tuesday, Senator Graham told Fox & Friends that he is going to take a DNA test to find out if he has more Native American blood than Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren.
“I’m going to take a DNA test,” Graham said. “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.”

Graham says that he will reveal the results on the same show when they come in.
“This is my Trump moment. This is reality TV,” Graham joked.
The Senator said that he didn’t really think about checking his DNA before Warren did, but now he is “dying to know.”
“I think I can beat her,” Graham asserted.
Senator Warren had released her DNA results this week in a stunt that backfired spectacularly. Her claims of being some miniscule amount Native American were slammed by Cherokee Nation, who said that “using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven.”
