I know it is a stupid story but it shows that everything you do will be scrutinized when running for president.

Didn’t Mitt Romney do the exact same thing in 2012?

Never heard it so I looked it up:

Huckabee challenges Romney over fried chicken

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/01/28/huckabee-challenges-romney-over-fried-chicken/

Quote:
Mitt Romney's failure to eat fried chicken with the skin on is nothing short of blasphemy here in the South, according to GOP rival Mike Huckabee.

Romney, of Massachusetts, dug into a piece fried chicken at KFC while campaigning in Lutz, Florida on Saturday, but not before peeling off what most would consider the best part - the crispy skin.

Elizabeth Warren Formally Launches 2020 White House Bid

Bout time. Her own party will tear
her to pieces on the campaign
trail, and who can blame them.
She must be a glutton for punishment
or in total denial of the ramifications
of what she did.

Much like Elizabeth, when I was growing up I was told I likely had some native American blood, either 1/64th or 1/128th. However, I never made a big production out of it. Since turning 18, when I get asked about my race I generally answer, "human." I too took a DNA test to confirm or deny the rumor. It game back as 100% European. I've been meaning to take another one, to get more detail.

While I'm not familiar with every Dem primary candidate, Elizabeth Warren is currently on the bottom of my list.

We all know damn well Fauxcahontas took
a DNA test as soon as they became
available, to flaunt it in people's faces
that she was an Indian. So she's known
for 20 years that she's fails every
test, that's why she never brought it
up.

I'll never get mine tested. Every one of
these places sells your results for big
bucks to different agencies and soon
your DNA footprint is in every law
enforcement database in the world.

Somebody wants to frame you for
a crime, just plant your DNA at the
scene and they already have your
DNA on file. You're screwed.

I thought she passed the test and Trump didn't man up to his offer to pay $1,000,000 to the charity of her choice for proving her Indian (can I still say that word?) heritage.

She flunked it, she has less Indian
blood than the average American.
She claimed she had enough that
she could declare herself Native
American.

Oct 15, 2018 - Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s newly released DNA results show that the Democrat’s Native American ancestry is roughly the same as that of the average white American, and may be less.
