Fox & Friends Ridicules Elizabeth Warren For Deflecting Question on DNA Test: ‘I Guess That’s a No’

Fox & Friends ridiculed Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday morning, for her answer to questions over whether she would take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage.

Warren was asked about her heritage claim on Fox News Sunday by guest host John Roberts, and in response the Massachusetts Democrat deflected, citing her family history and what she had been told by her parents.

On Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy explained that Warren “has been accused of saying she is native American of that kind of heritage to get jobs, as for instance, as a Harvard law professor.”

Doocy added that Warren’s response to Roberts’ question as to whether she would take a DNA test to prove her heritage was “a good case of deflection.”

After playing the clip of Warren, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade replied, “Right, so I guess that’s a no.”

“I’m not sure, she said the whole life story,” Kilmeade joked. “That’s a yes or no answer. She gave the love story of her parents back in the age of the depression — I guess that’s a no.”

Doocy made an appeal for valuing science over faith, noting that, “rather than going towards science to settle it, she is just going to remember the story.”

“By the way, my family told me the longest time leprechauns were real,” Kilmeade added. “I, after a while, grew out of that story. I had to find out for myself. When I searched and found nothing, I had to change my opinion.”
