Guy Benson: ‘There’s a Very Real Possibility’ That Trump is ‘More Native American Than Elizabeth Warren’

On Monday night, Fox News contributor Guy Benson had some harsh criticisms for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) over her release of a DNA test that might prove some Native American heritage.

Early in the morning, Warren publicized the findings of her DNA results which suggest that she may have a 6th-10th generation Native American ancestor, making her anywhere from 1/64th-1/1024th Native American. However, as The Boston Globe reported, the test relied on Mexican, Colombian, and Peruvian DNA instead of actual Native American DNA.

Well, Benson had a lot to say about it.

“There’s a very real possibility that Donald Trump is more Native American than Elizabeth Warren,” Benson told Fox News anchor Bret Baier. “I think he should take the test himself and just troll her if that’s the case because it’s possible.”

Benson insisted that Warren wanted to “rip off this band-aid” as soon as possible before her likely 2020 presidential run.

“This is an embarrassment, right? It’s an embarrassment for her, it’s an embarrassment for anyone in the media who try to pretend like today’s news was good news for her,” Benson continued. “She wants to get this off the front burner as soon as possible so that when they 2020 race heats up, it’s already old news because there’s no good spin on it. Secondly, if you see the way that she did it in the video, she’s pitting herself against Trump. She’s telling Democratic voters, ‘Either believe my ludicrous spin or you’re with Trump.’ And she took a shot at Fox News in her tweet. She’s appealing, ironically, to tribal politics.”
