Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has made headlines for days since she released the results of a DNA test that she says confirms her longstanding claims of having Native American ancestry — which, in turn, had allowed her in the past to identify herself as a minority in job searches.

In what was termed an “unmitigated disaster” for Warren by the Republican National Committee (RNC) in an email blast, the progressive senator also dropped a video into a self-serving tweet that proves that she is about as Native American as the next white person — or perhaps even less so.

Still, Warren continues to defend her baffling decision to release the DNA test, despite the fact that it shows she is as little as 1/1024th Native American, most recently to The Boston Globe.

The following 21 headlines, rounded up mostly by the RNC in the group’s email today and with some inserted here by LifeZette as well, show clearly and starkly what a mess this DNA reveal was for Warren. Note that many of these — not all — are from liberal mainstream outlets.
