Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., argued that her family’s claim to Native American ancestry is an indelible part of who she is — something that can never be taken away.
"Her family's?"

Who, in her family, made that claim?

AFAIK, only she made that claim - basically "I remember being told that..."

I watched her answer to that question.

I guess she didn't get the word that politicians who talk like that are disliked now.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march.

Trump used his business acumen as one as well. More than this lady's used her ethnic background.

He used his non-disclosure of his income tax returns to advance his businesses?

How, exactly, did he do that.

C'mon, don't play that game. You know exactly what I meant.

Trump absolutely politicized his business skills in the campaign, yet wouldn't release his tax records. This woman politicized her ethnicity, yet won't release her background.

No business person succeeds in everything. But Trump is worth over $3B and he didn't get there shooting marbles. Real estate, hotels, golf courses, tv production,etc.

Do you deny the man has made money? Lots of money?

I flatly deny that going after Warren for not releasing her family history while giving Trump a pass on his tax returns is not hypocrisy.

Trump's success is self-evident. Warren's American Indian descent is not.

If she wants to use that ancestry as political capital, she needs to provide more than a family anecdote.

Your argument borders on the delusional.

Warren’s reputation is built on being scrupulous, calling BS and being the most honest person on the planet protecting the little person from the big bad vultures.

Yet she created this Indian persona and used to advance her career and her identity bona fides and now can’t seem to get out from under it. It is entirely plausible that it was erroneous family lore, just take the dna test and admit it.

Doubling down by talking to Indian tribes and all the other nonsense makes her look foolish.

All you've presented to support your claim that Trump is a great businessman is some empty plea to common sense. Please, let's talk about how awesome he is at budgeting.

Ok, so he doesn't know anything about business.

Then explain how he turned a $1M loan from his father into 3.5 billion dollars.

That actually is the big mystery of Trump. In business as well as well as politics. Why on earth has he been successful? Phrased differently, why on earth has anyone fallen for his shtick?


I would go as far as to say, why is he not homeless, with the exact same haircut, begging for change?
In my defense, I was left unsupervised.

Jon, that's rather an odd thing to say about anyone, as it could be said about anyone, including you and me I guess:

I was obviously exaggerating for effect, and possibly humor.


But I'm quite serious, for decades he has seemed like such a caricature of a self-promoting con man, I never understood why people took him seriously. And I mean bankers, vendors, spouses, etc. Not just the public.
