NYT Admits DNA Test ‘Darkened Lingering Cloud’ Over Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Ambitions
John Nolte, Breitbart
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) DNA test was such a fiasco, her advisers and even the far-left New York Times are worried this “lingering cloud over [her] likely presidential campaign has only darkened.”
“More worrisome to supporters of Ms. Warren’s presidential ambitions,” the Times writes, is that “she has yet to allay criticism from grass-roots progressive groups, liberal political operatives and other potential 2020 allies who complain that she put too much emphasis on the controversial field of racial science — and, in doing so, played into Mr. Trump’s hands.”
“Advisers close to Ms. Warren say she has privately expressed concern that she may have damaged her relationships to Native American groups and her own standing with progressive activists, particularly those who are racial minorities.”
The Times adds, “Several outside advisers are even more worried: They say they believe a plan should be made to repair that damage, possibly including a strong statement of apology.”
The paper says Warren is expected to announce her 2020 presidential campaign soon, and advisers want her to clear this up just as soon.
The problem for Warren, as I mentioned at the time, is that the window to clear up this legitimate scandal up has forever closed.
