Warren – who claimed to possess Native American heritage, Cherokee, specifically, over the course of her academic career – deleted the infamous tweet announcing the results of her DNA test after PJ Media columnist Jim Treacher wrote a post titled, “Happy Anniversary to Elizabeth Warren’s DNA Test!” on Tuesday:
My family (including Fox News-watchers) sat together and talked about what they think of @realDonaldTrump’s attacks on our heritage. And yes, a famous geneticist analyzed my DNA and concluded that it contains Native American ancestry. pic.twitter.com/r3SNzP22f8

The DNA results did not bode well for Warren, despite her initial victory lap. The results showed that she possessed between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American ancestry, or between 0.1 percent to 1.56 percent. Additionally, the results indicated that Warren’s minuscule Native American links were not associated with tribes in the United States, further casting doubt on her claims of Cherokee heritage.
