Cherokee aren’t South Americans though, isn’t that what she claimed her heritage was?

1. Would that really make a difference whether it were Cherokee or Andean? 

2. While she said her family talked of Cherokee heritage, her main point was Native American heritage.

3. That said, if her family had talked to her of their heritage, what exactly is supposed to say when asked about it?  No?  All she has ever stated was that her family spoke of it.  She never claimed Cherokee citizenship nor listed Native American on any enrollment, registration or employment documents. 

4. Further, Trump said "Indian".  He never said Cherokee.

"We will take that little [DNA] kit, but we have to do it gently. Because we’re in the #MeToo generation so we have to be very gentle. And we will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn’t injure her arm even though it only weighs probably two ounces. And we will say: I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian."

1. Yes? I mean, if I claimed to be Japanese and ended up being Vietnamese I would think that would not be the same thing.

2. That’s not what was said in the interview. And she even said she had “no doubts”. W/c is strange because wouldn’t you at least have something physical that ties you into your heritage somehow before you went about believing it? I mean I got at least some pictures of my grandparents (who are 100% chinese). One would think someone who would claim to be something on an interview where everyone would see her would declare something as being undoubtably true, should have at least have done a little bit of research on her heritage at one point of her life. Don’t you find this a little iffy?

3. Question: is that what she is saying right now? Is that what you are saying? I’m having trouble pinning down what everyone is trying to say here. I’m fine with her retracting her claim and simply admitting that her family told her so, but I have trouble swallowing that someone like her would make those kinds of declarations (and claiming that she had no doubts) on camera without first trying to see if she those claims were true. I mean I would assume those are the kind of mistakes Trump (at his absolute dumbest) would make.

4. I’m not sure “South Americans being technically Indian by defintion so she technically wins the bet even tho her test shows that she may be related to a completely different type of Indian as she claimed to be and is at the same level of heritage as the common white American” captures the spirit of what the bet was about. Let’s be real here. Has this all sunk to simply trying to “gotcha” Trump with a technicality thru semantic games?
