Anyone else notice the hypocrisy of the bar we hold other politicians to, yet not the current President? If we did assume that Warren lied about her ancestry, is that somehow worse than what Trump has done? Considering that now Trump is a politician, should we begin to hold him to these standards?

What a double-standard we have.

Wait! Can't she just come out and say "Listen, when I checked that box that said "Are you a Native American?" I thought it said "Are you not a Native American." And I checked it. Whoops!

Done. Fixed. Move on. If people want to hold politicians to their words and actions, please do it to all politicians.

Because Wall Street is the economy and helping the economy helps everyone including the poor. Constantly giving freebies to the poor will not help them in the long term. This is something the Left will never get.

I want a female President in my life time. I want to vote for a democrat. Not a Maxine Waters type. I good middle of the road, willing to reach across the aisle and compromise. Someone who is willing to represent the base and not just the extremists or special interests.

Wall Street is part of the economy, but it is not the whole thing, by a long shot. What an absurd thing to say.

All they need do is grab someone wearing a suit in the nearest used car lot. You know, a Kurt Russell type. It would end up like 2008 all over again.

And given further thought about this whole Warren/Pocahontas thing... I thought you people disparaged "fake news."

So there's no direct evidence that I can find that says she "checked a box" anyway. Supposedly when she applied to Rutgers as a student she did not claim she was a minority. People involved in the hiring process of Warren said that her heritage didn't come up. However, she was mentioned as a minority on various reports after she was hired. That seems more like a boon for the university than for her.

But anyway - so let me get this straight. People want to hold Warren to the fire about her alleged heritage because they claim she had something to gain by leveraging it if it was false. Yet, they do not want to hold Trump to the fire for "allegedly" having bone spurs. He had much to gain by avoiding the draft. His father was a multi-millionaire. He was essentially a fortunate son with everything to lose by going to war.

A made up heritage/medical condition possibly resulted in someone taking advantage of the system. Now, what if Warren/Trump were simply told they had Native heritage/bone spurs from their parents? Would that make a difference?

Trump has a lot more of these skeletons in the closet than Warren (or probably other possible 2020 contenders). Yet, he can open up these line of attacks because for whatever reason, his own supporters don't really care about Trump's own problems.
