It’s only Tuesday, but this week has already been filled to the brim with controversy. Specifically making controversial headlines this week is news of Massachusetts Senator (and likely 2020 Democratic presidential candidate) Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test results confirming her slight Native American heritage

Warren has claimed for years that her genes are part Native American, but her latest DNA sample shows that she may have been exaggerating her heritage just a tad. (RELATED: Sen. Hatch Trolls Sen. Warren, Claims He’s 1/32 T-Rex)

To make matters worse for Warren, she is facing a starkly different candidate in her current race for re-election to the United States Senate. Shiva Ayyadurai is a scientist and MIT graduate who immigrated to the United States from (actual) India at a young age. He is running as an independent candidate in Massachusetts’ 2018 Senate Race.

With Massachusetts being one of the bluest states in the country, Warren is likely safe as far as retaining her current position. But this stunt could do real damage to her future ambitions.

So, who qualifies as more American-Indian? Warren or Ayyadurai? Vote below:
