2. Are you serious?

If so, I think you are a troll, imo. Tax returns are normally provided by a President, DNA tests are not.

7. half serious, half joking. I don't expect it to happen. but

It might get trump to shut up about Warren's background.

BTW; I believe, and hope, Warren wins in 2020.

9. I believe the point is

no one believes Trump will release his tax returns, but making such an offer would put him on the defense. Also it is the same sort of offer that he would make.

4. No

Come to think of it, this is a new version of “Birtherism” (which he didn’t start either).

5. No, A) she has nothing to prove, he does. B) she probably knows how...

DNA tests for ethnicity work and don't work especially for NA since there are so few samples to pull data from. For instance, you can have a certain ethnicity in your genealogy and not have it show up at all. What's even more 'fun' is your biological sibling could get a good chunk of it.

ETA: Link to more info on "Admixture" (Ethnicity) with DNA tests:

11. And that makes sense because of...

how our ethnicity is inherited and what samples are used.

I really wish Democrats would stop suggesting she test. Warren is about as straight forward a d no BS as they come. If she says she has NA than I believe that she believes that and that's good enough for me.

If anyone wants to learn more about NA and DNA tests this is one of the best explanations I've come across:

6. She should agree

If he'll take a lie detector test live on TV by a tester of her choice.

8. Trump would pass a lie detector test.

Lie detectors don't work on pathological liers. Lying is part of his basic personality. He probably believes that whatever he says is the truth.
