Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway on Monday morning dismissed Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test indicating that she has Native American heritage, saying that the results aren't interesting.
"I haven't looked at the test,” Conway said Monday, according to a CNN White House correspondent. “I know that everybody likes to pick their junk science or sound science depending on the conclusion it seems some days. But I haven't looked at the DNA test and it really doesn't interest me.”

Warren, D-Mass., released her DNA test results to the Boston Globe Sunday, and the report indicates “strong evidence” that she has Native American heritage stemming back six to 10 generations ago.
The Stanford University professor who analyzed Warren’s DNA said the “vast majority” of her ancestry is European, but “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.”
Trump has mocked Warren in the past for her claims of Native American heritage, calling her “Pocahontas” and saying that she was hired by Harvard because of her assertion that she was Native American.
Over the summer, Trump said that he would give $1 million to a charity of Warren’s choosing if she took a DNA test and it proved she was Native American.
