The Elizabeth Warren DNA stunt was an epic disaster. It was so bad, that it’s probably up there as a contender for the worst PR disaster of 2018.
So, it’s no surprise that Republicans are cashing in on the catastrophe with plenty of jabs.
And no jab packed more hilarious punch than former Congressman Jason Chaffetz’s picture he took while visiting Disneyland.
Former Republican lawmaker Jason Chaffetz mocked Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Thursday by posing with a wooden statue of a Native American, joking that it was the Massachusetts Democrat.
“At Disneyland today with Senator Elizabeth Warren,” Chaffetz tweeted.

Warren has been criticized and made fun of for releasing DNA test results earlier this week in an effort to prove her ancestry claims. The results showed Warren may be between 1/1,024 and and 1/64 Native American.
The Cherokee Nation, the federally recognized government of the Cherokee people, condemned Warren for “undermining tribal interests” with the DNA test.
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven,” the group said Monday.
Republicans, on the other hand, mocked her.
“I’m dying to know,” Graham told “Fox & Friends.” “I think I can beat her.”
