Absolutely not -- part of her family denies it.
Absolutely -- part of her family says it's true.
How the hell would I know?
I don't see why this is so unbelievable.
No, seriously, this is the least important issue in the history of anything ever.

There are people who envision some self identity that across time somehow just became how the people sees him/herself to the person's mind. If she had always claimed NA ancestry - even if she couldn't prove it or it proven false - would be less worth criticism than conveniently changing her portray back and forth to suit her wanted and goals. Is it a big deal? In my view, just another low integrity politician - like so many (I suspect most) are.
I wouldn't say I really care but the answer is probably no.

All I've really seen to indicate she's purposefully and knowingly telling a falsehood is people pointing to the fact that at one point she claimed "white" on an official form instead of "native american". That isn't a clear indication of lying, as it can just as simply be explained as choosing to identify with the part of her heritage that was likely to be most beneficial at that time...as just one other explanation.
Could claiming it at one point and not claiming it at another, based on what's beneficial to you, warrant condemnation or scorn? Arguably, yes. Nothing wrong with showing scorn there. But selectively choosing what part of your heritage to embrace is different than outright lying.
I'm sorry that dealing with facts and what words actually means bothers you. If you want to be "done" with dealing with someone with more than an ounce of intellectual honesty and actually giving a damn about consistency and facts then that's fine...I can understand why you'd want to be "done" with such given your arguments thus far.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
