Tuesday, appearing on "Fox & Friends," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) promised to take a DNA test to prove he’s more American Indian than Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has publicized results of a test showing she may be as little as 1/1,032 Cherokee.

Sen. Graham said that, when the results are in, he’s coming back on the show to announce the findings:

“I’m going to take a DNA test, all of you know.

“I’ve been told that my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all be just talk, but you are going to find out in a couple of weeks, ‘cause I’m going to take this test.

“I’m taking it, and the results are going to be revealed here. This is my Trump Moment. This is Reality T.V.”

Asked why he’s taking the DNA test, Sen. Graham said he’s “dying to know” the results – and that he’s confident he can beat Warren’s claim to Cherokee heritage:

“I’m dying to know. I didn’t really think much about it, but she’s less than one-tenth of one percent – I think I can beat her; I think I can beat her.”

But, Sen. Graham says he wants more than the cash President Donald Trump offered to pay Sen. Warren, if she could prove her claim of Native American heritage.

“I want a casino and a million bucks,” Sen. Graham quipped.
