If the Guinness Book of World Records compiled records for trolling, V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, one of the GOP challengers for the U.S. Senate seat by Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) would not only be recorded in that book, but in a trolling Hall-of-Fame. Mr. Ayyadurai, sent Warren, whose claim of having a Native American background was exposed as fraudulent, a gift-wrapped 23 & Me DNA test kit for her birthday. Unfortunately, he said, she refused it and sent it back.
V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai who is of Indian background tweeted out, “I’m deeply saddened
@SenWarrenrefused my thoughtful (gift-wrapped) Birthday Gift: the 23&me DNA Test Kit. Most unfortunate! #FakeIndian”

During her first run for the Senate Elizabeth Warren was exposed for lying about her background.
According to The Boston Globe, back in 1984, Warren and members her family contributed recipes to a Native American cookbook, where she signed her name Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee. Then in 1986, Warren listed herself as a “minority” in the American Association of Law Schools’ directory of faculty, which is commonly used by recruiters. In the early 1990s, she was hired by Harvard as a law professor, and the university actually touted Warren’s phony ancestry. By 1995, once she had achieved tenure, Warren stopped listing herself as a minority.
Of course after being exposed, Warren claimed that she didn’t know Harvard had used her unconfirmed heritage to appear more diverse. Warren also denied that she ever used her unproven lineage to gain a professional advantage. Instead of coming clean in 2012 during the height of the controversy, Warren continued to spin her Indian fairy tale
“I am very proud of my heritage,” Warren told NPR in 2012. “These are my family stories. This is what my brothers and I were told by my mom and my dad, my mammaw and my pappaw. This is our lives. And I’m very proud of it.” She can’t be too sure of her heritage, after all she lies about it.
I still have a picture on my mantel at home, and it’s a picture my mother had before that, a picture of my grandfather. And my Aunt Bea has walked by that picture at least 1,000 times, remarked that he … had high cheekbones like all of the Indians do, because that’s how she saw it. And she said, ‘And your mother got those same great cheekbones, and I didn’t.’
Sending Warren the DNA test kit was the perfect troll, because without getting nasty about it V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai reminded Massachusetts voters that Elizabeth Warren is a “digvtsugi” which is Cherokee for liar,
