Well, that's awkward: A white supremacist who made headlines worldwide for plotting to take over a town in North Dakota received the results of a DNA test -- and the results say he's 14% black.
And this all happened while cameras were rolling.
Craig Cobb, 61, who has tried to create a white enclave in tiny Leith, N.D., submitted a DNA sample to the "Trisha Goddard" talk show and got the results back during a recent taping.
The UK's Daily Mail newspaper got a copy of the segment of the show, which is nationally syndicated by NBC, and posted video of the moment Goddard read out the results to Cobb in front of a studio audience.
"86% European and," Goddard said, pausing as the audience started to cheer before she continued, "14% sub-Saharan African!"
The audience erupted in cheers and laughs as a grinning Cobb began to protest.
"Wait a minute, wait a minute, hold on, just wait a minute," Cobb said. "This is called 'statistical noise.'"
"Sweetheart, you have a little black in you," Goddard said.
"Listen, I'll tell you this, oil and water don't mix!"
"So, hey," Goddard said while raising, and then moved to fist-bump a reticent Cobb, "Bro!" Cobb declined to fist-bump.
Cobb told the Bismarck Tribune on Monday that he doubted the validity of the test and said he planned to take up to three more DNA tests and publish the results.
