Here comes Ana Navarro with yet another insane attack on President Donald Trump and this particular verbal attack was even bad for CNN… leaving host John Berman dang near speechless.
“There are times when the President of the United States needs to step up and be the unifier-in-chief,” she said.
“This was such a moment for him and he blew it to a level in order to pander to members of his base who he did not want to antagonize.”
Which seems well enough… for a Liberal I suppose but then she took things a bit too far.
“I’m glad [Republicans] are finally — finally! — stopping looking the other way and confronting the fact he’s not only unfit to be president,” she said. “In my book, his lack of empathy, his lack of leadership, his lack of courage, he’s unfit to be human.”
“Well…okay,” Berman responded awkwardly. “Let’s talk about him as the President of the United States for a second right now, Ana.”
All this in response to just how President Trump spoke out against the violence that happened over the weekend in Charlottesville, VA.
President Trump’s denouncement of the “egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides” was not a strong enough condemnation for Navarro of the ugly events perpetrated by neo-Nazis and alt-right activists.
When asked what, if anything, the President could say now to make up for not denouncing it immediately, she responded, “Nothing,” she responded. “It’s been days since all sorts of spiritual, government, elected Republicans, Americans have been asking him and calling on him to say something and have the spine to call out white supremacy.”
I’ve been embarrassed about having Trump as President, many times. But no time, worse than today. I’m beyond embarrassed. I’m ashamed.
