Ana Navarro rips into Steve Bannon on CNN: Only exists because ‘secretive billionaires’ fund him

CNN political commentator Ana Navarro could care less about Steve Bannon.

The Republican strategist and commentator thinks the Breitbart News executive chairman and former Trump Chief Strategist is simply “much to-do about nothing” but went ahead and ripped into him anyway.

Navarro was speaking Wednesday on CNN about defeated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, calling the Republican a “sore loser and cry baby.” Bannon, who supported Moore, has now severed ties with Paul Nehlen, who is challenging House Speaker Paul Ryan, after recent inflammatory remarks.

“Even Steve Bannon, who really backed Moore, campaigned for him there, he seems to be having a change of heart at least for a different candidate,” CNN anchor Ana Cabrera said to Navarro. “Do you think Bannon’s backtracking in this case as a result of lessons learned in Alabama?”

“Look, frankly, I don’t know and I don’t care,” the outspoken Trump critic responded. “I think Steve Bannon is much to-do about nothing. I think this is a guy who wants to create his own myth.”

Bannon is “hurting the Republican Party by backing these very hateful, divisive candidates who are just not representative of the Republican values that most of us grew up with,” Navarro added.

“And, as far as I’m concerned, he’s been defeated and he’s been defeated pretty badly already, Steve Bannon,” she continued.  “So who cares at this point what he’s doing? The only reason that guy exists is because there are some secretive billionaires willing to keep funding him.”

Later, Navarro reflected on President Trump’s first year in office, again slamming Bannon.

“It’s been a chaotic year for that White House,” she said.  “I think the White House is a better place for not having a Steve Bannon in it. It is a better place for having a more professional staff in it.”
