What passes as reasonable debate on a network that all but dedicates 24/7 coverage to destroying President Donald Trump is a panelist screaming that the president is a “racist pig” on national television.
CNN’s favorite “Republican,” Ana Navarro yelled the insult during a discussion on Trump’s hard-line stance on illegal immigration and the rhetoric used when talking about the issue.
As expected, liberal anchor Chris Cuomo suggested that when it comes to the issue, Trump is “playing a game” to appeal to the prejudices of his base.
“You come from the presupposition that he’s racist,” said panelist Steve Cortes, the former Trump campaign operative and spokesman for the Hispanic 100.
“No, I don’t,” Cuomo replied. “Don’t cheapen the logic of what he does.”
And that’s where Navarro, the former Jeb Bush aide who now has a lucrative career bashing Trump, jumped in.
“Well, I think he’s racist,” Navarro said. “He called Mexicans criminals and rapists. He called El Salvador and Haiti sh*tholes.”
(CNN policy appears to be not to bleep the word.)
“Sign me up in the category of people who think he’s racist,” she added. “He has said so many racist things.”
Cortes countered to say this is the standard fallback to avoid talking about policy.
“You call him a racist when you don’t want to talk about policy,” he insisted. “It’s the ‘Scarlet R.'”
As Cuomo began closing out the segment, Navarro breathlessly repeated her claims before bellowing, “He’s a racist pig!”
An amused Cuomo rewarded her by commiserating with her Trump hatred.
Cortez quickly noted, “If he’s a racist, he’s the worst one ever because minorities are thriving under his leadership.”
