CNN commentator Ana Navarro and Republican strategist blasted both Donald Trump and the Republican party on CNN Tuesday. Navarro was debating former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, but at one point declared she was done with the debate and let loose on the president instead.
“Honestly, I don’t have anything to say to her,” Navarro said. “Look, I think that Trump apologists are going to justify and pretend the things he says did not happen. And so I frankly think that it’s a waste of time and useless exercise to try to convince them otherwise.”

“So let me, instead of talking about that, let me talk to Donald Trump, and explain to him that as president of the United States, he represents blacks and jewish people and hispanics and people of every color and every creed,” she continued. “And it is his job as president of the United States to stand up for each and every American, to stand up vertically against racism and bigotry.”
“Pedaling to racism is just as bad as being a racist. Donald Trump is either a racist or peddling to it, and both are frankly unacceptable and make him unfit to be president of the United States. If you can’t be president, if you cannot stand up and represent Americans, you should not be president.”
"My question is: what the hell took you so long? When someone shows you who they are—the first time—believe them. For too long, Republicans in Congress, elected leaders, have looked the other way while a misogynist, racist bigoted pig is in the White House.”
