Ana Navarro hammers Trump for tone deaf tweet over black woman’s death: ‘Was he raised by wolves?’
Appearing on ABC, conservative political consultant Ana Navarro lit into GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump for his tone-deaf tweet using the killing of NBA star Dwyane Wade cousin to appeal for black American votes stating, “He’s unfit to be human.”
Saturday morning, Trump responded to the tragic shooting death of Nykea Aldridge with a self-congratulatory tweet reading, “Dwayne [sic] Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”
The tweet — along with the misspelling of Wade’s first name — was harshly criticized with Navarro saying it was just the latest outrage committed by Trump when it comes to minorities.
After stating, “You can change the words a person says. You can’t change a person’s heart,” Navarro ticked off controversial statements Trump has made on the campaign trail.
“Hispanics aren’t going to forget Judge Curiel,” Navarro began. “African Americans are not going to forget he started the birther movement. I don’t think Jewish folks will forget the anti-Semitic ad against Hillary Clinton. The problem that Donald Trump has, is that most people have a memory and we’re not going to forget it in one week.”
“An African American was shot this weekend,” she continued. “Not only an African American woman, her name was Nykea Aldridge. She was the mother of four. And his first reaction was to say, ‘I told you so. Vote for Trump.’ Forget being unfit to be president. He’s unfit to be human.”
When conservative consultant Alex Castellanos attempted to interrupt her, she spoke right over him, angrily saying, “Was he raised by wolves? Who says that as a first reaction upon somebody’s death?”
