Ana Navarro shames RNC Hispanic exec: ‘I’m old enough to remember when you were offended by Trump’

Published

on

CNN political analyst and GOP consultant Ana Navarro didn’t mince any words when she sat on a panel with GOP Hispanic Communications Director Helen Aguirre Ferré, reminding her of her extensive history of loathing GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Navarro, who unloaded on Trump earlier in the day, saying he “beats Hispanics like piñatas,” sat and listened to Ferré describe to host Ashleigh Banfield a meeting Trump had over the weekend with Hispanic leaders while putting a positive spin on it.

When it came Navarro’s chance to speak, she ticked off a litany of Trump offenses against the Hispanic community — including calling Mexicans “rapists” and attacking U.S.born judge Gonzalo Paul Curiel — before turning her ire on Ferré and reminding her of her previous history with Trump before going to work for the Republican National Committee.

As Ferré attempted to stop her, Navarro shot her down.

“Listen, Helen, I let you speak and I’m old enough to remember when you used to Tweet against Donald Trump! I’m old enough to remember when you used to be as offended as I am by the things Donald Trump used to say!” Navarro exclaimed.”That was before he was the nominee. That was before you had an RNC job.”

Ferré shot back that she has been offended by Trump, then added, “I more offended by what Hillary Clinton has done and what she hasn’t done. And, quite frankly, I’m offended that she panders to our community.”

Navarro replied by saying she has been critical of both Clinton and President Barack Obama on Hispanic issues in the past before pointing out, “Now I have never heard Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, and frankly most Republicans, use the racist remarks and the racist language that I have heard Donald Trump use for the last year.”

Turning back toJudge Curiel, Navarro pointedly added, “When you question a man’s ability to his job as a judge because of his heritage, that’s called bigotry.”

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans

Published

The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.

In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.

Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’

Published

on

Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.

To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.

Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
