Frequent Donald Trump critic Ana Navarro got in a dig at the GOP presidential nominee Monday afternoon, responding to the candidate’s daily complaint that the election is “rigged.”
Speaking with CNN host Jake Tapper, the GOP consultant used a bit of her own history to explain what a real “rigged” election is.
“He’s trying to set it up so that when he is a ‘loser'” Navarro snarked while using air quotes, “A word that he might be physically allergic to, he can then blame it on somebody else.”
“Let me tell you this,” she continued. “I come from Nicaragua. I come from a country where the elections have been rigged. Where there’s been communism. I know people who come from Cuba. I know people who come from Venezuela. Those are rigged elections. Yesterday I was at Mt. Vernon, and it inspired me to think what those Founding Fathers went through to set up this system. Is it a perfect system? It’s not. But stop calling it a rigged system so you can start setting up your alibi.”
When Trump-backing former Congressman Jack Kingston pivoted to say that he approved of poll watchers, Navarro cut him off saying, “That is dramatically different.”
“Let me tell you what’s rigged!” she explained. “It’s a rigged system when a billionaire can pay no taxes and get away with it!”

Trump ridiculed for plan to build a ‘National Garden of American Heroes’: ‘Surprised he didn’t include Zorro’
At President Donald Trump's Independence Day Speech at Mount Rushmore, he pledged to sign an executive order establishing the "National Garden of American Heroes" in reaction to efforts to tear down monuments glorifying racist historical figures. Although many of the people proposed by the administration for the garden, like Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr., are fairly universally beloved, others, like former President Ronald Reagan, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and evangelical preacher Billy Graham, are sharply partisan choices.
The White House just sent out the text of the executive order. It creates a task force to recommend how and where to create this new garden. And it specifies the statues that should be in the park (including Antonin Scalia): pic.twitter.com/fGjFbr4JtQ
WATCH: Maskless Kimberly Guilfoyle gives speech to Trump supporters the day before her positive COVID test was announced
Donald Trump Jr.'s girlfriend, Trump campaign fundraiser Kimberly Guilfoyle, made headlines with the announcement she tested positive for COVID-19 with hours to go before President Donald Trump's speech at Mount Rushmore. The campaign was quick to note that this occurred before the president arrived in the state, that Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. would be backing out of attending the president's speech, and that they would not have any contact with him until further notice.
Guilfoyle’s positive COVID-19 test a ‘set-back’ for troubled Trump campaign trying to brush off pandemic fears: report
According to the Washington Post, the report that top Donald Trump 2020 campaign official, and girlfriend to Don Trump Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle has tested positive for COVID-19 is not only a setback for the president's troubled campaign but also a stark reminder that the coronavirus is still spreading rapidly despite the president's denials.
