In yet another face-off between GOP consultant Ana Navarro and Scottie Nell Hughes, the Trump-backing Tea Partier offered up a bizarre defense of the GOP nominee describing grabbing an unsuspecting woman’s “p*ssy” — which Navarro promptly hit out of the park with a brilliant comeback.
Host Anderson Cooper asked Hughes about Trump’s grotesque description of sexually assaulting women, saying, “Let me ask you about that. Where have we made it okay to talk like that?”
According to Hughes, a popular erotic book is to blame.
“Unfortunately, we’ve made that to be a culture, a “50 Shades of Grey” culture in today’s society,” Hughes responded. “Men can talk like that. There’s nobody on that bus, as we’ve seen today, with someone [Billy Bush] losing their job over being suspended. 80 million copies of “50 Shades of Grey” was sold. “Magic Mike” was one of the most popular movies.”
“I didn’t read the book but I assume that was a consensual relationship, ” Cooper admitted.
“No, it was not all the time,” Hughes shot back. “The things that were done were not. You look at the vampire trilogy, pop culture itself has become very stretched in these areas. This is just a part of it, if you read anything from Sports Illustrated to Playboys, sex, unfortunately, sells.”
Hughes added that it makes her “crazy ” when she hears women talk to other women using foul language.
Given a chance to respond, Navarro was primed and ready.
“It makes you angry except when the person running for president of the united states says it,” Navarro began. “Let me tell you something, everything you just said is 50 shades of crazy! To compare running for president to an erotic film or erotic movie, an erotic novel, it’s crazy. If he wants to be held to that standard, great, then go write” The Art of the Groping.” But if you are running for president of the United States, you are a role model. You’re a role model for children like your daughter who you keep quoting. You’re a role model for all Americans. you’re held to a higher standard, you should not be behaving like if you are in a locker room. You should be behaving like if you are in the Oval Office.”

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.

Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
Trump claimed ‘inequality is down’ — one day later federal data showed the exact opposite is true
