The fallout from Donald Trump bragging about women’s genitals is still dominating cable news, and Trump’s surrogates are still flailing away trying to defend him.
On CNN’s New Day Monday morning, Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes said that the words Trump used to describe women’s genitals were “derogatory” and were “not allowed” to be said in her own home.
Fellow panelist Ana Navarro quickly pounced and pointed out that Hughes is still supporting Trump for president despite the fact that he says things like this on a regular basis.
“Do you not see the irony in saying that these words are unacceptable to you… and yet you are willing to come on TV be an apologist for a candidate who is running for the highest office in the land, and yet is saying these words,” Navarro said. “Apparently, Scottie, when Donald Trump says ‘pussy,’ he’s referring to a baby cat.”
Hughes at this point became offended by Navarro repeating Trump’s crude language and yelled out “Stop!”
Navarro then let her have it again.
“If I say it, you find it crass and offensive,” she told Hughes. “I think you have no self awareness of what you are saying and how insane it sounds.”
Hughes responded by saying that even though Trump was wrong to talk about grabbing women by the genitals, TV pundits should act better than him by not repeating his words verbatim on the air.
“Our audience deserves to be treated better,” Hughes said. “And to sit here and continue to say these words, that does not help the conversation. I do not agree with them, but we should not use that language.”
At this point, Navarro absolutely laid waste to Hughes’s arguments.
“What you are doing is coming on TV, and you are being an accomplice, you are being an enabler,” she said. “If you can live with that, that’s fine with you. I can’t, I have to look at myself in the mirror and live with my conscience.”

WATCH: Trump advisor trashes Dr. Fauci — while pushing coronavirus conspiracy theories
White House economic advisor Peter Navarro pushed several conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic as the administration attempts to deflect blame for America responding to coronavirus worse than any other developed country.
At one point in the interview, MSNBC's Ali Velshi had to ask, "What are you talking about?"
Navarro harshly criticized Dr. Tony Fauci, who is one of his colleagues in the administration.
And he tried to blame the "Chinese Communist Party" for the disease, saying "they spawned the virus, they hid virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."
Ron DeSantis threw temper tantrum after Trump hired strategist he ‘exiled’ from Florida GOP: report
On Friday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump has brought back longtime Florida Republican strategist Susie Wiles to try to save his electoral chances in the critical swing state — and that Gov. Ron DeSantis, who worked to cast her out of power in the Florida GOP, is enraged by the move.
"Trump’s decision to reinstate Susie Wiles to his campaign’s good inner circle follows months of behind-the-scenes efforts to bring her back after she was exiled at the demand of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who had her cast out of the president’s good graces in September," reported Gary Fineout and Marc Caputo, and it "comes as polls show Trump trailing Democrat Joe Biden in Trump's adopted home state. Trump won Florida four years ago by less than 113,000 votes and a loss in the battleground would likely doom his reelection effort."
Mike Pence calls his wife ‘mother’ — and just referred to Trump as ‘my father’
Mike Pence raised eyebrows on Friday when he sent a campaign message referring to President Donald Trump as "my father."
"We need you right now," Pence wrote in a campaign ad. "It's going to take EVERY Patriot stepping up if we want to CRUSH Sleepy Joe's dreams of turning America into a BIG GOVERNMENT SOCIALIST Nation."
"I convinced my father to give you another chance, which is why he's decided to EXTEND your PERSONAL 500%-MATCH OFFER FOR 1 MORE HOUR," Pence wrote.
NBC News reporter Brandy Zadrozny posted a screengrab of the advertisement.
Zadrozny also offered a theory that language could've have resulted from a copy and paste error with language from an ad that was meant to come from one of Trump's children.
