Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes tried to shame Republican Ana Navarro over her refusal to vote for Trump — and she’s probably regretting it.
During a segment on CNN’s New Day, Hughes told Navarro that writing in her own mother for president wouldn’t do anything to solve the problem of rising insurance premiums or of legalized abortion.
“That offers no solutions to the problems Americans are facing,” Hughes said of Navarro’s decision to write in her mother. “It’s a very selfish answer.”
Navarro, however, wasn’t having any of it — and she rained hell on Hughes for trying to guilt her into voting for Trump.
“If I have voted for the Republican nominee every single time in my lifetime, and this year I feel compelled to be repelled and repulsed — and to reject that man — that is my right,” she said. “And you are nobody to question my choice!”
Hughes tried to interject, but Navarro was just getting warmed up.
“You know what? I was a Republican when he was a Democrat,” she said of Trump. “I was a Republican when he was an independent! And I’m willing to be a Republican when he gets tired of playing this little game. So none of you — not you, who came onto the scene just a little bit ago — are going to question my Republican gravitas!”

Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines
Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.
"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.
More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.
At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.
Chief Justice John Roberts issues New Year’s Eve warning to stand up for democracy
"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."
Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why
According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.
As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
