During a CNN State of the Union panel discussion on President Donald Trump’s lament that his job turned out to be harder than he had expected, regular Ana Navarro smacked the president down for not taking his job seriously and spending “20 percent of it playing golf.”
After host Jake Tapper pressed former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) to defend Trump’s comments that he thought the job of being president would be easier than hosting Celebrity Apprentice and that he had “given up a lot,” Navarro stepped in to explain what has transpired during Trump’s first 100 days.
“We know he hasn’t given up golf, he spent 20 percent of the first 100 days of golfing. He did twenty golf trips to my state of Florida which is really costing taxpayers a lot of money,” Navarro asserted. “He golfed 20 times on Trump properties. We know he hasn’t given up tweeting. We know he hasn’t given up promoting his brand or his family. He know he hasn’t given up lying, exaggerating and telling mistruths. And we know he’s riding around in a nice plane, he hasn’t even given up his private jet. So what exactly has he given up?”
When the topic turned to Trump’s inflammatory rally speech in Pennsylvania Saturday night, Navarro once again took the president to task.
“Listen, in one hundred days he’s had about two minutes of unity,” Navarro explained. “And I will tell you when he introduced the widow of the deceased Navy SEAL at the joint address to Congress, he’s got to do more of that.”
“I thought yesterday was so symbolic of the last 100 days and it tells me about the next 100 days,” she continued. “You had Trump, President Trump in Pennsylvania speaking to his base, feeding red meat to the base and being divisive. You had the press celebrating the press standing up for journalism [at the WHCD] and you had the resistance marching in sweltering heat in Washington for climate change and against Trump.”
“Folks, that’s what the last 100 days has been and that’s what the next 1,360 days are going to be,” she concluded.

Daily Mail defends story linking Israel’s Ehud Barak to Jeffrey Epstein
Britain's Daily Mail newspaper on Thursday defended its decision to publish photos of one of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's election rivals entering the mansion of disgraced US financier Jeffrey Epstein in 2016.
Ehud Barak's lawyers wrote to the Daily Mail on Wednesday demanding that it retract Tuesday's story and pay "substantial damages to vindicate his reputation and compensate him".
Epstein had already been convicted in 2009 as a sex felon and served a 13-month prison term.
‘It’s Hafiz Saeed. Not Jason Bourne’: Trump mocked for tweet on arrest of Mumbai attacks suspect
Pakistanis Thursday mocked US President Donald Trump's claim that the alleged Mumbai attacks mastermind had been arrested "after a ten-year search" while he was actually in the public eye for much of the decade.
Hafiz Saeed, a firebrand cleric accused by Washington and New Delhi of being behind the 2008 attacks, was taken into custody on Wednesday, days ahead of a trip by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to Washington for his first meeting with Trump.
"After a ten-year search, the so-called 'mastermind' of the Mumbai Terror attacks has been arrested in Pakistan. Great pressure has been exerted over the last two years to find him!" Trump tweeted Wednesday.
Jeffrey Epstein spent almost all of his time abusing underage girls: ‘It was his full-time job,’ says victim’s lawyer
Jeffrey Epstein apparently did nothing but sexually abuse underage girls, according to one victim's attorney.
The sources of the financier's wealth are murky, as he had only one known client -- women's clothing magnate Les Wexner -- but attorney Brad Edwards said that seems to have freed Epstein up to engage in nonstop predatory conduct, reported Vanity Fair.
“It was his full-time job,” said attorney Brad Edwards. “We have not found anyone who has provided information about a legitimate business he was engaged [in].”
