‘Like teaching a 4-year-old to read’: Ana Navarro ridicules Trump’s policy ignorance in leaked transcripts

Published

on

President Donald Trump appears to be so ill-informed on foreign policy, he has to have it explained to him like a four-year-old.

That’s the argument CNN commentator Ana Navarro made on Thursday as she and other panel members discussed their takes on the leaked transcripts of Trump’s conversations with Mexican and Australian leaders.

“The fake news, and the lying doesn’t surprise me anymore,” Navarro told host Anderson Cooper. “The one thing we know he is consistent about, Trump, is lying. The real story here is that you have the Prime Minister of Australia having to explain policy to him like you teach a four-year-old how to read.”

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball, Navarro said, had to teach Trump his own foreign policy — and the results were shameful.

“The president of the United States was completely ignorant and clueless as to the policy that they were discussing,” she said. “It was cringe-inducing, it was painful for any American to feel embarrassed by the lack of knowledge of this president.”

“It is astounding the level of leaks in this White House,” she continued. “Forget the new chief of staff — he needs to hire a plumber to take care of these leaks.”

Trump’s call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto proved to be just as cringe-worthy.

“On the Mexican phone call, his base should be feeling very duped today,” Navarro said. “He wasn’t telling the president of Mexico ‘you’ve got to pay for the wall.’ He was saying to him, ‘shut up, don’t say you’re not going to pay for the wall because you’re making me look bad’. It was all about how he looks, not the substance.”

Waas, who claims that he has personally examined the draft, reports that the original draft of Trump's letter justifying Comey's dismissal made it plain that he was displeased with the FBI for investigating whether the Trump campaign helped Russia interfere in the election.

George Conway annihilates Trump’s claim that Twitter censors him

Published

on

On Wednesday, following Trump's virtually incomprehensible rant on Fox Business about how Twitter is secretly stifling his content, conservative lawyer George Conway posted a scathing rebuke of his behavior:

George Conway, the husband of Trump's former campaign manager and counselor Kellyanne Conway, has been a frequent and vocal critic of the president's behavior.

Republicans have increasingly scapegoated an imagined political conspiracy of social media companies for every problem that they have online, claiming that there is a plot to censor or "shadow ban" conservative content.

This is how Florida Republicans plan to hand the election to Trump in 2020

Published

on

In 2018, voters in Florida passed Amendment 4, restoring voting rights to ex-felons. The measure passed 65 to 35 percent.

Now, Florida Governor and major Trump ally Ron DeSantis is expected to blunt the impact of the measure by approving a bill that would require ex-felons to have paid off all fees connected to their sentence before voting. That means Donald Trump might get a major boost in 2020, reports the Daily Beast.

SB 7066 requires ex-felons to pay off all financial obligations from their sentencing or get them excused by a judge.
