CNN regular Ana Navarro blistered a supporter of Donald Trump after he smirked his way through an answer defending the president for retweeting a video of himself hitting a golf ball at Hillary Clinton.
Sunday morning, the president went on a Twitter binge that included an animated gif of himself hitting a golf drive that cut to another clip that made it appear it hit Hillary Clinton in the back and knocked her down.
Asked about the clip, former Trump campaign strategist David Urban tried to dismiss the president promoting violence against women.
“The president speaks directly to the folks,” Urban offered.
“I won’t judge what’s appropriate and inappropriate. Retweets do not equal endorsement, I think it says that on the bottom,” he continued before smirking at the camera.
His response did not sit well with Navarro, who let him have it after he also stated that Trump is “not obsessed with Hillary Clinton.”
“This is the part that drives me crazy,” Navarro began as a very uncomfortable former Sen. Rick Santorum (R) sat next to her.
“When decent people, decent Republicans who I know would judge Democrats differently give and normalize what Donald Trump is doing,” she continued. “We cannot normalize this kind of behavior from the president of the United States, he is still an example.”
Turning to Urban she scolded him, saying, “If your six-year-old son did this he would be punished and so this 71-year-old should not be accepted. He is being a jerk and he’s not being a president.”

China vows to retaliate for Trump’s Rose Garden press conference — and could impose new sanctions on America
US President Donald Trump said Tuesday he was ending preferential trade treatment for Hong Kong and had signed into law an act that authorises sanctions on banks over China's clampdown in the international finance hub.
In a discursive news conference dominated by attacks on his domestic rivals, Trump declared himself to be the toughest president ever on China, a country he is increasingly positioning as his nemesis ahead of November elections.
Trump announced that he had issued an executive order on Hong Kong as he predicted decline for the restless city, on which Beijing recently imposed a tough new security law.
Trump’s former White House doctor Ronny Jackson wins GOP runoff for Congress in Texas
Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician and President Donald Trump's onetime nominee for secretary of veterans affairs, has won his bid for the Republican nomination for a solidly red congressional seat in the Texas Panhandle.
With 100% of polling locations reporting, though some mail-in ballots will still need to be counted, Jackson held a lead of 11 percentage points over Josh Winegarner, a veteran agriculture expert and lobbyist. Jackson and Winegarner were competing for a seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Clarendon, who is retiring and held the seat since 1995.
