Republican commentator Ana Navarro wants to see former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) get right with Jesus after some inappropriate comments about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The justice and meme phenomenon announced that she had a prior engagement and wasn’t going to make it to President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address. Huckabee responded by tweeting out the photo of her dozing off during a 2015 address.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg clapped back at Huckabee for his tweet about Ginsburg, calling it “nasty.”
It's not fair that ppl are criticizing Justice Ginsberg for skipping SOTU! Security concerns wouldn't allow her to bring CPAP machine into House Chamber. pic.twitter.com/9GOR4NlHkr

“I loved her explanation,” Goldberg recalled. “She was like, look, we went to dinner, and the meal was good, I decided, I need to have some wine. OK? So, I had some wine, and — maybe I nodded off.”
Ginsburg also explained in interviews that the previous night she’d been awake until the early hours of the morning writing her comments about an upcoming case.
“For a man who gets upset when SNL critiques his daughter, is this not strange?” Goldberg asked.
Co-host Sunny Hostin demanded Huckabee “have some respect” for a Supreme Court Justice.
But it was Navarro who went for the jugular.
“Two things: one, she’s a Supreme Court Justice,” Navarro agreed. “Two, he’s a preacher. I mean — he’s still an evangelical preacher, right? Who does some TV and he’s the father of the current press secretary who gets attacked all the time and he doesn’t like it. So, I think, I would say, look, do unto others as you would like done unto you daughter.”
Since they were on the topic of mean tweets, Navarro also called out Lynn Patton, an aide at Housing and Urban Development who called White House correspondent April Ryan “Miss Piggy” in a tweet. Navarro was furious that she’s paying the woman’s salary as a tax payer while she’s attacking reporters on Twitter.
Goldberg asked for clarification on who the woman was and her colleagues told her it was Trump’s former party planner. Goldberg broke into hysterics.
“Oh, that’s who this is? Look, you know, not to throw shade or anything, but look in the mirror,” Goldberg said.

‘He looks like a florescent green helium balloon’: CNN panel breaks into hysterics at Sean Spicer on #DWTS
A CNN panel couldn't stop laughing as Republican Scott Jennings rushed to the side of former press secretary Sean Spicer, who debuted on "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night dressed in a bright-green ruffled shirt and dancing the Salsa.
"No way. What the Hell?" Rye asked the second she saw the video of Spicer.
"So, you’ve seen it," Lemon asked Jennings. "So, is this the guy you remember?"
But Rye, blindsided by the chartreuse, cut in.
‘Not a single Republican reached out to ask what can we do’: Trump’s ‘my African-American’ fan blasts GOP
President Donald Trump once called Gregory Cheadle "My African-American" during a California campaign rally in 2016, but now Trump's champion is out and he says it's due to the GOP's white supremacy.
In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon, Cheadle asked how any person of color could be part of a party that doesn't want them.
"Well, he and the party have just shown that they have no interest in any of group but white," said Cheadle. "Whites are the primary group. Everyone else may get crumbs. But his agenda is targeted towards benefitting whites. For the GOP as well. The GOP is they want to slash Social Security. They want to slash welfare. They don't say diddly-squat about cutting subsidies, loan guarantees, government contracts and whatever else for the wealthy. So they're all about themselves."
The real reason Trump is so jealous of Obama is that he might win an Emmy: Trump biographer
A CNN panel broke out into laughter talking about President Donald Trump's pathetic jealousy of his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
Obama's new book is slated to score major profits, so he was given a substantial advance for the book. Former first lady Michelle Obama has already enjoyed considerable success from the release of her book and tour. The couple has since made a production deal with Netflix for their company that will focus on fiction and non-fiction stories with a positive social message. Meanwhile, Trump is struggling to win reelection.
"Why is this president so fixated on the former president?" wondered Lemon. "Whether it is North Korea, federal judges, a racist birther lie about the former president not being born here, that’s the one that got him into the political scene. It seems like this president has an obsession with former President Obama. What’s going on?"
