Republican strategist Ana Navarro scolded First Lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump for "staged photo ops" to help President Donald Trump.
Appearing on CNN Newsroom on Saturday, as hundreds of thousands gathered in the street's to protest the administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, Navarro did not believe either had done enough to stop President Trump from harming children.
The topic of Melania Trump was raised by Republican strategist Alice Stewart, who worked on the unsuccessful 2016 campaigns of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. During the 2012 cycle, she also worked on two unsuccessful presidential campaigns, those of former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)
"In terms of this compassion, when we've seen Melania Trump make a second visit to the border, that goes a long way to show we care," Stewart argued.
"But does it?" asked host Fredricka Whitfield.
"No, it doesn't, Alice," Navarro chimed in.
"I'm a little over these staged photo ops, I'm a little over, I'm a little unaffected by hearing that Ivanka and Melania are having influence on the president," she charged. "And there are still 2,000 kids that are separated that are wailing for their mommy, sleeping under foil blankets."
"Really, Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump, girls, you got more work to do," Navarro concluded.
