Republican strategist Ana Navarro, slammed former President Donald Trump campaign aide Jason Miller, over supporting the downward direction of the Republican Party, during an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday.
Navarro said it was sad that the party embraced white supremacist such as Corey Stewart.
“It’s a sad time. It’s a time when we see Republicans attracting folks like pedophiles, attracting folks like neo-Nazis. Actually, some actual Nazis that have run and are running as candidates. So, you know, it’s a hard time. I will tell you it’s a sad time,” she said.
Navarro continued: “MAGA is basically equivalent to Trump. I think it’s a little more nuanced and a little more complicated than Trump or not Trump. You know, I think there’s certain different factions in the Republican Party when it comes to policy. What you’ve got is a group of folks in congress, a lot of them in the Republican party, who are quaking in their boots. They are cowards. They are afraid to speak up because they are afraid to run the same fate, to face the same fate as a Mark Sanford or a Jeff Flake.
Miller defended President Trump by saying he was a unifier.
“President Trump connected with those people and that’s why he whipped everyone in the primaries. That’s why he was able to reach out beyond the Republican base,” Miller said.
Lawrence O’Donnell throttles Donny Deutsch for saying Elizabeth Warren can’t beat Trump: ‘This is pure guesswork’
Lawrence O'Donnell and Donny Deutsch had quite the exchange in the post-debate conversation on MSNBC Wednesday.
Deutsch tried to say that Sen. Elizabeth Warren's outstanding debate performance doesn't matter because Warren can't win in a match-up against President Donald Trump.
"I do not believe Elizabeth Warren, on stage with Donald Trump, beats him," he told the MSNBC panel. "And I think if we're honest with ourselves and we look hard at ourselves, I think a lot of people agree with me. It's — and I also think when you can label somebody a socialist, 57 percent of this country thinks that word is un-American. I'm not saying it's fair. When he can blanket Elizabeth Warren as a socialist, and he's on stage with her, the Democrats lose."
Father and daughter drowning at the border fuels anger at Trump immigration policies
A shocking photograph of a Salvadoran man and his baby daughter drowned in the Rio Grande fueled a surge of emotion around the world Wednesday -- as US Democrats furiously denounced Donald Trump's immigration policies.
"Trump is responsible for these deaths," said Beto O'Rourke, one of several Democratic White House hopefuls who took to Twitter to lash out at the president.
Former vice president Joe Biden, who is also seeking the presidency in 2020, called the image "gut-wrenching."
"History will judge how we respond to the Trump administration's treatment of immigrant families & children -- we can't be silent," he said.
Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats in spirited first 2020 debate
Ten Democrats clashed in the first debate of the 2020 presidential race Wednesday with Elizabeth Warren cementing her status as a top-tier candidate and several underdogs using the issue of immigration to clamor for the limelight.
The biggest American political debate since the 2016 presidential campaign is occurring over two nights in Miami, climaxing Thursday with former vice president Joe Biden squaring off against nine challengers, including number two candidate Bernie Sanders.
But Wednesday's first take was a spirited encounter between Democrats like ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Cory Booker, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on subjects as varied as health care, economic inequality, climate action, gun violence, Iran and immigration.
