CNN panelist Ana Navarro suggested that anyone in President Donald Trump’s cabinet, indeed the Republican Party, should probably consider the food delivery service “Grub Hub” if they want Mexican food.
Her comment came the evening after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was booed out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C.
Navarro explained that she knows many of the members in Trump’s cabinet well and that some of them she considered friends and allies. She’s shocked that they aren’t speaking out in opposition to the president’s policy on migrant families.
“I have friends in that cabinet. Friends who I’ve known to be pro-immigration reform republicans. Friends who, I know, who were part of the Bush administration and espoused immigration reform and would have never stood for this before. But friends who have sold out their principles,” Navarro said.
One friend she said is dean of Florida International University had to cancel his appearance at the last minute at a Latino conference because he’s aligned with Trump. The head of the Republican Party, Ronna Romney McDaniel, is another friend of Navarro’s friends, was forced to do the same.
Republican apologist Steve Cortes had a difficult night on the Don Lemon panel. His attempts to spout talking points handed out from the White House earned groans and eye-rolls from fellow panelists Joan Walsh and Navarro.
“Baby jails,” Walsh said to him.
“Buenos noches!” Navarro said waving at him.
Lemon simply laughed and went to commercial.
