Republican strategist Ana Navarro on Wednesday unloaded on a Trump-defending Republican for trying to claim that the president’s attacks on black people’s intelligence aren’t racist.
After Scott Jennings, the former special assistant to former President George W. Bush, argued that Trump was an “equal opportunity” offender of people, regardless of their skin color, Navarro jumped on him and said you can’t take the president’s regular attacks on black people’s intelligence as isolated events.
“I frankly don’t know where you have been for the last three years,” she said. “I don’t know where you have been for the last 40 years!”
Navarro then listed off all the racist attacks Trump has made against black Americans.
“This guy’s racist history and racist past began with housing discrimination in New York in the ’60s,” she said. “Let’s not forget the Central Park Five. Let’s not forget the attacks on Frederica Wilson, Maxine Waters, and John Lewis, who is a quasi-deity when it comes to civil rights. Let’s not forget the birther conspiracy, questioning Barack Obama’s authenticity and legitimacy as a president.”
While this list of racist Trump incidents is bad enough, Navarro wasn’t finished by a long shot.
“Let’s not forget the s-hole countries,” she continued. “Let’s not forget the second-class treatment of Puerto Ricans. Let’s not forget the attacks on Don Lemon and LeBron James for calling them dumb… I mean, come on! Wake up and smell the racism, really it isn’t that hard!”
