The View’s Ana Navarro stiff-arms Meghan McCain for comparing Trump to protesters outside Fox host’s house

Published

on

Ana Navarro guest-hosted “The View,” where she ripped President Donald Trump for singling out reporters and attacking them.

She pointed to the president’s impromptu news conference earlier Friday morning, when he called CNN’s April Ryan a “loser” and told CNN’s Abby Phillips her questions were “stupid” — and Navarro and co-host Joy Behar noted the two reporters were black women.

“Earlier in the week in that same press conference where he was off the rails, he told (PBS reporter) Yamiche (Alcindor) her question was racist,” Navarro said. “Let’s not forget that just three weeks ago, over 12 explosive devices were sent in the mail, including three to CNN, and here he is calling the press the enemy of the people. Here he is personally ad hominem attacks against the press.”

McCain insisted both sides were to blame and compared the president’s attacks on the press to a group of anti-fascist protesters who showed up at Fox News broadcaster Tucker Carlson’s home.

“Antifa protestors stormed Tucker Carlson’s house to the point where his wife had to call 911,” McCain said. “I’m just saying, it’s happening to journalists on all sides.”

Navarro said she’d condemned the protest, saying it’s unacceptable to “terrorize” a broadcaster’s family — but she said McCain’s comparison was fundamentally invalid.

“There’s a difference, I think,” Navarro said. “I hold the president of the United States to a higher standard. He’s got a bigger bully pulpit than anybody in the world, a bigger platform than anybody in the world. After three of people receiving bombs in the mail, and I was on the list of people getting threatened by that madman, to continue attacking the press this way is, frankly, irresponsible, offensive and condemnable.”

Published

"His fight! Neo-Nazis, KU-Klux Klan, racism: How Donald Trump is protecting hate in America," is a Facebook-generated translation of the cover story's title.

Published

on

Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday went off on an angry rant after Fox News hosts questioned the wisdom of President Donald Trump's latest attacks on four Democratic lawmakers known as "The Squad."

In particular, Conway was asked about Trump's tweet in which he said Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) were incapable of loving the United States.

Conway responded by attacking the women for voting against funding for the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, which the lawmakers argued would just be giving the president money to further his campaign of abusing immigrants.
