On Monday, CNN’s Don Lemon hosted a panel centered around President Donald Trump’s divisive rhetoric and strategies ahead of the midterm election.
Republican strategist Ana Navarro who announced that she wasn’t voting Republican this time around slammed former President Donald Trump aide, Steve Cortes over his double standard.
Lemon played a racist robo-call that degraded Oprah who campaigned for gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D-GA). Cortes said that the robo-call did not reflect on Trump.
“Instead of talking policy, it’s character assassination,” Cortes said.
“You should have been careful last night when you called him a racist pig,” Cortes told Narrvo.
“Until you’re willing to hold the president of the United States to a much higher standard than you hold me, you can take that smirk off your face,” she responded.

Water bacteria cancels Tokyo 2020 paratriathlon test swim
The swimming section of a paratriathlon test event for Tokyo 2020 was cancelled Saturday due to high levels of bacteria in the water, the latest in a series of difficulties over water quality and temperature.
Olympic organizers have won widespread praise for their preparations but extreme summer heat and poor water quality have brought headaches at practice events, with less than a year to go until the opening ceremony.
The International Triathlon Union (ITU) shelved the swimming leg after tests showed levels of e-coli more than double the acceptable standard.
Psychoanalyst says Trump’s ‘mental pathology’ means he ‘hates reality’
Donald Trump is a living, breathing national emergency. Our president has repeatedly encouraged violence against his perceived enemies — and at least some of his supporters are following his lead. These are not isolated incidents. There are dozens of court cases where Donald Trump has been cited for "inspiring" acts of violence and other crimes.There are also the most odious examples such as the recent white supremacist terror attack in El Paso in which the alleged mass murderer wrote an online "manifesto" that almost verbatim channeled Trump's threatening rhetoric towards nonwhite people.
‘He’s crazy’: MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace says Trump’s confused behavior is getting ‘impossible’ to ignore
MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace argued Friday on "Deadline: White House" that the signs of Trump's frazzled and sometimes disjointed mental state are becoming "impossible" to ignore.
She first pointed to a passage in the New York Times report on his Thursday night rally, which said:
His speech was at times a greatest hits album of favorite lines, replaying the 2016 campaign against Hillary Clinton and bashing the news media, Democrats and America’s allies in Europe. Typically rambling, veering on and off script seemingly at random over an hour and a half, he repeated points he had already made earlier in the evening as if he did not remember already making them.
