Republican CNN pundit Ana Navarro brought actual popcorn to talk about watching the “Chuck and Nancy Variety Show” in the Oval Office Tuesday.
During a panel discussion, Navarro hilariously mocked the president’s flub as Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lead the leader of the free world into a meltdown.
“Oh, please, play it again, baby!” Navarro exclaimed, eating popcorn. “Play it again on a loop! I could see that stuff all day. It is the most entertaining piece of video I have seen on TV since Teresa flipped over the table in the real housewives a few years ago.”
“Look, I think it’s — I think we did see transparency,” she continued. “We also saw that it’s the beginning of a new political reality for Donald Trump. Basically, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have been his backup singers for the last two years, nodding and going ahead and, you know, kind of humming along to whatever tune he’s singing and whatever tone he’s setting. He has met his match and, you know, I think this was a very good day frankly for Nancy Pelosi, who I am not a fan of. But what you saw today is nobody puts Nancy in the corner.”
Former Republican National Committee chief of staff Mike Shields had another difficult conversation where he tried to claim that Pelosi would quickly cave in to the angry left and go into full attack mode against the president.
He was quickly shouted down by both Democrat Bakari Sellers and Republican Navarro.
“She brought experience, and she brought facts,” said Lemon. “Listen, Mike, he is the president, right? He says he will gladly take the blame for the shutdown if he doesn’t get what he wants on border security. Do you think that was a misfire, or you think it was good?”
Shields tried to spin it as a win but failed miserably. Ultimately, Navarro concluded it was Pelosi won the day.
“I could watch those 15 minutes of TV all damn day,” Navarro said. “He does a great imitation of a cactus.”
Heather Heyer’s mom says things have gotten worse since Charlottesville — but she has a solution
CNN's Ana Cabrera on Saturday interviewed Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer. Her daughter was murdered by a white nationalist terrorist during the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
"When you watch what’s happening in Portland, thankfully everything right now is peaceful, but does it sort of give you that knee-jerk reaction where your hackles kind of go up, just given everything your family has been through?" Cabrera asked.
"My hackles don’t really go down anymore," Bro replied. "I am constantly tracking these things around the country as they happen. Yeah, I think after two years ago, mine will never completely go down again."

Trump’s ‘clown car’ economic team is totally unprepared to handle a financial crash: CNN’s Catherine Rampell
Washington Post economics columnist Catherine Rampell on Friday warned that President Donald Trump's team of economic advisers is woefully unprepared to handle a recession should one strike within the next year.
During a panel discussion of this week's economic news, which included a massive drop in the stock market after the U.S. Treasury yield curve inverted, Rampell explained why Americans should be deeply worried about the prospects of a recession under this president.
"They don't have a plan for what to do if things go wrong, and they could go wrong," she said. "We have this clown car of economic advisers... you have a guy who plays an economist on TV, you have a former Hollywood producer. This is not the dream team who will be handling a crisis if we face one."
