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.”
Trump just gave Don McGahn a reason to testify to Congress — ‘’and it won’t be good for the president’: CNN analyst
During a panel discussion on Donald Trump's latest attacks on former White House counsel Don McGahn -- accusing him of lying to special counsel Robert Mueller to make himself look good -- a CNN analyst suggested the president may come to regret his comments.

Sarah Sanders’ replacement ‘won’t last one day’ if they won’t lie for Trump like she did: CNN host
During a panel discussion on White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' plan to depart her job working for President Donald Trump, CNN host Kate Bolduan scoffed at the idea that the president will employ anyone who doesn't lie like he does.
Speaking with CNN media analyst Brian Stelter, Bolduan asked about Sanders contentious tenure and her abrasive nature with the press.
"Essentially the post hasn't been filled in the traditional sense for a long time," Stelter explained. "95 days without a traditional briefing. Clearly, he's going to appoint somebody. The white house communications director role hasn't been filled in the way it traditionally is."
Ex-White House aide snaps at CNN’s Camerota after she calls out Sarah Sander’s lies
In a frequently contentious interview with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, former White House Communications director Anthony Scaramucci snapped at the CNN host when she pointed out exiting White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' history of lying and attacking the press.
Asked about the timing of Sanders' departure, Scaramucci said the spokesperson had done her time -- one year serving on then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign and two years in the White House.
"She did a great job," Scaramucci attempted. "I know people have mixed views of her in places like this but I love her and think she did a great job and she is as an honest broker."
