CNN political commentator Ana Navarro went off the rails during a panel discussion with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Navarro said that Trump’s attacks on the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ) are just “disgusting.”

“Do you think this is appropriate and do you think there’s a strategy behind it?” Cooper asked.

“The president’s style is when he is attacked, he will punch back,” Republican strategist Adolfo Franco said.

“I understand the whole counterpunching thing which is a line we heard a lot from the president. He’s punching at a person who is dead. He is punching at a person that can’t fight back,” Cooper said.

Navarro, who worked as an advisor to McCain and was a close friend, said that everybody should condemn Trump’s behavior.

“It’s not okay to attack a dying man who had a terminal disease. It’s less okay to attack a dead national hero. Somebody that is still being mourned. His kids are mourning him and his grandkids are mourning him,” she said.

“People like Lindsey Graham,cannot condemn Donald Trump for these continued attacks on our dead friend and dead statesman, a national hero. Because we cannot normalize and we cannot accept this kind of behavior from the president of the United States. While some of his sons are still serving under his command,” she said.

“It is inhumane and immoral and everybody should condemn it. I don’t care if you support Donald Trump or don’t support Donald Trump. I don’t care if you like John McCain or couldn’t stand John McCain. He is attacking a dead national hero and that is plain disgusting,” she said.

Franco was struggling to response and Navarro  said, “Don’t justify this.”

Published

on

U.S. District Judge John Bates ruled Thursday that one of President Donald Trump's "blue ribbon panels" broke public meetings laws, reported Politico.

The law enforcement panel violated the Federal Advisory Committee Act, according to the federal court judge, by only allowing law enforcement on the commission and by holding meetings in secret.

"The commission’s final report was set to go to Attorney General William Barr later this month, but Bates said no recommendations can be submitted until the panel remedies the legal violations," Politico reported.

‘I’m tired of it’: Furious Fox News’ John Roberts blows up on the White House after contentious press briefing

Published

on

Fox News' John Roberts was enraged after the White House press briefing on Thursday in which Kayleigh McEnany refused to denounce white supremacy or explain why the president refuses to do so.

During Tuesday's debate, Trump hammered former Vice President Joe Biden on denouncing violent protesters, which Biden did, saying that violence is not the answer and anyone who induces violence should be prosecuted. President Donald Trump, by contrast, refused to condemn white supremacists and militias who are trying to stir up more unrest to help Trump craft a narrative that Democrats are dangerous and create violence.
