CNN contributor and one-time Republican strategist Ana Navarro on Thursday absolutely went off on President Donald Trump for his attacks on the late Rep. John Dingell (D-MI).
After Trump implied that the late Michigan Democratic lawmaker might be suffering in hell during a campaign rally on Wednesday, Navarro eviscerated the president for his shocking lack of humanity.
“It’s extremely disturbing, and one of the things we can’t stop is being outraged,” she said. “One of the things that Donald Trump has done is worn us down, where we all just shrug and say, ‘That’s Trump being Trump.’ No! He is the president of the United States!”
Navarro then sent her condolences to Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI), who was most personally hurt by the attacks on her late husband.
“I am sorry that Debbie is going through this, and I’m even more sorry that we have a pathetic, lame excuse, inhumane President who, instead of embracing the country and trying to unify this country, uses his presidential pulpit to attack dead war heroes, who unlike him did not make up bone spurs!” she said.
She then took a shot at first lady Melania Trump’s “Be Best” campaign against cyberbullying.
“Try better with ‘Be Best’!” she said. “‘Be Best’ should start at home!”

WATCH: Trump supporter gets tied up in knots defending president’s $750 income tax payments
A support of President Donald Trump this week struggled to defend the president paying just $750 per year in federal income tax.
During an interview with CNN correspondent Elle Reeve, a half-masked Trump supporter said that he wasn't bothered by the president's low tax bill because he figured all rich people pay so little in taxes.
"I would love to be able to comment on that," he replied. "I don't know. And it's one of those situations where you and I can both sit here and say if we made that kind of money, you know, you're going to play the tax game. It's set for millionaires to play the game."
‘Serial dishonesty’: CNN fact checker says Trump spewed falsehoods from ‘his very first sentence’ at debate
CNN fact checker Daniel Dale on Friday said he was nearly overwhelmed by President Donald Trump's dishonest debate performance on Thursday, which he said contained even more falsehoods than his widely panned first debate performance.
While appearing on CNN's "New Day," Dale broke down how Trump wasted no time spouting falsehoods during the debate.
"His very first sentence at this last debate was incorrect!" he said. "He was wrong in describing a pandemic-related statistic, and he went on from there to, again, falsely asserting that the pandemic is rounding some sort of corner, it's going away. In fact, the situation is getting worse in terms of cases, deaths, hospitalizations."
Trump tried to give Joe Biden the Hillary Clinton treatment — and it fell totally flat: NYT’s Haberman
New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman on Friday said that President Donald Trump at Thursday night's debate tried to attack Democratic rival Joe Biden the same way he successfully attacked former rival Hillary Clinton four years ago.
However, Haberman said that Trump's attacks on his opponent this year haven't been as focused or as consistent as they were on Clinton, which she said has given Biden an edge heading into the final 11 days of the campaign.
