CNN’s Ana Navarro on Thursday applauded Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) for voting to convict President Donald Trump on abuse of power charges, while also brushing off attacks from Trump son Donald Trump Jr.
When asked by CNN’s Alisyn Camerota what she made of Trump Jr. calling Romney a “p*ssy” on his Instagram account, Navarro responded dismissively.
“I really don’t even want to spend any time talking about that little boy and his father and how inappropriate they are,” she said.
She then went on to give Romney kudos for following his conscience and voting to remove Trump from office, even though it meant coming under relentless attack from Trump supporters.
“I just want to say thank you to Mitt Romney,” she said. “You know, I’ve now heard his speech several times, and every time it hits me even more. As somebody who knows a lot of those senators, a lot of those Republican senators, it gives me — it gives me sustenance, such hope to know there’s at least one Republican, only one, who hasn’t sold out his principles, who hasn’t sold out his convictions, who isn’t trying to accommodate a president that wasn’t a Republican until a few years ago and who has no compass.”
She concluded by saying, “Thank you to the one sole Republican with the guts and the intestinal fortitude to do the right thing for the country, not for himself, not for the party, not for a president.”

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.
