Navarro: For Too Long Republicans Have Looked The Other Way At "Misogynist Racist Bigoted Pig" Trump

|

Republican commentator Ana Navarro trashed President Trump on CNN Tonight Tuesday as unfit for to be President of the United States. Navarro said he is either a racist or peddling to racists.

"it is his job as President of the United States to stand up for each and every American, to stand up vertically against racism and bigotry," Navarro, a CNN contributor, said.

"Pedaling to racism is just as bad as being a racist," she said. "Donald Trump is either a racist or peddling to it and both are frankly unacceptable and make him unfit to be President of the United States. If you can't be President, if you cannot stand up and represent Americans, you should not be president."

"When someone shows you who they are, the first time, believe them. For too long, Republicans in Congress elected leaders have looked the other way while a misogynist racist bigoted pig is in the White House," Navarro told CNN's Don Lemon.

ANA NAVARRO, CNN POLITICAL COMMENTATOR: Honestly, I don't have anything to say to her. Look, I think that Trump apologists are going to justify and pretend that thing he says and that they are seeing and say did not happen. And so I frankly think that it's a waste of time and useless exercise to try to convince them otherwise. So let me instead of talking to about that, let me talk to Donald Trump. And explain to him that as President of the United States, he represents blacks and Jewish people and Hispanics and people of every color and every creed. And it is his job as President of the United States to stand up for each and every American, to stand up vertically against racism and bigotry.

Pedaling to racism is just as bad as being a racist. Donald Trump is either a racist or peddling to it and both are frankly unacceptable and make him unfit to be President of the United States. If you can't be President, if you cannot stand up and represent Americans, you should not be president. And to my party, to the Republicans speaking out today, my question is what the hell took you so long? When someone shows you who they are, the first time, believe them. For too long, Republicans in Congress elected leaders have looked the other way while a misogynist racist bigoted pig is in the White House.

Let me tell you, we cannot capitulate the office of the President of the United States. We cannot capitulate moral clarity of or principles. We cannot capitulate Republican values and American values. No piece of legislation, no bone that he may throw on policy, no regulation is worth cheapening the office of the United States this way. It is breaking us apart. It is not news that is breaking us apart. It is the President of the United States who is causing this news. So Republicans need to stand up, need to grow a spine. And need to reject him.

They don't -- I'm tired of hearing Republicans say they're disappointed and disturbed by something he says. You know what? When he invites you to the White House, don't go. When he invites you to dinner, don't go. Do not stand next to him until he starts behaving in a Presidential manner. And if he can't, you've got to confront him over and over and over and over and over again...

He showed us during the campaign over and over and over who he was. We saw him boast about sexual predatory behavior. We heard him attack Judge Curiel. We heard him attack the Khans. We heard him attack Mexicans. We heard him attack women over and over and over again. He showed us who he was. But Republicans so many Republicans, look, I have friends here in Miami who voted for him because he was going to change Cuba policy and he did. But that is not enough. That is not enough because the harm he is causing this country is just too great to look the other way.

And many people thought that when he entered the Oval Office, he would become Presidential, that the magnitude of his office would make him change and become a Presidential figure. Well, six and a half months have gone by, seven months have gone by. You don't change a 71-year- old man. He is not going to change. And it is time that Republicans start realizing that and stops giving him a damn chance. He is not going to change. He will continue embarrassing us and making us feel ashamed.


Conservative commentator Amanda Carpenter tweeted Wednesday: "Trump has surrendered right to lead GOP. Republicans in Congress should publicly refuse to appear with him, fundraise for him, or meet w him."
