WATCH: Ana Navarro Demolishes Trump Advisor For Defending Tweet Of Trump Hitting Hillary
During a panel discussion on Sunday, CNN contributor Ana Navarro unloaded on a supporter of Donald Trump after he smirked his way through an answer defending the president for retweeting a video of himself hitting a golf ball at Hillary Clinton.
Earlier in the day, the president retweeted an animated video of himself taking a swing on a golf course, spliced with footage of former presidential campaign candidate Hillary Clinton tripping and falling as she boarded a plane in 2011 as secretary of state. The footage is edited to make it appear as though Clinton is hit in the back with a golf ball before her fall.
Asked about the clip, former Trump campaign strategist David Urban tried to dismiss the president promoting violence against women.
“The president speaks directly to the folks,” Urban offered.
“I won’t judge what’s appropriate and inappropriate. Retweets do not equal endorsement, I think it says that on the bottom,” he continued before smirking at the camera.
His response did not sit well with Navarro, who let him have it after he also stated that Trump is “not obsessed with Hillary Clinton.”
“This is the part that drives me crazy,” Navarro began as a very uncomfortable former Sen. Rick Santorum (R) sat next to her.
“When decent people, decent Republicans who I know would judge Democrats differently give and normalize what Donald Trump is doing,” she continued. “We cannot normalize this kind of behavior from the president of the United States, he is still an example.”
Turning to Urban she scolded him, saying, “If your six-year-old son did this he would be punished and so this 71-year-old should not be accepted. He is being a jerk and he’s not being a president.”
