Full disclosure: Ana Navarro is one of my favorite people on the planet. Notwithstanding that, she is on the money in what she did on CNN. She took the business to Donald Trump in English and Spanish for his statements on immigrants and women.
And here is the great and stunning irony of it all. Trump’s former advisor Michael Caputo said to Ana, “Ana, for you to sit here and call Donald Trump a flat-out racist is outrageous.” Yes, he used the word “outrageous” with no sense of irony.
Trump has said all sorts of outrageous things and now wants to claim they were just for the camera. He was just doing it for entertainment value.
The reality is that Donald Trump is now reaping what he has long sown in this campaign. It is coming back to bite him. He played to a role to get lots of free media attention in the primary, he got more and more outlandish, and now he is suffering with the consequences. What is really outrageous is that neither he nor his advisors ever thought he’d be held to account.
Ana Navarro is making him account. Good for her.
