CNN’s Ana Navarro: Trump a ‘nincompoop’ who’s ‘unfit to be a human’

While appearing on Monday morning’s edition of CNN Newsroom, political commentator Ana Navarro declared that President Donald Trump is a “nincompoop” who is “unfit to be a human,” Newsbusters and others reported.

“He was a coward,” she said. “He didn’t have the spine to behave as the leader of the United States and I feel that to be shameful. I’m glad Republicans are calling him out on it. I’m glad elected leaders in the Republican Party are finally, finally stopping looking the other way and confronting the fact that he’s not only not fit to be president. In my book, his lack of empathy, his lack of leadership, his lack of courage, he’s unfit to be human.”

Navarro went on to say that “nothing” Trump says is sufficient in her mind, despite the fact that he’s already spoken against the violence in Charlottesville twice.

“It’s been three days since the march. It’s been two days since Heather Heyer died — was murdered by a white supremacist. It’s been days since all sorts of spiritual government elects Republicans, Americans have been asking him and calling on him to say something and have the spine to call out white supremacy…Look, he had an opportunity. He’s had two days. He’s had more than two days to address this and he has failed to do so. To do so now under duress because of public perception, because of public pressure. thank you, buddy. I really don’t need it,” she added.

But she wasn’t finished, and went on to call Trump a “nincompoop.”

“I think it’s the spiritual leaders, I think it’s the governors, I think it’s the other elected leaders, I think it’s U.S. citizens, I think regular people need to stand-up and unify and heal ourselves because the President of the United States is a shameful nincompoop incapable of doing it on his own.”

Conservative talk radio host and CNN political commentator Ben Ferguson was also present, and took Navarro to task for her comments.

“It’s easy to go out there and throw bombs. It’s easy to say the President is nincompoop or not a human as Ana just said. But when you are the President and see violence like this, we know what many times happens at night afterwards,” he said.

“There are people that are angry on both sides. They go back out, there are riots, people die, policemen die. We’ve seen it in different venues around the country the last several years and I think he had a responsibility to tell people we are bigger than this, that we love one and, as a country, we need to come together. And that was one of the tweets that he did send out that no one gives him credit for,” he added.

Here’s video of her childish rant:

Navarro claimed on Twitter that liberals like her would have commended Trump if he gave Monday’s speech on Saturday:

Somehow, we rather doubt that.

As former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said during an interview on “Fox and Friends” this Sunday, Trump could personally shoot James Fields, the 20-year-old suspect who drove a car into a group of protesters, killing one and injuring many others.

“If Donald Trump has suddenly jumped on Marine One … down to Charlottesville, walked into the jail where the young man was being held, shot him between the eyes, I guarantee you people said he didn’t use the right caliber bullet,” he said, noting that liberals “cannot get over the fact he is president.”

Trump, Huckabee said, was “explicitly clear in condemning what happened and the fact was he will never satisfy those who hate his every word.”

The Daily Caller observed that Navarro’s rant “was beyond the pale even for CNN, leaving host John Berman nearly speechless.”  Nevertheless, incidents like this are part of the reason CNN is now seen by many as the least-trusted name in network news, according to a study reported on by the Washington Free Beacon in January.
