Ana Navarro Is Exposing The GOP’s Double Standard Of Letting Trump Share Classified Information Without Consequence

@ananavarro / Twitter

Ana Navarro was one of the most outspoken Republican critics of President Trump’s campaign and ultimate election. Navarro, like many prominent Latinxs in politics, spoke openly about their disdain for how Trump was demonizing and insulting the Latinx community from the very beginning with his announcement speech calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. Since Trump’s victory, Navarro has offered constant sharply-worded criticisms of Trump and his administration. The latest Russia drama involving President Trump has not gone unnoticed by Navarro.

Republican political strategist Ana Navarro is calling out Congressional Republicans for not doing their job but rather toeing the party line.


The latest bombshell to come out of the White House is how President Trump invited Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, into the Oval Office with a photographer from a state-owned Russian news outlet. There is even speculation that the Russians, who are pretty gifted in espionage, could have slipped recording devices into the room with the U.S. president. No American press was allowed into the meeting, which has drawn its own ire from the American people and politicians. Since the meeting, it has been discovered that Trump shared highly classified information with the Russian representatives.

According to The Washington Post, the information was given to us by an ally with the long-held understanding that we would not be sharing this information with anyone else. The New York Times has further reported that the source of the information is Israel. The sharing of this information leaves the U.S. at risk of not being able to get necessary intel from the same source while also jeopardizing the lives of those involved with getting us the information in the first place. This prompted Navarro to call out all the GOP officials in Congress for not doing that job they are supposed to do that they would have quickly done if Clinton had made the same mistake: starting the impeachment process.

Despite denials from White House officials that Trump shared highly sensitive information, Trump himself owned up to it like only he can.


“I was in the room. It did not happen,” national security advisor H.R. McMaster told the press, according to The LA Times, before Trump’s early morning tweets.

Trump claims that he had the “absolute right” to share this information.


According to The Washington Post, a government official who knows the information said that Trump revealed “code-word” information, one of the highest classification levels in the U.S. government, with the Russian officials. This information is so sensitive that the same source told The Washington Post that it is information that we have yet to share with our own allies.

And Navarro’s Twitter shade didn’t end with just calling the GOP out for not doing their job. She straight up called them spineless.


People were living for Navarro’s Twitter attack.


That is really that only appropriate word for this level of political shade.

Her followers joined in on the trash talk.


S A V A G E !!

Others are hoping the that GOP will “rediscover their backbone.”


You know. It’s that thing that helps you stand up straight and connects to your skull. Yeah. That thing.

A few clever people started to give the unofficial spine search party a literary makeover.


#Genius

While others made mention of other body parts our representatives are missing.


Brutal.

This Mexican-American’s Tweet Went Viral For Repping Their Culture And Non-Binary Gender Expression

Charlie Peña is an 18-year-old non-binary Mexican-American in Houston, Texas who is showing the world how to own your identity, unapologetically. The Cypress Falls High School senior shared photos of a magnificent Mexican dress they* got at the swap meet and people are living. Peña spoke to mitú about the response the tweet has received and the validation they hope others like them get from seeing their tweet.

*Peña asked mitú to use their preferred pronouns they/their/them for the story.

“My original date could not make it so my best friend, Jenna, did a really cute proposal for me. I’m obsessed with RuPaul so it was cute,” Peña told mitú. “We were supposed to take pictures with our prom group but took so long to get ready. We ended up having to eat dinner at Taco Bell, which was totally fine.”

Peña recently went viral on Twitter with an unapologetic, non-binary, Chicanx pride post for prom.


Peña told mitú that they only recently started to use the term non-binary to express their gender identity. They are still getting used to the term but they feel much more comfortable with it now then late last year when they first started to use the term.

But what does non-binary mean? Don’t worry. Peña has an explanation.

“Being non-binary means that I do not identify myself with the male/female binary. I am genderfluid, which means that my gender identity varies over time,” Peña told mitú. “I don’t conform with a certain set of pronouns, either. She/They/He, I don’t mind. However, that doesn’t mean that other people who identify as non-binary feel the same way. It all depends on the person and what they’re comfortable with.”

Peña also made an impact by channeling their Mexican culture via their prom dress which they got at a swap meet.

“A lot of kids at my school make fun of it for being ‘ghetto’ or ‘too chunti.’ I like to go because there’s a lot to look at, and honestly I can’t find good quality huaraches anywhere else,” Peña told mitú. “I remember walking around with my mom looking for a fruit stand and seeing the full dress on a mannequin. I looked at my mom and I told her, ‘That’s it, ese es mi vestido.’ I tried it on and I knew it was the one. I bought it on the spot.”

Peña admits that some people questioned whether it was a good idea to wear that dress to prom. Peña responded with a resounding “sí.”

And for Peña, it was all about owning up to their culture and loving everything that makes them them.

Although there are always haters, Peña garnered lots of support for her tweet.

Peña told mitú that they were surprised at all the positive responses they got for their tweet. As for the occasional haters, they pay them no mind because they say they know their worth, their value, and it took them too long to get to the level of confidence they have to let some salty strangers bring them down.

Seriously, people could not get enough of Peña’s unapologetic proclamation to the Twitterverse.


“[I’m] genuinely surprised more than anything,” they told mitú about their tweet going viral. “I hadn’t been feeling my best that day, so the responses were really reassuring.”

“I hope those like me can see me and feel represented in some way,” Peña told mitú.

Peña knows what it is like to not see yourself represented in media as non-binary and hopes that their tweet can help others find that validation.

Peña’s choice of dress is all about them showcasing what they find beautiful.


“I find beauty in tradition. Although I loved the idea of getting super glam in a ball gown, it’s not really me. I like to honor my culture when it comes to events like this. We are living in times where our political climate is making it really difficult for Latinxs,” Peña told mitú. We are stigmatized in the media by our president. … We are people that deserve respect. By wearing the traditional dress that I did, I felt as if I was making that statement. I represent my people and our customs to make sure that we are seen.”
