15 Of Ana Navarro’s Most Savage Takedowns Of Donald Trump And His Supporters

This election season has been crazy. These are the two least liked candidates in political history, and one of them has built a campaign by attacking different groups of people. There have been questions about emails, tapes, affairs and past actions, both political and private. And in this madness/sh*tshow that we call the political process, there has been one bright spot: Ana Navarro. Navarrro, a Republican strategist who supported Jeb Bush till the bitter end, has spent the remainder of the political race not letting Donald Trump get away with his rhetoric unscathed.

Ana Navarro has been warning the country and Republicans about Donald Trump since the beginning and hasn’t slowed down.

Let’s get him some ice for that burn, shall we?

And she is not mincing her words about how she truly feels about him.


D R A G  H I M!

She has offered some advice to the Trump campaign to help them stay on their message.


?????

She has consistently been the Latino Republican voice of reason this year.

That’s just some of what she had to say about Trump accusing federal judge Gonzalo Curiel of not being able to do his job because of his Mexican heritage.

His 3 a.m. tweet storm immediately popped up on her radar.


And she tried to lead the country through some lamaze exercises to get through the rest of the year.

She even stood up for Alicia Machado when Trump brought up her past weight gain.

“There are a lot of women out there who are going to identify with a woman who eats under stress,” Navarro told Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany. “Not everybody is a size double zero. A lot of us have a digit in front of a zero … It is not helpful to have the guy who wants to be the president of the United States of America, including the president of overweight people like he is, to be bringing this up and relitigating it.”

Seriously, Navarro is not holding back when it comes to her thoughts on Trump.


Poor animals.

She has proved her savagery multiple times, like this incident when interrupted by Helen Aguirre Ferré.

Ferré was very outspoken against Trump on Twitter before she got a job with the Republican Nation Committee doing Latino Outreach. Once she got her RNC job, she went through and deleted all of her anti-Trump tweets, but Navarro is not one to forget such things.

She has no problem correcting Trump supporters on Twitter.


If you think that saying things like that is OK for a presidential candidate, but not OK for a private citizen, there’s a problem.

She also praised all the Republican politicians that are not getting the Trump seal of approval.

As she says, by him not endorsing those few politicians, it gives them chance to further their own careers when his tanks.

Most recently, she has led the charge against the #GropeGate excuses.

“To compare running for president to an erotic film or an erotic movie, an erotic novel, is crazy,” Navarro told staunch Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes. “If he wants to be held to that standard, great. Then go write “The Art Of The Groping,” but if you are running for President to the United States, then you are a role model. You are a role model for children like your daughter that you keep mentioning.”

Nor will she be told that people who still support Trump claim to be offended when she uses the same language he does.

She is letting the world know that Trump is not the embodiment of Republicans.

In the end, Navarro has a message for Trump about Latino support:

Navarro also wants the world to know that she unequivocally denounces her party’s nominee.

The Miami Herald Apologizes For Including Racist, Anti-Semitic Insert In Newspaper

The Miami Herald Apologizes For Including Racist, Anti-Semitic Insert In Newspaper

@BillCorben / Twitter

Readers of the Miami Herald and the El Nuevo Herald noticed a racist and anti-Semitic insert in one of the latest editions. The column in the insert compared BLM activists to Nazis while talking down about the Jewish community.

The Miami Herald recently published a racist and anti-Semitic insert.

The offensive piece, written by Cuban exile Roberto Luque Escalona, received harsh and immediate backlash. Escalona expresses his displeasure for the Jewish community and those seeking racial justice by joining BLM with one column.

“What kind of people are these Jews” writes Escalona. He then continues to “teach” Jewish people the history of the Holocaust and claims that BLM supporters are worse than the Nazis during Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, because the Nazis simply destroyed things and didn’t steal.

The newspaper has apologized for the insert going so far as to admit that it was not properly vetted and that “internal failures” were at play.

According to an open letter, higher ups at the Miami Herald admit to the insert not being read and vetted by the staff. The obvious overlook led to a 40-page insert of right-wing propaganda to be distributed to the readers of both the Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald. Since the publication, the Miami Herald claims to have ended their relationship with Libre, the insert with the racist and anti-Semitic content.

Those responsible at the Miami Herald admitted to not reading the insert before it was distributed.

“We are deeply sorry that inflammatory, racist and anti-Semitic commentary reached our el Nuevo Herald subscribers through LIBRE, a Spanish-language publication that paid our company to have the product printed and inserted into our print edition as a weekly supplement,” reads part of an open letter to readers. “The fact that no one in leadership, beginning with us, had previously read this advertising insert until this issue was surfaced by a reader is distressing. It is one of a series of internal failures that we are investigating in order to prevent this from ever recurring.”

Readers are outraged that the newspaper would allow such offensive things to be published and distributed.

The right-wing conspiracies pushed by Libre are part of a larger Spanish-language disinformation campaign targeting Cubans in southern Florida. The community has been inundated with disinformation ahead of the 2020 election preying on the fears and ignorance within the staunchly conservative Cuban community.

“It’s difficult to measure the effect exactly, but the polling sort of shows it and in focus groups it shows up, with people deeply questioning the Democrats, and referring to the ‘deep state’ in particular — that there’s a real conspiracy against the president from the inside,” Eduardo Gamarra, a pollster and director of the Latino Public Opinion Forum at Florida International University, told Politico. “There’s a strain in our political culture that’s accustomed to conspiracy theories, a culture that’s accustomed to coup d’etats.”

The disinformation is targeting Cubans because of the growing Latino communities who tend to vote Democratic.

According to Politico, the campaign is Cuban specific. The Puerto Rican, Nicaraguan, Colombian, Venezuelan, and Dominican communities in Florida, which continue to grow, typically vote Democratic. These shifting demographics have left Republicans doing anything it takes to keep a strong hold of the Cuban community, even by means of racism, anti-Semitism, and disinformation.

An Abuelo Got A Hurtful Note From Bad Neighbors About His Decorations And Latino Twitter Came Into Comfort Him

An Abuelo Got A Hurtful Note From Bad Neighbors About His Decorations And Latino Twitter Came Into Comfort Him

@goldenstef / Twitter

We are rarely more defensive than we are for our abuelos. The viejitos have always been there for us and seeing them treated unkindly is just heartbreaking. That is what one Twitter user experienced after her abuelo got a wretched note about his decorations outside his home.

This is the horrid letter left for @goldenstef’s abuelo by undesirable neighbors.

The letter, which is filled with misspelled words, calls the abuelo’s house an example of a “low class Mexican family.” The letter was written anonymously by neighbors and delivered to the abuelo in an attempt to shame him into changing his decorations. One of the most bizarre moments in the letter is when the angry author criticized the homeowner for having too many American flags claiming he isn’t patriotic and can’t fool the neighbors. Like, which one is it people?

The Twitter user followed up with photos of the house to show the decorations their abuelo has out front.

People flooded the Twitter post with comments supporting and sending love to the abuelo. Fellow Latinos are ready to stand with the abuelo and some just want the names of the people behind the letter so they can talk to them. Some people are stunned at how far the author was willing to go out of their way to be mean to an old man who just wants to decorate his home and front yard.

Latino Twitter wants to come together to let the abuelo know that his decorations are adorbs.

We need to come together to give her abuelo all of the wonderful decoration we love. Let’s turn his house and front yard into a showcase of all of the greatness that Latin America has to offer.

People are falling in love with this viejitos yard.

Honestly, this is a great yard. Who wouldn’t want a yard like this? This yard is original and adorable and worth all of the praise that we can muster. Thank you to people like this for making their yards something unique and worth seeing.

@goldenstef wants everyone to know just how much they appreciate the sweet messages about their abuelo’s yard.

It costs nothing to be kind. It is even better when you can be kind about something someone clearly cares so much about. Who cares if someone decorates their lawn a little too much. At least they are having fun with their lives and that is something we all need more of right now.
