Things That Matter

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.

After Racist Chants At A Trump Rally Directed At Rep. Omar, Cardi B Has Come Out Supporting The Congresswoman

After Racist Chants At A Trump Rally Directed At Rep. Omar, Cardi B Has Come Out Supporting The Congresswoman

As President Trump continues to lead a national racist attack on progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar, Cardi B showed her support for the Minnesota congresswoman with a simple Instagram post.

Within hours, #IStandWithIlhan was trending on Twitter, with public figures and fellow politicians weighing in.

Cardi B was one of the very first people to show her support for Omar.

In typical badass fashion, the “Press” singer quoted Beyonce when posting in support of Omar on Instagram, sharing a photo and writing, “You know you that b**** when you cause all this conversation.”

This is not the first time this week Cardi B, born Belcalis Almánzar, has weighed in on politics. The Bronx-born rapper tweeted Tuesday that she was “really sad” that Democratic voters “let down” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) during the 2016 presidential primary.

She wrote that the senator has “been fighting for equal rights, HUMAN rights for such along time.”

“Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign,” she added.

Cardi B’s appreciation post comes after a disgusting rally where Trump continued with his racist rhetoric.

Trump held a “Make America Great Again” rally in Greeneville, North Carolina. During the rally, Trump continued to rant against Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressly and Rashia Tlaib, who have become known as “the squad.”

“Let ’em leave… they’re always telling us how to run it, how to do this, how to do that. You know what? If they don’t love it, tell ’em to leave it,” Trump said of the congresswomen.

Although Trump spent time going after each woman individually, only his attack on Omar elicited an offensive chant from the crowd.

“Omar smeared U.S. service members in ‘Black Hawk Down.’ She slandered the brave Americans trying to keep peace in Somalia,” Trump said of Omar.

Trump paused his speech to let the chant continue.

The president also claimed Omar blamed America for the economic crisis in Venezuela and she refused to condemn Al Qaeda. As the president ripped into Omar, people in the crowd began chanting “send her back” in the same way that they chanted “lock her up” during his campaign against Hillary Clinton.

After, Omar responded to the chants at the rally by tweeting, “I am where I belong, at the people’s house and you’re just gonna have to deal!” along with a photo of her on the House floor.

Cardi B fans have been stanning extra hard after her post.

To see this strong woman of color come to defend one of Trump’s most vocal opponents sent me any people into a frenzy. Her tweet was simple yet totally summed up what so many of us are thinking and feeling.

I mean she quoted the Queen Bey in her post. Like OMG.

That is some mad stanning right there. Quoting Beyonce lyrics to support a woman of color suffering racist attacks from the President of the United States and his supporters…it doesn’t get more powerful than that.

Cardi B’s favored presidential candidate always weighed in on Trump’s remarks about Omar.

Cardi B has been pretty vocal about her support of Bernie Sanders for president. She recently said about Bernie, “Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign.”

A Viral Tweet Claims Disney Took The Story Of ‘Coco’ From A Family In Mexico And There Is A Lot Of Debate

A Viral Tweet Claims Disney Took The Story Of ‘Coco’ From A Family In Mexico And There Is A Lot Of Debate

There is a viral tweet by an aspiring YouTuber in Wisconsin is making the rounds on social media claiming that Disney took the story of “Coco” from a family in Santa Fe de la Laguna, Quiroga, Michoacán, Mexico. While the woman pictured in the tweet and the character of Mama Coco is very similar, there is a lot of doubt about the tweet’s accuracy. It seems like the tweet is a good example of not believe everything you hear or see on social media as pure fact.

A viral tweet is claiming that Disney created characters based on the appearance of a family in Mexico and hasn’t compensated them.

The two are very similar in appearance, obviously. The viral success of the tweet proves that people are willing to believe that this happened. Many are even sharing their own photos showing that they met the woman in Mexico after traveling there due to the success of “Coco.”

Others claim to have met another woman in the same town who is the inspiration for Mama Elena.

Creatives who worked on “Coco” did exhaustive research to make sure they got the movie right. It is crucial that corporations portray cultures and cultural events right in the 21st century. There is hypersensitivity and a strong expectation for companies to do their due diligence to guarantee that culturally relevant materials are done correctly. In that vein, Disney/Pixar did send people to Mexico to research and study up on the customs surrounding Día de los Muertos.

They did visit places in Mexico and there are moments in the film where you see recreations of structures they encountered on their trip. Disney has never denied visiting places in Mexico to do research and that parts of the film are inspired by things they have seen. However, according to responses to the tweet, there are a lot of people who think Disney did more than just get inspired by these places and the people.

The tweet caught the attention of co-director Lee Unkrich.

The accusations have really caught fire on Twitter with little to no information backing claims. While the tweet claims the family was not compensated, Disney denies it was based on the family despite the striking similarities. There is also no evidence presented that the family nor people in the town that were interviewed signed contracts for compensation from Disney.

The daughter of animator Daniel Arriaga took to Twitter to combat the narrative she says is false.

Twitter users responded to Alyssa claiming that it doesn’t matter and that the families should be compensated for the interviews and information obtained.

Another man shared a photo in 2017 showing that his grandmother was the woman they based Mama Elena on.

“For those of you who read my previous post about Coco…here is my abuela,” Brandon Guzman posted on Facebook two years ago. “It was her who they modeled the Abuela with the chancla in the movie after!! I’m a proud grandson!! #Pixar #Disney #Coco #LatinosInHollywood”

However, the person who originally posted the viral tweet is using the similarities in the movie and locations to push their point.

There is no denying that some bits of Mexico made it into the movie. However, it can be argued that it was done to further the authenticity of the movie and the storyline for people wanting to see themselves represented.

There is no winning or losing this argument as people will believe what they want.

Despite people who worked on or related to those who worked on denying the story, the rumor of Disney causing harm to a community in Mexico.

Those standing up for Disney are calling attention to the dangers of believing everything you see on the internet.

There have been multiple instances of people blindly believing things that are posted on social media. The lack of necessary fact-checking before posting has led to misinformation spreading unchecked on social media. It is up to the users to make sure that they do their own research and determine what is true or not. As for this story, it seems the internet will forever be torn over the validity of the claims made.
