CNN’s Ana Navarro calls Trump a ‘crazy, lunatic, 70-year-old man-baby’

CNN conservative pundit Ana Navarro did not mince words Thursday when Wolf Blitzer asked for her thoughts on President Trump’s tweets attacking MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski’s appearance.

“When I first saw the tweet this morning I was frankly disgusted. I thought to myself, ‘This dude has got such a fixation with women and blood. What is wrong with him?'” Navarro said. “And then you remember this dude, this disgusting dude, is the president of the United States. And you realize just how much he is diminishing the presidency of the United States.

“You realize what he is doing is not just acting for Donald Trump, he’s acting for all of us,” the frequent Trump critic continued. “He’s acting [as] our president. And he is embarrassing. He is shameful. He is disgusting.”

Earlier Thursday, Trump lashed out at Brzezinski with an unusually harsh personal attack aimed at both her and Joe Scarborough.

“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore),” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”



Several congressional Republicans condemned the tweets. But Navarro criticized some for not speaking out louder against Trump’s remarks. House Speaker Paul Ryan would only say the tweets weren’t “appropriate.”

“I’m really tired of hearing words like ‘disappointed,’ like ‘disturbed,’ like ‘I’m bothered,’ like ‘I wish he wouldn’t do it,’” Navarro said. “It’s time that somebody looks at the camera and looks at him and calls him up says, ‘Listen, you crazy, lunatic, 70-year-old man-baby, stop it. You are now the president of the United States. The commander in chief. And you need to stop acting like a mean girl. Because we just won’t take it. We won’t vote with you. We won’t work with you.'”

She added: “I can’t start talking about tax reform. I can’t start talking about health care reform because I can’t get past the fact that we have a president who lacks the sufficient character. We have a president who is mean. We have a president who is nasty. We have a president who is immature, who is unstable, and who just acts like a crazy person with anybody who attacks him because he has thin skin, and he is never going to pivot.”


Navarro also ripped those in Trump’s inner circle, including the first lady, for “enabling” him.

“Anybody around him, whether it’s his daughter, his chief of staff, his wife — who I remind you, has said her signature issue was going to be fighting against online bullying — or any Republican on the Hill: Stop enabling him,” she said. “Confront this and confront this hard. Or it will never stop and it will embarrass all of us. It will take the presidency low, low, low.”

Blitzer asked Navarro what advice she would offer to President Trump to “fix this.”

“Stop,” she replied. “Look, if you can’t control your tweeting habits, stop tweeting. Go seek therapy. Go knit. Find a hobby. Talk to your wife. Do anger management. You’ve got to realize once and for all you are no longer just Donald Trump. You are no longer just speaking for Trump Tower, the Trump brand, Trump Hotels and Trump Steaks. You are speaking for an entire country.”
