Former Trump campaign operative Steve Cortes should have known better than to go on any CNN program headed-up by Pudd’nhead Cuomo.
Without fail, in the rare case of CNN actually inviting someone from within Trump’s inner-circle, CNN will decidedly stack the deck against them.
Predictably, Cuomo ensured CNN’s own version of MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, Ana Navarro, would double-team with him against Cortes.
In what was suppose to be a scholarly discussion between the three regarding President Trump’s efforts to erect a wall structure on the nation’s southern border, the segment quickly degraded into a rather bizarre back-and-forth between Cortes and Cuomo.
For his part, Cuomo steadfastly (and rather childishly) argued against the reality of at least some solid, factual evidentiary studies that Cortes cited were done showing that there have been at least some cases of increased criminality differences between legitimate US citizens and legal aliens, and those who entered the United States illegally.
Like I alluded to, the discussion went down hill rather quickly.
First of all, Cuomo referred to a specific study that Cortes cited as “BS” (I’m surprised Cuomo didn’t call Cortes “a big poo-poo head”), but when Cortes finally got a chance to speak, Navarro threw quite of disrespect towards him by rolling her eyes and filing her nails.
Personally, I’ve seen hood-rats who sell their bodies to the highest bidders for a bit of rock conduct themselves with more class than Cuomo and Navarro.
Navarro’s first big league gig was as a member of the transition team for Florida governor Jeb Bush in 1998. Then she finagled a job as the national co-chair of the Hispanic Advisory Council first for John McCain in 2008, then moving on to Jon Huntsman Jr. in his short-lived attempt at the White House in 2012.
In her final gasp at insider relevancy, Navarro saddle-up again with her old boss, Jeb Bush during his miserable failure of his 2016 presidential campaign.
In 2013, Navarro hit the public spotlight while appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, where she claimed that working mothers are the real go-getters, while stay-at-home mothers are little more than “kept women” who “want to lean back and be on a rocking chair drinking a mint julep.”
Navarro went on to work at ABC News, then eventually to CNN, where she is now the token Republican talking head court jester-in-residence.
