Kirsters Baish| The mainstream media seriously doesn’t even pretend to care these days. Case and point: CNN’s Ana Navarro and her disgusting nail-filing episode on Wednesday evening. While a Trump supporter spoke of crimes committed by illegal aliens, Navarro sat, on camera, filing away.
The Hill reports:
Steve Cortes, who served on Trump’s Hispanic Advisory Council, attempted during an appearance on CNN’s “Chris Cuomo Prime Time” to cite reports that call into question the argument that undocumented immigrants commit fewer crimes than American citizens before host Chris Cuomo accused him of injecting “fake news” into the conversation.
“It’s fake news for you to inject B.S. and say that it’s equal to the real data,” Cuomo stated.
Cortes answered, “It’s not B.S.” He continued, “Even if I were to grant you that, OK, the point is the illegal alien crime rate should be zero.”
Cortes continued speaking as three boxes appeared on the screen, Navarro filing her nails in one.
Cortes, who saw Navarro filing her nails, addressed her saying, “You can do your nails. You know who can’t do their nails are people who have been killed, Ana, by dangerous known illegal aliens who have been allowed to stay in this country because of the leftist policies that people like you promote in so-called sanctuary cities.”
It wasn’t too long before the entire segment totally went off-course as Cortes called Navarro a “de facto leftie.”
The Hill explains, “Navarro, who supported former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in the 2016 GOP presidential primary, is one of Trump’s most outspoken critics on cable news.”
“This is the most conservative president since Ronald Reagan,” Cortes told Navarro as she kept on talking over him. “He might be the most conservative president since Calvin Coolidge. So if you oppose the conservative policies of this president, you are de facto leftie.”
“He is not a conservative!” Navarro angrily retorted, after claiming to be a Republican “when Trump was a Democrat.”
“Do you think that having sex with a stripper is conservative values? Do you think cheating on the stripper with a Playboy bunny is conservative values?” she questioned.
The Hill reports, “The topic of immigration and the partial government shutdown has dominated cable news for the past three weeks. The shutdown, now in its 20th day, was sparked by an impasse over funding for a wall Trump has promised along the U.S.-Mexico border. The current shutdown is the second longest in U.S. history. The longest shutdown occurred in 1995 and 1996 during an impasse between President Clinton and Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.). That shutdown lasted from Nov. 14, 1995, through Jan. 6, 1996.”
Conservatives slammed Navarro over the nail-filing incident, which didn’t take long to go viral after the Drudge Report aired the clip.
On Thursday, the story of Navarro’s nail-filing episode made top hits on Twitter.
CNN isn’t a news operation. It’s a freak show. https://t.co/2oncw2TaKo

Ana Navarro is a pathetic actress on CNN, not a serious analyst. It's ridiculous that they even call her a "Republican Strategist"; I can't remember the last time she said anything positive about Republicans or conservatism. https://t.co/eVfVeUzemV
