CNN political commentator Ana Navarro made a weak attempt at bashing President Donald Trump’s White House on “New Day” Friday and used the fast food chain McDonald’s to validate her point.
Navarro was debating Trump surrogate Steve Cortes about the supposed “chaos” brewing within the White House and how the mainstream media has covered it.
“I have to tell you that contrary to the reporting on this show and on many networks, it’s not a White House in chaos. As a matter of fact, there’s incredible exuberance about the results of policy, consumer confidence at a 17-year high. Small business optimism at an all time high,” Cortes said. “The tax cuts are real. Gorsuch is on the court. Record number of circuit court judges already confirmed. So there’s amazing progress already in this year-plus of the Trump White House. And this idea that there’s chaos, I just think it’s not commensurate with the reality I see in the White House.”
“I think in New York newsrooms there’s a lot of almost titillation with the comings and goings of the White House. But I think in America, people are a lot more focused on their pocketbooks, their security, their prosperity,” he added.
Host Chris Cuomo chimed in to rebut Cortes and said the turnover rate for White House staff has been unprecedented.
“I’ve never seen talent bleed out of a White House, out of a statehouse the way we’ve had there,” Cuomo said. “That’s a fact.”
“Honey, I’ve never seen it bleed out of a Mcdonald’s the way it bleeds out of this White House,” Navarro said. “The turnover is crazy.”
