A Monday debate between CNN’s Ana Navarro and Jason Miller about the White House Correspondents’ Dinner quickly devolved into personal attacks and heckling.
CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota and Navarro accused Miller of hypocrisy for criticizing Michelle Wolf’s jokes about Sarah Sanders at the WHCD, but not criticizing the president for his own personal attacks on women.
Miller admitted that he wishes Trump would stick to policy debates as opposed to insults, but added that the WHCD was disgusting and has been abandoned even by leftist celebrities.
“That’s because no real celebrities wanna show up and rub elbows with the Trump folks,” Navarro interjected. “I mean, that’s why the celebrities aren’t showing up — you guys aren’t all that funny and good to hang out with.”
“It becomes so personal,” Miller retorted. “Why does everything have to get so personal?”
Navarro alleged that people made it “personal” when they focused on Wolf’s comments about Sarah Sanders rather than her remarks about CNN and Ted Kennedy, and accused Miller of refusing to stand up for other people that have been attacked. Miller tried to respond, but Navarro continued to loudly talk over him.
“Alisyn has given you all the chances in the world to be consistent!” Navarro shrieked. “I’ll tell you what Jason, welcome to the snowflake club. How does it feel?”
“I don’t even know what to say,” Miller responded. “When you don’t have an argument you go to the personal attacks.”
