CNN political contributor Ana Navarro — along with a bevy of other journalists and major media outlets — accused President Donald Trump of calling “illegal immigrants ‘animals.’”

But even after CNN’s Chris Cuomo pointed out to Navarro on Thursday that Trump said his “animals” remark referred to the murderous gang MS-13, Navarro said that’s “not good enough.”
The Blaze reports,
The Nicaraguan-born journalist added during the interview that because of Trump’s reported “s**thole” remark in reference to Haiti and other nations, along with statements he’s made about immigrants, “he doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt.”
“It is a very slippery slope when you start dehumanizing people this way,” Narvarro continued. “It’s what the Nazis did. It’s what slave owners did. It’s not what Americans do.”
Navarro sent the same message on Twitter, saying “Trump is in very bad company” for his remark since Nazis referred to Jews as “rats” and slave owners viewed slaves as “sub-human animals.”
She added in her interview with Cuomo that Trump should “measure his words.”
Perhaps Navarro should take her own advice — or at least be a little more thoughtful about what else she posts on Twitter.
Because in October 2016 she tweeted that Trump should drop out of the presidential race — presumably over his hot-mic “grab ’em by the p***y” remark recorded on a bus in 2005 — and then she issued the magic word.
“He is an animal,” Navarro wrote in reference to Trump. “Apologies to animals.”
