CNN’s Ana Navarro nearly burst into tears during a temper tantrum on Monday night over GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham working with President Donald Trump.
During an appearance on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” Navarro lost her mind when asked about Graham siding with Trump more and more.
“Lindsey has been a friend of mine for so many years. I used to be able to pick up the phone and talk to Lindsey any time I wanted. He hasn’t picked up the phone in a long time, so I’m going to use your show to talk to him,” Navarro began, with her voice cracking as if she was holding back tears.
She then really lost it:
When I see what has become of Lindsey Graham right now, it hurts my heart. It hurts my heart because this is not Lindsey Graham I know. Like Senator Manchin, I too don’t recognize him. I know, he is a man who loves his country, who is a patriot, who has served his country. I am proud and grateful for his service but I am hoping that Lindsey Graham realizes that he is not serving this country well. He’s not serving the constitution well. He is not serving the memory of John McCain well.
Ask himself, “what would John McCain do in this moment?” You know, he is not in Congress, he’s not in the U.S. Senate to be Donald Trump’s accomplice, Donald Trump’s lawyer, Donald Trump’s defender and adviser, a legal adviser for Donald Trump Jr. He is there to represent the people of South Carolina. He is there to defend the U.S. Constitution.
“Lindsey, go back to being Lindsey. I feel like it’s an episode of [Invasion of] the Body Snatchers. That horrible sci-fi movie from the 1970s,” she begged.
Towards the end of the segment, Navarro pleaded with Graham to call her so she could apparently save him: “Lindsey, if you have an issue with anything I’m saying, you know my number, baby. Give me a call, because I’ve got to talk to you.”
How weird is it to see Navarro, who claims to be a Republican, begging a Republican lawmaker (Graham) not to work with a Republican president (Trump)?
Navarro often uses her air time on CNN to make a scene.
Earlier this year, Navarro rolled her eyes and literally filed her nails during a live segment when another guest mentioned Americans killed by illegal aliens.
