CNN’s Ana Navarro Deletes Tweet About Jussie Smollett ‘Attack’
A CNN commentator who rushed to blame “homophobic” MAGA supporters after Jussie Smollett orchestrated a hate-crime against himself has quietly deleted evidence of her wrongful accusations.
“I saw Jussie Smollett in Miami last week,” Ana Navarro said on Twitter shortly after the Smollett “attack.”
“I can’t believe this happened. It is sad and disgusting and deplorable,” she said, borrowing Hillary R. Clinton’s nickname for supporters of President Donald J. Trump.
The rest of the Tweet shared the partial title of the original TMZ piece on the attack, but Navarro shifted the words to definitively place the blame on “MAGA Supporters,” despite the fact that those were only allegations.
Now that we know that all of the allegations made by Smollett and spread by Trump-hating rubes like Navarro are false, the press is backpedaling.
Navarro quietly deleted her incorrect Tweet. A search for the terms “homophobic MAGA” and “Smollett” on her account return no results.
Sunday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), deleted her Tweet in support of Smollett, also providing no explanation.
Navarro is one of CNN’s token “Republicans.” She is a card-carrying member of the #NeverTrump movement who voted for Clinton in 2016 who is often billed as a “Republican strategist,” despite the fact that she has not been paid to strategize for Republicans since 2012.
Recently, she disrespectfully filed her nails during a CNN segment while another guest discussed crimes committed by illegal aliens.
