Ana Navarro Shames Republicans Who Are ‘Too Damn Cowardly’ to Call Out Trump by Name

In solidarity with their co-host, Meghan McCain, the hosts of “The View” are condemning President Donald Trump for attacking her father, the late Sen. John McCain. But co-host Ana Navarro took her criticism a step forward and asked why Republican lawmakers are staying quiet.

“The reason they are not speaking is because they are spineless, and they are afraid of [Trump],” Navarro said Thursday. “Because they think he is like Lord Voldemort and if they mention his name, he will come down and strike them dead politically.”

Many Republican lawmakers have made statements about McCain in the days since Trump restarted his feud against the late senator. But few have condemned the president himself.

“I have all this week heard about people and seen people going on TV and people making statements about their good friend, John McCain. The man they revered, John McCain. National hero John McCain,” Navarro continued.

“But most of them — with some notable exceptions like Mitt Romney and Johnny Isakson — have been too damn cowardly to call out the guy making the attacks,” she added. “So they are enabling him. The silence and complicity of the Republican Party is enabling Donald Trump, cheapening the White House and the presidency.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) did make reference to Trump to reporters Wednesday in response to his McCain comments, but the South Carolina senator held back his criticism.

“There’s no one I admire more than John McCain,” he said, adding that he was a good friend of the senator.

Watch the video below:

“I think the president’s comments about Senator McCain hurt him more than they hurt the legacy of Senator McCain,” he added. “I will try to continue to help the president.”

Navarro and her View-mates should be asking some of McStain’s former associates in the Navy about him rather than pounce on Trump for expressing facts.
