CNN Panel Devolves Into Shouting Match About 'P***y'

"Don’t tell me you’re offended when I say 'pussy,' but you’re not offended when Donald Trump says it!"

WASHINGTON ― Well? What’s left to do in this presidential campaign except shout about women’s hoohas?

Ana Navarro, a Republican CNN contributor, went ahead and took care of that early Saturday. Hours after a bombshell video surfaced of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump making lewd comments about women ― he talked about grabbing women “by the pussy,” among other things ― Navarro tore into Republicans still standing by him.

“I think that every single Republican is going to have to answer the question, ‘What did you do the day you saw the tape of this man boasting about grabbing a woman’s pussy?’” Navarro said angrily. “Period.”

That was too much raunch for fellow panelist Scottie Nell Hughes, a Trump surrogate, who chided Navarro for using the “p” word.

“Will you please stop saying that word?” Hughes said. “My daughter is listening.”

That did NOT go over well with Navarro.

“You know what Scottie? Don’t tell me you’re offended when I say ‘pussy,’ but you’re not offended when Donald Trump says it!” Navarro shouted at Hughes. “I’m not running for president. He is.”

Hughes tried to interject, but Navarro kept going.

“Don’t act outraged and offended when I say the word that you’re not offended by the man who you are supporting for president is saying,” Navarro continued. “That is absurd.”

“I said I was offended by him saying that too,” Hughes said quietly.

Here’s a video of their exchange:

The show had to go to commercial break, but not before Navarro ended the segment with an agitated, “Mmmm.” When the show came back, she was missing from the panel. 

She tweeted soon after that she was going to bed.

The best thing that came from the segment may be this Vine video of panelists’ reactions to Navarro’s tirade. It doesn’t get old.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
