Ana Navarro: Sen. Rubio Stays Silent About Racism, Kids In Cages While ‘Tweeting Bible Verses Every Day’

“The View” co-host and former Republican strategist Ana Navarro ripped into Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Friday after he labeled politicians and press “self righteous hypocrites” for demanding outrage over President Trump’s racist tweets telling four congresswomen of color to “go back” to their “crime infested” home countries.

“I have seen Marco Rubio, whose parents came here fleeing poverty, who represents a community where they were told, ‘We won’t rent to Cubans, to blacks or to dogs,’ ‘You can’t drink from this water fountain,’ I have seen him try to justify this,” Navarro said of Rubio’s comments.

“I’ve seen him call people who are outraged, like me, he calls it ‘self righteous hypocrites,’” Navarro continued.

“Let me tell you what self-righteous hypocrisy is: tweeting Bible verses every day and remaining silent while this president puts children in cages,” she continued.

“You know what self-righteous hypocrisy is? Representing a community full of Venezuelans and Cubans and Haitians and Puerto Ricans, people who hear every day, ‘Go back to where you’re from,’ and somehow trying to play this as if there are two sides,” she said.

Navarro’s comments came in response to a Thursday tweet from the Florida senator in which he took aim at “left wing politicians & many in the media” for demanding outrage over Trump’s racist “go back” home attacks.

“The tweet was wrong & the chant last night grotesque,” Rubio said in the tweet before adding, “The left wing politicians & many in the media demanding outrage are self righteous hypocrites.”

“And the ‘outrage & response cycle’ allows for only 2 sides & demands you pick or else,” he also said in the tweet. “It’s a stupid game that I refuse to play.”
