Ana Navarro on Trump Tweet: I Didn't Say He Has Dementia

By    |   Thursday, 24 August 2017 10:12 AM

Ana Navarro defended a tweet about President Donald Trump this week, saying that she did not intend to imply that the president has dementia when she posted that such a diagnosis would be the "only possible defensible explanation" for his behavior.

Responding to Trump's rally in Phoenix on Tuesday night, the CNN political commentator took to Twitter to air her views, posting that the "only possible defensible explanation for Trump's disgusting, unpresidential, narcissistic behavior, would be early-on-set dementia. Maybe."

The following day, Navarro got into a debate on CNN's "New Day" with radio host Ben Ferguson over the tweet.

Ferguson said that it was "incredibly unfair" for Navarro to say Trump had dementia.

"I think people that criticize the president and they constantly say, 'well, he's unpresidential' or 'he's unhinged' or 'he is outside the realm.' The same people that are saying that are the ones that are tweeting things like 'I think the president has dementia' or 'I think it's time to unseat the president' or 'I think it's time to impeach him,'" he said. "If you don't like the president, it doesn't mean that you have to go to personal attacks or to somehow say that his mind is not sane. That's a very, very, very bitter thing to say."

Navarro defended herself stating that she had not said Trump had dementia in her tweet.

"What I said was that the only defensible excuse, the only defensible explanation is if he is not mentally well because if he is, then he is just such an incredible, self-centered, narcissistic, unfit jerk that it makes it that much worse," she said.

Navarros said his behaviour was not normal.

"I'm not a psychiatrist I am just a regular human being who knows a lot of people and who knows the difference between right and wrong, which is more than this 71-year-old man baby seems to be able to know."
