It’s no secret that President Donald Trump is in the midst of an all-out social media blitz against CNN, the network that Project Veritas has exposed for pushing admitted fake news for ratings. However, a frequent CNN commentator has gone on the record to claim that the president’s war of words could prove fatal.
Republican strategist and vehement anti-Trump personality Ana Navarro appeared on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday to discuss – what else – one of Trump’s tweets. This one showed Trump wrestling a CNN logo with the hashtags #FraudNewsCNN and #FNN.

According to Navarro, the lighthearted tweet, which has since been liked and retweeted hundreds of thousands of times, is dangerous and violent.
“I must say I think it’s unacceptable,” she complained. “As the president of the United States taking things way too far. It is an incitement to violence. He is going to get somebody killed in the media. Maybe that will stop him.”
Navarro later blasted the Trump administration by claiming that they are not principled or courageous enough to stop the president from posting “offensive” tweets.
“You can’t say the difference between right and wrong,” she said. “That’s what’s part of the problem. He is surrounded by enablers that do nothing but shake their heads and nod their heads in agreement with everything he says. They have got to stop.”
“They have got to stand for democracy and for freedom of the press. This is just going way too far. The president of the United States is inciting violence against the free press and America. We cannot stand for it,” Navarro concluded.
While she ostensibly works as a GOP operative, Navarro has emerged as a prominent critic of Trump and the Republican party during her appearances on ABC News and CNN. She voted for Hillary Clinton in Florida when she learned how close Trump was to winning the state.
