CNN contributor Ana Navarro filed her nails in a show of blatant disrespect during a segment while on “Cuomo Primetime” on CNN as fellow CNN contributor Steve Cortes.
As Cortes was trying to describe the crimes and crime rate due to illegal immigrants and cited reports that conflict with the left’s narrative that the illegal alien crime rates aren’t anything to be worried about. While Cuomo flatly denied that any such reports exist — they do — Navarro made a show of sighing loudly, then pulled out her nail fail and began to attend to her nails for a moment.
“It’s fake news for you to inject BS and say that it’s equal to the real data,” Cuomo said of Cortes’s point..
“It’s not BS,” Cortes replied. “Even if I were to grant you that, okay, the point is the illegal alien crime rate should be zero.”
After Navarro began doing her nails, Cortes took a shot at her disrespectful gesture.
“You can do your nails,” Cortes told Navarro. “You know who can’t do their nails are people who have been killed, Ana, by dangerous known illegal aliens who have been allowed to stay in this country because of the leftist policies that people like you promote in so-called sanctuary cities.”
Navarro then complained that she was tired of being labeled a leftist, but Cortes didn’t care.
“I don’t care if you’re tired of it. Go back to filing your nails,” Cortes said.

That Navarro, a leftist, would be this disrespectful of the dead and that CNN would be this okay with it doesn’t speak well for the network, and it absolutely does no favors to Navarro’s side of the argument. It’s especially a gut punch to anyone who has suffered due to the activity of illegal immigrants, doubly so if someone has had a family member who lost their life due to an illegal migrant.
Navarro doesn’t seem to care, nor want to hear about it, and will sarcastically blow anyone off who brings it up with a nail file and a smug look.
