Ana Navarro Hits Oscars for Not Being Political Enough: ‘I Wanted More Trump Jokes’
Early Monday morning, we posted a recap of just some of the moments when Sunday night’s Oscars got political. The show was certainly not lacking in political material.
Still, Ana Navarro thought it could have used some more.
Serving as guest co-host on The View Monday, the CNN political commentator said the Oscars left her wanting more in terms of jokes or commentary against President Donald Trump and the NRA.
“I actually was watching for more Trump jokes, more NRA messages, more of that stuff,” Navarro said. “I can’t stand Trump. I was actually disappointed.”
Navarro believes that all of the talk before the ceremony about just how political it would be ended up reducing the amount of political content on the show.
“I think a lot of people, even before the Oscars began, were already talking about how insufferable the Oscars were going to be because they were going to be so political,” Navarro said. “There was a lot of preamble to the Oscars…if you don’t want to listen to any of that, watch something else.”
She added, “I found it kind of let me down. I wanted more Trump jokes. I wanted more Mike Pence jokes.”
