CNN Panel Devolves Into Chaos: Ana Navarro Does Her Nails as Steve Cortes Shouts About Murder

A contentious debate on Cuomo Primetime devolved into nail filing and heated crosstalk Wednesday night.

And it was all over the crime rate among undocumented immigrants.

Host Chris Cuomo along with panelists Ana Navarro and Steve Cortes were talking about studies about criminality and those who enter the country illegally.

Cortes claimed that there were studies supporting his point about undocumented immigrant crime.

“It’s fake news for you to inject BS and say that it’s equal to the real data,” he said.

That is when Ana Navarro sighed and pulled out a nail file to start to do her nails.

“It’s not BS! Cortes shot back. “Even if I were to grant you that, okay, the point is the illegal alien crime rate should be zero.”

Then turning to Navarro, he scolded: “You can do your nails. 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.”

“I’m so tired of you calling me leftist already just because you want to compromise your values,” Navarro snapped back.

“I don’t care if you’re tired of it,” Cortes replied. “Go back to filing your nails.”

From there, it just devolved into talking over one another and Cuomo telling Cortes to get off his “soapbox.”
