Ana Navarro Blasts Magazine For Calling Out Her ‘Expensive’ Wedding Gifts: ‘I’m So Shamed’
CNN commentator Ana Navarro fired back at a report on Tuesday that called out her “expensive” wedding registry.
“Wedding registries reveal expensive tastes of Florida’s leading Never Trumpers,” blares the headline of a Washington Examiner story, out just days after Navarro’s star-studded wedding.
It includes some choice entries on 47-year-old Navarro’s registry, set up in light of her marriage to Al Cardenas, 71. From the Examiner:
Among the gifts people bought the couple were “Michael Aram Palm Cocktail Napkin Holders” ($65), “sustainably sourced” striped pool towels at $39.50, a dozen “Villeroy & Boch Buffet Plate Mandarin Chargers ($89.99 each), three “Squared Zen Melamine Large Green Leaf Platter” ($46 each) and a “Bedgear Dri-Tec King Sheet Set” at $248.99. The most expensive item still visible was a tall black “Pedestal Planter” at $379 and Macy’s tableware totaled $6328.08.
Navarro fired back at the report on Twitter, fact-checking its claim that Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) was in attendance, and mocking their gripe with her Pottery Barn towels.
1. Sen. Menendez is my friend, not client. He wasn’t at wedding. Was at a funeral in NJ
2. I didn’t sell rights to wedding
3. $39 towels from Pottery Barn sound so “lavish”. Oooh. I’m so shamed
4. Yes. I support gay rights. ??♀️ https://t.co/Y1rUMzT20E

The Examiner described Navarro and Cardenas as “virulently anti-Trump” with “close connections to Jeb Bush.” It was not well received, with even opponents of Navarro calling out the report for having no news value.
This is a garbage article with zero news value and the Examiner should be embarrassed to have published it. And I have an extremely low opinion of Ana Navarro. https://t.co/yySHROKuKK
