Ana Navarro on Sarah Sanders Restaurant Flap: There’s a ‘Cost to Being an Accomplice’ to ‘Cruel’ Trump WH
On CNN this afternoon, Ana Navarro said it’s not hard to understand why a restaurant might have asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave.
The White House press secretary said this morning she was kicked out over the fact she serves in the Trump administration:
Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so

Navarro said this afternoon people are clearly bothered to see President Trump “lie and lie and lie.” And while some people are offended by baking cakes for gay couples, she added, “some people find the idea of tearing children away from their families and then lying about it morally offensive.”
She said she does feel badly Huckabee Sanders’ family had to witness that, but also said, “You make choices in life. And there is a cost to being an accomplice to this cruel, deceitful administration.”
Former Congressman Jack Kingston, meanwhile, said this was outrageous and symptomatic of how Americans are becoming more and more divided and can’t come together with people they disagree with.
Navarro shot back that people should consider how emotional many feel about the Trump administration’s actions, especially this week. She noted she’s been berated by Trump supporters, but “it kind of comes with the territory” and “there is a cost to pay for the decisions you make in life.”
