CNN’s “conservative” commentator, Ana Navarro-Cardenas, visited the ladies of ABC’s “The View” on Friday.
A clip of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) being questioned about his medical records at a recent Democratic debate was played. Sanders defends his campaign’s efforts at transparency and then points to Bloomberg and says, “You have two stents as well.”
Bloomberg replies that he’s had them for 25 years.
The group found it amusing that Bernie was such a “little snitch.”
Navarro-Cardenas said, “Can you imagine how ridiculous it is? Democrats, I am begging you to get your s**t together so I can vote for one of you. We got two of the candidates debating over who had more heart attacks. Stop debating that.”
Despite appealing to “Democrats” to get their s**t together, Navarro-Cardenas’ criticism was focused only on Bernie. She continued:
And Bernie, maybe, just maybe – because I’m from Miami – stop apologizing and telling me there’s a bright side to a dictator like Fidel Castro. There is not…Fidel Castro is a dictator. Fidel Castro is a thug. He is a murderer. So why is he trying to find a bright side to a dead dictator?
And he’s harming the two congresswomen, the Democrat congresswomen, Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, who do not deserve to have to deal with the backlash of a Democratic candidate apologizing for Fidel Castro.
If anyone expected her to go on and start bashing the others, they would have been mistaken.
There was generalized criticism from the others on the panel about how the candidates in general argued among each other during the last debate, and about their advanced ages, but their only specific attacks were aimed at Bernie.
I think this is what we can expect to be hearing from now on. Unless some unforeseen event occurs to change the current trajectory of the race, Bernie Sanders, a socialist, will win the Democratic nomination.
And the Democratic Party is trying to find a way to prevent it.
It will be fun to watch.
SHOULD CANDIDATES RELEASE ALL MEDICAL INFO? Michael Bloomberg released new heart health information and called on Sen. Bernie Sanders to do the same – we question how transparent candidates should be about their health. https://t.co/cVclFZQmjA pic.twitter.com/luu7qyjRQy
