Republican Ana Navarro Says Shifty Trump Can 'Hold More Positions Than the Kama Sutra'

When it comes to the trade war, conservative Erik Erikson notes that White House trade adviser Peter Navarro (no relation to CNN's Ana Navarro) has figured out how to manipulate Trump and managed to issue tariffs.


“The only consistent thing about Donald Trump is his inconsistency,” Ana Navarro said. “We saw him do it with immigration. We saw him do it with guns. We saw him do it with barring gays from the military. The guy can hold more positions than the Kama Sutra!”

Crowder explained that Trump’s base probably doesn’t understand these issues either, so it likely won’t matter to them.

He then said that he’s spent his entire life growing up poor, “when is it going to start trickling down?” he asked about Trump’s tax bill.

Bill Maher noted that the “great conservative experiment” has already been attempted in Kansas and it failed so bad that the state was downgraded by the S&P.

Erikson tired to say that the tactic has worked in the past, but Navarro cut in to say that was before Republicans decided they were no longer against spending. Now, with Trump, they want to cut taxes while increasing spending.

Navarro said that the short-term looks good, but that the jury is still out on the long-term effects.
