WATCH: CNN's Ana Navarro Shreds Trump Supporter Jason Miller's Blatant Hypocrisy on Michelle Wolf

Republican strategist Ana Navarro on Monday shredded Trump supporter Jason Miller for attacking comedian Michelle Wolf while brushing off past controversial statements made by President Donald Trump.


When asked by CNN’s Alisyn Camerota for her take on Wolf’s performance, Navarro gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up.

“I say to Michelle Wolf, ‘Hallelujah, girl, you should be the one getting the Nobel Peace Prize,'” she said. “She has been able to get Trump supporters to go on TV and defend women from being skewered and offended for their looks.”

Navarro then pointed out all the times Trump supporters have told women to not be so offended when the president attacked women’s appearances — and she marveled at how outraged they were on behalf of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“It’s not supposed to be serious when President Trump does it,” she said. “But it’s supposed to be dead serious — let’s all clutch our pearls! — when a comedian does it. Give me a damn break.”

Trump supporter Jason Miller tried to claim that it was different when Trump insulted women because he was just speaking “bluntly” and telling people what was really on his mind.

“Sometimes I have disagreed with what the president has said and wished he would have phrased things differently,” he said. “I think it is two completely different things. I think the president speaks very bluntly. He voices his opinion.”

Navarro would not let this fly, however, as she pointed out that Trump was making disparaging comments about people during the White House press dinner while hosting a campaign rally in Michigan.

“Hispanics were getting booed at his rally!” she said. “People were going after the media and calling them ‘filth’ and saying ‘Get out of our country!'”
