CNN Republican commentator and Never Trumper Ana Navarro responded to a story from NewsBusters attacking whether she was truly a Republican because she had donated to Joe Biden’s campaign, per FEC records. “Damn right,” she said.
Per the records, Navarro donated $250 February 29 to Biden. NewsBusters further search found that she had also donated $361.14 to failed presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris in July 2019, and insisted that she quit identifying herself as a Republican.
Navarro hasn’t been quiet about wanting Trump to be defeated in 2020, so her donating to Democratic candidates shouldn’t be much of a surprise. She has been quite vocal about it on CNN and on ABC’s The View, where she serves as a rotating host.
“Damn right, I donated to [Biden]. I want a President who believes in science and doesn’t suggest Americans ingest Lysol. Let me remind you, the so-called “Republican President” donated to many Democrats, including Pelosi & Hilary, a guest at his wedding…3rd one,” she wrote on Twitter in response to NewsBusters.
A CNN spokesperson noted their commentators may donate time or money to the causes and candidates they care about.
Navarro previously worked for the Jeb Bush, John McCain, and Jon Huntstman teams.Follow @CommentaryCNN
