Navarro: ‘We’re Not Electing an Entertainer-in-Chief,’ But ‘a Commander-in-Chief’

‘Stop this pettiness, calling each other names, talking about each other’s faces, whether we’re killing baby Hitler’

STEPHANOPOULOS: "You know, and, Ana, what do you think, first of all? Do you agree with Bill on the — on the possibility this would hurt Trump and Carson and does it put Jeb Bush in a little bit of a box again, having to deal with his brother’s legacy one more time?"
NAVARRO: "Actually, I don’t. I think what it does is it high — it highlights the fact that he’s a governor who had experience dealing with crises and who’s got leadership experience. Look, what I hope this does is I hope it serves as a wakeup call, both for candidates and voters in the Republican Party. Let us focus on the important stuff. To the candidates, I would say, folks, stop playing small ball. Stop this pettiness, calling each other names, talking about each other’s faces, whether we’re killing baby Hitler or I’m not and tell me what you’re going to do to defeat this threat. And to the voters, I would say, folks, we’re not electing an entertainer-in-chief. We are electing a commander-in-chief and it’s not if, it’s when we face this crisis, who do you want to be there in the big room making the decisions?"
