Navarro on Rubio’s Evangelical Outreach: He Came Close to ‘Speaking in Tongues’
Ana Navarro on Rubio’s Evangelical Debate Pandering: He Came Close to ‘Speaking in Tongues’ (Mediaite)
After the GOP debate, CNN’s Anderson Cooper assembled a panel to review the high and low points of the evening. Among those in attendance was one of Donald Trump‘s cable news foes: Republican strategist Ana Navarro.
Navarro had a few observations to share when the topic turned to fellow Floridian Marco Rubio. When Gloria Borger brought up Rubio’s questionable authenticity and off-putting intensity, Navarro agreed that those aspects need refining, but said “that’s just his personality.”
“He’s not only trying to take votes from Jeb Bush; he’s also squarely going after the Evangelical votes,” she went on, being met with a chorus of variations on “yes” and “absolutely” from her fellow panelists. “It was all he could do but start speaking in tongues.”
