CNN commentator Ana Navarro has blasted President Trump for retweeting an animated gif involving Hillary Clinton, calling him a “jerk” for doing so.
The clip shows Trump hitting a golf ball which appears to hit Clinton in the back as she boards a plane, knocking her down.
“We cannot normalize this kind of behavior from the President of the United States," Navarro said during a panel discussion Sunday.
"He is still an example. If your...son did this, he’d be punished.
And so, this 71-year old should not be accepted...he’s being a jerk and he’s not being a president.”
She posted a similar sentiment on Twitter, writing, “Some Trump supporters defend the indefensible.
Retweeting himself hitting golf ball at Hillary Clinton, not normal, adult or presidential.”
The person who originally tweeted the gif, captioned with “Donald Trump’s amazing golf swing #CrookedHillary,” did so in response to a message the president himself had posted Wednesday.
It read, “The ‘deplorables’ came back to haunt Hillary. They expressed their feelings loud and clear.
She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!”
Just minutes before, Trump had also tweeted, “Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss.
She lost the debates and lost her direction!”
His tweets were likely in response to critical comments Clinton made about him in her highly publicized new book, “What Happened” and during her promotional interviews for it.
In the book, Clinton refers to Trump as a “clear and present danger to the country and the world,” and goes on to say about his presidency, “I sometimes wonder: If you add together his time spent on golf, Twitter and cable news, what’s left?”.
