CNN’s Don Lemon Tonight host Don Lemon was clearly happy on Wednesday night, that Kansas voters didn’t approve of an amendment that would allow the state legislature to enact a tougher ban on abortion. In his quest to analyze the shocking election results in Kansas, Lemon brought on vile, so-called “Republican” Ana Navarro to spew her usual bile at Republicans.
“This is a state that Trump carried by 15 points in 2020. Last night, the pro-choice side won 58 percent of the votes. That means a lot of Republicans had to go out and vote for this,” Lemon said with shock. He then paused and asked Navarro “why?”
Navarro responded that deep red Kansas voted down a pro-life amendment because “Republicans like their rights, too. Because Republicans have young girls, young daughters who get pregnant too. Because Republicans have mistresses.”
Of course, Navarro never explained how this amendment would take rights away. Neither did she provide any statistics that prove there are enough voters with “mistresses” to defeat a statewide ballot initiative. Nor did she explain what the two have to do with each other.
Lemon then asked her to explain how Republicans feel about abortion in light of this result since Navarro allegedly knows the Republican Party and was “a Republican strategist.”
Without providing any names or evidence of any kind to back up her wild and irresponsible allegations, Navarro claimed: “there are congresspeople right now, Republican U.S. congresspeople who were pro-anti-abortion who was revealed had sent their girlfriends to have abortions.”
Nobody should be surprised at Navarro’s hateful and fact-free comments. One only has to be reminded that she once proclaimed that children in foster care and her disabled relatives should’ve been aborted. This is the kind of person she is. She’s perfect for CNN & The View.

CNN’s Don Lemon Tonight

DON LEMON: This is a state that Trump carried by 15 points in 2020. Last night, the pro-choice side won 58 percent of the votes. That means a lot of Republicans had to go out and vote for this.
ANA NAVARRO: Republicans—
NAVARRO: Because Republicans like their rights, too. Because Republicans have young girls, young daughters who get pregnant too. Because Republicans have mistresses, because this is not an issue that is one side or the other and because this is an issue where people have had rights for 50 years, and taking out a right is one of the most difficult things you can do after people have gotten used to that right. Listen, and I think part of what was so shocking in Kansas yesterday, this is a state that has not voted for a Democrat for President —
LEMON: For President.
NAVARRO: In all of our lifetime. Alice, you and me were not alive in 1964 when LBJ—-you weren’t alive, right? LBJ got—
LEMON: I was a glimmer. I was almost alive.
NAVARRO: LBJ got elected. And so that’s the shocking part, the numbers and the fact that it’s such a red state.
LEMON: You know you were a Republican. You know the Republican Party. You worked in Republican circles. You were a Republican strategist. You know how Republicans feel about abortion.
NAVARRO: There are Congress people right now, Republican U.S. Congress people who were pro-anti-abortion who was revealed had sent their girlfriends to have abortions. So the hypocrisy, the hypocrisy by so many people who are making these laws and I’m not referring to Alice because that’s not who I’m referring to but there are many, many people who are incredibly double-faced and hypocritical when it comes to this.
