CNN’s Navarro Urges ‘Mad as Hell’ Voters in Florida to Register — ‘Just Do It’

Thursday on CNN’s “The Lead,” network commentator and Florida resident Ana Navarro said she hoped President Donald Trump’s “offensive” and “surreal” tweet about the death toll in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria would motivate those who are “mad as hell at this tweet” to register to vote in Florida for the 2018 midterm elections.

Navarro said, “How stupid, how tone deaf, how surreal, how insensitive, how offensive. How offensive to the relatives of the 3,000 people who died in Puerto Rico. Just, you know, how wrong in every single way—morally, politically. I mean, how can this be coming from the president of the United States? Frankly, he’s doing so much harm not only to, you know, not only as we’re in the midst of hurricane preparation and dealing with a hurricane, he’s doing harm to even his political allies in Florida. There is a reason why two people who are very close to Donald Trump, Rick Scott, who is running for U.S. Senate, and Ron DeSantis, who is running for governor, came out immediately today to distance themselves from this.”

She added, “There are Puerto Ricans who moved to Florida, who could actually make or break statewide elections in Florida in 2018 and I hope all those Puerto Ricans and all those people who know Puerto Ricans in Florida or who like Puerto Ricans, who are mad as hell at this tweet, remember that the deadline to register to vote in Florida, if you moved is October 9. Just do it.”
