Ana Navarro says Trump supporters ‘have no moral standing’ to attack CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin
On Monday morning’s episode of ABC talk show “The View,” Ana Navarro defended CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, saying Republicans who back Donald Trump have “no moral position” to attack him for her “masturbation scandal”.
Sunny Hostin ringing off
“We talk so much about the culture of cancellation, what I like to call the culture of accountability,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “Where do you draw the line? The line seems to constantly change depending on who is involved.
“Were there any consequences for his behavior? Yes, the New Yorker where the workplace problem happened because he was on a New Yorker appeal, he was fired after 20 years of service. There were consequences for his behavior in this workplace, ”she added.
“So I think we need to re-examine this issue of cancellation culture. There are so many people, ‘This person should be canceled.’ “This person shouldn’t be canceled,” Hostin said. “CNN has decided not to cancel Jeffrey Toobin. Some people are taking up arms. Some people have missed his legal comment. Where do you draw the line now?”

It was then that Navarro rang to leave.
“What I would like to say, though, I’ve seen a lot of people on the right come after CNN, after Jeffrey Toobin,” she said.
“Look, man, if you backed a president we heard brag about on video sexual assault, someone who secretly paid a stripper money, then you have no moral value to be totally outraged by Jeffrey Toobin doing what he did, ”Navarro added.

Meghan McCain slams Toobin
It comes days after Navarro’s conservative co-host Meghan McCain slammed CNN for hiring Toobin even after being caught masturbating on a Zoom call at work.
“This is garbage,” she tweeted alongside a video showing Toobin on his first day back from work. “Why is the media protecting these old white male dinosaurs in this industry? No PLANET EARTH woman would be welcome on Network TV after being caught masturbating in front of her co-workers. What does working in a food bank have to do with it?
Toobin had cited work at a food bank as proof that he had regained control of his life in the wake of the scandal. Many, including McCain, did not.
