On Monday morning’s episode of ABC talk show “The View”, Ana Navarro defended CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, claiming that Republicans who support Donald Trump have “no moral standing” to attack him for his “masturbation scandal”.

“We talk so much about the demolition culture, which I like to call an accountability culture,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “Where do you draw the line? The line seems to shift constantly depending on the person. “
“Did his behavior have any consequences? Yes, the New Yorker who had the problem at work because he had a New Yorker call got fired after 20 years of employment. His behavior in this workplace had consequences, ”she added.
“I think then we have to re-examine this issue of cancellation culture. There are so many people, ‘This person should be canceled.’ ‘This person should not be canceled,’ ”said Hostin. “CNN has decided not to cancel Jeffrey Toobin. Some people are in the arms. Some people missed his legal comment. Where do you draw the line now? “

Navarro then stepped in to leave.
“I do want to say, however, that I’ve seen a lot of people on the right who came to CNN, after Jeffrey Toobin,” she said.
“Look, man, if you support a president who we’ve heard was boasting of sexual assault on video, a person who hushed up a stripper, then you have no moral rights to find out about Jeffrey Toobin who does what to outrag he did, ”added Navarro.

Meghan McCain beats Toobin
This comes days after Navarro’s Conservative co-host Meghan McCain beat up CNN for putting Toobin back, even after he was masturbated on a Zoom call.
“That’s rubbish,” she tweeted next to a video showing Toobin on his first day at work. “Why is the media protecting these old white male dinosaurs in this industry? No woman on PLANET EARTH would be welcomed back on network television after being caught masturbating in front of her co-workers. What does that have to do with working on a blackboard? “
Toobin had cited working at a grocery bank as evidence that he had put his life back on track after the scandal. Many, including McCain, had none of this.
That is trash.
