Ana Navarro thinks Republicans will regret overturning Roe because they have 'young daughters and mistresses that get pregnant'

On Don Lemon Tonight Tuesday, CNN contributor Ana Navarro spoke about the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion signaling the repeal of Roe v. Wade, and the problem that could emerge for some in the GOP. Navarro referenced the multiple congressional Republicans who have appeared to be pro-life, family-values legislators in public, but were in favor of abortion when it came to their mistresses.

“Republicans have daughters, young daughters, and mistresses that get pregnant too. And how many Republican legislators have we heard about in Congress, some of them, who had to leave their jobs because we learned they wanted their mistresses to get abortions,” Navarro said. “So this is one of these causes, one of these issues, where now that they got what they wanted, they may regret it. They may be saying to themselves, ‘Oh, holy lord. We got what we wanted, now what?’”

Navarro also called out Republican Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. Collins and Murkowski believed the Trump-nominated justices who reportedly voted to repeal Roe, when they intimated during their confirmation hearings that they wouldn’t do so. Both Collins and Murkowski released statements on Tuesday expressing shock at the turn of events.

“I got only one thing to say to Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins: Girls, you got played. They absolutely did get played,” Navarro said. “They might have been told one thing in their office. Certainly some of these justices testified to something completely different during their confirmation hearings, and then now we see they intend to vote a very different way.”
