CNN commentator Ana Navarro has drawn criticism for asserting that Melania Trump probably has brain damage — but a Fox host’s reply has come under fire as well.
- While vacationing, Navarro tweeted a response to Melania Trump’s new anti-bullying efforts, writing “But damn, girlfriend’s lack of self-awareness & any sense of shame for her husband’s use of the Presidency to bully others, is hard to ignore. Only plausible explanation here is, Melania suffered oxygen deprivation to the brain.”
On vacay & I swore I’d stay off political twitter.

- Navarro drew fire from Fox News commentator Toni Lahern, who during a “Fox & Friends” appearance, said “”Can you imagine if we would sit here on Fox News and attack Michelle Obama for something that she was trying to do to better the country?”
- That comment, in turn, drew fire on social media, who pointed out Fox News and other outlets criticism Michelle Obama’s efforts to raise awareness about childhood obesity and nutrition by planting a garden on the White House grounds.
@TomiLahren @FoxNews imagine? It’s everywhere on the web! From her garden to her weight to bare arms… meanwhile… pictures of nice Melania are also out there and they all act like she’s the most refined since Jackie O! Gtfoh! https://t.co/ofupYFwcny

I recall Michelle Obama attacked for going sleeveless, & worse, for encouraging kids to be healthy. Now clutch ur pearls when a FLOTUS who spread birther conspiracy, wore offensive jacket & advocates against cyber-bullying while her husband cyber bullies humanity, is criticized. https://t.co/vhjgs7vWsO
