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.”

  • 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.
