How do you report on Donald Trump bragging about grabbing women “by the p*ssy” when you’re not supposed to use the p-word on the air? That’s among the many things CNN host Don Lemon and his panelists shouldn’t have ever had to grapple with as they discussed the Trump tapes on Friday.

First, Don Lemon turned to Scottie Nell Hughes, an alleged journalist and staunch Donald Trump supporter. He asked how she felt about his comments as a woman and someone rumored to be human.

‘As a woman, you heard the words that he said on that bus in getting off with Billy Bush in 2005, then you just heard him, I assume at Trump Tower, in front of a camera apologizing, saying that, you know, he’s not a perfect man. How do you feel about that?’

Of course, Scottie Nell Hughes refused to condemn Donald Trump’s vile and sexist statements, not to mention his unconvincing non-apology.

‘Well, because I’m going to judge — Am I supposed to sit here and judge his words? I judge actions. I’m not electing Donald Trump.’

Don Lemon may have wondered, “actions like grabbing a woman’s vagina?” but kept that thought to himself as he hammered that lame response with unusual force.

‘Yes, you’re supposed to judge his words and his actions on the bus, those were actions. And words. He’s saying…’

But Scottie Nell Hughes insisted that Donald Trump “didn’t grope the woman” while dismissing the “locker room talk that persists in many male groups today.” She then insisted he apologized and tried to change the topic to how horrible and evil Hillary Clinton is.

After some more back and forth, Bob Beckel from The Hill chimed in with some dire predictions for Donald Trump.

‘I have one thing to say, and one thing only. And that is that this race is over. Tomorrow morning, the money will dry up, the Republicans will start to hide, Trump has no place to go. This race, effectively as of tonight, is no longer a presidential race’

Beckel then advised Donald Trump’s supporters and Republican leaders to shift towards saving races down the ballot. Tara Setmayer then chimed in to remark that GOP donors were already pulling out, and to slam Scottie Nell Hughes.

‘As a mother, Scottie, I don’t understand how you continue to justify this […] I get it, but you’re a mother first. You have daughters. How can you sit there and justify this to your daughters? When you have the person you want to put in the White House talking about grabbing private parts of women.’

After some more back-and-forth, the CNN political commentator and GOP strategist angrily demanded that Scottie Nell Hughes stop dodging the question and explain, as a woman with daughters, how she can possibly still support Donald Trump.

‘This is a disgusting man who has consistently disgusted me from the first day of this campaign. And I think that every single Republican is going to have to answer the question: “What did you do the day you saw the tape of this man boasting about grabbing a woman’s p*ssy?” Period.’

Scottie Nell Hughes responded by clutching her pearls and snapping:

‘Will you please stop saying that word? My daughter is listening.’

But Ana Navarro was having none of that.

‘Don’t tell me you’re offended when I say “p*ssy,” but you’re not offended when Donald Trump says it. I’m not running for president, he is. [So] then  don’t act outraged and offended when I say the word that you’re not offended by the man who you are supporting is saying. That is just absurd.’

Don Lemon then conveniently cut to a commercial. When he and his panel returned, Ana Navarro was no longer there. She later tweeted that she was fine with it, and received accolades from her supporters.

On Saturday, she was back to hammering Donald Trump.

Well done, Ana Navarro, well done.
