Ana Navarro Rips Scottie Nell Hughes For Scolding Her Over The Word 'Pu**y'

Ana Navarro was furious, and rightly so.

Ana Navarro and Scottie Nell Hughes got into a big -- dare I say it? -- catfight food fight on CNN after the entire panel blew up at each other over the idea of anyone defending Donald Trump's behavior in the now-infamous 2005 video.

"This is a man who has consistently disgusted me from the first day of the campaign and every single republican is going to have to answer the question, what did you do the day you saw the tape about this man boasting about grabbing a woman's pussy," Navarro raged.

At which point, Scottie Nell Hughes jumped on her with claws bared. "Would you stop saying that word," she yelled back. "My daughter is listening."

Irony alert, full stop. Just before this exchange, the entire panel had blown out over a challenge to Scottie about why she was defending Trump at all, given that she does have daughters.

Navarro pounced on Hughes. "You're not offended when Donald Trump says it. I'm not running for president, he is. Don't act outraged and offended when i say the word when you're not offended by the man you're supporting. That's absurd."

And with that, Don Lemon meekly cut to a break.

What a time to be alive.

Update: Apparently Navarro was not on the panel after the break. But she tweeted this a few minutes ago:
