Rep. Clarice Navarro Celebrates Her Love For Donald Trump

As Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has nosedived in popularity since claiming the party’s nomination last month, the vocal and very public support Trump has received from a particular Republican state legislator in Colorado, Rep. Clarice Navarro of Pueblo, has struck us as a potential major liability in her own re-election campaign. House District 47’s population is about 35% Hispanic, after all, and Trump has worked so hard to aggrieve Hispanic voters–and most everybody else, but especially Hispanic voters–that it’s almost like it was a deliberate goal.

We took note last weekend of a photo that Rep. Navarro in fact sent to us of herself with Trump, the second such picture she has distributed publicly, with a note reaffirming how she is proud to support Trump so there. Today, Rep. Navarro tripled down with a guest op-ed in USA TODAY:

Latino voters are American voters. They want the laws followed, a safe America and a future of hope. While we may not have loved the delivery of some of Mr. Trump’s comments, his vision for “making America great again” is what matters.

We have over 70 days before the election, and there is so much more to come. I don’t believe that this election has even started until the debates begin…

Again, after a recent meeting with Mr. Trump, I found him to be consultative, compassionate, and a man who understands the challenges we face, not just as Latinos, but as Americans. We are desperate for a new direction, and a Clinton presidency will only offer a four-year extension of the Obama administration. We deserve better now, and our children deserve better for their futures. That’s not solely a Hispanic or Latino vision; that is an American vision and hope.

And there you have it, folks! Rep. Clarice Navarro of Pueblo is now one of Donald Trump’s biggest apologists. Also, “consultative” is a stupid word.

In terms of Navarro’s political career, this either ends miraculously well…or very, very badly.

    "It’s time to get over the delivery and take a hard look at the message, and I believe American voters are doing just that. Si se puede!"

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
