Republican political strategist Ana Navarro emerged as the breakthrough voice of Donald Trump's political implosion on Oct. 7 when Trump surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes asked her to stop quoting Donald because "my daughter is watching." Set off by the hypocrisy of asking someone else not to repeat the words of your candidate that you are on TV defending, Navarro let her have it. (The exchange begins at 0:35):

Navarro: "...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 pussy?'"

Hughes: "Will you please stop saying that word? My daughter is listening."

Navarro: "Well you know what, Scottie, you know what, Scottie? Don't tell me you're offended when I say pussy, but you're not offended when Donald Trump says pussy! I'm not running for president, he is!"

In the crosstalk, Scottie can be heard clarifying that she was also offended by Trump's words, but that it was no excuse to go around saying it over and over on television. This wasn't Navarro's only viral moment of the night. Viewers also widely shared this clip of the GOP strategist calling for Trump to resign, saying he can barely call himself a man, let alone a president:
