CNN contributor Ana Navarro used disgusting and dehumanizing language to describe Stephen Miller, who is Jewish, referring to the senior White House adviser as an “it” and questions whether or not he has a soul:
It has a soul? https://t.co/QfLpoDnWP9

Trump's tweets about the media are downright dehumanizing. He sounds like he's trying to strip away our legitimacy and indeed our humanity. He is leading a "hate movement." https://t.co/2EcevrXn7a

Oddly, no libs or Trump critics have called out Navarro for her rhetoric:
Trump uses dehumanizing terms like 'invasion' to justify an agenda that separates families and targets communities like Morton, Mississippi.

Now I’m on my way to Clint, where the Trump admin was denying children toothpaste and soap.
This has been horrifying so far. It is hard to understate the enormity of the problem. We’re talking systemic cruelty w/ a dehumanizing culture that treats them like animals.

"No human being would want to live there." You might say Trump is dehumanizing those Americans who do live there. You might say Trump hates some parts of America, and some citizens of America. Or you might cut to the chase and say our president is a bigot. https://t.co/p6X3zln5R5

To the trolls:
Trump uses dehumanizing language like "aliens" "illegals" or even "animals" to justify horrific human rights abuses against migrants. The DOJ now mandates that public officials only use the term "illegal aliens."
This is straight out of the demagogue's playbook. https://t.co/mEqPJSP95Z

Trump deploying dehumanizing metaphors, comparing immigrants to fish, is a dangerous and pathetic attempt to make the case for detention.
The rest of us shouldn’t take the bait. https://t.co/dIMTSDLfpp
