During an appearance on ABC’s This Week Sunday, Republican strategist and ardent Donald Trump critic Ana Navarro reminded viewers of just how ridiculous Trump’s so-called “pivots” on issues of race and immigration sound to non-white voters.

“I don’t think this works, because look: You can change what a person says, you can change what a person reads off of a Teleprompter. You can’t change a person’s heart,” Navarro said, referencing Trump’s attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton.

“The problem that Donald Trump has is that most humans have a memory.”

Navarro also broke down Trump’s repeated and bizarre flip-flops on immigration policy over the past week — a seeming attempt to find some non-existent sweet spot between his alt-right, nativist base and mainstream Republicans and centrists — and his shocking comment over the weekend on the shooting death of basketball star Dwyane Wade’s cousin in Chicago.
