Hardcore progressives like Ana Navarro, co-host of “The View,” — which might just be the worst talk show in the history of television, even worse than “The Jerry Springer Show” and that was a total dumpster fire — also cry aloud how concerned they are about some right-wing president or GOP lawmakers causing the collapse of democracy, however, when you really examine their own beliefs under a microscope, it becomes clear that the biggest threat is themselves.
A good case point is how Navarro wants to decide who can and cannot run for the White House. What brought this up for discussion on the program? The fact that a group called No Labels is attempting to run a third party candidate in the 2024 presidential election, which the co-host said in no uncertain terms is totally out of the question, according to a report from The Western Journal.
“The moment came in advance of the group’s town hall in New Hampshire that evening. According to USA Today, the group, which wants a third-party candidate in the ballot in all 50 states, is looking for candidates who will ‘declare their freedom from the anger and divisiveness that are ruining our politics and most importantly, our country,'” the report continued.
“Perhaps most notably, one of the organization’s honorary co-chairs is West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, who was in attendance at the New Hampshire gathering. Manchin would make significant waves, of course, were he to win the group’s nomination. Former Republican Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman — who ran in the 2012 GOP presidential primaries — was the other,” the WJ said.
In a recent interview conducted by Fox News, Joe Liberman, the organization’s founding co-chair, who is a sort of right-leaning Democrat who became an independent and served as Al Gore’s running mate back in 2000 and was also a senator for the state of Connecticut from 1989 to 2013, stated that his group has not made a final decision about running a third-party candidate. However, he did suggest that it was likely.
“We haven’t decided to run a ticket. It’s not even clear that if it ends up being Trump and Biden, as it looks like it will now, that we’ll do that,” he remarked during the interview.“I think No Labels invited Joe Manchin and Jon Huntsman because they’re former chairs of our organization and they represent centrist Democrats, centrist Republicans, which is what we’re about.”
“I guess it’s natural for people to speculate, particularly in Manchin’s case whether it means he will run on a possible No Labels ticket year. It’s way too early to say that. I think Joe hasn’t decided that at all, as he’s said, and No Labels hasn’t decided it,” the former senator added.
And now for what you all came for…Navarro’s massive freak out.
“I think this is the stupidest thing ever,” Navarro ranted on Monday’s episode of “The View.”
“And let me just say this, my husband has been very supportive of No Labels,” Navarro steamrolled ahead. “He’s been a part of No Labels. When No Labels started, one of the things they did was bring together a bunch of people in Congress, Senate and House, with a bipartisan agenda. It was Republicans and Democrats trying to work together on some of the crises that we have in this nation, and I think that part is so needed and so great.
“But this is dangerous because — let’s just put things in context,” she continued. “This is not a normal thing. This is not Bill Clinton versus George Herbert Walker Bush with Ross Perot playing spoiler. No. This is Donald Trump.”
“He is a threat to national security. He has threatened our democracy. He caused an insurrection. He has weaponized government against his enemies and so if you, Jon Huntsman or Joe Lieberman — I love you, Joe Lieberman, but you’ve got to stop this, Joe. Joe, Joe, this is insane, and you cannot do anything, anything that could possibly help Donald Trump become president. You cannot be an accomplice on that. You are better than that, Joe,” Navarro proclaimed during the segment.
Talk about melodrama. Geesh. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think the co-host was talking about the antichrist or something. In reality, that’s pretty much how the left views Trump. He’s their ultimate boogeyman. He terrifies the wits out of them. Why?
Because when the former president says he will bring their agenda to an end and undo the damage they have done, he means it. That’s exactly what he did the first time around. You can guarantee he’ll be doing it again should he win reelection.
A third-party candidate threatens the chances Joe Biden has of being reelected, which means it increases Trump’s chances. Nothing makes Navarro and others like her shake in their boots like that idea does.
