Ana Navarro, co-host of the worst television talk show ever created, “The View,” was forced to give a live, on-air correction concerning a false claim she made about the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol building. Some of the footage that was released concerning the infamous incident shows Texas GOP Rep. Troy Nehls engaging in a confrontation with rioters as a local police officer held a rioter at gun point. Navarro falsely stated that it was Nehls who held the gun.
Gee, I wonder why she made this little “oopsie?” I have a theory. And that’s all it is, a theory, so don’t go spreading rumors that this is what happened, you hear? Anyway, Navarro and others like her on the radical left are so obsessed with making conservatives look like the bad guys when it comes to guns that she made the slip up during the show. Could it have been intentional? Maybe, but I doubt it.
“That’s in the well of the House. That is a Republican congressman holding a gun to the insurrectionists who were about to break in, who were coming for them,” Navarro stated during the program. “How those Republicans can then go and endorse and support and campaign for Donald Trump, who was the cause for that insurrection, who incited it and promoted [it]. How they can live with themselves, how they can pretend it was tourists touring the Capitol. How they can go around, [like] Elise Stefanik echo[ing] Trump’s words calling them hostages.”
“How dare he play with that word? How dare they try to whitewash history? And look, maybe it doesn’t work for everybody, but for me, today, I’m a single issue voter and my single issue is democracy and Trump losing,” she added, continuing her on-air rant. “I can disagree with Joe Biden on policy, I have one issue I care about … Donald Trump getting nowhere near the White House ever again.”
In a different segment of the show, Navarro admitted she “misspoke” concerning the footage aired of the gunman earlier in the program. My, how very big of her to admit she was wrong about something. So brave, so bold. You know, for most people, telling the truth is a part of normal every day life. But for a raging liberal, these kind of moments are far and few in between.
“Yes, I misspoke. I said a Republican congressman had been holding the gun. Actually, we don’t know if it was a Secret Service or a police officer that day, but the one holding the gun, two Republican congressmen were behind the guy — the law enforcement officer — holding the gun,” Navarro confessed.
Here’s more from the Daily Caller:
The footage, recorded with a cellphone by rioter Damon Beckley, showed Nehls and Republican Oklahoma Rep. Markwayne Mullin condemning the rioters inside the House chamber, with Nehls telling them they should be ashamed, according to footage released by NBC News Justice reporter Ryan J. Reilly. The congressmen spoke to Beckley through shattered glass on the then-locked House chamber door.
“You ought to be ashamed of yourself!” Nehls said.
“We’re coming in one way or another!” one rioter responded.
“I’ve been in law enforcement in Texas for 30 years, and I’ve never had people act this way,” Nehls said. “I’m ashamed!”

You should be extremely careful when you are a person who is in the media, to ensure individuals are given the truth and not just your interpretation of events. Yes, “The View” is obviously slanted and biased, but before you give analysis on a piece of news, make sure you have the facts confirmed and correct in your copy. It’s just basic professionalism.
