Navarro Slams Republicans For Supporting Trump
Navarro said, “There’s things which I think should transcend partisanship and should transcend politics, and a breach of the U.S. Capitol, an attack on our democratic principles and institutions should be one of those things.”
“I really blame Republicans at the top for capitulating to Trump,” Navarro continued. “I blame Trump for continuing this environment of lies and conspiracy theories and not accepting that he lost, and encouraging and promoting what happened, the big lie, and what happened on January 6.”
“He bears responsibility,” Navarro insisted.
She wasn’t finished.
“It’s not just me saying this,” ‘The View’ co-host claimed. “It was Kevin McCarthy saying this on January 6 — let me read to you what he said, Kevin McCarthy, ‘The president bears responsibility for today’s attacks on Congress by mob rioters.’ McCarthy said on the House floor. ‘He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding. These facts require immediate action by President Trump.”
“Now just days later, that same Kevin McCarthy was at Mar-a-Lago kissing Trump’s ring,” Navarro observed.
She continued, “We’ve seen Republican after Republican who on January 6 was shocked and calling for an investigation, and for truth and for reaction and action from Trump. We’ve seen them bow down to Trump because they want to stay elected and because they’re putting their own positions over democracy and over defending the U.S. institution of a legitimate election.”
The View: Same segment. Trump didn’t win in 2016,
Nice work @AnaNavarro.

Navarro then stated that Trump had not been legitimately elected in 2016.
“Look, I felt that Donald Trump had not been legitimately elected,” she said. “I felt he’d gotten help from the Russians, but you know what? To me, it would not have occurred to me that I should take arms against Donald Trump. That’s just not what we do in America.”
Navarro believed that the ballot box was the most powerful weapon.
“Our weapon of choice is voting, is democracy, it’s the ballot, and so I hope that people remember January 6,” she said. “You know why? “You know why? Register to vote. By making sure they know where they have to show up to vote because there are elections this year, and they are so crucial.”
