Ana Navarro said Tuesday that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s plan to speak with freshman Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was not enough.
Navarro made an unscheduled appearance on ABC’s “The View” and argued that Greene should at the very least be stripped of her appointment to the House Education Committee.
Cohost Whoopi Goldberg began the segment by noting that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had spoken out against the more radical elements within the Republican Party — and most assumed that he was likely referring to Greene.
Navarro responded then, saying that a large number of Republicans had left the party in the days that followed the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. (RELATED: ‘White Slavery’: Ana Navarro Says Kevin McCarthy Visiting Trump And ‘Kissing The Ring’ Looked Like Slave And Master)
“I think what Mitch McConnell did was frankly fill in the vacuum left by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in the House,” Navarro continued. “That visit by McCarthy to Donald Trump, really he looked like a seal waiting for a trainer to throw him a sardine. It was such a pathetic display of weakness.”
Navarro went on to accuse Greene of trafficking in conspiracy theories, adding that McCarthy’s response seemed less than adequate. (RELATED: Chris Wallace Asks What It Means That There’s More GOP Outrage Over Liz Cheney Than Marjorie Taylor Greene)
“He’s saying he’s going to talk to her, look, talk to her, that’s what I do with my five-pound poodle when she pees on the carpet. I have a talk with her,” Navarro said. “It’s inconceivable and unacceptable that someone who spews lies and controversial theories, stalks a teenage survivor of a mass shooting, who calls horrible names people with disabilities, who thinks Jewish laser beams — Jewish laser beams — cause forest fires would be in a committee that sets education policy for our children.”
Navarro concluded that McCarthy should strip her of that committee assignment — and perhaps subject Greene to an involuntary 72-hour hold due to mental illness — saying, “She is a danger and a threat and she should not in a policymaking position, frankly, that woman needs to be Baker-Acted is what she needs to be.”
