Ana Navarro said Wednesday that some Republicans might be refusing to get the coronavirus vaccine in order to keep President Joe Biden from reaching his July 4 goal.
Navarro said on ABC’s “The View” that vaccinations had become politicized in the same way that masks were, adding, “I think a lot of people didn’t want Joe Biden to reach the 70% goal. They wanted him to fail.” (RELATED: ‘He Was Sexually Harassing Himself Maybe’: Ana Navarro Brushes Off Toobin Zoom Call As ‘Accidental Exposure,’ Defends Return To CNN)
“As the United States falls short of vaccination goals and the deadly new delta variant spreads, the question remains, how do you handle Americans that refuse to get vaccinated?” Joy Behar asked, attributing the problem to red states and asking Navarro what she thought of the situation.

“I think vaccinations much like masks have become politicized,” Navarro began, saying she believed a lot of people did not want to see Biden reach his stated goal of 70% of American adults vaccinated by July 4.
“They wanted him to fail. They didn’t want him to have that win. They didn’t see it as an American goal. They saw it as a Biden win,” Navarro continued, saying she believed that was the reason that the United States would not meet that goal.
“I just go back to saying, it should not and cannot be politicized. I applaud the Biden administration, [first lady] Jill Biden, [Vice President] Kamala Harris, [second gentleman] Doug Emhoff, who day after day are going to different states, red states even, trying to get people vaccinated,” Navarro concluded, also giving credit to Republican governors who had worked to get more of their residents vaccinated. “This is not Republican or Democrat. It’s about safety and really, our mental health, our economy, and god forbid my waistline cannot go back into lockdown.”
