The View’s Ana Navarro Rips ‘Shallow Little Hypocrite’ Marco Rubio For Mocking Biden Bus Attack




Joe Biden’s presidential campaign was forced to cancel a Friday campaign event in Austin, Texas, after a caravan of SUVs and pickup trucks seen flying “Trump 2020” flags chased down and attempted to run a Biden-Harris campaign “off the road” near New Braunfels as it approached Austin from San Antonio. At least one Trump truck was caught on video crashing into an SUV driven by a Biden staffer.

Trump supporters also took to the streets on Sunday with trucks and cars to wreak havoc on highways by blocking bridges and other roadways around the country.



The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg described the disturbing incidents as something out of the film “Mississippi Burning,” about 1964 Civil Rights workers.

Trump mocked the bus incident by claiming his supporters were providing an “escort” and called the drivers “patriotic” while claiming they did “nothing wrong.”

“You really are lucky that you didn’t get anybody killed talking this way, sir,” said Goldberg. “With what I’ve been seeing, his supporters have given me a flashback. And when they talk about,’Oh, we think there’s going to be some issues happening,’ you know, who do they think is going to start this? I haven’t seen Biden flags trapping anybody. Am I crazy when you saw this caravan, did you remind you of a ’50s thing as well?”

“I saw the fact that Trump has emboldened bigots and racists to come out from under their rocks,” Hostin said. “Before this anger and hatred existed in the country of course, it was taboo to behave this way. He has emboldened them. He calls them patriots and when you learn more about the incident, you know, these were heavily armed people brandishing weapons in their trucks. They outnumbered police officers, 50 to 1. 50 to 1. Think about that. And I immediately, Whoopi, thought, imagine the outrage from the Trump administration had this been a Black Lives Matter protest, imagine the difference in the reaction, right?”





She noted that Trump calls the BLM movement terrorists but somehow these Trump supporters are “patriots.”

Navarro said that she spoke to a police chief in Miami who told her that what those Trump supporters did was a felony and would be charged as “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.”

Navarro ripped into GOP Sen. Marco Rubio (FL) after he applauded the Trump caravan who attempted to run a Joe Biden campaign bus off the road in Texas.

“I saw yesterday a video of these people in Texas,” Rubio said at a Trump rally in Florida on Sunday. “Did you see it? All the cars on the road, we love what they did.”

“I can’t believe it’s happening in America in 2020,” she said. “When I saw Marco Rubio last night at this Trump rally, Rubio who president Trump used to refer to as Little Marco Rubio, referred to — has now turned into little Trump. And he took a break from tweeting Bible verses to make fun and mock and make a joke about what people did with this bus. It endangered people’s lives. People could have been hurt. It’s an aggression against democracy. Against people’s rights to vote. It’s suppression. it’s instilling fear in people. It’s absolutely wrong and Marco Rubio, you who talk about socialism and talk about dictatorships to be making fun of this and making light of this, you shallow little hypocrite, I’m so embarrassed I ever supported you!”
