‘The View’ Host Forced to Issue Retraction

“The View” co-host Anna Navarro was forced to eat some crow this week.

Navarro had claimed that Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) had held a gun to some of the Capitol rioters on January 6, 2021.

She was forced to issue a retraction after video showed that her claim was completely made up.

I Take It Back

New footage was released of some of the rioters approaching the House chamber.

The footage appears to have been taken from one of the rioters who had poked the phone through broken glass, where Reps. Troy Nehls and Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) can be seen confronting the rioters.

Nehls was trying to get the people to back up, and he was surrounded by law enforcement, all of whom had their guns drawn.

After that video was posted, Navarro stated, “That’s in the well of the House. That’s a Republican congressman holding a gun to the insurrectionists who were about to break in, who were coming for them.

“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?”

Navarro must have been informed of her mistake during the show, as she later recanted her claim.

Navarro stated, “I misspoke.

“I said that a Republican congressman had been holding the gun. Actually, we don’t know if it was a Secret Service [agent] or a police officer. … The two Republican congressmen were behind the guy — the law enforcement officer — holding the gun.”

When Nehls was informed of the comments, he immediately posted on X, “Today, the dishonest View said I was holding a gun on January 6th.

“This is a false statement and made with RECKLESS disregard for the truth. I look forward to a public apology from Ms. Navarro and speaking with their attorneys.”

This is far from the first time a member of the show has gotten it wrong, as they regularly jump to conclusions about all conservatives or push a debunked narrative on the show.
