Ana Navarro fact-checked a video circulated by the Trump campaign, and broadcast by NBC News, that appears to show Joe Biden mixing up his 2020 opponent with George W. Bush.

The video clip came from an “I Will Vote” concert live stream from Sunday night, featuring the former vice president and Jill Biden, along with a number of celebrities, and President Donald Trump and his campaign seized on a momentary stumble to suggest the Democratic nominee was mentally unfit, reported The Daily Beast.

“Four more years of, George, uh, George,” Biden says in the clip, “we’re going to find ourselves in a position where Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world.”

However, Navarro explained what happened during the interview that she conducted with comedian George Lopez.

“George Lopez and I hosted a two and a half hour GOTV virtual concert in support of Biden-Harris,” Navarro told The Daily Beast. “Joe and Jill Biden spent some time with us at the beginning of the show. It was light banter and laughs.”

The conservative commentator for CNN and “The View” said the president and his team, who aired only the portions of the interview where Lopez and Navarro also appear onscreen, had gotten it wrong.

“In the clip that’s being circulating, Joe Biden was responding to and addressing George,” Navarro said. “That’s the George he was referring to. I know it may come as a shock to some Trump supporters, but some Latinos are named ‘George.’ Not everyone is Jose and Maria.”

Navarro was disappointed that NBC’s “Today” show broadcast the clip and the Trump campaign’s framing.

“It’s not surprising that the Trump campaign would lie about the clip and take it out of context,” she said. “But, frankly, I had higher expectations for NBC News.”

“Rupert is going to make a humongous offer,” one of the sources said. “The thinking is, Let’s buy Trump off so he shuts the f*ck up.”

Here’s the best way to pry Trump from the White House — according to a professional hostage negotiator

President Donald Trump is still refusing the concede that he lost the 2020 presidential election, which has prompted some speculation over whether the Secret Service will be forced to drag him out of the White House on January 20th.

In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.

The View hilariously ridicules ‘Narnia Ice Queen’ Melania Trump for pretending to love Christmas

Published

on

First lady Melania Trump was caught on tape by a friend ranting about Christmas at the White House. After years of conservatives alleging that liberals were engaging in a "War on Christmas," Melania ranted, "Who gives a f*ck about Christmas stuff and decoration?"

"I'm in the Christmas spirit!" cheered Republican strategist Ana Navarro, belting out, "Joy to the world, the Trump's are gone!"

"Really this tape we heard of Melania was so ironic and absurd and ridiculous," Navarro continued. "How long have we been hearing Donald Trump talk about the war on Christmas, the war on Christmas, blah, blah, blah. Turns out the whole time the war on Christmas was coming from within the White House. No wonder she decorated the White House with those trees that looked like the 'Handmaid's Tale.' Be best. Be gone."
