During a heated back-and-forth between during ABC’s “The View” on Monday, Meghan McCain asked Ana Navarro why she considers herself a part of the GOP when her opinions rarely support the Republican Party.
“It is not intellectually honest to sit here and say that this is completely Trump’s fault,” she said. “Democrats are playing partisan politics in the exact same way.”
“It’s playing party politics — we have another month to figure out DACA until March,” McCain said, at which point co-host Joy Behar threw her paper down on the table in frustration at the crosstalk between the two. “They’re attaching it to a spending bill.”
Whoopie Goldberg then loudly interjected in an attempt to stop the argument.
“I understand that DACA is a very emotional issue at this point, but most Republicans are on my side on this one, Ana,” she said. “It’s really difficult for me to understand sometimes why you still consider yourself a Republican.”
“Because I’m a Hispanic, immigrant Latina,” Navarro said. She then proceeded to tell the story of how she immigrated to the United States from Nicaragua. “I came here through no decision of my own, through no fault of my own. If my parents had not had the resources to hire lawyers, I would be a DREAM Act kid, too.”
