Ana Navarro Got Personal With Don Jr. After His Tasteless Joke About Positive COVID Cases On ‘The View’

Tomi Lahren has already tried (and largely failed) to dunk on members of The View for testing positive for coronavirus ahead of an interview with Kamala Harris, but Donald Trump Jr. is certainly familiar with following in failed footsteps and tried his hand at it again this weekend.

What followed, of course, is the son of the twice-impeached president getting a quick reply from The View host Ana Navarro that offered a taste of his own medicine regarding his own once-COVID-sickened father. The daytime talk show devolved into chaos on Friday when two co-hosts, Navarro and Sunny Hostin, learned live on air that they were positive ahead of an interview with the current vice president.

Later in the weekend, Trump Jr. tried to weight-shame members of the cast in the wake of the positive tests by making a tasteless joke about comorbidities.

“Given the Ana Navarro news, I think it’s time for a national conversation about the dangers of Covid-19 & obesity,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

But Navarro wasn’t having it, responding to the tweet with a scathing reply that wasn’t exactly funny, but probably hurt a bit more given how personal it got.

“Fortunately for you, if you want to have a conversation about the effects of obesity on people with COVID, your dad is a phone call away…assuming he answers your calls,” Navarro said. “Or just ask your sister to call him for you.”

Trump, of course, needed experimental therapies to save his life after his oxygen levels dipped to dangerously low levels and he was rushed to Walter Reed in Washington last October after contracting the extremely deadly disease. Meanwhile, Navarro tweeted on Saturday that she had gotten a third negative test, which likely means she’s already in the clear.

What’s important is that Navarro is healthy and didn’t seem to experience any adverse effects thanks to her vaccination and routine testing on the show. And while Trump Jr. was trying to be smug about a “national conversation” regarding coronavirus it wouldn’t be a bad idea. Despite widespread vaccine availability, according to the New York Times more than 2,000 people died from COVID-19 again on Saturday, the vast majority of them unvaccinated.
