WATCH: The View’s Ana Navarro Tears Into Marco Rubio

During the debates in the lead-up to the 2016 election, Florida Senator Marco Rubio frequently sparred with Donald Trump. In June of 2016, Rubio said, “Five days ago, we began to explain to the American people that Donald Trump is a con artist. We are going to send a message that the party of Lincoln and Reagan and the presidency of the United States will never be held by a con artist.”

Rubio’s stance on Trump, however, has softened significantly. Rubio acknowledges that the “send her back” chants were wrong but also blamed liberal outrage. The View host Ana Navarro blasted the senator for his comments and called him a hypocite.

Earlier this week, Rubio tweeted, “The tweet was wrong & the chant last night grotesque The left wing politicians & many in the media demanding outrage are self righteous hypocrites And the “outrage & response cycle” allows for only 2 sides & demands you pick or else It’s a stupid game that I refuse to play.”

This prompted a strong response from Navarro. She told viewers, “I have seen Marco Rubio ― whose parents came here, fleeing poverty, who represents a community where they were told, ‘We won’t rent to Cubans, to blacks or to dogs … you can’t drink from this water fountain’ ― I have seen him try to justify this.”

The Republican strategist continued, “You know what self-righteous hypocrisy is? Representing a community full of Venezuelans and Cubans and Haitians and Puerto Ricans, people who hear it every day, ‘Go back to where you’re from’ — and somehow trying to play this as if there’s two sides.”
