One of The View’s faux conservatives, Ana Navarro was less than pleased with NBC’s Kristen Welker on Monday following her first outing as the new host of NBC’s Meet the Press the previous day. But instead of noting how Welker lied to cover up the extreme position Democrats have on abortion and other topics, Navarro’s primary gripe was that Welker interviewed former President Trump at all. She equated it to “interviewing an insane person.”

After mispronouncing Welker’s name as “Walker,” Navarro initially praised her for being not only the first woman but the first woman of color to host the show:

Meet the Press … s the longest political show on TV. 76 years. This is the first time there is a woman -- a woman of color who is the host, and I think that's an incredible accomplishment and achievement. She was wonderful yesterday thanking the women who came in front of her and paved the way and opened the doors. She thanked Andrea Mitchell, who when she first applied in 1967 for a news job was told, women don't belong in the newsroom. She was incredibly classy.

With that formality out of the way, Navarro began to whine about Welker choosing to have a former president and current presidential candidate as her first big get for the show under her tenure. “I wish she had not done a Trump interview as her first one,” she bellyached.
