‘The View’ Forced to Issue Correction after Pushing False Claims about Jan 6

“The View” has been forced to issue a correction after one of the ABC show’s co-hosts pushed false claims about the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Co-host Ana Navarro falsely claimed that footage shows Republican Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) pointing a gun at protesters during Jan. 6.

She was commenting on footage released by NBC News showing Nehls confronting Jan. 6 protesters.

In the video, a law enforcement officer is seen pointing a gun directly at a protester.

However, Navarro falsely told viewers that Nehls was holding the gun.

She continued by falsely claiming that President Donald Trump “was the cause for that insurrection.”

Navarro concluded her anti-Trump tirade by declaring that her false claims are justification for the Democrats preventing the 45th president from “getting nowhere near the White House ever again.”

“That’s in the well of the House,” Navarro started.

“That is a Republican congressman holding a gun to the insurrectionists who were about to break in, who were coming for them,” she falsely said.

“How those Republicans can then go and endorse and support and campaign for Donald Trump, who was the cause for that insurrection, who incited it and promoted [it].

“How they can live with themselves, how they can pretend it was tourists touring the Capitol.

“How they can go around, [like] Elise Stefanik echo[ing] Trump’s words calling them hostages.”

“How dare he play with that word? How dare they try to whitewash history?

“And look, maybe it doesn’t work for everybody, but for me, today, I’m a single issue voter and my single issue is democracy and Trump losing,” she continued.

“I can disagree with Joe Biden on policy, I have one issue I care about … Donald Trump getting nowhere near the White House ever again.”



Nehls responded by blasting Navarro’s “false statement” which he described as a “RECKLESS disregard for the truth.”

In a later segment, Navarro later said she “misspoke” about the gunman shown in the Capitol riot footage.

“Yes, I misspoke. I said a Republican congressman had been holding the gun. Actually, we don’t know if it was a Secret Service or a police officer that day, but the one holding the gun, two Republican congressmen were behind the guy — the law enforcement officer — holding the gun,” Navarro continued.


The footage, recorded with a cellphone by Jan. 6 protester Damon Beckley, showed Nehls and Republican Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) condemning the violence inside the House chamber.

Nehls can be heard telling them they should be ashamed, according to footage released by NBC News Justice reporter Ryan J. Reilly.

The congressmen spoke to Beckley through shattered glass on the then-locked House chamber door.

“You ought to be ashamed of yourself!” Nehls said.
