Ana Navarro, a co-host of the talk show “The View” made some interesting remarks about what she does when in Florida or near Governor Ron DeSantis (R). During her dialogue, she said “It wasn’t me in New Hampshire screaming ‘We say gay’ – though I wish I would have. I try to do it anytime I am anywhere near Ron DeSantis or any of his people. I go around like a dog in Florida with my head outside of my car [shouting] ‘We say gay!’; ‘We say gay!’; ‘We say gay!'”
Navarro’s bizarre statement was applauded by the audience.
The entire segment was captured in a video in a tweet by Greg Price who wrote “Navarro: “I go around like a dog in Florida with my head outside of my car. We say gay! We say gay! We say gay!””
Navarro’s comments about “We say gay” were made in reference to the Parental Rights in Education Bill (and now law) in Florida that prohibits “[c]lassroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students.” This law that was signed by the Republican governor was dubbed by its opponents the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. The word “gay” (or homosexual) is not mentioned once in the bill.
The View has been broadcasting since 1997 and has had its fair share of entertaining moments. For instance, when Meghan McCain returned to the show from maternity leave and got into a dispute with Joy Behar about politics, sparks flew. Meghan said that Joy must have missed her when she was on maternity leave to which Joy Behar responded, “I did not. I did not miss you. Zero.”

The same Joy Behar later ranted and raved about President Biden’s “brilliant” address to Congress and attacked Republicans like Senator Tom Scott (R-SC), a black Republican, for not seeming “to understand the difference between a racist country and systemic racism.” The term systemic racism implies by its very name that the country is governed by racism in one form or another.
