Ana Navarro Goes On ‘The View’ After Sunny Hostin Says Kanye West Is ‘Sick’: ‘Tired Of Excusing His Anti-Semitism’ +2023

Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro couldn’t quite agree on this morning’s episode The view, shoot at each other in a roundtable discussion about Kanye West and his recent appearance on Alex Jones’ Infowars show, in which he praised Hitler. While Hostin said West was mentally ill and needed help, Navarro snapped and announced she was sick of hearing excuses for the rapper’s worrying behavior.

While discussing West’s comments yesterday (December 1), Hostin described the Yeezy designer as “an anti-Semite and anti-Black,” but added, “Kanye is clearly a sick person,” and later accused figures like Alex Jones of Donald Trump and white supremacist Nick Fuentes on ‘exploiting’ West’s ‘mental illness’

When she continued, “That’s horrible,” Navarro audibly sighed and chimed in to say, “Can I tell you something? I can’t bear to associate his mental illness with his anti-Semitism and bigotry and how awful he is,” while Hostin insisted, “I don’t associate it.”

Navarro replied, “I know, but I think there are a lot of people…” while Hostin cut her off and wondered aloud, “Can anyone increase their meds?”

Navarro said angrily to her co-host, “Fine, but listen Sunny, he’s got a whole bunch of people around him all the time who should stop taking the eggs off the golden goose and do something about his mental illness should. And I don’t want to apologize — I’m tired of making excuses for his anti-Semitism.”

Hostin continued to insist, “I don’t condone his anti-Semitism,” while Navarro said she wasn’t pointing fingers at Hostin, but told her, “There are people who understand his anti-Semitism and his bigotry and the hateful things he’s saying, apologize, including about his own race, because of his insanity.”

“Listen. You’ve got money, you’ve got people. You’re mentally ill? Get help,” Navarro said. “But I’m not condoning the terrible things you’re saying.”

Later in that segment, Joy Behar assured Navarro that the panel “doesn’t confuse mental illness,” but said, “In Kayne’s case, maybe he’s a little nutcase,” to which Navarro replied, “I’m not saying we do.” I’m saying there’s a lot of people who apologize for Kanye who don’t want to judge it because he’s mentally ill. I say I won’t give you a passport.”

Hostin agreed, telling her, “There’s no excuse for that,” adding, “Nobody at this table excuses him, but I’m surprised people would.” He was so anti-Semitic, he was so anti-Black, but he was also so insane. And I’m surprised none of his family members came and helped him.”

Behar ended the back-and-forth with a call to action, telling the panel and audience that regardless of where hate is coming from, it is the right thing to speak out and stop him.

“The only thing you can do is speak out against it. When someone says something anti-Black, anti-Semitic, anti-gay, whatever. You speak out against it, you nip it in the bud. They don’t allow it to multiply,” Behar said. And they have spoken out against it.

The view airs weekdays at 11/10c on ABC. Watch this morning’s segment in the video above.
