Ana Navarro is now an official co-host for “The View” after serving as a guest co-host for the entire year after Meghan McCain departed in August 2021.

When “The View” returns on Sept. 6 for its 26th season, they’ll do so Navarro as a staple to the show. During an interview on the program’s social media platforms, she discussed how the show pushes her outside her political comfort zone.

“Left to my own vices, I would only speak about politics but I get pushed outside of my comfort zone and talk about pop culture and things that are relatable,” Navarro said.

“The thing about The View is that you have to open up about your real life and because viewers want to hear how it relates to them, how it relates to you.”

Navarro, who has been on CNN as a contributor, stated that what makes viewers of “The View” distinct from other show’s she’s appeared on is that the audience “wants to know you, and they’re loyal viewers who’ve been watching year after year, show after show.”

“One thing about “The View” is you gotta be consistent because these viewers remember the stuff you said three years ago on Wednesday on that show when Kim Kardashian was on,” Navarro added.

“Viewers of “The View” know when you’re up, when you’re down, they know when you’re sad, they know when you cut your hair, they know when you’ve colored your hair, they know when you’ve gained weight, they know when you’ve loves weight, they know when you’re in a good mood, they know when you’ve in a bad mood. So you’ve got to just come here and be yourself, be authentic…”

Along with Navarro, former Trump aide Alyssa Farah Griffin will be another permanent face on the show.

MSNBC host Ari Melber went after Fox News and its contributor Lara Trump, appearing on the network criticizing a lawsuit by the New York attorney general against her family’s company.

On Wednesday, New York AG Letitia James publicized a $250 million suit against the Trump Organization, accusing them of overinflating assets to get low-interest loans.

The MSNBC host had a guest to discuss the topic, but before he tossed it over to the attorney and former FBI agent Asha Rangappa, Melber took a shot at the network.

Melber referred to Fox News (h/t Mediaite) as a “MAGA snowflake bubble where you’re not going to be triggered. You’re not going to be pressed and shout out to anyone who needs a bubble. You know you can live in a snowflake bubble if you want.”

Neither side is immune to these types of criticisms when having people of Trump’s status where a rival network believes that the host isn’t asking the tough questions. 

Fox News has done this in the past when members of the Biden administration go on CNN or MSNBC.

On Thursday, CNN Chief International Anchor Christiane Amanpour shared details of an interview with Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi, which didn’t happen. 

Raisi insisted that Amanpour wear a hijab while conducting the interview despite the location being in New York and not Iran. Still, the CNN anchor declined the request leading to the president skipping the interview. 

Many in the news media, including “The View’s” Alyssa Farah Griffin, applauded Amanpour’s decision to walk away from the interview rather than wear a hijab. 

“Iranian President Raisi demanded @amanpour wear a headscarf for their scheduled interview,” Farah Griffin tweeted

“In a powerful display of solidarity with the women of Iran, she declined, & he refused to do the interview. Stand with the women of Iran & say her name #MahsaAmini.

This with Amanpour would have been Raisi’s first interview after protests are sweeping Iran with women burning their hijabs after the death last week of Amini, following her arrest by the “morality police.”
