Last Monday, Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of “The View,” compared the pickup truck “Trump train” that recklessly invaded a Joe Biden campaign bus trailer in Texas last week to the murderous intimidation of black voters described in the 1988 film “Mississippi Burning”.
His co-hosts joined them with their own expressions of horror at the heinous tactics of the days leading up to the presidential election.
CNN’s Ana Navarro, a guest host on “The View,” called Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Calling him a “shallow little hypocrite” for praising the reckless drivers in the ambush on the highway from Texas. “We love what they did!” it had gushed at a Donald Trump rally in the Miami area on Sunday.
Dozens of pickup trucks swarmed Biden’s country bus and accompanying cars on the busy Interstate 35 outside of Austin on Friday. One hit a Biden campaign vehicle, causing it to slip into a different lane. As the FBI opened an investigation into the incident, Trump praised the threatening truckers as “patriots. “
Goldberg called freeway bullying “one of the most dangerous things you can do,” risking the lives of the drivers involved and those nearby.
“You could have caused all kinds of havoc,” she said in a message to members of “Trump train”. “You could have been killed. … Thank God [bus driver] … slowed down so you can do what you did.
Goldberg said it “looked a lot like a scene from ‘Mississippi Burning’,” which was “really weird to see.”
This film depicts the actual FBI investigation into the murders of three young civil rights activists who worked to register black voters in 1964. The scenes of the threats they faced included frightening prosecutions by armed white supremacists (including police) in cars and vans. .
Navarro lambasted Rubio for praising truckers at the Trump campaign rally at an airport in Miami-Dade County.
“It put people’s lives in danger! People could have been injured. It is an aggression against democracy, against people’s right to vote, ”Navarro said. “This is repression, it instills fear in people, it is absolutely false.”
“Marco Rubio, you who talk about socialism and who talk about dictatorships, to make fun of that… little superficial hypocrite! I am so embarrassed to have ever, ever supported you, ”said Navarro, a longtime Republican strategist and commentator who has become a vocal opponent of Trump.
Co-host Sunny Hostin wondered how Trump, who she said “encouraged fanatics and racists to come out from under their rocks”, would have reacted to the same action from Black Lives Matter protesters, whom he called of “terrorists”.
