‘Crap happens’: Ana Navarro backs public figures being confronted in heated segment with Don Lemon

CNN host Don Lemon ironically found himself defending Fox News host Tucker Carlson from Ana Navarro’s harpy attack after he was confronted by an aggressive in-your-face leftist over COVID vaccinations in front of his daughter at a Montana fly fishing store.

Navarro, who is also a CNN pundit, locked horns with Lemon on Monday over the confrontation. Republican contributor Scott Jennings was also in attendance for the segment that covered Carlson clashing with a man named Dan Bailey who had someone record the exchange. He posted the video to Instagram afterward. Bailey called Carlson “the worst human being known to man,” among other things in the video.

Although Lemon is no fan of Carlson’s and had “mixed emotions” over the incident, he couldn’t stomach the attack. “Let me tell you this, I don’t like it,” Lemon declared. “I don’t like it when people do that because I would not want it to happen to me. But I have mixed emotions because Tucker has done this to people before. Tucker said some really nasty and silly things about me. The next day, there were paparazzi in front of my house, hiding, taking pictures.”

“So, I don’t want it to happen to anyone. I don’t want it to happen to Tucker. But when you do things like that, I don’t know. I’m just saying that’s the real deal. That’s how I feel about it,” he remarked. “I think that what Tucker says much of the time is completely reprehensible and divorced from reality, but he has a right to be in a space and not be accosted and not be ambushed by anyone.”

Navarro jumped in, attempting to pummel Carlson and defend the leftist who approached him in the store.

“I actually thought the guy who confronted him was quite polite, was not shouting, was not violent, and was not aggressive in any way. He expressed his opinion in the same way that Tucker Carlson expresses his opinion on a nightly basis, on a much larger platform,” she said.

She didn’t mention the fact that this all took place in front of Carlson’s daughter. Navarro did insensitively note, however, that “crap happens, okay? We get remunerated for giving our opinion and that comes with good and that comes with bad. So put on your big boy pants or your big girl pants and get on with life.”

The CNN analyst went out of her way to try and make the whole occurrence about COVID and not about Carlson or the bad behavior of the aggressive man who accosted him. She informed Lemon, “It’s about COVID and it’s about life and death. I think people are very raw and emotional and angry about that in particular.”

Later in the segment, she would go on to justify the attack further, telling Lemon, “I also want to acknowledge why people are angry. Listen, they’ve been spewing out crap about COVID and anti-Fauci stuff and anti-vaccine stuff, and people are dying. And people have every right to be furious.”

Lemon had had enough and shot back at her, “That doesn’t mean that you have to intimidate people in public. That doesn’t mean that you have to get in people’s faces in public.”

Ironically, at the end of the segment, Navarro’s screen froze and Jennings quipped to Lemon, “It’s a rare night, Don, when you get to speak for me. This is amazing.”

Navarro also made a mistake when she claimed that, “The guy never touched Tucker Carlson.” Both men made contact during the confrontation.

Leftists who follow Don Lemon were very disappointed in his defense of Carlson and the hatred was palpable against the conservative Fox News host:
