Ana Navarro and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) clashed in a fiery exchange about Venezuela on “The View,” leading the political commentator to warn the senator not to “mansplain” subjects to her.
Paul had also clashed with the hosts of the TV show about President Trump’s decision to order the withdrawal of U.S. forces from northern Syria, near the Turkish border.
The clash with Navarro on Venezuela was sparked after the GOP strategist asked Paul if it was fair for Republicans to release ads saying Democrats “will turn the United States into Venezuela.”
“If you vote for a socialist, you might get socialism,” Paul responded.
That prompted a sharp retort from Navarro.
“Come on, don’t do that!” Navarro said. “Maduro is not a socialist. He’s a corrupt, murderous thug who is starving his people,” she said referring to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.
