Ana Navarro Hits Back at Donald Trump Jr Over Obesity Dig: 'Dad is a Phone Call Away'

Ana Navarro has hit back at Donald Trump Jr. after he made a dig about obesity in a tweet about The View co-host's positive COVID-19 test result.

Kamala Harris' live interview on The View was delayed on Friday after Navarro and co-host Sunny Hostin, who are both fully vaccinated, tested positive for COVID-19 just moments before the vice president was to join them on set.

Harris was later interviewed remotely from a different room in the ABC studio. "Sunny and Ana are strong women and I know they are fine," she told Joy Behar. "But it really also does speak to the fact that they are vaccinated and vaccines make all the difference because otherwise we would be concerned about hospitalization and worse."

@DonaldJTrumpJr, thanks for your concern.

I don’t have COVID.
Fortunately for you, if you want to have a conversation about the effects of obesity on people with COVID, your dad is a phone call away…assuming he answers your calls.

Or just ask your sister to call him for you. https://t.co/1v6GISIt5B

Trump Jr. tweeted a clip of Harris' comments later on Friday, adding: "Given the Ana Navarro news, I think it's time for a national conversation about the dangers of Covid-19 & obesity," he wrote.

Navarro on Saturday tweeted that she was "feeling good" and hoping Friday's test result was "just an inopportune, very public false positive." She added: "Please get vaccinated and stay safe folks, so we can beat this damn thing, once and for all."

She later confirmed that she had gotten a third negative PCR test result.

Then she fired back at Trump Jr., the eldest son of former President Donald Trump, suggesting that if he was concerned about the effects of obesity on people with the COVID-19, he should speak with his father.

At 6 feet 3 inches tall and 244 pounds, the 75-year-old former president qualified as obese, according to the results of his annual physical exam that was released in June last year.

He tested positive for COVID-19 in early October 2020 and was later taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment.

The New York Times reported in February that Trump had been far sicker with the disease than publicly acknowledged at the time, and officials had feared he was going to be placed on a ventilator.

Navarro and Trump Jr. have been contacted for additional comment.
