Ana Navarro knocks television coverage of the queen’s funeral during Hurricane Fiona

Ana Navarro, a political pundit and newly minted co-host of ABC’s daytime talk show “The View,” slammed major television networks for their wall-to-wall coverage of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday, amid the devastation of Hurricane Fiona in Puerto Rico.

“Folks, I respect the Queen as much as the next person. I offer my condolences to the Brits and all who loved her. But can I please get some news and footage of the effects of Fiona in Puerto Rico? For those who need reminding, they are American citizens in distress,” Navarro wrote in a tweet.

“The View” was preempted on Monday by ABC’s special coverage of Elizabeth’s funeral. The major broadcast networks and cable channels have been providing live continuous coverage of the proceedings, with some sending top anchors and reporters to England to cover the events.

Fiona made landfall in Puerto Rico on Sunday, causing severe flooding in a matter of minutes and knocking out power on the entire island.

In an earlier tweet, Navarro said she wishes she “could watch the Queen’s funeral without so much commentary.”

“It’s been 11 days of endless royal talk. It makes it hard to focus on the solemnity of the ceremony,” she said. “Glad she’s finally going to rest in peace.”
