Peter Navarro, a former adviser to Donald Trump, appears unhappy that he won’t be able to claim leadership privileges at his trial defiance of Congress starts on Tuesday.

In fact, he tried to vent his anger at a protester’s protest sign – but he didn’t do so well.

Navarro was indicted in June 2022 on charges of refusing to cooperate in a congressional investigation into the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

Although Navarro has claimed that the former president “Judge Amit Mehta clearly invoked executive privilege in their talks about the 2020 election and ruled against the ex-Trump adviser on Wednesday. according to ABC News.

During a hearing on Monday, Mehta cited Navarro’s claims of privilege “pretty weak sauce” and said in Wednesday’s decision the ex-counsel had not presented any concrete evidence to support the claim for managerial privileges.

Navarro seemed upset by the verdict as he discussed it with reporters on the courthouse steps. Although he attacked CNN first, he found another object of anger right behind him: a woman holding a sign that read “Trump lost.”

Not only did the woman make sure to hold the sign behind Navarro for news cameras to see, but she harassed him mercilessly.

“That’s the problem we have in America,” Navarro said. according to The Hill. “Like she has ‘Trump Lost’ and, you know, that’s fine. She expresses her point of view.”

He continued to complain, particularly after one of his supporters tried to block the woman’s sign by holding up an American flag.

“She has a megaphone that can disturb her. But when it’s time for me to give you my opinion, you’ve seen what she did,” Navarro groaned. “She interrupted me while I was speaking. And she won’t even let an American fly the American flag.”

“Shame on you, ma’am,” he continued.

He tried to grab the woman’s sign but didn’t succeed too well, as the clip below clearly shows.

Navarro’s inability to snatch the sign from the protester’s hands ridiculed him on X, the website formerly known as Twitter, especially after the protester reminded him: “Brother, you are already being charged.”
