The View’s Sunny Hostin sparked outrage after calling for the abolition of the GOP party and calling Republicans a “white supremacist party” and a “gun slaughter”.
The 53-year-old host wasn’t afraid to speak her mind on Thursday’s episode, as the ladies of The View discussed recent mass shootings, including Wednesday’s Tulsa hospital shooting.
The New York native began ranting after admitting she didn’t always agree with Joy [Behar]’ — which started the discussion — but she agreed with her 79-year-old co-host about Republicans.
Behar said earlier in the segment, “I always say, ‘Don’t vote Republican.’
Sonny agreed, explaining, “So I’m with you now, Joy. Down with the Republicans, down with the party. Because the party as it stands now, it’s the party of white supremacy, it’s the party of the insurgents, the party of the massacres at this point. It’s the party… you can’t trust it.’
Sunny Hostin, 53, sparked outrage after calling for the abolition of the GOP party and calling Republicans a “white supremacist party” and a “gun slaughter.” She said, “Get rid of the Republicans, get rid of the party. Because as the party stands now, it is the party of white supremacy, it is the party of the insurgents, the party of the massacres at this point.
Joy Behar, 79, sparked the conversation on Thursday’s episode by telling viewers not to “vote for Republicans” until gun reform is complete
Behar encouraged the conversation by saying, “Here’s the motto: Vote the Democrats and save a Republican’s job.
‘[Americans] can go back [voting for Republicans] after we got gun laws.
“I think, for now, the way to save their jobs — because Republicans get voted out if they vote gun safety,” she continued. “The only way to keep their jobs is to vote Democrats. Then they can do whatever they want in the Republican Party, and we’ll have more Democrats to enforce the laws,” the Behar said.
Hostin agreed that Republicans were blocking gun reform and called Mitch McConnell a “liar.”
The two women campaigned strongly for the Republican Party to be temporarily abolished in order to get Democrats in the legislature’s seat to reform gun laws. Behar (left) told viewers they could go back [voting for Republicans] after we got gun laws
“You can never trust Mitch McConnell and his word because he’s a filthy liar and has been for quite some time,” she ranted. “Republicans are in lockstep against gun safety because all they care about is power.
“Bring the AR-15 off the planet, I think. Get rid of supplies, get rid of those weapons of war, and it’s not going to happen with Republicans in power,” she said.
Guest host Tara Setmayer also agreed, saying, “That’s why I left the Republican Party.”
Also earlier in the week, controversial host Whoopi Goldberg said AR-15s should be banned and owners “put in jail.”
‘Report her and we’ll put her in jail.’ she said on Wednesday. The host also said they would “come” for guns if women could no longer get abortions.
Since the segment aired this morning, Twitter has criticized the two presenters. Behar has taken the brunt of the criticism, as the Liberal has been quite vocal on Twitter about voting out “power-hungry congressmen” like Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tx) and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
The moderator even retweeted a post about Republicans being the reason for “democracies dying out.”
Behar has been very vocal about the Republican vote over the past few weeks on Twitter
Behar’s recent attacks on the Republican Party have focused primarily on gun violence, which she mentioned on Thursday’s episode.
The Williamsburg native got passionate and emotional when she shared with viewers that more than 600 children have died from gun violence in 2022, prompting her to reiterate her stance on voting Republicans out.
The Gun Violence Archive (GVA) has documented 20 more recent shootings since the Uvalde shooting on May 24. GVA defines a mass shooting as four or more people shot or killed.
May 26 is the only day in the last week that there hasn’t been a mass shooting, according to the group.
