Continuing her smear against black Americans that dare to disagree with her far-left progressive politics, “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin said Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) was chosen to give the rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s congressional address strictly because he’s black.
At the top, Hostin praised Joe Biden’s speech as presidential, marked by a warm demeanor and “inspirational” tone.
“We haven’t seen that kind of speech in four years. So I was really enamored of that,” she said. “I was also really happy that he called out white supremacy. He clearly said that white supremacy is — our intelligence agencies have determined that white supremacy is terrorizing our country. That is just the truth of it.”
When it came to Tim Scott, Hostin said he fell back on “buzzwords” and was disappointed he did not condemn America as a “racist country.”
“I was disappointed that he said America is not a racist country without also talking about the systemic racism that is plaguing this country,” Hostin said.
“Why was he chosen to give this rebuttal? He was chosen because he is the only black Republican senator,” she added. “He is that person. He is the person that Republicans want to put out front because of the problem of racism in this country and he knows that. So I was sort of disappointed that he was used in this way and didn’t take that opportunity to address that type of — this type of issue head-on. That was a disappointment to me.”
Sunny Hostin took this attack against Tim Scott even further on her Twitter feed where she compared him to the lead character in “Get Out.”

This type of talking point is nothing new for Sunny Hostin, who called the many black conservatives “props” for being present at last year’s RNC.
“You know, you hear all of this coming from the Trump campaign about how black people have nothing to lose and they are gonna overwhelmingly vote for Trump, and you had all the black people props all over the RNC talking about all the stuff they’ve done for the black community,” she said. “You heard Sarah Sanders yesterday talking about all the things that have been done for the black community by the Trump administration. They’re not voting for Trump. So, the poll wasn’t really that surprising to me because Latinos have been very supportive, and have voted Republican for quite some time.”
As The Daily Wire reported, other leftists on Twitter were equally vile toward Tim Scott, referring to him as an “Uncle Tom” and a sellout because he dared to denounce critical race theory.
“Today, kids are being taught that the color of their skin defines them again and if they look a certain way, they’re an oppressor. From colleges to corporations to our culture, people are making money and gaining power by pretending we haven’t made any progress at all by doubling down on the divisions we’ve worked so hard to heal,” he said. “You know this stuff is wrong. Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country. It’s backwards [sic] to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination. And it’s wrong to try to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present.”
