“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin called for the Republican party to be erased from politics, after labeling it the “party of white supremacy” and “gun massacres” on air.
The show disseminated the recent rash of mass shootings that has plagued the country since the Buffalo grocery store massacre a few weeks ago, which led to the Robb Elementary School shooting that killed 19 children, and culminated in Wednesday’s Tulsa medical facility shooting, which killed four.
Liberal co-host Joy Behar, 79, teed up Hostin on Thursday’s show, when she remarked, “I always say: “Don’t vote for Republicans.” Hostin, 53, claimed she does not “always agree” with Behar’s opinions, but was totally on board with the sentiment.
“So I’m now with you, Joy. Get rid of Republicans, get rid of the party. Because as the party stands now, it’s the party of white supremacy, it’s the party of insurrectionists, the party of massacres at this point. It’s the party… you can’t trust it,” she said in an inflammatory statement.
Behar gleefully added, “Here’s the motto: Vote for Democrats and save a Republican’s job.” She said Americans can go back to voting for Republicans after national gun control laws are passed.
She ridiculously implied that GOP politicians vote with the Democrats in order to maintain their positions in the government.
“I think, for now, the way to save their jobs – because Republicans are going to get voted out if they vote for gun safety,” Behar ranted. “The only way to preserve their jobs is to vote for Democrats. Then they can do whatever they want in the Republican Party and we’ll have more Democrats to get the laws done.”
Hostin chimed back in to bash Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell as a “liar.”
“You can’t trust Mitch McConnell and his word, ever, because he’s a filthy liar and has been for quite some time. Republicans get in lockstep against gun safety because all they care about is power,” Hostin concluded. “Get the AR-15s off the planet, in my view. Get rid of bump stocks, get rid of these weapons of war and it’s not going to happen with Republicans in power.”
