ABC’s ‘The View’ Co-Host Slammed For Calling Black Republicans An ‘Oxymoron’


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Another day, another outrageous comment from a liberal host on ABC’s “The View.”

ABC’s liberal daytime gabfest went off the rails after co-host Sunny Hostin referred to Black Republicans as an “oxymoron” and said she couldn’t understand why any Latinos or Blacks could be in the GOP.

The segment began when the table discussed newly selected White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and her partner, CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux, and whether there’s a conflict of interest.

Hostin and co-host Ana Navarro immediately teamed up and went after guest co-host Lindsey Granger.

Granger argued it was important to have discussions “about what happens when you’re in bed with somebody,” and that people didn’t want to see situations where the media gives a politician an advantage.

When Hostin went after Black Republicans, Granger tore her to pieces.

Below is a transcript of the exchange:

NAVARRO: “Okay, I know this may be a novel point, a novel idea, for somebody who’s a supporter of Trump, but there are people who are capable of being related and not having ethical interests.”

GRANGER: “Have I ever said that I was a supporter of Trump? There’s many things that I don’t stand by that Trump did. Trump has done things that are racist. I’m a black woman first, so always understand that. But I do say that I have many conservative values that I will talk to you about, and so if you look at your network that you’re standing behind —“


HOSTIN: “Are you a Republican?”

GRANGER: “Yes, and when you look at your network that you’re standing behind, you’re saying that you look at Chris Cuomo—“

HOSTIN: “I feel like that’s an oxymoron: a black Republican.”

GRANGER: “You feel like it’s an oxymoron?”

HOSTIN: “I do.”

GRANGER: “Why? Your friend right here is a Republican.”

NAVARRO: “We’ve had this conversation many times.”

GRANGER: “You do. You say you feel like it’s an oxymoron that you’re Catholic but you also are pro-life.”

HOSTIN: “I don’t understand either of you.”

GRANGER: “You don’t understand yourself then.”

HOSTIN: “I understand myself. I don’t understand either of you.”

GRANGER: “It’s not a personal conversation. I don’t — we’re having a personal conversation about CNN and how things can get leaked.”


HOSTIN: “I don’t understand black Republicans and I don’t understand Latino Republicans. I don’t.”

NAVARRO: “Today, this is not about me and it’s not about you. It’s about celebrating Karine Jean-Pierre and the history she’s making.”


BEHAR: “And we will be right back.”



Twitter users quickly responded to Hostin’s comments and tore into her for her comments.

Twitter user Jennifer-Ruth Green, who is running for Congress in Indiana’s 1st Congressional District, tweeted: “Hi, @sunny. I’m Black and a proud Republican. I was raised to love America and value the principles of faith, family, personal responsibility, and service to the country. I just wanted to introduce myself.”

The Hodgetwins, conservative comedian brothers Keith and Kevin Hodge, tweeted: “Sunny Hostin trending for all the wrong reasons. Black & Brown people are not allowed to be Republican? What a racist thing to imply, what a fool!”

Political commentator Dave Rubin tweeted that he would donate $10,000 to a charity if Hostin were to debate Candace Owens on The View. “Anyone else willing to toss in some cash?” he asked.

Owens responded to him on Twitter, writing, “This will never happen. The Left doesn’t debate because they lie. Easier to stay in a safe space to lie than to confront the truth.”
