Just Another Day at ‘The View’: Sunny Hostin Says This About Republican Voters
Sunny Hostin, co-host of the daytime talk show The View, has said that anyone who votes Republican is “complicit” in school shootings. I’ll give you a minute…
Hostin made the comments in response to a conversation that comedian Larry David and X-owner Elon Musk reportedly had at a wedding.
Both men attended a wedding in St. Tropez, France, and David had taken the opportunity to confront Musk about supporting Republicans.
“Do you just want to murder kids in schools?” David asked the billionaire, according to a new Musk biography by Walter Isaacson — apparently in reference to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
Musk was reportedly taken aback by the question, responding, “No, no … I’m anti-kid murder.”
“Then how could you vote Republican?” David asked.
Joy Behar cheered David for confronting Musk, noting that he might not have another chance to do so, but Alyssa Farah Griffin pushed back, saying that it was unfair to paint everyone who voted a certain way with the same brush.
But Hostin sided with Behar, arguing that anyone who saw that Republicans were not banning certain firearms and still voted for them was “complicit” in the shootings that she believed were the natural result.
“AR-15s are weapons of mass destruction that should have no place in anyone’s hands in this country,” Hostin insisted. “And if you vote Republican, I believe that you are complicit in that unless you are actively working day and night to change that within your party.”
Hostin’s comments have been met with criticism from some Republicans.
“Sunny Hostin’s comments are outrageous and divisive,” said Republican National Committee spokeswoman Ronna McDaniel. “She is blaming millions of law-abiding Americans for the actions of a deranged criminal. This is the kind of rhetoric that only serves to further divide our country.”
