Republican Senator Tim Scott excoriated ‘The View’ co-host Sunny Hostin after she referred to Black Republicans as an “oxymoron.”

A segment on the show this past Friday went off the rails a bit as a conversation between Hostin, co-host Ana Navarro, and guest co-host Lindsey Granger grew heated.

Hostin asked Granger if she was a Republican, then interrupted with the comment, “I feel like it’s an oxymoron, a Black Republican.”

Having already delivered one ignorant comment, she expanded upon that idea by delivering another ignorant comment and roping Navarro, who has worked in Republican administrations but is now known for her Never Trump views, into the controversy.

“I don’t understand either of you,” Hostin said. “I don’t understand Black Republicans and I don’t understand Latino Republicans.”

Over the course of my time in politics, the far left has called me a “prop,” a “token,” the N-word, “Uncle Tim,” and worse all because I am a Black Republican.

This type of divisive behavior is not what America is all about — and it will not stop me from speaking the truth. https://t.co/Wp3EtV9uPq

One could write volumes on the topics Sunny Hostin doesn’t understand, but that’s neither here nor there.

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) posted a clip of the video and responded on social media pointing out that he too has been called many racially derogatory names during his career, but it wasn’t going to stop him.

“Over the course of my time in politics, the far left has called me a ‘prop,’ a ‘token,’ the N-word, ‘Uncle Tim,’ and worse all because I am a Black Republican,” he tweeted.

Added Scott, “This type of divisive behavior is not what America is all about — and it will not stop me from speaking the truth.”

NOT an Oxymoron

Tim Scott has spoken out in the past against those who berate or belittle him over the idea that he could hold conservative values as a black man in Congress.

Scott called out his Democrat colleagues after being accused of being a “token” Republican in a fiery social media rebuke this past June as he worked to draft police reform legislation.

“Not surprising the last 24 hours have seen a lot of ‘token’ ‘boy’ or ‘you’re being used’ in my mentions,” revealed Scott.

And don’t throw “you’re the only black guy they know” at me either. There are only two black Democratic Senators, stop pretending there’s some huge racial diversity gap in the Senate. Ask my Dem colleagues what their staffs look like…I guarantee you won’t like the answer.

Shortly after that, the South Carolina Republican revealed that his office was the recipient of numerous “racist messages” and placed the blame squarely on “liberal Democrats” because of his work on the ultimately doomed bill.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) slammed Scott’s police reform bill as “token” legislation, igniting a firestorm with the racially tinged comments.

Scott tore Durbin to shreds with a simple response: “Y’all still wearing those kente cloths over there [Senator Durbin]?”

He was referring to the kente cloths that Democrats wore as a condescending prop upon introducing their own police reform plan.

The lawmakers were widely ridiculed for one of the more embarrassing photo-ops you’ll ever see.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) later accused Scott and his Republican colleagues of “trying to get away with … the murder of George Floyd.”

As for being told by liberal Democrats that he is ‘being used’ by the Republican Party, Sunny Hostin said the very same thing about Tim Scott after he gave the GOP rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s address to Congress last April.

“Why was [Tim Scott] chosen to give this rebuttal?” Hostin asked on ‘The View.’

“He was chosen because he is the only Black Republican senator. 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 he was used in this way and didn’t take that opportunity to address this type of issue head-on,” she added.

“It struck me that Biden’s speech was certainly presidential.”@Sunny Hostin on the president’s #JointAddress to Congress and Sen. Tim Scott’s GOP response: “I was sort of disappointed that he was used in this way.” https://t.co/f8u2wbJuik pic.twitter.com/gAiwFfbMKr

Navarro meanwhile, showed that she considers Scott to be an oxymoron as well, leaving him out of a discussion on “the two African American senators” in the United States Congress.

Scott is actually the third and longest-serving black senator currently in office.
