The nastiness of hosts on the high-IQ television show ‘The View’ was out on full force Thursday when the panel took time away from their main topic of discussion to air their dirty laundry against Justices Clarence Thomas and Amy Coney Barrett.
Panelists on the show accused Thomas of being a race traitor to black Americans and also agreed that he was not the correct black man to replace the late former Justice Thurgood Marshall. Justice Barret was ripped on by the hosts as well; ‘View’ co-host Joy Behar herself used air quotes when describing Barret as “a woman.”
The bigotry of the segment quickly began after ‘View’ co-host Sunny Hostin suggested that Clarence Thomas is a bad representative for black Americans.
SARA HAINES: And of course, the representation more than anything, you pointed out, first black woman. There’s only been two black men. Those numbers are a little shocking.
SUNNY HOSTIN: And one doesn’t really represent the black community.
SARA HAINES: NoNews Busters
The notorious Joy Behar joined in on the fun, suggesting that both Amy Coney Barrett and Clarence Thomas were nominated as token minorities based on their race and gender and thus proving that they do not represent the American people.
The ‘View’ co-host used air quotes both when describing Thomas as “a black man” and Barret “a woman.”
“You could make the case that somebody like Amy Coney Barrett was put in there because she’s a white woman,” Behar griped. “Who they say, well, she’ll go against abortion rights and she’s ‘a woman.’ So that was deliberate, I think. Clarence Thomas, ‘a black guy, a black man,’ a justice, okay, I’ll give it to him.”
“He’s a smart guy, but he is to the right of Attila the Hun, this guy,” she continued. “And they put him in there saying, oh, a black man will go against voting rights, which is what he does.”
This statement by Behar of course ignored that the function of a Supreme Court justice is to simply interpret the United States Constitution when making rulings that affect the lives of ALL the American people — not to represent citizens based on their racial status.
As if the previous comments were already not bad enough, Hostin jumped back into the segment to racistly suggest that Thomas is the wrong type of black person to receive a job on the Supreme Court.
“It’s terribly disrespectful to appoint someone like Clarence Thomas with his philosophies to the seat of Thurgood Marshall, a civil rights activist,” she sneered.
