South Carolina Senator and 2024 GOP presidential candidate Tim Scott dropped by Thursday night’s Hannity to react to some racially charged allegations made by daytime talk show hosts on The View.
From Fox News:
Scott fired back at Sunny Hostin and the hosts of ABC’s “The View” on Thursday, after what he considered a racially-charged attack on his relationship status.
Hostin said that there should be concern over a figure like Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, coming into a ‘President Scott’s‘ life and potentially influencing him.
Virginia Thomas has been criticized on the left for her conservative activism while her husband sits on the bench and hears cases that may have connections to subjects pertaining to such activism.
On “Hannity,” host Sean Hannity pointed out the racial element of Hostin’s remarks, noting Justice Thomas – a Black man from Savannah – married a White woman from the Great Plains.
“The Democratic Party and the progressive left, they are stuck in Jim Crow, 1920s and 30s,” said Scott, who himself hails from North Charleston, S.C.”
“They do not want my life story to be told because it disrupts the racist lies of the radical left,” Scott says of The View.
“Why are these women at The View so obsessed with you?” Hannity asks. “I think you may need to go back on The View and kick their a** again.”
