Watch: 'The View's' Sunny Hostin Gets Her Just Deserts in Incredibly Racist Segment

As I’ve said before, if one wanted to draw up an apt, disturbing portrait of what the rabid pits of the Democratic fever swamps actually look like on any given day, they wouldn’t find a more fitting example to work with than to flip their televisions on to ABC for another mind-numbing episode of “The View,” where self-loathing so-called progressives and Never Trumpers open their mouths on a daily basis and let the inevitable ignorance, stupidity, and hate-filled intolerance for differing viewpoints spew forth.


Tuesday was no different, except in this case the show’s most notoriously “woke” co-host, Sunny Hostin, finally got her just deserts in an unintentionally revealing segment where she showed viewers who she really is.

The topic under “discussion” was 2024 presidential contender possibilities, where names like Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom and failed 2018 Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams were lovingly floated. But when it came to talk of the GOP possibilities, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley’s name was mentioned by co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, and that’s when Hostin’s true self made an appearance.

At about the 14 second mark of the below clip, watch and listen as Hostin asks Griffin “what is her real name again?” referring to Haley.

When Griffin responded by telling Hostin that “a lot of people don’t go by their actual real names,” Hostin still pressed her on what it is. Griffin said she didn’t want to mispronounce it but she said it was an Indian name.

Hostin, for who everything has a racial component to it, then suggested that Haley should “lean into being someone of color” as though someone’s race should be a focal point in a presidential campaign over their actual stances on the issues.



Moments later after Hostin declared that Haley was “fake” because she wouldn’t “lean in” to her Indian heritage, Griffin fired back again, this time by pointing out that Haley had actually been using the name “Nikki” since she was a child and kept on using it presumably because she grew up in South Carolina and wanted to lessen the chances she’d be judged and discriminated against because of her heritage.

The woke Hostin still wouldn’t let her implied “sellout” point go, telling Griffin in so many words that privilege was behind those who could supposedly “decide” to be “chameleons” and “not embrace our authenticity.” It was then that co-host Sara Haines chimed in and absolutely busted Hostin, reminding her that not even Hostin herself uses her real name (her full name is Asunción Cummings Hostin). Hostin then insulted millions of Americans by suggesting that she started using “Sunny” because so many people are uneducated in this country and couldn’t pronounce it, though she admitted in a 2021 interview that her real motivation was to advance her career, noting that her “career took off” after she started using Sunny.


At that point co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who also does not go by her real name (Caryn Elaine Johnson), cut the segment and went to commercial, perhaps trying to rescue Hostin before she made an even bigger fool out of herself:

Haley, whose full name as it is listed on her birth certificate is Nimarata Nikki Randhawa, responded accordingly:

Hostin’s entire diatribe was not just identity politics at its absolute worst but it was also incredibly racist, judging a person based on their color and assuming they go by a certain name because they are ashamed of who they are and want to be accepted at all the cool parties.


Imagine for five seconds if a white conservative on another program had made a similar argument about Sunny Hostin or a Democratic member of Congress. Not only would they no longer have a job at this point but they’d probably have to delete their social media accounts and go into hiding.

As a side note to all this, this is what actual privilege looks like, though Hostin would never admit to it. Sunny Hostin can go on TV every day and spout off insanely racist remarks or at the very least racially offensive remarks, and The Usual Suspects don’t care. But if the shoe was on the other foot, the hammer would drop immediately. In fact, the hammer has dropped on many a conservative for saying something that wasn’t even racist but was perceived to be racist because it was a conservative saying it.

In summary, this is – sadly – what obsession with identity politics does to people. It turns them into bitter human beings who are incapable of viewing anything outside the prism of race or sex or whatever. You lose sight of who people are because your sole focus is in their physical characteristics and cultural background over the sum total of the person.

Outside of countering the woke B.S. whenever it makes itself known, one just has to pray that people who think this way will one day see the light because it’s an awfully miserable, lonely place to be.
