The day following President Biden’s address and subsequent GOP response, The View’s Sunny Hostin claimed Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-SC) “was used in [a] way” to perpetuate a “Republican ideology” that racism doesn’t exist in America.
To Hostin, Scott’s presence alone sends a message. “He was chosen because he is the only black Republican Senator,” Hostin said.
She disagreed with Scott’s use of so-called “buzz words” and wanted him to instead call out “systemic” issues. “I was disappointed that he said America is not a racist country without also talking about the systemic racism that is plaguing this country.”
On Twitter, she compared Scott to Daniel Kaluuya’s character Chris in “Get Out,” a film that symbolizes racist ideologies. In the film, Chris is surrounded by ill-intentioned white people from whom he must escape from or face the consequence of having a white person possess his body.
Hostin also said she was “disappointed” that Biden didn’t hit on student loan forgiveness more. “Student loans are crippling people,” the former prosecutor said. She graduated from Notre Dame Law School in the 90’s.
Scott was trending on Twitter under the nickname “Uncle Tim” in reference to “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” Eventually, Twitter blocked the topic. He claims he is being targeted simply because of his race.
“The left has doubled down that they are going to, not attack my policies, but they’re literally attacking the color of my skin,” the South Carolinian senator said in an interview with Fox News.
Many joined Hostin in calling out Scott for saying America is not racist, but he doubled down. “Their America and my America aren’t the same America, if in fact they think that discriminating is the fastest way to end discrimination,” Scott said.

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall
As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.
“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”
In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.
“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”
“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
