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.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
