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.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
