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.
House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel
Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.
“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.
House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.
“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.
“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.
“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
