Senator Tim Scott Owns the Lefties on “The View”

Tim Scott joined the ladies on “The View” Monday after many of them made comments about Scott being a Black Republican. He was baited into many traps set by the hosts but eloquently answered the questions while promoting his campaign and the GOP platform to viewers. His responses were applauded by many on the right, saying he “showed up with facts,” leaving the hosts speechless and unable to argue with him. Senator Scott was asked about the “Systemic Racism” in the U.S., to which he reminded the hosts of the show that America “has had an African-American president, vice president, and two secretaries of state.”’

FOX NEWS: Tim Scott earns praise after leaving liberal ‘View’ host ‘speechless’ with ‘undeniable facts’

By Amy Nelson; June 6, 2023

“Outnumbered” panelists praised Republican presidential candidate Tim Scott for his “phenomenal” response to questioning about systemic racism on “The View.” 

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin pressed Scott to define systemic racism, noting that he was the first African-American to be elected to the Senate in the South since Reconstruction. She called Scott and herself the “exception” but not the rule in America.

Scott then reminded Hostin that the U.S. has had an African-American president, vice president and two secretaries of state. 

“That is a dangerous, offensive, disgusting message to send to our young people today that the only way to succeed is by being the exception,” Scott said.

“Outnumbered” co-host Emily Compagno described his answer as “thoughtful, reasoned and prepared.”

Kayleigh McEnany touted Scott’s performance and said he came across good-natured and charming while remaining strong in his position.

“He did so well because he showed up with facts. He’s so positive, so optimistic,” McEnany said. 

“Sunny Hostin looked at him speechless. Nothing to say because those are facts. Those are undeniable, what he said.”

Panelists then turned their aim to Joy Behar, who was not present on the Monday morning edition with Scott. Though Behar is always off work on Mondays, her absence sparked criticism after her recent claim that Scott “doesn’t get” the systemic racism that minorities in America endure. 

“This is a big deal,” Compagno said. “This is a sitting senator, and he’s a presidential candidate. And it’s also the subject and the target of much of her ill-founded, absolutely racist, totally nonsensical, fantastical comments about him. So you would think she would make an exception and show up for work.”

Fox News contributor Guy Benson said Behar could have benefited from listening and learning from the conversation with Scott. But FOX Business’ Kennedy said Behar would have been forced to confront the truth.

“And the truth is her comments were incredibly bigoted and divisive,” Kennedy said. “And that has become par for the course on ‘The View.’”
