Are you a Republican?
If so, Sunny Hostin has news about your party.
And I must say…it isn’t good.
On Wednesday’s installment of The View, the attorney schooled America on the nature of the GOP: It’s a party of extremists.
She lamented the paltry number of peeps willing to join Democrats in impeaching the former POTUS.
For inciting an insurrection, that is:
“45 out of 50 Republicans think that former President Trump should face zero accountability for inciting an insurrection, not only against our Capitol, but against our very democracy.”
She did commend the crew for their unity, but you might not call it an effective compliment:
“The current Republican Party — um, there is no rift in the current Republican Party.”
“This is a Far Right extremist party.”
Some finer details:
“This is the party of Marjorie Green. This is the party of Q-Anon.”
“This is the MAGA party.”
“This is the Confederate flag party, the Confederate statue party, the kids in a cage party, the build-a-wall party, the anti-science party, the anti-climate change party, the nationalist party, the isolationist party.”
Sounds like quite the party they’re having.
The way Sunny sees it, if you’re currently a card-carrying member, you’re gonna have to cancel your subscription.
It’s the only road to redemption:
“There is no rift. This is the Republican Party of today, and I really think that if there are, uh, Republicans that do not agree with this Trumpism, with this MAGA party, with this type of party, they are going to need to leave this party and start their own. Because if they stand with the 45 out of 50 Republican senators, that tells this country that they support everything that those other Republicans believe in.”
As stated by The Daily Wire, Sunny’s on a bit of roll:
Other than Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin has been The View co-host most consistently hostile toward Republicans as of late, offering not an inch of understanding or charity in her characterizations. Just last week, on Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, she scolded all Republicans that celebrated the man’s life.
She certainly wasn’t impressed with the Right ruminating on a Dream:
“Dr. King in 1967, again said, you know, ‘There has been some progress, but we must not allow this progress to cause us to engage in a superficial, dangerous optimism.’ … We saw such promise. And then on January 6th, we see that white supremacy is very much so alive and well. … I saw today, unbelievably, in my view, Ted Cruz, Kayleigh McEnany, Ronna McDaniel, Melania Trump quoting Dr. King, tweeting Dr. King. Those are the same people that were, like Melania Trump with this birther lie, Ted Cruz challenging the Electoral College, you know, Kayleigh McEnany, just over and over again with her propaganda.”
Now more than ever, we are reminded of the power of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words, calling on all of us to have ‘the courage to face the uncertainties of the future,’ ‘as we continue our forward stride toward the city of freedom.’

Her bottom line on MLK day easily integrates with Wednesday’s waxing:
“You enabled a racist President.”
“On January 6th, we see that white supremacy is very much so alive and well,” @Sunny Hostin says. “We saw that there are people just like Dr. King said that they’d much rather have white supremacy rather than this multiracial democracy that he wished for.” https://t.co/cVclFZQmjA pic.twitter.com/h20dk0VWNl

But before he was Commander-in-Chief — before The Donald donned the scarlet letter of a poisonous party — he was hailed in rap music, mentored black cultural influencer Russell Simmons, and there was this:

For a party to have changed a man so much, it must surely be a sinister soirée.
