(ThePatriotSource.com)- Sunny Hostin, best known for being a co-host of that awful show where women shout at each other (The View) made a racist attack against black conservatives this week. Hostin referred to black conservatives as “people props” that she said the Republican party would use to gain votes from black Americans.
It’s the most infuriating kind of logical fallacy because it means that no matter how many black people vote for or support the Republican Party, Hostin can always make the same claim. She can just call them props and move on.
Hostin didn’t seem to acknowledge the fact that President Donald Trump’s support from black Americans is approaching 30% when Republicans traditionally struggle to get numbers into the double digits.
Are all those people just props?
Hostin made the comments during a discussion about a poll showing Biden losing support from Hispanic voters in Florida. The poll showed President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden neck and neck in the state, but with Biden leading among older voters and Trump leading among Hispanics. It’s the exact opposite of what most Democrats would expect.
Hostin said she wasn’t all that surprised by the results but inaccurately suggested that black Americans are not planning on voting for the president.
“I actually wasn’t surprised to hear it because Cubans in Florida typically do vote Republican,” she said. “That wasn’t a surprise to me. It wasn’t a surprise to me that black voters are overwhelmingly the backbone of the Democratic Party – 83% in favor of Biden.”

Again, she didn’t acknowledge recent polls showing President Trump with more black support than any other Republican candidate. In August, a poll showed the president’s approval among black voters rising from 15% to 24%, with other polls showing that approval rating reaching as high as 28%.
“You know, you hear all of this coming from the Trump campaign about how black people have nothing to lose and they are gonna overwhelmingly vote for Trump, and you had all the black people props all over the RNC talking about all the stuff they’ve done for the black community,” she added. “You heard Sarah Sanders yesterday talking about all the things that have been done for the black community by the Trump administration. They’re not voting for Trump.”
Well, we’ll see in November. But whatever happens, Hostin proved that no matter what the Republicans do, the left will always accuse them of using black people as props…despite the Democrats holding black voters to ransom for decades.
