ABC’s “The View” Co-host Sunny Hostin fired shots at both conservatives and the insect community, comparing white women voters who are voting Republican to “roaches voting for Raid.”
Amid a tense debate on Thursday’s episode, Hostin made the remarks, leaving some of her cohorts speechless, and while one started to comment that she was insulting voters, she was quickly talked over.
“What’s also surprising to me is the abortion issue. I read a poll just yesterday that white, Republican, suburban women are now going to vote Republican. It’s almost like roaches voting for Raid, right?” Hostin said and Alyssa Farah Griffin quickly responded, “That’s insulting to the voter!”
Hostin dug in her heels, adding that women supporting anti-choice candidates are “voting against their own self-interest. Do they want to live in Gilead? Do they want to live in The Handmaid’s Tale?”
Griffin continued to criticize her stance, asking, “do we love democracy or not? Because I’m just saying that it’s — it’s insulting to the voter. People make decisions on what’s right for their family.”
