Sunny Hostin once again hit back at a Twitter user who tried to diminish her stance. The co-host of “The View” remarked on President Donald Trump’s racist remarks about Africa and Haiti and one viewer didn’t like what she heard.
“For this president to say that [Haiti] is a ‘shithole,’ I felt like he was talking about my [Haitain] father-in-law, like he was talking about my husband, like he was talking about my Haitian children,” Hostin says. “And I am so offended.”
In response, a viewer claimed no one has ever seen Hostin traveling to Haiti or any African countries, claiming she could be abducted or assaulted.
And in true Hostin fashion, the senior legal correspondent and analyst, who recently came back from a trip to Haiti, schooled @Lovelyxillusion.
Oh really @Lovelyxillusion? I’ve been to Haiti and to Africa. Can you say the same or are you talking out of ignorance? https://t.co/AGTtKeBsNn

Sometimes you should block people just for the heck of it. Rose-colored illusion is just an example.

Yet Hostin’s remark garnered plenty of support, too.

Preach Sunny ! Oh and parts of the US aren’t dangerous? Poor ? People living in their pretty gated communities need to keep quit. Americans with this superiority complex need to go away. You are far more qualified to speak on these issues. #trollsgoaway
