In Thursday’s episode of “The View,” radically liberal co-host Sunny Hostin said she believed the Republican Party was losing moderates because it was becoming an “extremist, anti-science, nativist insurgency party,” embracing white supremacists ”.

“A new Gallup poll shows the biggest increase in Democratic Party affiliation in nearly a decade,” began co-host Whoopi Goldberg. “So people seem quite surprised by this. So Sunny, why do you think this left swing seems to be happening? “

Hostin attacks the Republican Party

“You know, I think, Whoopi, this is a direct result of what happened with the former president to a disgraced term, twice impeached,” Hostin replied.

“I’ve said before that you have a Republican Party that I think is unrecognizable to those who are centrist Republicans, those who are just some sort of those conservative Republicans we used to know as John McCain, the Republicans, Republicans Meghan grew up with, ”she continued.

“I read John Boehner’s book,” Hostin added. “And he says in his book, the fools have taken over. And I think the Republican Party is sort of that extremist, anti-science, nativist insurgency party, embracing white supremacists at this point.

“Kevin McCarthy really needs to rethink that strategy, which is that this is a big open party and everyone is welcome,” she said. “Are the Marjorie Taylor Greenes really welcome?” Are Boeberts welcome? Are the Matt Gaetzs welcome to this party? This is what led to the alienation of mainstream Republicans. They don’t want to be extremists.

Hostin says Trump made GOP ‘morally bankrupt’

It comes days after Hostin claimed that former President Donald Trump put the Republican Party into “moral bankruptcy.”

“He’s someone who changed the very moral fabric of the Republican Party. The Republican Party is no longer the party of family values. It is the feast of the insurrection. It is the party that is morally bankrupt.

“There was a president who, you know, paid the porn stars, who cheated on his wife, who was three times married, who did all these bad things and still had these bigoted followers. His playbook was to deny, deny, deny the world of alternative facts, the world of the gas lamp, the gas lamp, the gas lamp, ”Hostin added.

“When you change the moral fabric of your party and Kevin McCarthy tells you things like we have a big tent party, you are all welcome, of course you will have someone like Matt Gaetz on the scared floor of Congress. . showing pictures of naked women, ”she concluded.
