“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin is getting slammed for “bigotry” for comments she made about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s skin color.
The ladies praised President Biden for promising to pick a “black woman” to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer because, according to them, Thomas doesn’t count as the diversity needed on the highest court.
Nicholas Fondacaro, the deputy managing editor for the MRC and Newsbusters, shared two clips on Twitter of the exchange Thursday.
“Bigotry from The View,” he wrote.
“There’s only been two black men” in the history of the court,” co-host Sara Hines said during the discussion.

“And one doesn’t really represent the black community,” Hostin said in response.
Earlier in the segment, Joy Behar said that Justice Amy Coney Barrett was only put on the court to “go against abortion rights.”
“You can make the case that someone like Amy Coney Barrett was put in there because she’s a white woman who they say “well she’ll go against abortion rights,” said Behar. “And she’s a woman,” Behar added sarcastically.
Behar then accused Thomas of going against voting rights and how conservatives are in the “tricky business’ ‘ of appointing these conservative justices.
