The ladies of The View got into a heated exchange on Friday, resulting in co-host Sunny Hostin saying she doesn’t understand Black and Latino Republicans —she even said “I feel like it’s an oxymoron, a Black Republican.”

From Fox News…

During a segment focused on the potential conflict of interest between newly tapped White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and her partner, CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux, Hostin, co-host Ana Navarro and guest co-host Lindsey Granger broke into an all out war of words, as the former declared she didn’t understand Black or Latino Republicans.

The segment began with the co-hosts debating whether it was a potential issue for Jean-Pierre and Malveaux to be in their respective positions given their relationship. 

Navarro, Hostin and co-host Sara Haines pushed back on the notion that it created a conflict of interest; however, Granger argued it was necessary to be realistic “about what happens when you’re in bed with somebody,” and that people didn’t want to see situations where the media gives a politician an advantage.

The conversation broke down when Navarro pushed back on Granger, declaring that the ability for people with a relationship to work in government and the media without acting unethically was “a novel idea” for a supporter of former President Donald Trump. 

Granger declared that she didn’t agree with everything Trump did and that she was “a Black woman first.” 

“Are you a Republican?” Hostin asked Granger, to which she confirmed she was.

“I feel like it’s an oxymoron, a Black Republican,” Hostin said, interrupting her.
