Sunny Hostin of “The View” defended Rep. Ilhan Omar amid her controversial tweet and Republican efforts to censure her.
“This is just more of the same of the GOP’s strategy of attacking the squad, of attacking women of color, of attacking Ilhan Omar in particular. It’s evidence of their Islamophobia,” Hostin said.
“It’s really the height of hypocrisy that all of a sudden they are getting together to ban, again women of color rather than sweeping up their own House which is just, at this point, irretrievably dirty. It’s despicable, but it’s just par for the course for this Republican caucus,” she added.
Co-Host Meghan McCain’s take was “Look, I really bristle at the idea of equating the Taliban and Hamas to Israel and the United States. Under the Taliban Ilhan Omar, Congresswoman Omar knows this. She would not be allowed to be in a leadership position. She wouldn’t be allowed to be educated. They’re terrorist organizations. Doing this kind of comparison doesn’t serve her any favors”
