Tim Scott Issues A Wake-Up Call To ‘The View’ Hosts Who Mocked Black Republicans

For generations, the Democratic Party has taken Black voters for granted. As November’s election approaches, however, it’s clear that Joe Biden won’t have the near-universal support of this voting bloc that his party has typically enjoyed.

That’s due in part to Biden’s undeniable incompetence, but it’s also a sign of a more fundamental shift. At least that’s what Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said in a conversation about the ridicule he received from co-hosts of ABC’s “The View.”

According to Fox News:

“Women of the View: My goodness gracious. Let me just be plain and simple. Without the Black vote, there is no Democratic Party,” Scott told “Hannity” on Monday. “And since I was elected in 2010 to Congress, before that, no Black Republicans [in Congress]. But since then, there’s been seven.”

Scott said that “President Trump’s policies have led to a surge” of Black Republican political candidates taking office at the “city level, to the county level, to the state level, and in Congress.”

“We’re seeing Black city council members, we’re seeing Black assembly members all across this nation,” he said. “There is a wave of Black elected officials who happen to be Republicans. But the Black vote is following.”

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin had said Friday that Scott was not making a strong case for Black conservatives. Scott got under Hostin’s skin last year when he rejected her beliefs on the show about systemic racism.

“Just to speak for African-American voters,” Hostin said. “If anyone thinks that Tim Scott is going to bring over a bunch of Black men, they need to just get with it, because Tim Scott is the only African-American senator in the Republican Party for a reason.”

Biden’s loss of support among Black voters has been obvious and is a common topic of discussion ahead of the election.

Meanwhile, Scott is reportedly on Donald Trump’s shortlist of potential running mates and he has been using his platform to make some waves during the election cycle.

He emphatically predicted a second Trump term during a recent interview with NBC’s Kristen Welker, per The Hill:

Welker then asked Scott whether he would commit to accepting the results of the 2024 election.

“At the end of the day, the 47th president of the United States will be President Donald Trump. And I’m excited to get back to low inflation, low unemployment,” Scott replied before Welker cut in.

“Wait, wait, senator. Yes or no; yes or no? Will you accept the election results of 2024, no matter who wins?”

“That is my statement,” Scott replied.

Here’s a clip of a different response to the commentary by co-hosts of “The View”:
