During a fiery segment of “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin argued Republicans who supported Trump including Senator Ted Cruz, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany have no right quoting MLK Jr. because they “enabled a racist president.”
“We saw an insurrection on our nation’s Capitol,” Hosting said “We saw that there are people just like Dr. King said that would much rather have white supremacy rather than this multiracial democracy that he wished for. So, I would say that in order for us to really live out his legacy, his dream, is that we must demand truth before unity.”
She continued “I saw today, unbelievably, in my view, Ted Cruz, Kayleigh McEnany, Ronna McDaniel, Melania Trump, quoting Dr. King, tweeting Dr. King. Those are the same people, like Melania Trump with this birther lie, Ted Cruz challenging the Electoral College. Kayleigh McEnany over and over again with her propaganda. How dare they. How dare they try to quote Dr. King on the celebration of his birthday when they enabled, enabled a racist president causing this insurrection and attack on our democracy.”
“So while we have some progress, we just have such a long way to go,” Hostin concluded.
