ABC Legal Analyst Calls Trump Voters 'Un-American’ and ‘Despicable'
Sunny Hostin blast Trump supporters during broadcast
During Sunday's broadcast of ABC’s “The View," network legal analyst Sunny Hostin called those who voted for President Donald Trump “despicable” and “un-American.”
“I am actually surprised that this race has been so close, not because of the pollsters, but more importantly because of the botched job that this president did."
"I mean, for the past four years, this president has shown us that he is a misogynist, that he is homophobic, that he is racist, and that he mismanaged a coronavirus pandemic to the tune of over 250,000 American deaths," she added.
"Yet 50% of America saw all of that and looked the other way to their brothers and their sisters and said, ‘I’m going to vote for him anyway.'”
“That is really disheartening because, for me, that means that you are selfish, right?” she continued.
“I’m not going to say that 50% of Americans are racist and sexist and homophobic, but I will say that that tells me that they will look the other way to that kind of behavior, to the plight of their fellow Americans if personally."
"They feel that they are doing OK and that they will do better under that type of presidency."
"That, I think, is despicable. it is un-American.”

Despite Hostin's remarks, Latino support for Trump in California jumped points in one month, according to a widely-respected poll.
Trump has gained endorsements from rappers like Lil Wayne and partnering with entertainer Ice Cube to create an investment plan for Black America dubbed the Platinum Plan.
Trump unveiled his “Platinum Plan” for black economic empowerment last month in Atlanta.
The $500 billion initiative is aimed at bringing 3 million new jobs to the black community while helping create 500,000 new black-owned businesses.
It also calls for universal school choice and criminal justice reform.
Meanwhile, Rapper Lil Pump threatened to leave America if Trump did not get reelected.
In an explicit post on Twitter, the “Gucci Gang” star announced his decision to leave the U.S. if the results aren’t in his favor.
The call seems to be a response to several liberal celebrities who have vowed to leave the country if President Trump wins reelection.
