The co-hosts of ABC’s “The View” flipped out on Monday over the drama that unfolded last week with Republicans nominating Rep. Kevin McCarthy to become the speaker of the House.
During a segment on “The View,” co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Sara Haines claimed that Republicans held the entire country “hostage” and acted like “thugs” on the House floor.
“The Republicans like to use identity politics and they like to talk about thugs a lot, and they like to talk about other people. I saw a lot of thuggishness going on. I saw thugs at work. I saw this uncivilized nature, and it’s like they were raised by wolves many of them, and so I wonder, if you are doing that in the chamber on the House floor, how do you expect to govern and lead by example? That’s something I wouldn’t want to see my kids do, and they were doing it,” Hostin said.
Haines said the 20 Republicans that had refused to vote for McCarthy held the entire country “hostage” by holding up the vote.
