GOP Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) has fired back at “The View” hosts after they made racially charged attacks against him.
Co-hosts Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, and Sunny Hostin all attacked Scott in response to the recent launch of his 2024 presidential campaign.
Behar said: “Tim Scott’s one of these guys who, you know, he’s like Clarence Thomas, black Republican who believes in pulling yourself up by your bootstraps rather than, to me, understanding the systemic racism that African Americans face in this country and other minorities.
“He doesn’t get it, neither does Clarence.
“And that’s why they’re Republicans.”

Scott said: “Meekness is not weakness.
“I believe in the Gospel. I believe Matthew 5:44 says ‘Love your enemies’ — but if you break in my house, I also believe in the Second Amendment.
“We have to ignore the far Left by disproving their lies by our actions.
“Here’s the funny thing: The host, Sunny, she wants to be judged by the content of her character, not the color of her skin.
“The fact of the matter is America is a story of evolution – a never told story of evolution in too many of our schools that are indoctrinating our kids instead of educating our kids.
“Every parent who wants a choice.
“Look to the Republican Party.
“Look to the GOP, but more importantly, look at Americans, African-Americans, Hispanic Americans – the majority of Americans all agree on school choice.
“I say, not on my watch.
“Let’s tell the whole story of America rising.
“My life disproves the lies of the radical Left,” he said.
