‘The View’ Guest: The U.S Constitution Is ‘Trash’

During Friday’s broadcast of “The View,” Elie Mystal slammed the United States Constitution as “trash.”

Appearing on the show Friday, MSNBC analyst Mystal ranted about the Constitution with remarks that even left the far co-hosts stunned.

Joy Behar was left speechless by the comments and almost fell out of her chair, again, in front of millions.

Mystal was promoting his new book, Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution, on the hit ABC show where he made the provocative statements.

“I loved this book so very much,” co-host Sunny Hostin gushed.

“The first chapter, ‘Canceling Trash People is Not a Constitutional Crisis.’

“Chapter Nine, ‘The Taking of Black Land’ was another favorite of mine, and ‘Reverse Racism is Not a Thing.’

“I just think it’s fantastic.”

Co-host Ana Navarro asked Mystal, “Some will say, are you arguing for throwing out the Constitution?

“Should the Constitution be thrown out? What do we do? Is it a living document or a sacred document?”

Mystal fired back: “It’s certainly not sacred.

“Again, let’s just talk as adults for a second.”

Behar said incredulously, “What?”

Mystal doubled down saying the Constitution is “kind of trash” before explaining why he believes this.

He said:

“It was written by slavers and colonists and White people willing to make deals with slavers and colonists.

“They didn’t ask anybody who looked like me what they thought about the Constitution.

“It was written without the consent of Black and Brown people in this country.

“And without the consent of women in this country.”

Behar then asked Mystal if he wants “to rewrite” the Constitution.

“I could, right?” said Mystal.

“I could rewrite parts of it in a tweet.”
