Republican Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has fired back at the hosts of “The View” over their “divisive behavior.”
The senator was responding to the hosts of the ABC show constantly using race to divide people, warning their actions are “not what America is all about.”
The show’s co-host Sunny Hostin caused outrage earlier this week by saying on the show: A “black Republican is an oxymoron.
“I don’t understand black Republicans and I don’t understand Latino Republicans.”
Tim Scott said: “Over the course of my time in politics, the far left has called me a ‘prop,’ a ‘token,’ the N-word, ‘Uncle Tim,’ and worse all because I am a Black Republican.
“This type of divisive behavior is not what America is all about — and it will not stop me from speaking the truth.”

As Slay News previously reported, Joy Behar also said that she supports protesters bullying Supreme Court justices by gathering outside their private homes.
Behar praised the protesters for teaching Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito a “good lesson” about “freedom of choice” by preventing him from leaving his home.
Guest host Alyssa Farah said she believed the protests outside the houses of justices could be seen as “intimidation” and said taking the protests to the steps of the Supreme Court would be the smarter move.
“I worry it could begin to look like intimidation when it’s at someone’s doorstep,” Farah said.
Co-host Whoopi Golberg was not impressed and fired back saying it was “so funny” because “what Alito wrote looks the same way to me, looks like intimidation.”
“Yeah, it’s kind of the same thing,” Goldberg said of the angry mob that has protested outside Brett Kavanaugh Alito, and John Robert’s homes.
Enter Joy Behar to give up the game.
“It also shows Alito what it feels like to lose your freedom of choice, he can not leave the house easily,” she said.
“Maybe that’s a good lesson for them.”

According to Fox News:
Protesters marched to the homes of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts on Saturday for a “Candlelight vigil for Roe v. Wade.”
They could be heard chanting “keep abortion safe and legal.”
A group called ShutDown DC protested outside Alito’s house on Monday.
