Journalist, writer, and producer Lindsey Granger has been a guest cohost on “The View” this week. And based on her job titles alone, you might think she’d fit right in over there.
But you’d be wrong. Because while she’s an accomplished young woman, she is also — gasp! — a Republican.
And that’s more than a tolerant progressive like Sunny Hostin can handle:
Racism on The View: Sunny Hostin claims a "black Republican" is "an oxymoron."
"I don't understand either of you," she huffed at guest co-host Lindsey Granger. "I don't under black Republicans and I don't understand Latino Republicans." pic.twitter.com/JJa6N9ff3m

The View’s Sunny Hostin: A "black Republican is an oxymoron… I don't understand black Republicans and I don't understand Latino Republicans."

Quick note, if we may: If Sunny Hostin wants to understand Latino Republicans, she shouldn’t be talking to a liberal Democrat like Ana Navarro.
But back to Hostin vs. Granger. Holy racism, Batman.
“Why are blacks and Hispanics shifting to the GOP?”
TOTAL. MYSTERY. https://t.co/7xVpKLVD0p

Black Republicans do exist, and they’re not an oxymoron. Latino Republicans exist, too, for that matter, and they’re not oxymorons. Asian Republicans and Native American Republicans and LGBTQ+ Republicans exist and none of them are oxymorons.
Sunny Hostin, however … well, she’s just a moron. A big one.

“The View” is indeed racist.
Credit to Granger who stood her ground in the face of the race-betrayal trope, as opposed to Navarro who meekly deflected with a seal-clap line https://t.co/FiKiwH0C2m

Yeah, Ana Navarro only further cemented her insufferableness here. She could learn a lot from someone like Lindsey Granger, who, unlike her, isn’t content to just sit there and give bigotry a pass.

Sunny Hostin: "Are you a Republican?"
Lindsey Granger: "Yes"
Sunny: "I feel like that’s an oxymoron, a black Republican."
Granger: "Why? You’re catholic, but aren't pro-life." pic.twitter.com/aQsbP2M1hk

Good for Granger for coming ready to play hardball. Hostin (and Navarro) didn’t have a prayer.
