Race-Obsessed Hostin: Too Many White People in Trump Trial Courtroom, Needs ‘a Little Color’

News & Politics

The staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host of ABC’s The View, Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) was again allowed into the New York courtroom for former President Trump’s hush money trial and reported back to the Cackling Coven her shocking findings. Last week, she was startled by Trump’s “radioactive orange” face. This time, she was rocking brand new “binoculars” with which she deduced that there were too many white people in the courtroom.

According to the race-obsessed co-host, there were too many white people and her job was to “give a little color to the courtroom.” Even moderator Whoopi Goldberg wanted her to walk it back:

HOSTIN: I was! I was in the courtroom again yesterday. Yes, thank you.

[Applause]

Thank you. What I want to do is give a little color to the courtroom, because a lot of people –

GOLDBERG: Oh, redo that.

HOSTIN: No, no, a little color. I mean that literally and figuratively.

It’s worth noting that Hostin took a lot of pride in having been in the courtroom; but when the audience didn’t clap for her, she cued them to do so by declaring “thank you” to a silent room.

Even though every major news outlet had multiple reporters in the courtroom reporting on every twitch, gesture, and eye movement from the former President, Hostin clownishly and narcissistically claimed “no one” had reported what was physically happening in the courtroom except for her.

“I now have access to binoculars,” she bragged (pictured above). Hostin bloviated how: “While other reporters are zooming in on the documents, I’m zooming in on [Trump]!” She even defended her clownish analysis when pressed by co-host Sara Haines:

HAINES: Is this your serious legal analysis?!

HOSTIN: Yes, it really is! It really is! Because people have been reporting that he is asleep. He is not asleep. He is enraged. And that’s why I think he’s so orange because it think it’s red underneath.

To justify her use of binoculars to watch a television screen watching Trump, she started mimicking some of the facial and body movements he was exhibiting while listening to the testimony of his former fixer Michael Cohen.

Even though Cohen had been convicted for lying under oath and served time for it, Hostin insisted the jury found him to be a credible witness. The reason why? He spoke with a New York accent:

And I will tell you there were reporters falling asleep in the courtroom, not the jury. Not the lawyer with the legal pad. He is feverishly taking notes. I think Michael Cohen came off credibly. He was charming. [Puts on a New York accent] He’s a New Yorker. This is a New York jury. He speaks like a New Yorker.

Hostin also walked back her falsehood from last week when she erroneously suggested that there were “several” legal professionals on the jury, admitting there were only two. She didn’t correct her lie about there being more women than men.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Sunny was sitting there. So, what did you hear?

SUNNY HOSTIN: I was! I was in the courtroom again yesterday. Yes, thank you.

[Applause]

Thank you. What I want to do is give a little color to the courtroom, because a lot of people –

GOLDBERG: Oh, redo that.

HOSTIN: No, no, a little color. I mean that literally and figuratively.

Because a lot of people are reporting what was said in the courtroom, right? But no one has really reported about what you see when you’re actually there. And I said the other day that he appeared orange, very — in an unnatural way. I’ve never seen anyone that orange before. I now have access to binoculars in the courtroom. And so, I’m using the binoculars.

JOY BEHAR: Why? Is it such a big courtroom?

HOSTIN: Yes, it is a huge courtroom and they have a camera directly on Donald Trump because we are behind him, so we can’t see his face, but we can see his face on the screen. So, while other reporters are zooming in on the documents, I’m zooming in on him.

SARA HAINES: Is this your serious legal analysis?

HOSTIN: Yes, it really is! It really is! Because people have been reporting that he is asleep. He is not asleep. He is enraged. And that’s why I think he’s so orange because it think it’s red underneath. I saw him during Michael Cohen’s testimony sort of going like this – [makes faces] – and I said, “oh, here he’s sleeping” and he went – [makes faces and convulses]

[Laughter]

That is what’s happening.

BEHAR: You know, my dog does that when he’s sleeping.

HOSTIN: When he’s sleeping?

BEHAR: Yeah.

HOSITN: He’s not sleeping. So, that’s one of my first observations.

The other observation is: I learned more about the jurors from some of my now-friends in the courtroom.

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: She’s going to be vacationing with these people.

HOSTIN: I basically am.

There are two lawyers on the jury. Two male lawyers, one is a civil litigator, the other one is a retired wealth manager. The foreperson is in sales. There’s an investment banker, and a corporate attorney. What is so interesting about this jury is that – this is a documents case, let’s all remember, it is not about an affair necessarily, it’s about documents and payment to a porn star and the hiding of those business records. These guys understand documents.

And I will tell you there were reporters falling asleep in the courtroom, not the jury. Not the lawyer with the legal pad. He is feverishly taking notes. I think Michael Cohen came off credibly. He was charming. [Puts on a New York accent] He’s a New Yorker. This is a New York jury. He speaks like a New Yorker.

BEHAR: Yeah.

HOSTIN: And they were giggling at him a little bit. He also talked about his love for his daughter – and, Sara, you’ll get into this. He has a text message – they showed a text message change with his daughter who’s at the University of Pennsylvania and she sort of – ‘you’re going through this with Donald Trump?’ and he says “Don’t worry, I’ll take care of it. I love you” and she says “I love you” and he says, “I love you more.” What parent can’t identify with that? So, they humanized him. He was very credible.
