The View’s Sunny Hostin was completely appalled by the confrontation that took place between MAGA-hatted white teenagers from an exclusive all-boys private Catholic school and a Native American veteran, and dropped an epic rant on Tuesday condemning just about everyone involved.
“As a practicing Catholic, I just kept on coming back to the same point,” Hostin said. “Where were the chaperones? Where were the adults? I thought it was such a teachable moment for everyone there.”
Hostin said that the adults had let the teenagers down by letting things escalate.
“You’ve got the Black Israelites really taunting them, They should have been taught, ‘what would Jesus do?’ That’s what Catholics are taught,” she continued, as she described the chaos that ensued. “A chaperone should have said, ‘don’t engage, don’t engage, move along’. Instead, the chaperones told them to start this chant.”
Hostin slammed the school for bringing the students to a political event, suggesting it was a violation of federal tax laws, and lit into the student himself, Nick Sandmann, saying his claim that he was “silently praying” didn’t pass muster. She also blasted his family for hiring a PR firm to defend their son rather than “teaching him as an adult, ‘maybe take some responsibility.'”
“No one is there,” Hostin said sadly. “I was disgusted by the entire thing.”

Republican analyst says Trump is ‘threatened by’ being challenged by women: ‘It hurts his ego’
According to one Republican commentator, President Donald Trump's decision to lash out at four Congresswomen of color stems from his inability to handle being challenged by women.
In a segment with MSNBC host Ali Velshi, Rina Shah, who runs Republican Women for Progress, said that she's been the target of racist attacks from Trump supporters ever since she announced she wouldn't support him.
"I believe that what this president is doing is fanning the flames," she said. "He cannot denounce white supremacy, white nationalism. This is a moment in which he could have kept his mouth shut. You know, this tit-for-tat with [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi (D-CA) and 'The Squad,' he didn’t need to engage in it. If I was advising the president, if I were one of his advisers, I would have said stay out of it. But he doesn't listen to anyone around him."
Mitt Romney blames democratic women for Trump’s racism: Their views ‘are not consistent with my experience’
Little more than six months ago Senator-elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) promised voters he would "speak out" against President Donald Trump's racism. On Monday, Senator Mitt Romney blamed the targets of President Donald Trump's two-day racism fest for the President's own racism.
"I will speak out against significant statements or actions," by President Trump, "that are divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions," Romney said in a New Year's Day 2019 Washington Post op-ed.
Facebook needs ‘very high standard’ for Libra coin: Mnuchin
Facebook will need to meet "a very high standard" before it moves ahead with its planned digital currency Libra, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Monday.
Mnuchin said US regulators have already expressed concerns to Facebook about the plan for a global cryptocurrency, noting that these kinds of virtual coins have in the past been associated with money laundering and illicit activities.
"Whether they're banks or non-banks, they're under the same regulatory environment," Mnuchin told reporters at the White House, adding that Facebook "will have to have a very high standard before they have access to the financial system."
