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.”

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed
George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.
"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."

Bill Barr denies giving the order to gas protesters for Trump photo-op
America's top law enforcement office on Friday denied giving the highly-controversial order to gas protesters prior to a photo-op with President Donald Trump holding a Bible.
"Attorney General William Barr says law enforcement officers were already moving to push back protesters from a park in front of the White House when he arrived there Monday evening, and he says he did not give a command to disperse the crowd, though he supported the decision," The Associated Press reports.
"Barr’s comments in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday were his most detailed explanation yet of what unfolded outside the White House earlier this week. They come after the White House and others said repeatedly that the attorney general ordered officers to clear the park," the AP reported. "Shortly after officers aggressively pushed back demonstrators, President Donald Trump — accompanied by Barr, Pentagon leaders and other top advisers — walked through Lafayette Park to pose for a photo at a nearby church that had been damaged during the protests."
