Sunny Hostin had a message for Gov. Ron DeSantis on this morning’s episode of The View. The co-host didn’t hold back on her disdain for the Florida conservative and his act of “political theater” after he sent a group of migrants from his state to Martha’s Vineyard last week.
During a conversation about the investigation into DeSantis opened by a Texas sheriff, Hostin unloaded on the governor, tearing into his act of “divisiveness” after DeSantis accused Martha’s Vineyard residents of choosing not to “absorb” the migrants into their community.
Some of the migrants have since filed a lawsuit against DeSantis, alleging they were “fraudulently induced to travel across state lines by DeSantis and the State of Florida.” According to NPR, the migrants said they were not told where they were going when they were flown from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard last week.
Hostin blasted DeSantis on today’s View episode, proclaiming, “This is political theater. If there are sanctuary cities that are able to absorb immigrants, then you make the plan. Then you can call governor-to-governor, because the governor of Massachusetts [Charlie Baker] is a republican.
“So DeSantis could have easily called his governor party friend and basically just said, ‘Can you absorb it? What is this plan? Can we all work together?’” she continued. “I hear republicans all the time talking about the divisiveness of the left and the divisiveness of the democrats. Well, this was just a prime example of divisiveness.”
She later gave a direct message to DeSantis himself, practically spitting out angry words to the Florida politician.
“We need to talk about whether or not what DeSantis did was legal,” Hostin began. “I looked at the Spanish consent form and the English consent form. They were very different, and the English consent form informed them that they were going ‘voluntarily’ to Massachusetts.
“The Spanish form didn’t outline a location. And that could be interpreted as a true lack of consent … He went to law school,” Hostin said, before turning to look right at the camera and rip DeSantis with one line: “You should be ashamed of yourself.”
The View airs weekdays at 11/10c on ABC. Watch Hostin’s comments in full in the video above.
