While conservatives have long denounced the far-left rhetoric of various co-hosts of ABC’s long-running talk show “The View,” one of those personalities recently claimed that Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson took his criticism to a dangerous level.
During a podcast appearance, Sunny Hostin lamented her perceived status as the most aggrieved of all the show’s co-hosts.
“I have sort of surpassed [Joy Behar] as the right-wing target on Fox News,” she claimed.
Hostin went on to vaguely describe a segment of Carlson’s nightly program that she said has caused her to live in fear.
“Tucker Carlson has decided to in some ways disseminate my home address,” she said. “I have security now; I have all of these things. You know, I have gates and cameras and things.”
Although she did not describe the segment in detail, Carlson did air public footage that showed Hostin’s palatial residence in March 2021. He used the clip to expose the perceived absurdity of her claim that she felt “like a hostage” in a society that allows individuals to carry firearms.
Of course, he did not provide Hostin’s address — or even the city where she lived — in the segment. About three years earlier, however, Hostin herself did exactly that.
People magazine showcased her home in a 2018 feature that provided far more identifying information than Carlson’s brief display of the home’s exterior. By her own logic, she colluded with the magazine’s staff to put her own safety at risk.
In reality, Hostin does not seem to need actual reasons to trash Fox News and conservatives in general.
Racist and unstable Sunny Hostin is OBSESSED with Pence tapping his foot for some reason.
"All I kept on looking at was Mike pence's right foot. Did you see how he was just tapping it and tapping it?" she whined. "So he can say whatever he wants with his tapping right foot…" pic.twitter.com/6zm02ALC1B

About two months ago, she took aim at former GOP South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley for allegedly changing her name in an effort to hide her Indian heritage.
“I think that if she leaned into being someone of color, it’s different,” Hostin said. “There are some of us that can be chameleons and decide not to embrace our ethnicities so that we can pass.”
Co-host Sara Haines pointed out that Hostin does not go by her actual name, which is Asuncion. Hostin responded by blaming “under-education in our country” for the supposed fact that “Americans can’t pronounce Asuncion.”
Shortly after the segment aired, Haley reacted during a Fox News Channel interview, asserting: “It’s not the first time, and it won’t be the last time that the hosts of ‘The View’ come after me or that liberals come after me in … whatever way. They can’t stand the fact that a minority female would be a conservative Republican.”
