Tim Scott fires back at ‘The View’ over relationship status ‘concern’

Sunny Hostin and the hosts of ABC’s “The View” on Thursday, after what he considered a racially charged attack on his relationship status.Hostin said that there should be concern over a figure like Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, coming into a ‘President Scott’s’ life and potentially influencing him.Virginia Thomas has been criticized on the left for her conservative activism while her husband sits on the bench and hears cases that may have connections to subjects pertaining to such activism.On “Hannity,” host Sean Hannity pointed out the racial element of Hostin’s remarks, noting Justice Thomas — a Black man from Savannah — married a White woman from the Great Plains.“The Democratic Party and the progressive left, they are stuck in Jim Crow, 1920s and 30s,” said Scott, who himself hails from North Charleston, S.C.Scott is the first Black senator elected in the South since Reconstruction, and the third overall. Shortly after the Civil War, Mississippi elected two Black Republicans — Blanche Bruce and Hiram Revels — to the U.S.
