“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin is under fire for likening white women who vote Republican to “roaches voting for Raid.”
Hostin, 54, made the controversial comment on Thursday’s episode of the ABC daytime show as she and her co-hosts discussed next week’s midterm elections.
Hostin expressed surprise that women are planning to cast their ballots for lawmakers who celebrated the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade.
“I read a poll just yesterday that white, Republican, suburban women are now going to vote Republican. It’s almost like roaches voting for Raid, right?” Hostin remarked.
Her comparison was rejected by Republican co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, who angrily snapped, “That’s insulting to the voter!”
