Mollie Hemingway delivered an epic takedown of “The View” co-host, Sunny Hostin, on Friday concerning comments she had made about about President Trump and his supporters.
Hemingway said that the mainstream media never acknowledged Trump’s voters support of “conservative populism” after Hostin called Trump supporters “selfish.”
“What has happened for the last five years was that we had major media basically lie about Donald Trump and his supporters,” the conservative pundit said on “Fox & Friends.”
“And at this point it is undeniable ‒ and it has been for many years ‒ that these are intentional lies told about Donald Trump and his supporters, and a refusal to even try to come to terms with why so many people would support the most successful Republican president since Ronald Reagan,” Hemingway said.
Hemingway argued that Trump’s success is “based a little bit in his personality, while more so being based on his “policies.” While minorities unexpectedly embraced Trump’s “conservative populism,” as indicated by the presidential election, major media outlets “refused” to bring that narrative into the spotlight.
“These voters include unprecedented numbers and percentages from groups that are historically quite hostile to Republicans,” Hemingway stated.
“Groups like Black people, Hispanic people, Native Americans, the reason why people voted for him is that they like these policies, they like conservative populism, they like reorienting our foreign policy,” she continued.
Here’s the full comment from Hostin:
“For the past four years, this president has shown us that he is a misogynist, that he is homophobic, that he is racist and that he mismanaged a coronavirus pandemic to the tune of 250,000 American deaths. Yet 50% of America saw all of that and looked the other way to their brothers and their sisters and said, ‘I’m going to vote for him anyway.’”

“This is something that people like Sunny Hostin, but, really pretty much almost everybody throughout major media have refused to even begin to think about, instead deciding to lie about the successes of this Republican president, to hide all of the problems with other candidates, to rig polls for months leading up to elections so that it sets a narrative that nobody could possibly like Donald Trump in Wisconsin,” Hemingway responded.
“It’s really disappointing to see people like Sunny Hostin continuing in these false claims, even at this point when more than 69 million Americans have shown their support for President Trump after witnessing his four years as president,” she concluded.
The mainstream media still hasn’t learned anything from what happened in 2016. It’s amazing.
