Tim Scott Slams ‘The View’ For Targeting His Race

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) reportedly persisted in criticizing analysts of his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Scott addressed the podium on Friday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference to reiterate his prior responses to criticisms of him for being a black Republican senator.

The senator from South Carolina blended his remarks on Joy Behar of The View and former president Barack Obama into a single speech.

“Joy Behar told me I don’t know what it’s like to be black. [I’d] like to go on that show and have a conversation with them on The View because I got to say, their comments were offensive and dangerous and disgusting. To suggest that the only way for a child of color to make it in this nation is to be the exception and not the rule is a lie from the pit of hell.” Scott said.

“Then, President Obama decided to jump in as well. I have been accused of being too optimistic. Too positive. Too proud to be an American. For those accounts, I am guilty! Guilty as charged. I love America. I love our country.” he continued.

The first Republican contender to appear on the chat program was Scott, who criticized the remarks while he was there. On that particular day, Behar wasn’t in the studio.
