Conservative author and commentator Mollie Hemingway blasted “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin for insulting supporters of President Donald Trump.
The Federalist senior editor called out the “false claims” and “intentional lies” about the president and his supporters that have been perpetrated by the left-wing media and those like Hostin for four years, slamming the talk show host for calling Trump voters “selfish.”
“What has happened for the last five years was that we had major media basically lie about Donald Trump and his supporters,” Hemingway said on “Fox & Friends” Friday.
“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,” she added.

Hemingway was reacting to Hostin’s wild insult of 68 million Americans who voted for Trump. The liberal co-host of “The View” shamefully name-called the president and dismissed a great segment of the country based on her personal, narrow-minded view.
“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,” Hostin said.
“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,” she added, saying it was “really disheartening” and “selfish” to vote for Trump.
Trump’s success is “based a little bit in his personality,” and “a lot on his “policies,” Hemingway noted on Fox News.
“These voters include unprecedented numbers and percentages from groups that are historically quite hostile to Republicans,” Hemingway said. “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.”
“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,” she said.
Hemingway called out the rhetoric as “intentional manipulations of the narrative” and are not based in reality
“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 added.
Hemingway noted that Hostin’s characterization of Trump voters being “selfish” further “misunderstands a lot of what that special relationship is” between Trump and his supporters.
“In President Trump, people saw – for many people the first time – what it is like to have a politician care about you,” she added. “It has been a long time since Americans felt that their politician really cared about them and their economic well-being.”
