Sunny Hostin blames Trump for Chappelle’s attack on The View

According to the women of The View, Donald Trump’s presidency unleashed a shockwave of violence.

Following the shocking attack from Comedian Dave Chappelle on TuesdayHost Sunny Hostin blamed Trump for triggering a spate of brazen attacks, claiming he “unleashed some rudeness” across the country.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg prompted Hostin’s allegation during Wednesday’s episode, asking The View panel, “What do you think is happening? I mean, it happens on planes, it happens on street corners.”

In response to Goldberg, Joy Behar first went on to offer a litany of compounding factors: “The pandemic, the opioid crisis, the fact that Trump was out there saying things like, ‘Just flip ’em. I promise I’ll pay for his attorney’s fees when he barked.”

She was likely referring to a 2016 Trump rally in Iowa, where the candidate urged voters to get on the defensive — and on the offensive.

“So if you see someone willing to throw a tomato, slap the shit on them… I promise I’ll pay the legal fees. I promise,” Trump said at the time.

Behar added that at the moment Will Smith beat Oscar presenter Chris Rock on stage “was the showpiece, if you will.”

However, Lindsey Granger – a guest co-host on the ABC talk show – dismissed Behar, insisting: “This is not a political thing. Come on.”

“I know you want to put everything in politics – this is really about safety,” Granger added. She went on to say that there was nothing “particularly right-wing” about Smith’s slap during the March 27 ceremony.

“It hasn’t happened before,” Behar shrugged.

“I think Trump unleashed a certain rudeness, at least in our country,” Hostin said.

Granger returned to Chappelle and claimed that nobody knew anything about the attacker’s motives.

Behar concluded the exchange by noting that “there is a lack of impulse control in the population today.”

Chappelle was not seriously injured — also not particularly shaken, apparently – after a man mugged the 48-year-old entertainer during his performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The police reported that the Suspect in custodyIsaiah Lee, 23, carried a replica handgun which at that time had a blade inside.

It’s still unclear what inspired the attack, the LAPD said, but they found the attacker, a rapper, had recorded songs in praise of “my president” Trump.
