Some members of the media really can’t stand hearing criticism of the previous administration. Sunny Hostin, co-host of The View, displayed that today on Wednesday’s show, going into an unbelievably petty rant against President Trump after he argued the Obama Administration hampered their response to the coronavirus by leaving them a shortage of medical supplies and testing kits.
Hostin was reacting to President Trump’s words to ABC anchor David Muir during an interview in a mask production factory yesterday, where he said the following:
The cupboard was bare. The other administration -- the last administration left us nothing. We didn't have ventilators. We didn't have medical equipment. We didn't have testing. The tests were broken. You saw that. We had broken tests. They left us nothing, and we've taken it and we have built an incredible stockpile.
Hostin was irate at Trump’s words, and went into a weird rant about how much smarter, more successful and better looking Obama was:
“Well, it's not a surprise that he tried to blame President Obama, and President Obama's administration because he has this obsession with President Obama,” Hostin sneered.
“I mean, he'll never be as smart as President Obama or as elegant or eloquent, you know, or as successful. He'll never look as good in a tan suit. So he of course, tried to do that," she ranted.
Hostin’s words echo CNN host Don Lemon’s, who went into a similarly bizarre rant a few days ago about how much smarter and better looking the Obamas were than the Trumps.
Hostin went on to deny that it was the Obama administration’s fault there was faulty CDC testing kits for coronavirus: "The tests that initially came out for the coronavirus came out under the Trump administration, and those tests were mandated to be made by the CDC by the Trump administration," she ranted. The View host conveniently ignored Trump’s claims about the shortage of ventilators or medical grade face masks.
Whoopi Goldberg also took offense at the president's comments about the previous administration, whining that Trump actually couldn't take credit for the previously booming economy:
Right. I also want to point out that the cupboards were far from empty. You came into a pretty damn good economy, sir. I'm sorry. You may not like how it happened, but it was in good stead when you entered in, and you kind of got rid of a lot of jobs for people who could actually have helped us prepare for all of this. So some of this, yeah, is on your shoulders.
