Sunny Hostin, a co-host of ABC’s daytime political talk show “The View,” is arguing it is nonsensical for suburban women to vote GOP in next week’s midterm elections.
“I read a poll just yesterday” showing that “suburban women are now going to vote Republican,” Hostin said during Thursday’s episode. “It’s almost like roaches voting for Raid,” she added, in reference to the popular pest repellent.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former Trump White House communications director and the lone conservative on the panel-style show, interjected, saying the comment was “insulting to the voter.”
“They’re voting against their own self interest,” Hostin countered.
“People make up decisions on what’s right for their family,” Griffin shot back, calling it wrong that Hostin felt she could make that determination for others.
Hostin refused to back down, saying she was “surprised” to see polling indicating that “women would vote against their own health care.”
Reproductive health and abortion rights have been one of the biggest issues Democrats are pushing ahead of next week’s elections, in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade in June.
