Aside from so-called “Sunny Hostin” making racist attacks against former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley targeting her name and skin tone, The View also floated names of Democrats to be their nominee in 2024 on Tuesday. One potential ticket paring that got some vocal support from the cast was California Governor Gavin Newsom and Georgia’s Pretend-Governor Stacey Abrams. And the former in particular got high praise from the racist Hostin.

Near the top of the show, Joy Behar fantasized about former President Trump being in prison for unnamed “crimes” or having fled to Russia as the reasons he would not be able to run again:

BEHAR: Unless – to me – unless Trump is in prison –

[Laughter and applause]

It could happen. If Trump is in prison or is somewhere in some maybe, in Saudi Arabia, somewhere --

HOSTIN: Russia.

BEHAR: Russia. It's possible. Then I think that, Joe Biden is the one to beat him. He beat him before. He'll beat him again.

Having settled on a future featuring Trump in an orange jumpsuit, her next choice was the pair of Governors. “I think Gavin Newsome has a chance. Gavin Newsom and Stacey Abrams. What a ticket that would be,” she rhetorically asked the audience.
