Multi-Millionaire Co-Host of ‘The View’ Demands ‘Reparations’ from US/UK

Sunny Hostin is a co-host of The View on ABC News, a former federal prosecutor, a multi-millionaire who brags about taking family vacations to Martha’s Vineyard and Sag Harbor, and her husband is a renowned orthopedic surgeon in New York City. But on Friday’s edition of The View, she demanded that she get reparations from the United States and for the United Kingdom to pay their colonies following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

During their conversation about the passing of the Queen, Hostin lamented that she “got caught up in the pomp and circumstance of it all” when she studied abroad (she recently whined about having to repay the student loans she took out for it).

“I wanted to see the changing of the guards. I wanted to see everything. I wanted to meet the Queen because I think we all love glam and pageantry. And I think though we can mourn the queen and not the empire,” she said. Adding that “the monarchy was built on, it was built on the backs of black and brown people” the Queen “wore a crown with pillaged stones from India and Africa.”

She then demanded that King Charles III “modernize this monarchy” and “provide reparations to all of those colonies.” “And I also think, you know, a monarchy, it’s very easy to uplift one family. The harder thing is to uplift all families and I think that he’s in a position to be able to do that,” she said.

Shortly thereafter, faux conservative co-host Ana Navarro declared that “the United States was built on the backs of black and brown people” too. This prompted Hostin to chime in again to demand: “And we want our reparations!” Of course, the radical liberal crowd applauded.

Building off of Hostin, co-host Joy Behar noted Native Americans also needed reparations. Navarro also argued that The Catholic Church needed to pay up too since it “was built on the backs of … black and brown people who were forced to convert to Catholicism.”

Navarro herself rakes in dough from not only this new full-time gig on The View (she was a longtime guest host) but also checks from being a commentator for CNN and Telemundo. She’s also married to Al Cardenas, a wealthy lawyer and political activist.

In another moment of vapid commentary regarding the passing of the Queen, Navarro interrupted reporting from ABC foreign correspondent James Longman about what the people of the U.K. were experiencing to demand he tell her about the Queen’s dogs:

LONGMAN: People here, they’ll like the idea of seeing a team in charge and more parental figures—

NAVARRO [interrupting]: Okay James, I’ve got to ask you one question before we run out of time. The dogs, the corgis, did she still have corgis? What’s happening with the corgis?! My dog wants to know! We all want to know!

Longman took it in stride with a chuckle. “If they were here, I could show them to you. I would be grateful. The corgis are part of the family and I’m sure they’re up in Balmoral with the rest of the family right now,” he reassured her.

The ridiculous calls for reparations were made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Prevagen and Angi. Their contact information is linked.

JAMES LONGMAN: People here, they’ll like the idea of seeing a team in charge, and more parental figures—

ANA NAVARRO [interrupting]: Okay James, I’ve got to ask you one question before we run out of time. The dogs, the corgis, did she still have corgis? What’s happening with the corgis? My dog wants to know. We all want to know.

LONGMAN: [Laughter] Ana, I’ve got to tell you, Ana, I have absolutely no idea. If they were here, I could show them to you. I would be grateful. The corgis are part of the family and I’m sure they’re up in Balmoral with the rest of the family right now.

NAVARRO: I need you to find out.

LONGMAN: Okay.

SUNNY HOSTIN: I studied in London, and so I lived in London for a while. And I got caught up in the pomp and circumstance of it all as well. I wanted to see the changing of the guards. I wanted to see everything. I wanted to meet the Queen because I think we all love glam and pageantry. And I think though we can mourn the queen and not the empire.

SARA HAINES: Yeah.

BEHAR: Sure.

HOSTIN:  Because if you really think about what the monarchy was built on, it was built on the backs of black and brown people. She wore a crown with pillaged stones from India and Africa.

And now what you’re seeing, at least in the black communities that I’m a part of, they want reparations, you know, Barbados left – left the sort of this –

BEHAR: Commonwealth.

HOSTIN: This monarchy, this colonization. Jamaica. I have a lot of Jamaican friends. That’s coming soon. And right now – Charles now is in a position – he’s, I think has 14 “colonies” that he’s now head of state including Australia and Canada. I believe if I’m correct.

BEHAR: Yeah.

HOSTIN: It’s time for him to modernize this monarchy and for him to provide reparations to all of to those colonies. And I also think, you know, a monarchy, it’s very easy to uplift one family. The harder thing is to uplift all families and I think that he’s in a position to be able to do that.

[Applause]
