Hostin Asks Why Hasn’t Anybody Taken Trump Out Back and Kicked His Butt, Then Backtracks

Thursday on ABC’s “The View,” the co-hosts debated former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump’s back and forth triggered by Biden saying he would “beat the hell out of” Trump.

Joy Behar said, “I think Biden would beat him. You know this guy can’t even go to the bathroom without a golf cart.”

Sara Haines said, “This is such a dude response. If women ruled the world this would not be what we are singing.”

Sunny Hostin said, “There was something chivalrous about Joe Biden saying if we were in high school I’d take him out back and I’d kick his butt. I thought, you know, there’s something about that. Because he was also speaking at an event where he was encouraging men to stick up for women, not be just bystanders. So I don’t know.”

Behar said, “That’s an old school thing though.”

Hostin said, “I mean, that’s the thing. Trump is such a bully. I almost — and I hate to say this. You know, why hasn’t anybody taken him out back and kicked his little butt?”

Meghan McCain interjected, “We really shouldn’t be advocating for violence. This is a dangerous area. When President Trump was saying this stuff during the rallies, during the election, all you guys had a lot to say about the rhetoric and people getting kicked out, not have a double standard here. I don’t like double standards.”

Hostin continued, “Why doesn’t anybody just stand up to him?”

McCain said, “He’s the president of the United States. You want somebody to take him out back and beat the crap out of him? That’s not reality. Let’s talk about the debt. I can’t with all this”

Hostin insisted, “I’m not advocating beating up the president, but why doesn’t anybody just stand up to him?”

Whoopi Goldberg, “You know, here’s what’s going to happen to your behind. The Secret Service is going to call you.”

Behar said. “She didn’t mean it. Say it. Say ‘I didn’t mean it.'”

Hostin continued, “I mean, I wish somebody would stand up to the president.”

Goldberg said, “We’re trying to help you. Stop! Don’t talk about it.We are moving on.”

Later in the segment, Hostin said “I, in no way, was advocating violence against the president.”
