Sunny Hostin of The View recently used her platform to claim she was “oppressed” and demanded reparations from the U.S. government. Then, during a Wednesday segment, she bragged that she hadn’t been in a supermarket in three years because of COVID and that she uses an expensive grocery delivery service.
It’s hard to sympathize with the multimillionaire co-host’s first-world problem when average Americans are struggling paycheck to paycheck.
Hostin’s Instacart boasts and Joy Behar’s Costco shopping habits are far from relatable in a time of inflation when people are struggling to make ends meet.
Their careless banter went something like this:
HOSTIN: I don’t like a supermarket. I haven’t been in a supermarket since COVID – for about three years. That’s when I discovered Instacart. And I give them a big tip because they don’t always pay their people well. And it’s – So, that’s been an issue I think for the company. But man, you can get toiletries, you can get fire logs, you know, those big Bounty towels you don’t want to carry.
BEHAR: Yeah. I order those from Costco.
HOSTIN: Somebody else goes!
FARAH GRIFFIN: Never fans. Only [trails off in laughter]
HOSTIN: And they actually talk to you?
BEHAR: Yes, and I talk to them. I say why exactly do you like him? I’m interested to know why they like him. And then they give me Fox News and then I walk away and go shopping. [LAUGHTER] But I like to engage people who disagree with me.
It’s difficult not to feel a sense of outrage when The View cast members talk about their fancy shopping habits while the average person is struggling to make ends meet. Hostin’s boastful remarks about Instacart and Behar’s Costco trips are far from relatable, especially when the financial hardships of the pandemic have left Americans struggling to make ends meet.
The View cast members’ privilege is on full display when they talk about their expensive shopping habits. Hostin’s Instacart boasts and Behar’s Costco trips are far from relatable for the average person struggling to make ends meet. The lack of empathy and understanding for those in dire financial straits is a reminder of the disconnect between those who have the money and resources to purchase expensive goods and services and those who are struggling to make ends meet.
It’s hard to sympathize with the “oppressed” cast of The View when they enjoy the privileges of wealth and privilege that the average person doesn’t have access to. It’s a reminder of how far removed the cast of The View are from the financial struggles most Americans are facing in this pandemic. It’s a stark reminder of the wealth gap between the privileged few and the rest of us.

How can this hateful, racist show still be running?!
Funds from the DemoCommies, RINOS and the billionaire interloper and insurrectionists, maybe?
