The View’s co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin pushed back against co-host Sunny Hostin on Monday after the latter claimed that Vice President Kamala Harris has gotten everything done because she’s a black woman.

The panel were discussing President Joe Biden and Harris running again in 2024, with co-host Ana Navarro saying that Fox News “goes after Kamala Harris trying to portray her as inept and a bumbling fool. She’s not.”

Navarro then claimed that people don’t want to see Harris succeed because they “can’t stand she’s the first woman, first woman of color, vice president.”


Griffin then pushed back and said there is “some concern about just the lack of a policy accomplishment that she’s made as vice president.”

“I’m surprised there’s concern,” Hostin said. “I think it has a lot to do with she’s a black woman. Black women get everything done. We’ve saved this country’s democracy for centuries.” (RELATED: ‘What The Hell Is Wrong With Democrats?’ Ana Navarro Asks Fellow ‘View’ Panel Members)

“She’s obviously amazing,” Griffin said, “but what specifically?”

“Well, where shall I start? I mean, she was in the Senate,” Hostin said.

“But I mean as Vice President,” Griffin shot back.

“She’s vice president, the Inflation Reduction Act, she’s-” Hostin said before co-host Whoopi Goldberg cut in and asked what former Vice President Mike Pence did.

The Daily Caller News Foundation has repeatedly asked the White House to provide them with a list of Harris’ accomplishments was vice president but have been denied several times.

Democratic Party donor John Morgan recently told The New York Times he “can’t think of one thing she’s done except stay out of the way and stand beside him at certain ceremonies.” Other operatives told the outlet Harris is not poised to lead the country and lacks legislative accomplishments.
