the view Co-host Sunny Houston plunged into hot water for the second time this week when she suggested Latin Republicans “vote against their own self-interest.”

The show’s hosts were discussing recent comments made by Jared Kushner, Trump’s former top White House adviser, who said President Biden’s effort to overturn former President Trump’s border policies created “disaster” on the southern border and that seeing immigrants “use political pawns.” Somehow very upsetting to me.”

“The thing that’s really interesting to me is that there are a lot of Latinos who vote Republican because they vote against their own self-interest. If you’re really interested in these kinds of issues, you’re a Democrat,” Hostin said.

Hostin’s comments on Friday aren’t the first time she’s suggested people of color should be Democrats.

“I don’t understand any of you,” Houston told Republican hosts Lindsey Granger and Anna Navarro last May. “I don’t understand black Republicans and I don’t understand Latin Republicans.”

She has also previously been criticized for claiming that “black Republicans” are “an oxymoron” and accusing CNN commentator Van Jones of being a “chameleon” and giving a “racist cover” to former President Donald Trump.

Earlier this week, she was widely criticized for suggesting that former ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley use “Nikki” as her first name to hide her Indian heritage.

“There are some of us who can be chameleons and decide not to embrace our races so we can pass, so we don’t have to pass…,” Houston said on Tuesday’s show.

Then co-host Sarah Haines interrupted her, saying, “Sunny! You go by a different name!”

Hostin, who was born Asunción Cummings and is best known by the nickname “Sunny,” replied, “This is because most Americans cannot pronounce Asunción due to the lack of education in our culture.”

Hailey responded to a segment of the interaction in a tweet on Tuesday, saying, “It’s racist of you to judge my name. Nikki is an Indian name and it’s on my birth certificate – and I’m proud of it. Sad is the hypocrisy of the Left towards conservative minorities. By the way, the last time I checked Sunny isn’t Your birth name…”

Haley, who was born Nimarata Nikki Randhawa, has been called “Nikki” since she was born. Her parents immigrated to the United States from India.

USA Today debunking allegations last year that Hailey had changed her name to “move forward” in politics. “Nikki” is a common nickname meaning “little one” in Punjabi.

Haley is the married name of the ex-governor she adopted after she married her husband Michael Haley in 1996 — six years before she entered politics, according to USA Today.
