Joe Rogan blasts ‘The View’ co-hosts Sunny Hostin over feud with author Coleman Hughes: ‘Rabies-infested henhouse’

Joe Rogan called “The View” a “rage-infested chicken coop” Wednesday as one of the hosts accused author Coleman Hughes of being a “charlatan” and a “pawn” for his views on race relations.

In late March, “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin “ambushed” Hughes when he appeared on the show to discuss his new book “The End of Race Politics: Arguments for a Colorblind America “.

The author argued that to help resolve racial inequality, Americans should try to “treat people without regard to race” but on the basis of “socio-economic aspects.”

Hostin criticized Hughes’ book as “fundamentally flawed” and that his “argument for color blindness” is “something the right has co-opted.”

“A lot of people in the black community, if I’m honest with you, because I want to be, think that you’re being used as a pawn by the right and that you’re some kind of charlatan,” Hostin said bluntly to the author during his speech. the controversial segment.

She accused the CNN analyst and two-time Independent voting Democrat of being a “conservative,” to which Hughes calmly but sternly refuted.

“I don’t think there’s any evidence that I’ve been co-opted by anyone and I think it’s an ad hominem tactic that people use to avoid, really, the important conversations that we have here,” the 28-year-old said. said the old Cornell grad.

After his heated debate on “The View,” Hughes was a guest on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, where Rogan blasted the show for spewing “ridiculous things.”

“Well, it’s the show that people love to hate,” the 56-year-old podcaster said after Hughes told him how much attention he’s been getting from people who have been siding with him since it aired of the segment.

Hughes told Rogan that he “didn’t know who Sunny Hostin was before going on ‘The View’ and that he had “no idea what to expect,” but he didn’t expect this that the hosts “ambushed” him.

“I didn’t necessarily expect her to try to ambush me in that way and attack my character in that way and I responded to it in the moment like I do, and I didn’t “I didn’t expect it to go as viral as it did, but I think it probably went more viral than anything I’ve ever done,” Hughes explained.

Hughes alleges that the show’s hosts, particularly Hostin, came to the segment with “an agenda.”

Hughes also thought the audience was on his side during this exchange with Hostin.

“Well, their audience isn’t really their audience,” said Rogan, who has spent nearly four decades in the entertainment industry. “Their audience is a group of people they bring in to watch TV shows. »

Hostin claimed to have read the author’s new book — released in February — twice during his segment on “The View,” but told Rogan that was “almost certainly not true,” saying that she “totally missumed up” her work.

“The chances are very low,” Rogan said of Hostin reading the 250-plus page book twice with all of his guests and the rigorous schedules of daily life.

Rogan, playing a bit of devil’s advocate, joked that Hostin may have listened to the audiobook at “double speed, twice.”

Putting all of this on the table, Rogan believes that “The View” has a “very specific ideological bubble that they operate in.”

“They always bring in a token conservative woman and yell at her and shut her up,” Rogan said, citing Megan McCain’s appearance on the show as an example.

Hughes also noted that he had 8 minutes to talk about his book and share his message with an “audience” that is not his “typical audience”, but Hostin spent the majority of the time attacking him for his beliefs.

“If anything, it’s the audience of The Views who need to hear my message the most,” Hughes told Rogan.
