“The View” co-anchor, Sunny Hostin, calls Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis a “fascist.”

During Tuesday’s episode, the ladies were discussing prospective 2024 presidential candidates when Hostin kept referring to DeSantis as “DeathSantis.”

Hostin: “I hope it is not DeathSantis.”

Sara Haines: “I think it’ll be DeSantis.”

Hostin: “I hope it is not DeathSantis over in Florida. Because I think he’s a fascist.”

Joy Behar: “Why do you call him DeathSantis?”

Hostin: “DeathSantis. I think — I think he handled Covid miserably. I think he’s a fascist and a bigot.”

Hostin says her dream ticket would be VP Kamala Harris and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. She says the duo would “obliterate Trump of DeathSantis.”
