Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) slammed ABC’s “The View” during a presidential campaign stop over the weekend in Iowa while announcing that he was going on the show this week.
Scott made the remarks during Sen. Joni Ernst’s (R-IA) annual “Roast and Ride” event, where candidates get a chance to meet with voters who are politically engaged and who participate in the state’s GOP presidential caucus. All the major Republican presidential candidates attended the event except former President Donald Trump.
Scott started his speech by giving a short story about socks and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who is very into socks, before launching his attack on “The View.”

“My socks said ‘hogwash’ on them,” Scott said. “While I think about hogwash, it just makes me think about ‘The View.’”
“Anybody watch ‘The View’ on TV?” Scott asked the audience, which began to boo.
“Good, good. I am in the right place,” he said. “I’m going on ‘The View’ on Monday because I think it’s time for a conservative with a backbone to look those ladies in the eyes and say, ‘You do not have to be an exception to succeed in America; you can be the rule and succeed in America.’”
“You see, I scare the dickens out of the radical Left, and Joe Biden,” he said. “The proof of my life destroys their lies.”
