Sunny Hostin Trashes DeSantis Over Marine Vet Fundraiser: ‘$2 Million … For Killing A Young Black Man’

 Sunny Hostin attacked Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday over his vocal support for Marine veteran Daniel Penny — who is facing manslaughter charges in New York after placing a deranged man in a chokehold on the subway.

DeSantis shared a link to a GiveSendGo fundraiser in Penny’s name on Friday, saying, “We must defeat the Soros-Funded DAs, stop the Left’s pro-criminal agenda, and take back the streets for law-abiding citizens. We stand with Good Samaritans like Daniel Penny. Let’s show this Marine… America’s got his back.”

During Monday’s broadcast, Hostin attacked DeSantis for his support of Penny — but also made it clear that her attack was at least partly political.

Responding to cohost and Florida resident Ana Navarro — who called DeSantis a “parasite” and claimed that he only weighed in on culture war issues to stay in the political spotlight — Hostin said, “What scares me about Ron DeSantis is that he offers Trumpism without Trump. So, those people that are so repelled by Donald Trump, and there are many people, won’t be as repelled by him, I think.”


Hostin went on to suggest that the money donated in Penny’s name — which is supposed to support his legal defense — was a de facto reward for killing Jordan Neely.

“I mean, he actually tweeted out about the — you know, the young man that was killed on a subway with a chokehold by a former Marine – Jordan Neely. He is actually fundraising for his defense, and he’s made $2 million already for killing a young black man,” Hostin claimed.

“And you have Ron DeSantis, who’s a lawyer, who says he is actually not a — he’s not a vigilante, that he’s this great guy. When in New York, it’s just a reckless killing, and he was reckless in doing that. So, for a lawyer to say what we’re hearing Ron DeSantis – just tells me how dangerous he is,” she concluded.
