Sunny Hostin: Jon Gruden Hit The Trifecta of Bigotry

Hostin stated that for over ten years, “he was not only misogynistic, he was homophobic, and he was also racist. Most people don’t hit all three. Usually not.”

This week, Jon Gruden resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders after the New York Times uncovered homophobic, racist, and misogynistic emails crossing many years. 

ABC’s “The View” discussed the matter of Gruden’s resignation, and co-host Sunny Hostin touched on “Gruden’s trifecta of bigotry,” adding that, for over ten years, “he was not only misogynistic, he was homophobic, and he was also racist. Most people don’t hit all three. Usually not.”

Co-host Joy Behar noted that additional content discovered in an unrelated investigation wouldn’t be made public by the league. 

“If they’re trying to clean up their act, shouldn’t they put all of the information out there so that, you know, get a little sunshine on the truth here?” Behar said.

However, it should be said that ESPN’s Adam Schefter did see his emails to then Washington Football Team executive Bruce Allen. 

Nonetheless, S.E. Cupp agreed with the sentiments of her co-host and added that Gruden is far from the only one expressing this kind of behavior. 

“He’s not the only one,” Cupp said. “I talk to football players who say very openly and candidly that it’s a homophobic space still. They call it ‘the last closet.’ And that hopefully changes with people like Carl Nassib, the first active NFL player to come out this year.”

Emerald Robinson’s Days at Newsmax Are Numbered

According to the information, Newsmax will be tapping former Fox News chief D.C. correspondent James Rosen to take over the role.

Newsmax’s White House reporter Emerald Robinson could be counting her days with the network as The Daily Beast reports that there’s a replacement lined up to replace Robinson. 

According to the information, Newsmax will be tapping former Fox News chief D.C. correspondent James Rosen to take over the role. Rosen is currently a political reporter for Sinclair Broadcasting Group.

Twitter banned Robinson following a tweet regarding the COVID-19 vaccine stating that it carries a “bioluminescent” tracking device with satanic powers. As a result, the social media platform handed her a seven-day suspension.

The network would then pull her off any on-air duties, and then after her suspension was over it resulted in the permanent ban from Twitter. 

The Daily Beast spoke to a current staffer who stated that the consensus view amongst Newsmax employees is that “she’s just going to be gone” but “nothing definitive.” Another source told the media outlet that Robinson is almost unquestionably done with Newsmax. 

Furthermore, two sources also told The Daily Beast that Newsmax is negotiating with Rosen to become their new chief D.C. correspondent. “Unfortunately, we cannot comment on personnel issues,” a Newsmax spokesperson stated on the report.

The Twitter account to CBS Mornings was forced to delete a tweet last week calling Kyle Rittenhouse a “murderer.” 

Rittenhouse stands accused of murder and is currently on trial in connection with an incident that occurred during a Black Lives Matter protest last August. 

The tweet read, “Kyle Rittenhouse testified in his own murder trial yesterday, breaking down in tears as he told the jury he murdered two men at a Black Lives Matter protest last year in self-defense.”

Last week, Rittenhouse testified that he was running to put out a fire when a man named Joseph Rosenbaum allegedly ambushed him.

Rittenhouse claimed one man, Joshua Ziminski, walked toward him with a pistol while Rosenbaum was closing in on his right side.

Closing arguments in the trial are scheduled to begin on Monday.
