On The View, Sunny Hostin accused Nikki Haley of being inauthentic when she became emotional discussing her husband’s military deployment overseas.

Hostin, who said she came from a military family, did not believe Haley’s reaction was genuine.

“The operative word is ‘authentic’ for me,” Hostin said. “And I think Nikki Haley has been inauthentic from day one. She has flip-flopped, she rose her hand and said that she would vote for Trump, which I thought was disqualifying then. She has refused to not say that she would not — to say that she would not endorse him, she had the slavery gaffes over and over again.”

“This is a woman that I don’t find authentic at all,” Hostin said.

When co-hosts pointed out Haley’s husband serves in counter-terrorism in Africa, Hostin still insisted she did not trust Haley’s authenticity due to past policy flip-flops and comments.

Hostin maintained she did not feel Haley’s expression of missing her deployed husband and kids seeing him was authentic, even as Sara Haines emphasized understanding the feeling as a military spouse.

“I was referring just to this moment, by the way,” Sara Haines said.

“I’m referring to this moment too,” Hostin said.

“Her husband’s serving in counter-terrorism in Africa,” Alyssa Farah Griffin said.

“I think that there’s something that military families do go through,” Hostin continued. “I come from a military family as many of us do, and I don’t trust her authenticity.”

“But you trust that if your husband is gone and your kids are missing [him] — she was saying, ‘I wish my kids could see him tonight.’ You know how that feels,” Haines said.

“I didn’t feel that it was authentic,” Hostin said. “I didn’t trust it.”
