Bob Beckel said today on The Five that the appointment of Tim Scott in South Carolina to the US Senate was a token appointment, suggesting he got the position because he’s black. He even asked if Haley would have appointed Scott if he were white.
The Five was quick to respond, the first being Dana who called his comments ‘outrageous’ and pointed out Scott’s qualifications from the local level all the way up to the Federal level. The rest joined in and eventually Gutfeld, who lead that segment, said that Bob was making his point that Republicans are racist whether they do or they don’t.
