View hosts were outraged on Thursday after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, R., asked high school students to remove their masks before a conference on Wednesday. Co-host Sunny Hostin was so angry that she even claimed she might have done something illegal to the Governor if her teenager had been present.
In a viral clip on social media, the Republican governor can be seen telling the students gathered behind him on the podium: “You don’t have to wear these masks. I mean, please take them off Honestly, it doesn’t matter, and we have to stop with this COVID theater, so if you want to wear them, fine, but it’s ridiculous.
Some students laughed and took their masks off while a few others kept their masks on. DeSantis made the remarks a day after President Biden delivered his State of the Union address where attendees were maskless.
The View hosts insisted DeSantis “bullied” the students, even though he didn’t yell and told the students they could keep their masks on if they wanted.
“You can’t wear a mask, you can’t say gay. It upsets him too. He’s very touchy,” joked Joy Behar.

Sunny Hostin had a more dramatic reaction to DeSantis, proposing that she might do something illegal to the Governor in order to protect her child.
“If that was my kid there, I don’t know what I’d do. I don’t know if I’d show up at the g–,” Hostin said before being interrupted by co-host Whoopi Goldberg.
Hostin continued, “I don’t know if that would be legal! It’s so inappropriate to see that from a leader. I’d go crazy, I’d go crazy.”
The other co-hosts complained that the Republican governor was a bully, spreading misinformation.
“It’s all about personal choice,” said co-host Sara Haines. “These children are at an age where they are already teased and bullied.”

Despite saying it was “choice”, the liberal hosts only praised the children who kept their masks on.
“A kid looked at him like, ‘Shut up.’ I love this kid,” praised Behar.
Hostin claimed the children who remained masked had “good parenting” and accused DeSantis of giving “misinformation about public health.”
