“To clear up any confusion, Whoopi, despite @ScottForFlorida and I sporting similar hairstyles and representing the South, we are two different people. You should get to know me,” Scott tweeted.
Tim Scott is black and Rick Scott is white. Both have bald pates.
Goldberg claimed during her propaganda gabfest The View on Tuesday that she couldn’t differentiate the two “Scott” senators “without a picture” and said “Black Tim Scott” would be announcing his bid for president soon. Goldberg made the strange remark as conservative co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin touted Nikki Haley as a possible viable GOP alternative to Donald Trump.
“Tim Scott, Black Tim Scott, right, because there are two Scotts and I don’t know how to differentiate them without a picture,” Goldberg began before co-host Sunny Hostin noted she was talking about Rick Scott and Tim Scott.
Goldberg repeated their names and said, “Tim Scott is Black, right? OK. He’s about to run, announce he’s running, they’re going to be coming out of the woodwork, so don’t just settle,” Goldberg said to Farah Griffin.
Rick Scott responded to Sen. Tim Scott’s tweet with a photo of the two senators and said, “can confirm.”
