In January of last year, "The View" host Sunny Hostin revealed that both of her in-laws died from COVID. And on Thursday, the host says she and her family have seriously considered legal action against the Trump administration because of it.

The hosts of "The View" argued that Fauci he became a "scapegoat."
Guest host and ex-Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham also admitted that she was actively prevented from handling official White House communications on COVID at one point.

"My family has thought about this a lot, especially because Manny's parents died from COVID," Sunny Hostin replied, referring to her husband. "And I blame the Trump administration for that. We've explored it. We've explored it, we've thought about it."
Hostin, who is a lawyer in addition to her job on "The View," did not go into any further detail on whether she and her family are still pursuing the idea or definitively decided against it.

'The View': Joy Behar Calls Out Dr Oz for Belonging to 'A Party That Denies Science' (Video) .
Joy Behar continues to be baffled by the fact that Dr. Mehmet Oz is making a run for a Senate seat — particularly as a Republican.
