WATCH: 'The View' Co-Host Sunny Hostin Claims Eclipse, Cicadas, Earthquake Caused By 'Climate Change'

On Monday, ABC's 'The View' co-host Sunny Hostin attempted to claim that the solar eclipse that occurred across the United States, the recent earthquake that hit New Jersey and New York, and the influx of cicadas were signs of "climate change." Her fellow hosts attempted to save the clearly confused Hostin, but the damage was already done, leading to mass mockery on social media.

When discussing the plethora of theories surrounding the recent earthquake, Hostin explained that the show makeup artist put her coat on when the earthquake hit and said, "Jesus is coming" and "The rapture is here." As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, a 4.8-magnitude earthquake hit the East Coast at approximately 10:23 AM EST on Friday, with shocks felt as far south as Philadephia and as far north as Boston. According to the US Geological Survey, the main epicenter was around Lebanon, New Jersey, about 40 miles away from New York City and 150 miles from Albany, New York. The quake was the strongest earthquake since 1884 in New Jersey.

Hostin, citing the eclipse and the cicada breeding season in addition to the earthquake, then made the absurd claim that "All those things together would maybe lead one to believe that either climate change exists or something is really going on." Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar quickly corrected Hostin, with the latter explaining, "Except earthquakes are not at the mercy of climate change. It's underground. It can't."

"No, it happens," Goldberg said. "And the eclipse—they've known about the eclipse coming because eclipses happen, and they actually can say when these things are going to happen. So all of these folks who are saying it's a sign from God, God doesn't give you warning." 

In response to the clip, Hostin was relentlessly mocked online, with Editor-in-Chief of The Federalist Mollie Hemingway writing, "The View's Sunny Hostin combines an embarrassing lack of intelligence with unbelievably shocking arrogance, which I've found is the least charming form of stupidity."

"If you think there's such a thing as 'too stupid for the View,' then you've never watched the show," podcast host Buck Sexton posted.
