Elie Mystal minced no words when revealing his contempt for the founders of America and the U.S. Constitution, dismissing the document as “kind of trash” when asked during an appearance on “The View.”
The justice correspondent for The Nation was on hand Friday, discussing his new book, “Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution,” when he called out the supreme law of the United States and claimed he could “rewrite” parts of it on Twitter. Unsurprisingly, not one of the lefty co-hosts pushed back with any facts.
“I loved this book so very much,” co-host Sunny Hostin gushed. “The first chapter, ‘Canceling Trash People is Not a Constitutional Crisis.’ Chapter Nine, ‘The Taking of Black Land’ was another favorite of mine, and ‘Reverse Racism is Not a Thing.’ I just think it’s fantastic.”
Co-host Ana Navarro asked bluntly if he was advocating for eliminating the Constitution.

“Some will say, are you arguing for throwing out the Constitution? Should the Constitution be thrown out? What do we do? Is it a living document or a sacred document?” she asked.
“It’s certainly not sacred. Alright, let’s start there. The Constitution is kind of trash,” Mystal responded. “Again, let’s just talk as adults for a second.”
It seems he may have even jarred left-leaning co-host Joy Behar who asked him to repeat his remarks.
“It was written by slavers and colonists and White people willing to make deals with slavers and colonists,” he continued, after reiterating his claim. “They didn’t ask anybody who looked like me what they thought about the Constitution.”
“It was written without the consent of Black and Brown people in this country,” Mystal added. “And without the consent of women in this country.”
Behar interjected to ask the Harvard Law School graduate “do you want to rewrite” the Constitution, though she continued to allow him to smear the Constitution.
“I could, right?” he replied. “I could rewrite parts of it in a tweet.”
While Mystal found plenty of leftists to agree with his take on social media, others mocked him for touting his thinking about America on “The View” again.
“The View is kind of trash,” said me on Twitter.

I dare him to debate someone with half a brain.
Those four surrounding him don’t have that collectively.

This is so cringe. Another example of why you need a conservative host to counter the view at the table.

I always encourage people that don’t like our country and its constitution to go live in other ones and gain some perspective.

Here is a guy that is a guest on a national viewed show, has a book published, and still pulling the race card. The problem with people like this clown is he is looking at a horrible period in the past through 2022 lenses. The constitution makes USA the best in the world.
