A teenage carjacking suspect is hospitalized in critical condition after a Thursday night shootout with an armed Philadelphia driver.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports a 16-year-old carjacker allegedly tried to take a 60-year-old man’s “white Pontiac at gunpoint…around 7:45 p.m. at Sharpnack and Cherokee Streets.”

The man, a concealed carry permit holder, pulled a gun and exchanged gunfire with the alleged carjacker.

The suspect was shot in the chest and in the leg.

NBC Philadelphia reports that a total of 17 rounds were fired in the gun battle.

There were 750 carjackings in Philadelphia during 2021 and “there have already been 90 in the city just 13 days into 2022.”

ABC’s Hostin: Republicans Are Treating Biden Like a Black President

ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin said Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that Republicans treated President Joe Biden like a black president.

Hostin said, “There are things that he has not gotten credit for, like he’s inherited this pandemic from the Trump administration. It was badly handled. He was able to pass a 1.9 trillion dollar relief package which a majority of Republicans voted against. That’s something that he gets credit for. I think he also gets credit for his incredibly diverse judicial nominations. I think there has been about 41 federal judges. Those are lifetime appointments.”

She continued, “I think where he hasn’t done well is basically delivering federal policy in favor of the people who put him in the White House, and that is communities of color. We didn’t see any movement on voting rights. We didn’t see any movement in police reform.”

Hostin added, “The infrastructure was a leaning-into white independence, and I think it was a leaning into white moderates, but the bottom line is, those aren’t the folks who really took him over the finish line. That is not the Democratic base. No Democratic president has made it into the White House without the support of the black community. The black community now, voters 50 and over that are registered, there’s been a 36-point drop in the net approval. What I took away was he said something like I had no idea that my Republican friends would do this. Well, he’s governing like it’s the 1990s. It’s 2022. He sat for eight years next to a black president yet didn’t think he would be treated like one, and that is what he is being treated like.”

Behar: ‘Dense’ Biden Thought Other White Privileged Senators Would Work with Him

Joy Behar told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that President Joe Biden was “dense” for thinking his fellow “white privileged” senators would work with him.

Whoopi Goldberg said, “Part of the problem for Joe is none of us, none of us ever anticipated we would be sitting in front of senators and congresspeople who are denying the fact that someone won an election. I never saw that before. I don’t think it occurred to him that would ever be Republicans who would go that far to say this was a lie. I think a lot of this, he thought, you know, we’ll beat each other up as we have in the past. This is a whole new group.”

Behar said, “But, Whoopi n the ’90s Newt Gingrich, had a contract on America.”

Ana Navarro said, “With America.”

Behar shot back, “I like to say it was on America. Then you have Mitch McConnell say that his whole idea going forward with Obama was to make sure he was a one-term president. Then he said about Biden, we’re going to obstruct, and we’re not going to let him do anything he wants to do. So I mean, how dense was Biden really in these instances? You’re a white privilege senator in the United States Congress, so you believe other white privilege guys will work with you, but they won’t, and they don’t.”
