*We’re not even sure why he on in the first place, but anyway, Donald Trump Jr., being the name-sake of the orange a-hole in the White House, pretty much acted like his daddy and went after Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar on “The View” earlier today.
Junior. – as is his rep – didn’t hold back ad went toe-to-toe with “The View” ladies and clapped back hard when they had the nerve to tell the truth on POTUS.
Actually, Trump Jr., accompanied by his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle was there to promote his new book, “Triggered” when the heated exchange went down. The conversation – which you can witness above – was tense throughout, but things really reached a boiling point when the panel accused the President of lowering the level of discourse in the country … on almost all topics.
We’ll give him credit for being ready ’cause Jr. turned the tables on ’em. Kinda. First, he went at Joy Behar by calling her out for allegedly wearing blackface. She, of course, took offense to the accusation and denied it. (Behar admitted in 2016 she had dressed as a “beautiful African woman” at a Halloween party when she was 29, and yes … it involved makeup “a little bit darker than my skin.”)
Junior then emphasized his point that “we’ve all done things that we regret” by reminding Whoopi Goldberg that she defended disgraced director Roman Polanski amid rape allegations. (Back in 2009, Whoopi said whatever Polanski’s guilty of wasn’t “rape-rape.”)
“You and your family have hurt a lot of people…” @MeghanMcCain says. “Does all of this make you feel good?”

Then, there was this exchange between Trump Jr. and Meaghan McCain:
“A lot of Americans in politics miss character and a lot of people miss the soul of this country. You and your family have hurt a lot of people and put a lot of people through a lot of pain … Does all of this make you feel good?” McCain asked Trump on Thursday’s show.
McCain specifically pointed to the Khans, a gold star family who criticized then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election.
“I don’t think any of that makes me feel good,” Trump Jr. said, “but I do think that we got into this because we want to do what’s right for America. My father has been working tirelessly to bring back the American dream.”
Wait. There’s more. As he was leaving the ABC studios, he was confronted by protesters. Things heated up when some of the protesters surrounded his SUV … slamming junior for his big game hunting.
