Donald Trump Jr. Tried To Go Head To Toe With Whoopi Goldberg On The View And All He Got Was A Line About His Dad’s Balls

If you have yet to find yourself impressed by the words and thoughts of  Donald Trump Jr. thus far, I implore you to not hold your breath for a change any time soon. The president’s eldest child is an American businessman and former reality television personality whose role as a key member of his father’s business pursuits have shifted endlessly from that have shifted throughout his father’s term in the White House. But was remained the same? Trump Jr.’s role as a bad take machine. Throughout his father’s presidential campaign and role as president, the American people have been subjected to Trump Jr.’s more ridiculous moments. The first son delivers a crunch of bizarre tweets and memes to Twitter on the regular that are often laced with falsehoods.

Trump’s recent comments during his interview on The View this week are no different.

Appearing on ABC’s “The View,” to promote his new book, Trump Jr. derailed the show’s conversations and sparked heated discussion amongst the co-hosts.

During his Thursday appearance on The View, Trump Jr. appeared on the show alongside his current girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle to promote his book “Triggered: How The Left Thrives On Hate And Wants To Silence Us.”

He also defended his decision to out the whistleblower who sparked his father’s House impeachment probe and Twitter and insisted to the co-host that his father has “got a pair.”

When confronted about his decision to leak the whistleblower’s name and put them in danger, Trump Jr. defended his decision say “I think the reality of the answer is the whistle-blower’s name was on a little website called the Drudge Report a couple of days ago. I literally quote tweeted an article that had the guy’s name in the title of the article,” Trump Jr. told the co-hosts during his interview. After being further pressed about whether his decision was justifiable, Trump insisted that he was being held to a double standard. “I wish the outrage would be equal. I mean, there was no outrage when, you know, my family got an exploding letter of, you know, with white powder substance in it,” he told the panelists.

On Wednesday of this week, the president’s son shared a post to Twitter that contained the alleged name of the anonymous government whistleblower who sparked an investigation into whether Trump and his administration had been involved in a quid pro quo deal with Ukrainian officials that involved an investigation into presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son.

During one particularly tense exchange during his appearance, co-host Whoopi Goldberg questioned whether or not Trump actually has a pair, to which Trump Jr. insisted that he did.

The conversation occurred when Meghan McCain questioned Trump Jr. about his father’s character. 

“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, including the Khan family who was a Gold Star family who I think should be respected because of the loss of their son. Does all this make you feel good?” asked McCain. 

McCain’s question referenced the criticism of Khizr and Ghazala Khan, Muslim-Americans whose son was killed in Iraq, that had been unleashed onto the family by Trump after they appeared at the Democratic National Convention.

In response, Trump Jr. said  “We have all done things that we regret. I don’t think any of that makes me feel good, but I think we got into this because we wanted to do what’s right for America. My father has been working tirelessly to bring back the American dream. He has brought jobs back.”

It was then that Guilfoyle, Trump Jr.’s girlfriend replied “Ninety-three percent negative coverage in the mainstream media about President Trump… They don’t want to talk about the successes!”

Whoopi Goldberg shot back saying “Suck it up!” 

It was then that Trump JR. claimed that no president had ever received as much negative media coverage as his father. (This claim is, of course, debatable considering how many times Obama and his family’s life was threatened by racist threats and attack attempts.)

Eventually, Goldberg cut into Trump’s words saying “Part of being president is having a pair that can take whatever heat comes toward you. To which, Trump Jr. grinned and awkwardly insisted “My father’s got a pair!” 

What a takeaway to mull over…

Anyway…

Soon after the episode of the show was aired, Trump Jr. posted an antagonistic tweet.

“I don’t think I’ve enjoyed an interview this much in my life. Guess you could say that I just #Triggered The View!!!” he wrote
