Trump Jr. Triggers ’The View‘ with Truth-Bombs

First Son Donald Trump Jr. came to ABC morning show The View Thursday armed with truth-bombs that he gleefully detonated throughout the program.

Accustomed as he is to the media’s seething hostility toward his family, Trump Jr. surely knew he and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle were walking into a lion’s den. All of the show’s hosts were united in their opposition to President Trump and his family, and Junior came fully prepared to match wits them.

Trump and Guilfoyle, who were on the show to promote his new book, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us,  ended up triggering the panel over and over again with inconvenient facts.

Rather than apologize for his father’s controversial behavior, for instance, Don Jr. pointed out that co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopie Goldberg have engaged in some controversial behavior of their own.

Behar accused the president of “lowering the discourse,” and said that it’s “horrible for this country even if people are working, we don’t want to have a country like that, do you understand that?”

But Don Jr. came to play. “We’ve all done things that we regret, I mean, talking about bringing the discourse down, Joy, you’ve worn blackface,” he reminded her.

Not finished, he turned to Whoopie, who was doing her best to talk over him: “You’ve said [of] Roman Polanski, ‘it wasn’t rape-rape’ when he raped a child! So lets talk about serious things,” he declared.

“Let’s talk about this … so you want to bring this up?” Goldberg blustered.

“Yeah,” Don Jr. responded confidently.

“I did not go in blackface, please!” Behar exclaimed frantically.

” No she was not in black face. Listen, being black, I recognize black face, this I can say, okay!” Goldberg shouted in defense of her co-host.

After arguing heatedly for another minute or so, Goldberg cut to a commercial.

Back in February, Behar for some reason decided to display a old photo of herself dressed as a black woman in an Afro for Halloween.

“Joy, are you black?” co-host Raven Symoné, 33, asked incredulously.

“I was so cute,” Behar replied, avoiding the question.

“Joy … are you my auntie, Joy?” Symoné asked. “Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?”

Behar finally admitted she was wearing makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

“Yeah, you’re not black,” Raven-Symoné noted.

Don Jr. didn’t back down when Meghan McCain tried to shame him for controversial remarks made by his father on the campaign trail about a Clinton-supporting Gold Star Family, but he did express regret for the bad blood between their fathers.

And he didn’t apologize to Sunny Hostin and Abby Huntsman when they tried to shame him for tweeting the name of anti-Trump whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.

“I literally quote-tweeted an article that had the guy’s name in the title of the article,” Junior explained. “So that whole thing is nonsense.” He added, “I wish the outrage would be equal. There was no outrage when my family got an exploding letter with white powder substance in it … It’s not a level playing field in terms of outrage.”

Behar argued that [Eric Ciaramella] “wants to be anonymous,” unlike the Trump family.

Don Jr. also pointed out the left’s double standard when it comes to “whistleblowers.”

Trump Jr. also some good digs in for Joe Biden and his son Hunter:
