The ‘View’ co-hosts get into a screaming match with the son of President Donald Trump after they press him about his decision to retweet the alleged name of a Ukraine whistleblower.
AceShowbiz -Things got heated when Donald Trump Jr. stopped by “The View” on Thursday morning, November 7. Joined by his girlfriend and Donald Trump campaign adviser Kimberly Guilfoyle, he was there to promote his book “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us”, but the conversation then turned to his controversial decision to retweet an article that allegedly revealed the name of a Ukraine whistleblower, whose complaint sparked an impeachment inquiry against his father.
“I don’t regret doing that,” said Trump Jr. “I don’t think I should have to forgo my First Amendment rights. It’s out there, I read it in an article, I’ve been reading it for a week, I saw it on the Drudge Report. This is not some secret.”
As he maintained his innocence, he went on attacking the show’s moderator Whoopi Goldberg and co-host Joy Behar. “We’ve all done things that we regret. Joy, you have worn blackface,” Trump Jr. said after a quite long debate. “Whoopi, you said that Roman Polanski… it wasn’t ‘rape-rape,’ when he raped a child.”
Denying the accusation, Behar quickly replied, “I did not go in blackface, please.” Goldberg defended her colleague as saying, “No, she was not in blackface. Being Black, I recognize Black face, this I can say.”
Goldberg then snapped back, “Now that you’ve broken this piece of ice, because I guess it is the fight you wanted…are you questioning my character?” Trump Jr. responded, “I’m not questioning your character. I’m talking about, you’re questioning my father’s character and I say we all have done and said things.”
Not stopping there, Trump Jr. also took to Twitter to double down on his accusations against Goldberg and Behar. “Here’s @TheView’s Joy Behar admitting on national TV that she in fact wore blackface. Why are they denying it now?” he posted along with a 2016 clip showing Behar admitting to wearing the offending costume.
He did the same for Goldberg, tweeting an article featuring the actress’ cringe-worthy quotes about the filmmaker. “Here is @TheView’s @WhoopiGoldberg defending Hollywood pedophile Roman Polanski, claiming what he did wasn’t ‘rape-rape,’ ” he wrote.
