The eldest son of the President, Donald Trump Jr., made quite a memorable appearance as a guest on The View recently.
The First Son was accompanied by his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and soon after the start of his interview, he was dragged into a verbal battle with Joy Behar and actress Whoopi Goldberg.
The co-hostesses did not wait long to provoke the show’s guest by making remarks about some of his father’s most notorious moments.
However, Trump Jr. faced the criticism calmly by answering that everyone has done things to be regretted afterward.
What is more, he threw the ball into the ladies’ court by reminding everyone how Behar was scandalized in the past for using “blackface” and Goldberg’s previous defensive statements regarding director Roman Polanski, who was accused of raping an underage girl.

He said: “We’ve all done things that we regret. Joy, you have worn blackface. Whoopi, you said that Roman Polanski… it wasn’t ‘rape-rape,’ when he raped a child.”
The Oscar and Grammy winner hit back with: “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 by: “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.”
Behar vehemently denied that she had ever tried to commit such a racist act, but Trump Jr. was quick to prove her wrong by posting on Twitter a video from 2016, in which the hostess was recorded confessing how she wore blackface.
The First Son did not forget about Goldberg either, as he shared a scandalous article about the backlash that the actress faced after she stood by Polanski’s side when he was blamed for being a pedophile.
Apparently, the interview with Trump Jr. did not go as planned for Behar, as the businessman’s words received strong applause from the audience, and the hostess even tried to silence the ovations by angrily roaring. “This isn’t a MAGA rally” to the public.
One person said: “Yes, Whoopi screwed up! Now let’s hear some of you say the exact same thing about Donald Trump, take your pick on his long list of screw-ups. Give that same energy to pointing out the crap on the President and his obstruction.”
Another commenter shared: “Your dad, however, definitely simply rapes people. I can’t believe you’d even go there, Fredo.“
The son has learned well and fights like his dad.
