And Kimberly Guilfoyle listen as Whoop Goldberg speaks on “The View.” ABC via Getty Images this wasn’t chaotic enough, security was called once again as some of Trump ’s guests were spotted on their phone while the show was taping. Businessman Leandro Rizzo Jr., who was nominated by President Trump in January 2018 to become the next United States Ambassador to Barbados, was also invited.
Bill White, CEO of the Constellations Group, was joined by his husband Bryan Sure, alongside businessman Russ Congo, and Charles and Debbie Norbert. Appearing on ABC’s “The View,” the first son was grilled by the show’s co-hosts while hawking his new book in an interview that quickly degenerated into a heated shout fest.
“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. Asked if that made it right, he decried what he said was a double standard, and said no one cared when an envelope with white powder was sent to his Manhattan home and opened by his then-wife, Vanessa Trump, in February 2018.
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 said. President Trump ’s son on Wednesday sent a tweet that contained the purported name of the anonymous government whistleblower who set off the investigation into whether the White House attempted to strong-arm Ukrainian officials into probing a political rival of the commander in chief.
Does all this make you feel good?” McCain asked, referring to Trump ’s criticism of kHz and Ghana Khan, Muslim-Americans whose son was killed in Iraq, after they appeared at the Democratic National Convention. Replied by defending the president and pointing to his record in office.
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,” he said, before touting his father’s manliness. When he’s under attack by the establishment, but the reality is, he’s a counter puncher, and as a conservative, I would hope you would appreciate that conservatives haven’t been known for fighting back for a very long time,” Trump Jr.
The hosts dived right in on the news of the day, with Huntsman asking why Trump Jr. Had chosen to signal-boost the supposed name of the whistleblower whose memorandum set off the Ukraine investigation and unleashed the specter of impeachment upon the president.
He had done so after a weeks-long attempt in conservative online media to unmask and publicize the official’s identity. Most mainstream news outlets, including The Washington Post, have not published the name, and U.S. officials have not disclosed it, in compliance with federal laws.
Guilfoyle, a former Fox News host who is now a senior adviser for the Trump campaign, attempted to maintain some semblance of decorum while still defending the president and his son from a unified front of critics. “Okay, it wasn’t the most prudent decision to retweet an article,” she said, later adding, “I did come out of the bathroom and say, ‘I left you alone for 10 minutes; what happens when capacity is gone?’” She also said that the president had been transparent in releasing a transcript (it was not quite a transcript) of his July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“A lot of Americans in politics miss character,” McCain said during a rare moment of quiet. “I don’t think any of that makes me feel good, but I do think that we got into this because we wanted to do what’s right for America,” Trump Jr.
“My father has been working tirelessly to bring back the American Dream.” In a 2016 episode where the hosts discussed natural hair, Bear displayed a photograph of her younger self dressed as a “beautiful African woman” for Halloween and wearing “makeup a little darker than my skin” and sporting her natural curls.
Toward the end, Trump and Guilfoyle, who began dating in 2018, were asked if they were getting married. Nothing groundbreaking was learned, but the show did provide a glut of confrontational content that both liberals and conservatives could serve up to their hungry followers on social media.
Appeared on to promote his book “Triggered” alongside girlfriend and Trump adviser Kimberly Guilfoyle, the president's son faced the co-hosts around the table and discussed controversial topics such as his tweet about the federal whistleblower. Co-host Joy Bear listed some of President DonaldTrump's headline-making behavior.
“(President Trump) called some Mexicans rapists, he attacked the handicapped, he bragged about it,” she said. “We've all done things that we regret, I mean, if we're talking about bringing a discourse down, Joy, you've worn blackface,” he responded.
Trump's team continued the conversation on Twitter, posting a side-by-side photo of Bear. “Here's the picture of review's Joy Bear in blackface,” the tweet read with the hashtag #FactsFirst.
Releasing the name of the whistleblower whose complaint led to impeachment hearings for the president. “The whole point of releasing a name is to intimidate someone, to threaten someone and to scare other people from coming out.
“I think the reality of the answer is, the whistleblower's name was on a little website called the Drudge Report a couple of days ago,” he said, adding that he wished “the outrage would be equal.” “There was no outrage when my family got an exploding letter with white powder substance in it,” he said.
“Initially he was charged with rape, and then he pled guilty to having sex with a minor,” she said. In that episode, she also suggested that the attitude toward teenagers having sex was different years ago, even if she did not agree with how it used to be.
In a deal with prosecutors, Polanski pleaded guilty in the ’70s to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor after being charged with drugging and raping a teenage girl. The audience was reportedly vocal throughout the interview, which saw the panel grill Don Jr.
On the impeachment investigation against his dad, his feelings about Joe and Hunter Biden, his own social media behavior and his thoughts on the 2020 presidential election. In addition to the regular boos, there were cheers and clapping in support of Don Jr.
To a “dictator” for tweeting out the alleged name of the whistleblower in the Ukraine scandal. “The whole point of releasing a name is to intimidate someone, to threaten someone, and to scare other people from coming out,” she said.
Defended his actions by arguing that the name had already been published on sites like the Drudge Report and expressed no regret for doing what could amount to a federal crime. He went on to whine that he wishes the “outrage” was equal when his family has been targeted by critics.
Asked if, as a lawyer, she advised him not to do it, Guilfoyle revealed that she was in the bathroom at the time. “I did say when I came out of the bathroom, ‘I left you alone for 10 minutes, what happened while Capacity was gone?’” she joked.
Soon, all seven people on stage were talking over each other and Goldberg was forced to ring a bell to get them all to shut up. Suggested that Gordon Woodland, Trump ’s ambassador to the European Union, lied to Congress because he’s “afraid of being attacked like so many of us have by a vicious left that’s running a one-sided campaign,” loud boos could be heard coming from the audience.
She did not seem satisfied by his answer about “unprecedented” low unemployment numbers for African Americans. Ultimately, it was left to Goldberg to prevent the couple from trying to rewrite history live on the air.
“And no sitting president has taken the heat that President Trump has taken.” In the next moment, he attacked Joy Bear for supposedly wearing blackface and Goldberg for defending Roman Polanski.
