Earlier in the same show, the panel commented on the “Witch Hunt” costumes that Trump Jr. Was headed into a hostile environment and the hosts were going to ask tough questions.
On everything from John McCain to his father’s treatment of political rivals to Ukraine and his outing of the whistleblower. The interview starts off with Sunny Hosting confronting Don Jr.
“ABC is right now chasing down a whistleblower about all the Epstein stuff because those stories were killed. Got the hosts riled up by claiming that “no standing President has taken the heat that my father has.” Joy Bear responded by describing how President Trump has “lowered the political discourse” in the United States.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, who worked with John McCain for years, defends Trump Jr. Told the panel that he “is the son of a rich guy from New York” and says he spends a lot of time in middle America and “people are happy”.
“You have no idea how many democrats come up to me and say ‘Don, I wish they would let him do his job'” He told the hosts. “But that’s not true, that’s a lie,” host Sunny Hosting retorts, “Military aid was withheld.” She keeps repeating “that’s a lie” and Guilfoyle finally admits that the aid was withheld but that quid pro quo was “not the reason”.
Like his father, he does not shy away from a fight, and he will battle to the bitter end against the nonsense that’s hurled at him from the liberal media, especially the little minions that occupy that View table. Julio already wrote about how he trashed ABC, which hosts The View, for firing the alleged whistleblower who gave Project Merits the tape showing reporter Amy Roach voice her frustration that the network had killed stories about Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse allegations because they wanted to protect Bill Clinton; Epstein had ties to the Clinton family.
Then, host Joy Bear decided to talk about the degradation of discourse and character. Yeah, Joy can’t really say jack about this, and Trump Jr.
Who wouldn’t if your father is attacked so regularly by these clowns? Immediately brought up Bear’s dabbling in blackface, which she admitted to on-air.
Also, to Joy’s claim about Trump calling Mexicans rapists, the media really needs to go back to the tape and review. If a Bernie Sanders supporter can write in Salon (yes, that left-wing site) that this was a media smear against the president, then you know it was another fake news story.
The person who debunked this common media myth was a college professor of all people : In one of my courses, at the University of Texas at Austin, I asked my students: “What has Donald Trump said that you found most offensive?” One student raised her hand high: “He said that all Mexicans are rapists.” I asked a coworker the same question.
They’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people. For example, Politico misquoted Trump by omitting his phrase about “good people.” They said he was “demonizing Mexicans as rapists.” They argued that Mexicans do not really commit more rapes in the U.S. than whites.
It was just a remark about some criminals crossing the border. The View has had many popcorn-worthy moments, mostly from the stupidity of its liberal hosts, but Trump Jr.
Taking a sledgehammer to their nonsense is a grade-A premium production. And his girlfriend, former FOX News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, debated the hosts of ABC's “The View Thursday afternoon where he defended his father against impeachment charges, defended his decision to tweet the name of the Ukraine whistleblower, and blasted the ABC network for getting CBS to fire the person who leaked a hot mic video of a reporter saying they spiked the Jeffrey Epstein story three years ago.
“ABC right now is chasing down a whistleblower about all the Epstein stuff because those stories were killed. “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 mean, there was no outrage when, you know, my family got an exploding letter of, you know, with white powder substance in it.” “You're protecting a guy in the CIA and creating outrage, but when your family gets something -- and that's a big part of the book,” he explained.
“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 to those who have watched politicians with no business experience send that American dream abroad to countries that hate our guts,” he said.
He has created unprecedented levels of unemployment numbers for African-Americans for Hispanic Americans.” He also told the hosts that it “doesn't matter” which Democrat wins the nomination to face off against his father in next year's general election.
And his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle were considering a bid to lead the Republican National Committee, but Donna McDaniel now appears set to be reelected as RNC chairwoman with the Trump family’s backing. Appears to want instead is what Politico described as “a kingmaker role in the Republican Party,” one in which he will be “using his social media presence to advocate for favored candidates.” It sounds, basically, like a more ambitious version of what he’s been doing since becoming his father’s unofficial liaison to the alt-right in 2016.
Is a prolific, often illiterate-seeming user of Twitter and Instagram and makes frequent appearances at right-wing events and on right-wing media outlets; he is usually found either complaining about “the Deep State” and mainstream media in a tone of aggrieved adolescent sarcasm or riffing on the ostensibly edgy idea that Democrats will be “triggered” in their “safe spaces” if, like, a guy such as Donald Trump. There is a large audience for such content, and the party has deployed it in the past to energize what you might describe as its fraternity wing.
Fred was a charmless outer-borough landlord who rewarded his son with attention for creating the strategically useful Manhattan tycoon/playboy persona that he still inhabits. Don Sr., over the course of his term, has increasingly done the same thing for Don Jr., an Ivy League alum and boarding school graduate who has nonetheless shown an ability to relate to the misogynist video game meme guys and good of’ boy assault rifle enthusiasts who might otherwise be an odd fit in a cult of personality around a 74-year-old Manhattan tycoon/playboy.
Politico’s reporting and the circumstances of a Georgia ad campaign that launched on “conservative talk radio and country music stations” this week suggest that Trump Jr. Urges Georgians to support Republicans Kelly Offer and David Purdue in the races that will determine control of the Senate.
Is stepping into a Georgia-related leadership vacuum, created by his father’s post-loss indifference and conspiracy theorizing, that has been filled by far-right lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell. Wood is telling the party’s QAnon wing that it’s pointless to vote in the Georgia runoffs because elections are rigged by Democrats; Trump Jr.
His partners in the Save the U.S. Senate PAC are operatives named Taylor Bucolic and Andy Serbian. Is “expected to be heavily involved in the 2022 midterm elections.” Serbian and Bucolic have the experience to do the legwork of finding MAGA candidates across the country, and Trump Jr.
Has the media clout to promote them; the setup is probably thus in a value-neutral sense “smart,” or at least smarter than putting him in charge of the NRA or RNC, in that it allows him to do what he does well (mouthing off) without requiring much in the way of practical knowledge or organizational skills. Things became very tense on The View when Donald Trump and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle showed up and turn on the heat.
Goldberg, star of The Color Purple and Sister Act, said: “I know it wasn’t rape-rape. And that’s why he left.” Polanski was arrested in Zurich, Switzerland on Sunday and faces extradition to the United States.
His victim, Samantha Bailey, told a grand jury that the director had plied her with champagne and drugs and taken nude pictures of her in a hot tub during a fashion shoot. Polanski then had sexual intercourse with her despite her resistance and requests to be taken home, she said. The director originally faced charges including rape and sodomy, but they were dismissed following plea bargaining, and he admitted unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.
The couple was on hand to promote Junior’s new book Triggered,” which clearly stole its title from the 8,000 Netflix specials about comedians who are mad about pronouns. But before we begin, I really want to set the table with this anecdote from last month’s The Atlantic piece that actually tried to suggest that Junior is some sort of burgeoning “kingmaker” in the Republican Party.
The excerpt is from the beginning of his relationship with Guilfoyle and how his father reacted slash made everything super gross. Some suspected that the president was simply fed up with the distraction the relationship posed.
Over the years, Trump had frequently made suggestive comments about Guilfoyle’s attractiveness, the adviser told me, and more than once inquired about whom she was dating. The President of the United States was jealous that his son banged a Fox News anchor before he could.
Not even a few seconds after the couple was introduced, Abby Huntsman surprisingly came out firing and basically said, “F**k a book, let’s talk about you naming the whistleblower,” and from there everyone starting pouring gasoline on the nepotistic trash fire trying to be Father’s #1 Candy Boy. “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.
Argued that was only a crime if the inspector general revealed the name, but Hosting pushed back. Noticeably, Meghan McCain was quiet as a church mouse during this whole production.
“Part of being president is having a pair that can take whatever heat comes towards you.” From there, the panel devolved even further to the point where Whoop had to ring a goddamn bell to get everyone to shut up, which prompted Junior to make a quip that Whoop was an example of “P.C. I’m talking he literally equated himself to Bill Burr and Dave Chappelle, which says a lot about that whole situation.
Yet, somehow, these two jerk holes managed to drive Whoop to the brink of booting their asses off of the show in just over 20 minutes.
