WATCH: “This Is NOT A MAGA Rally!” — Joy Behar Snaps At Audience After They Clap For Donald Trump Jr.
Donald Trump Jr. criticized the the hosts of ABC’s The View. He said they were in “attack mode” while he and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, were interviewed on Thursday.
At one point, the crowd clapped for Donald Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle as Don Jr. defended his First Amendment right to speak out against the impeachment hearing and the whistleblower. Behar criticized the audience saying, “This is not a MAGA rally.”
Donald Jr. appeared on the show to promote his latest book, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.
From Breitbart News:
“I didn’t go on here to be a punching bag for them,” added Trump Jr. “I went on there to promote a book [and] to try to get to a little bit of a different audience than I probably reach on my social feeds or on Hannity or … [on Breitbart News Daily]. I want to bring that message to all people and have everyone have a good understanding of that.”
Trump Jr. remarked, “I would have loved to have it be civil. I would have loved to be able to discuss aspects of that book, but they went into attack mode, and that’s fine. I can play that game as well as anyone.”
Following Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle’s departure from The View‘s set, an audience member commented on Whoopi Goldberg’s defense of Roman Polanski’s 1979 sexual predation on then-13-year-old Samantha Geimer.
Trump Jr. stated, “I had a friend in the audience, and she told me that there was someone else in the audience that started calling out [Whoopi Goldberg] on the Roman Polanski thing, like, ‘How can you try to justify it? It was like a 14-year-old kid!’ You know what I mean? Going back and forth, and [Whoopi Goldberg] was screaming at an audience member after we had left. I had gotten a couple of tickets, and one of my friends in the audience was like, ‘It was sort of epic to watch this thing unfold. They even lost on their own ground.’”
