Donald Trump, Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle were on ABC’s “The View” today to promote his new book, “Triggered.” As you can imagine, things got tense between Trump and a couple of the hosts, especially Joy Behar and Meghan McCain, who has an on-going feud with the Trump family.
When Behar started attacking President Trump over comments he’s made, Don Jr. brought up that she once wore blackface.
“(President Trump) called some Mexicans rapists, he attacked the handicapped, he bragged about it,” she said. “We heard the ‘Access’ tape, where he bragged about grabbing women by their genitalia.”
“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.
“No, I have not,” Behar replied.
Later, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted the photo of Behar wearing blackface.

Meghan McCain brought up the character of the President and said the Trump family has caused a lot of people pain. “Does all of this make you feel good?”, she asked.
“I don’t think that any of that makes me feel good,” he responded. “But we got into this because we want to do what’s right for America.”
There was also quite a bit of squabbling over Don Jr. tweeted the whistleblower’s name.
