"Are You Questioning My Character?" Things Get Heated As Whoopi Goldberg And Donald Trump Jr. Go Head To Head On 'The View'

November 8, 2019 17:10

Donald Trump Jr. news is usually interesting for fans and trolls alike. They like to see what the President's son is up to and those who disagree with him are always prepared to speak their mind.

About a week ago, it was announced on The View that Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend will be guests on the show and the audience was visibly shocked.

Despite the overall reaction, people must have been very eager to see how things turned out. And in the end, the episode sure didn't disappoint.

Donald Trump Jr. vs Whoopi Goldberg

41-year-old Donald Trump Jr. did make it to the show along with his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoy.

While things started off politely enough, they became more heated when co-host Joy Behar questioned Don Jr., asking why his father, President Donald Trump, prefer to personally attack his critics.

Don Jr. replied saying:

We’ve all done things we regret.

Possibly in a bid to prove this point, Don Jr. accused Joy Behar of wearing "blackface" once upon a time and faced off with Whoopi Goldberg saying she once defended Roman Polanski.

After a short argument, Whoopi turned to Don Jr. saying:

Now that you’ve broken this piece of ice because I guess this is the fight you wanted.

Clearly getting agitated, she then added:

Are you questioning my character?

Don Jr, also upset, replied:

I’m not questioning your character, you’re questioning my father’s character.

After a few back-and-forths between the co-hosts and Don Jr., the President's son further defended himself saying that all he wanted to do was to show that his father was only trying "do what's right for America."

Social media reacts

Just as it was with the show, internet users also had mixed reactions about how things went down on the episode.

While some agreed with Don Jr. others saw where Whoopi was coming from.

When it comes to matters of politics and other passionate discourse, things can easily become heated. But we have to give props to all involved in this case as, despite their personal and fierce beliefs, they still did their best to maintain control and argue their points impressively.
