Whoopi Goldberg lashed out at Donald Trump Jr. on “The View” and implied that his young sons may have abusive tendencies.
The co-host of ABC’s “The View” attacked the son of President Donald Trump over remarks he made on the #MeToo movement in light of the newest FBI review of alleged sexual misconduct claims against Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump Jr. told DailyMailTV that in a world with the “he said, she said” case like Kavanaugh’s, he fears more for his sons than for his daughters.
“I mean, right now, I’d say my sons,” Trump Jr. said. “I’ve got boys, and I’ve got girls. And when I see what’s going on right now, it’s scary.”
Goldberg felt qualified to assess his comments.
“You only worry about this for your child if you think your child has these tendencies,” she announced on the show Monday.
“If you think your child is not someone who is assaulting people,” she argued, “it shouldn’t be a concern for you.”
Co-host Abby Huntsman interjected, defending Trump Jr.’s comments.
“Not necessarily though, right?” Huntsman asked. “Isn’t that the point — in a not tactful way — he was trying to make? And I think [what] a lot of people are concerned about today is: you could be accused when you have been raised the right way — when you did nothing in that situation. We have countless … examples where that has happened.”
Huntsman cited the 2006 case in which three members of the Duke University men’s lacrosse team were falsely accused of rape as an example.
Later in the segment, Behar took another shot at the federal judge who has denied all of the allegations of sexual misconduct against him even as the left is bent on treating him as guilty.
“It’s fascinating that in the middle of this #MeToo moment that we’re in, and you are giving statistics about how many women are sexually assaulted or worse, Donnie Jr. finds a way to find himself and his gender as the victim,” Behar said smugly. “This takes real creativity.”
Trump Jr. may not have been on the show Monday to defend himself, but plenty of Twitter users took up the charge.

Is there anything she won’t say?Lack of evidence means nothing to her.

This is absurd. You don’t have to agree with someone’s politics but it’s a sign of your own character weakness if you accuse someone of something you can’t possibly know.
