Donald Trump Jr.’s book “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us” lived up to its name by triggering leftist meltdowns across the United States when it debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times bestsellers list.
“Triggered,” which was released on Nov. 6, topped the NY Times bestseller list, edging out Mitch Albom’s “Finding Chika” and Fox News host Brian Kilmeade’s “Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers.”
Don Jr. excitedly shared the news on Twitter, writing: “I dedicated Triggered to the Deplorables and you guys made it #1. Let’s do it again at the voting booth in November. You are the best!!”

Predictably, Trump-hating leftists immediately pounced on Don Jr., and proceeded to viciously troll him on Twitter.
One woman sniffed: “Making money from your daddy’s position and daddy promotes it. And you have the audacity to talk about Biden.”

One guy tweeted a photo of profane anti-Trump signs.

One angry person merely tweeted a meme of a triggered leftist.

Meanwhile, President Trump tweeted like a proud dad: “Wow! Was just told that my son’s book, “Triggered,” is No. 1 on The New York Times Bestseller List. Congratulations Don!”

Don Jr. gave a shout-out to BizPac Review last week when he met with our managing editor Michele Kirk at a tony Mar-a-Lago event in Florida.
Don Jr. exhorted to “Team BPR: Thanks and MAGA!”

Don Jr. has been on a whirlwind tour promoting “Triggered,” his first (and likely not his last) book.
“Triggered” describes itself as “the book that the leftist elites don’t want you to read. Donald Trump, Jr. exposes all the tricks that the left uses to smear conservatives and push them out of the public square, from online “shadow banning” to rampant “political correctness.”
In the book, Don Jr. debunks the left’s nonstop stream of anti-Trump conspiracy theories and exhorts readers to fight back against defamatory smears rather than capitulate like conservatives did before President Trump showed them how to counter-punch.
Don Jr. has learned the Art of Punching Back from his dad. In December 2017, Don Jr. laid an epic smackdown on Eminem after the rapper trashed his dad on a rap track.
To prove that he’s not afraid to step into the lion’s den and face down his political foes, Don Jr. went on the left-wing talk show The View last week. There, Don Jr. called out host Joy Behar for wearing blackface.

Trump also caught co-host Sunny Hostin in a lie when she falsely claimed that Trump had committed a felony by “outing” the Democratic “whistleblower.”
First, Don Jr. didn’t out anyone. And second, it’s not a felony.

“The federal Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 includes one section about protecting the anonymity of whistle-blowers — and it only applies to the (permanent) United States Office of Special Counsel. There’s nothing in there about private citizens or anyone else.”
