Donald Trump Jr. torched Joy Behar after “The View” co-host floated the idea of a “sex strike” over the leaked early draft of a Supreme Court majority opinion indicating the Roe V. Wade decision could likely be overturned.
Trump Jr. reacted Thursday on Instagram to a headline he shared that read, “Joy Behar floats-‘sex strike’…this is ‘war'” and suggested that such a movement would not have its desired outcome, going on to thank the co-hosts for “their contribution” to “our cause.”
“I’m pretty sure the ladies of ‘The View’ participating in a ‘sex strike’ will not have their intended effect,” the son of former President Donald Trump captioned his post to his millions of followers.
“Quite candidly, I imagine it will do the opposite… But that’s just me,” he added. “I appreciate their contribution [to] our cause. And I can also assure you there will be no fact check on this one! Even the leftist fact checkers know this one is 100%.”

During the popular daytime show Wednesday, the co-hosts discussed the leaked draft, and Behar noted historical examples of using the “power” a person has “in the bedroom” to make changes.
“Women in the world have conducted sex strikes in history,” Behar explained. “In 2003, a sex strike helped to end Liberia’s brutal civil war and the woman who started it was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In 2009, Kenyan women enforced a sex ban until police political infighting ceased. Within one week, there was a stable government.”
“We have more power than we think we do and some of it could be right in the bedroom,” she added. “I’m just saying.”
Co-host Sara Haines seemed to agree and called it the “perfect weapon and method for the topic we’re talking about.”
However, co-host Whoopi Goldberg said the proposed decision could “come after” men in “some weird way.”
“I want us all to have the same rights, the right to decide what is right for yourself [and] your family,” Goldberg said. “You don’t have to have an abortion. I don’t have to have an abortion. No one does, but if someone needs one, why shouldn’t they be able to get it? And, otherwise, men, this is going to come after you in some weird way too.”
