On Tuesday, “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg astonishingly suggested that Donald Trump Jr.’s sons may have “tendencies” to assault women.
Goldberg was reacting to a Daily Mail TV interview wherein the eldest Trump son said he fears for his young sons due to the political weaponization of the #MeToo movement, where an innocent man can be destroyed over decades-old, uncorroborated, changing allegations — a clear reference to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“You only worry about this for your child if you think your child has these tendencies,” said Goldberg. “If you think your child is not someone who is assaulting people, it shouldn’t be a concern for you.”
The disturbing attack from Goldberg did not go unanswered. Hitting up social media on Tuesday, Trump Jr. reminded Goldberg that she’s on record defending convicted child rapist Roman Polanski. On “The View,” Goldberg famously reasoned that Polanski didn’t actually commit “rape-rape” by drugging a 13-year-old girl he had sex with.
“[Whoopi Goldberg,] instead of insinuating that my sons are potential future abusers,” wrote Trump Jr., “you might want to explain why you defended actual child rapist Roman Polanski?”
