The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg responded in her usual hateful manner when speaking about someone from the Trump family, but what’s shocking about this instance is that she was referring to Don Jr’s children.
Donald Trump Jr.’s recent comments on Daily Mail TV, where he claimed to be worried more about his sons than his daughters in the #MeToo era due to the possibility of false sexual assault allegations against them was met with scorn from Goldberg.
Goldberg said he would only need to be worried for his sons’ safety in the #MeToo era if he believed his sons had the “tendencies” to abuse to women.
Don Jr. questioned the veracity of Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. His comments sparked a heated conversation on the show about what dictates a valid sexual assault claim.
Goldberg was first to give her opinion taking the stance that the only reason Don Jr. would worry about his sons is if he were raising them to be abusive to women. I’m sure if questioned she would ensure the millions of men this offended that she was only referring to Trump men.
“You only worry about this for your child if you think your child has these tendencies,” Whoopi Goldberg said. “If you think your child is not someone who is assaulting people, it shouldn’t be a concern for you.”
Responding to the comment, panelist Abby Huntsman, who is the daughter of the former Republican Governor of Utah (and current US Ambassador to Russia) Jon Huntsman, jumped in to say that Goldberg’s interpretation was not necessarily accurate.
“What I think a lot of people are concerned about today is, you could be accused when you’ve been raised the right way — when you did nothing in that situation. We have countless examples where that has happened,” Huntsman said.
Huntsman also said she was actually “happy” that her daughter was being raised and growing up “in a time when she can feel more comfortable to speak” if she was ever the victim of an assault.
Her reasoning didn’t strike any chords with the liberal panelists, though. Later in the show, Goldberg dismissed Trump Jr.’s comments as “crazy talk.”
On social media, Goldberg’s comments were met with condemnation from Trump supporters and approval by Democrats.

Sad to be exposed to such a hateful angry woman daily. Cannot watch that show and listen to them all spew their ugly ignorant rants. Not representative of any woman I want to be or associate with. Happy Birthday to a sweet little boy!

I can take political jabs from adults but when it comes to CHILDREN or minors, I draw the line!

Proof @WhoopiGoldberg is unhinged.
What if a Conservative had said @BarackObama’s girls will grow up to be abusers?

The truth of the matter is that Goldberg says much worse things about members of the Trump family than what Rosie O’Donnell said about Valerie Jarrett, the difference is that one is a conservative, and the other a liberal whose hate speech is protected by Hollywood hacks and her network.
OMG! This has to STOP NOW! This is FAR WORST than Rosie’s stupid tweet! This is extreme emotional/mental child abuse due to it being all over fricken PUBLIC TV for kids to hear, see, & repeat back!🤨@ABC
