The strategy was familiar, as was the name.
Things got heated when Donald Trump Jr. stopped by "The View" on Thursday morning, November 7. It might be American television's closest approximation of the "kitchen table" of stump-speech fame, where we sit, sip and squabble over politics.
Trump Jr. then ended his answer by expressing his condolences to McCain, whose aunt passed away overnight. [Don Jr] woke me up, and said, "Princess, I know this is a hard day for you,"' she said on the show, sharing her sympathies for the Meghan McCain's loss of her father Sen. "The View" hosts McCain, Goldberg, Hostin, Joy Behar and Abby Huntsman were on a mission to get straight answers from him. Neither side was particularly successful.
Trump Jr. was accompanied on the show with his girlfriend and Trump campaign senior adviser Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News host. One recurring spar between the panelists is the one between McCain and Joy Behar. "You and your family have hurt a lot of people and put a lot of people through a lot of pain", she said. She asked if the president might apologize. If we're talking about bringing the discourse down, Joy, you've worn Blackface. "For women, all-time high startup businesses, so I understand that he's controversial, I understand that he's offended a lot of people, but I also understand he took on the establishment and that's the premier sin in American politics these days, to do that".
Was it worth it, though, she pressed, hurting all those people?
Meghan McCain grilled Donald Trump Jr on the show over the president's treatment of Gold Star families.
Trump and Guilfoyle made a spirited defense of the Trump presidency, rejecting the moral equivalence of a Trump hotel operating in Washington, DC with Hunter Biden sitting on a board of a Ukrainian gas company while his father was vice-president.
At one point, Trump Jr. decried "PC culture", which is a subject of his book.
"That exactly what that means", replied Gabbard. Being Black I recognize Blackface. "I know it wasn't rape-rape".
Also this week, actress/environmental activist Jane Fonda spoke about her recent arrests during protests to spur action on global warming.
'Oh my God. We need to get the president re-elected! After the segment, the show tweeted out a flurry of clips and Trump Jr. retweeted an incoming wave of support from conservative media. The Democrats had it out for my dad the moment he was elected, bawled Junior.
"It breaks my heart to hear anybody say anything about your father", Guilfoyle told McCain with tears in her eyes, recalling her own grief over death in her family to cancer. I really enjoy being friends with you. I'm sorry. Part of being president is having a pair that can take whatever heat that comes toward you. "He's created unprecedented levels of unemployment numbers for African-Americans". His wife Cindy McCain said in 2018 that she didn't want President Trump at her husband's funeral because she wanted to hold it "with dignity".
"The reality is this, he's a counterpuncher", Trump Jr. said, "And as a conservative, I would that hope you would appreciate that conservatives haven't been known for fighting back for a long time".
McCain: You can bring civility back to the White House.
Did "The View" get out of hand at times on Thursday? Now i'm asking for the same. we are an opinion show.
