As we covered a week ago, the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., sparred with Hollywood actress Whoopi Goldberg on The View. Don Jr. brought up point blank the fact that Goldberg had defended Roman Polanski by saying what the convicted child molester did was not "rape-rape." Leftists, of course, were apoplectic that Don Jr. would dare air-out the host's own controversial statement while he was defending his father. Don Jr. was there to promote his new book, Triggered. Well, on Thursday, Don Jr. got the last laugh by wishing Goldberg a happy birthday and pointing out how well his book is doing.
"Happy Birthday Whoopi! Give my best to your fugitive friend Roman! And thanks for hating on me and [Kimberly Guilfoyle] so much, it got me to #1 NYT best seller," Don Jr. tweeted.
"You’re welcome for the highest ratings in months, perhaps have someone on the show who doesn’t hate America?" he added.
"#TRIGGERED #1" he threw in for good measure.

Here is a portion of Don Jr.'s appearance on The View:
As Matt covered, Don Jr. also brought up numerous topics, such as Joy Behar's stint with blackface:
Donald Trump Jr. appeared on The View today and it was as entertaining as it could get. Like his father, he does not shy away from a fight and he will battle to the bitter end against the nonsense that’s hurled at him from the liberal media, especially the little minions that occupy that View table. Julio already wrote about how he trashed ABC, which hosts The View, for firing the alleged whistleblower who gave Project Veritas the tape showing reporter Amy Robach voice her frustration that the network had killed stories about Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse allegations because they wanted to protect Bill Clinton; Epstein had ties to the Clinton family.
Then, host Joy Behar decided to talk about the degradation of discourse and character. Yeah, Joy can’t really say jack about this, and Trump Jr. was well-prepared to deliver haymakers in response. Who wouldn’t if your father is attacked so regularly by these clowns? Trump Jr. immediately brought up Behar’s dabbling in blackface, which she admitted to on-air. We have the evidence. We have a photo. So, get wrecked, Joy.
Don Jr.'s book is currently number one on the New York Times' bestseller list.
