On an episode of “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg targeted Donald Trump Jr.’s sons. Her attack did not go unnoticed by Trump, who dug up an old video clip in order to teach Whoopi a very important lesson about messing with his children.
In the wake of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation fiasco, Donald Trump Jr. has expressed the same concern as many other parents; namely, that his sons are in jeopardy of being labeled a sexual predator one day by a woman who has ulterior motives.
Whoopi Goldberg criticized Trump Jr. on an episode of “The View,” saying that if he is so concerned about his sons, he must think they are likely to assault someone. “You only worry about this for your child if you think your child has these tendencies,” she claimed.
Of course, this completely misses the point. The reason Trump Jr. and others are concerned is because there is no longer any need for their sons to actually assault a woman in order to be blamed for such actions. Even the good boys, the ones like Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who do not have the “tendencies” Goldberg was referring to, can be labeled as sexual predators in this political climate.
According to The Daily Caller, Trump Jr. did not hold back his thoughts when he responded to Goldberg after she implied that his sons must have abusive tendencies. “@WhoopiGoldberg, instead of insinuating that my sons are potential future abusers, you might want to explain why you defended actual child rapist Roman Polanski? ‘I don’t believe it was ‘rape’ rape.’ – Whoopi Goldberg on Roman Polanski,” Trump Jr. captioned a post on Instagram, along with a throwback clip from “The View.”
“[Whoopi], when your political views are so warped that you 1. Defend a child rapist cuz they agree with you, while 2. attacking children whose parents don’t, it may be time to seek professional help. Truly sick,” he added.
Donald Trump Jr. should be scared for his sons, especially because they come from perhaps the most prominent conservative family in the country. Democrats have learned that if they cannot get their way through legitimate means, leveling a sexual misconduct charge at their Republican adversaries is the next best way to go about getting the job done.
Moreover, it is far easier to prevent our daughters from being the victims of sexual assault than it is to protect our sons from the uncorroborated allegations of deranged women. In the case of our daughters, there is at least something we can do to protect them. In the case of our sons, there is absolutely nothing we can do to ensure that a woman will not come along one day and derail everything they have worked their entire lives for because she disagrees with them politically, or for some other equally outrageous reason.
We can do our best to educate young girls about making sure they only place themselves in safe situations. We can teach them that they should not drink until they are of a legal age, and even then, they should do so in moderation and only in the company of those they trust. We can impart upon them the need to surround themselves with good, decent people who have their best interests in mind.
But, what can we do for our little boys? Even if they never attend an alcohol-fueled party in their lives, even if they’re in church every Sunday, even if they get straight A’s and go to college and secure a great job, even if they have the whole world going for them because they have always made good decisions, they can become the victim of allegations which ruin their lives forever. Case in point: Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
