Donald Trump Jr. did not hold back his thoughts when he responded to Whoopi Goldberg after she implied that his sons must have abusive tendencies.
“You only worry about this for your child if you think your child has these tendencies,” Goldberg shared on “The View” Tuesday. “If you think your child is not someone who is assaulting people, it shouldn’t be a concern for you.”
“@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 his post on Instagram, along with a throwback clip from when “The View” co-host appeared to be defending Polanski over allegations that he had sex with a minor.

He added, “[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.”
The comments came in response to what Goldberg said when she took a swipe at Trump Jr.’s sons over his interview with DailyMailTV, when Trump Jr. said he was more concerned right now for his three sons than his two daughters in “an age when lives can be ruined on both sides of he-said, she-said sexual misconduct claims.”
His interview with Daily Mail came in light of sexual assault allegations brought against Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“I mean, right now, I’d say my sons,” Trump Jr. explained. “I’ve got boys, and I’ve got girls. And when I see what’s going on right now, it’s scary.”
