The View Goes Crazy With Donald Trump Jr. Mind you we say “drive” but honestly, it’s a short road and well paved. They might be walking it all by themselves.
The hosts attacked him Thursday for publishing the name of the whistleblower, and Trump Jr. said he released it because it was already out on the Drudge Report and other news sites. He said the media was hypocritical for criticizing him because ABC had gotten their own whistleblower fired Thursday.”
The son of the president blasted the network for criticizing him while getting CBS to fire the person who leaked video from a host saying they spiked the Jeffrey Epstein story three years ago.”
Trump Jr. said he does not regret releasing the name of the whistleblower.”
As Nina covered earlier, ABC News did indeed get CBS to do their dirty work and fire the alleged whistleblower who leaked the video of Amy Robach, complaining on a hot mic, that her Jeffrey Epstein story had been spiked to Project Veritas. Don Jr.’s riposte to Abby Huntsman is perfectly appropriate. Joy Behar, of course, didn’t like that the studio audience actually applauded Don Jr.
The hosts criticized Trump, Jr. for sharing an article that named the suspected whistleblower as career intelligence employee Eric Ciaramella, 33, thereby exposing his name to Trump Jr.’s large Twitter following. Trump defended himself by noting that the article he shared had been posted on conservative news aggregator The Drudge Report. “I don’t think I should have to forego my first amendment rights,” he said of sharing the article. “It’s out there, I read it in an article, I’ve been reading it for a week, I saw it on The Drudge Report.”
“Billions of people see Drudge a day,” Trump, Jr. said, rejecting the notion that the article was not well known when he shared it to social media.”
Following robust applause to Trump, Jr.’s comments, Behar directed her ire toward the studio audience, snapping “This is not a MAGA rally!” before continuing the interview with Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle, who appeared on the show to promote the younger Trump’s book, Triggered.”
Plus, it seems like the Democrats might have a problem with their redacting skills…
Um – why is Eric Ciaramella's name in the congressional Impeachment testimony?
Dems said they would redact the name of the "whistleblower."
1. Ciaramella is not the whistleblower
2. Dems messed up BIG TIME & printed the name of the leaker in their own document pic.twitter.com/YrvUIwbt3y

CONSTITUTION: Right to know your accuser THE VIEW
Brian Flood from FOX News reports, Donald Trump Jr. went into enemy territory ready to fight Thursday, blasting the hosts of “The View” for Joy Behar’s past use of “blackface” and Whoopi Goldberg’s comments diminishing the seriousness of director Roman Polanski’s sexual assault of a minor — and when the show went to commercial, Trump Jr. took to Twitter to continue the barrage.
