Maybe the bad energy lingered?
The View‘s Friday co-host, Ana Navarro-Cárdenas, joked in the beginning of this Friday’s episode that she needed to “disinfect” where she was sitting because it was the same spot where Donald Trump Jr. sat the previous day for a contentious joint interview with girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle.
It was only a passing mention (that drew some Twitter grumbling) of a big moment for The View.
“I guess this is the fight you wanted,” Goldberg, 63, told him.
“Are you questioning my character?” she said.
“I’m not questioning your character, you’re questioning my father’s character,” Don Jr. replied.
“I simply said that when talking about your father has taken more heat than anybody else that is not so,” Goldberg said.
Elsewhere in Thursday’s episode, in the episode’s most somber moment, Meghan McCain spoke to Don Jr. about his family’s habit of personal, even vulgar, attacks on their critics. “Does all of this make you feel good?” she asked.
“I don’t think any of that makes me feel good, but I do think that we got into this because we wanted to do what’s right for America,” Don Jr. replied.
“You would think if you’re invited on a show, and they build it up and they’re giving you three segments, you’d think if you were there to promote a book they’d ask you one question about the actual book, Sean,” Don Jr. said, “but they didn’t do that.”
