‘The View’ revealed an upcoming booking that might come as a surprise to regular viewers of the show, with Donald Trump Jr. set to appear on the show’s 5,000th episode.
“Trump Jr. will make his first appearance on the show to promote his new book, ‘Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us,'” Variety reports. “Joined by girlfriend and former Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, the senior advisor to President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign is set to visit the ABC talker on Nov. 7.”
Variety adds: “Co-host Joy Behar made the announcement on the show on Friday following a discussion about the couple’s choice of a ‘witch hunt’ costume this Halloween — in reference to the president’s description of his impeachment inquiry and other investigations against him.”
Variety also notes: “The appearance is sure to spark a heated debate among the co-hosts. Even the show’s more conservative co-hosts, Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman, have voiced their disdain for the Trump administration. Trump verbally attacked McCain’s father, the late Republican Sen. John McCain, on multiple occasions.”
