Donald Trump Jr. was heckled — by his father’s own supporters — during a book-tour stop over the weekend, a report said Monday.
President Trump’s son was on stage in a lecture hall at the University of California on Sunday to promote his new tome “Triggered: How The Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us’’ when the 450 people in the audience were told there would be no Q&A session with him “due to time constraints,’’ the Guardian said.
The White House administration’s most conservative supporters, who had chanted “USA! USA!” when Trump Jr. walked on stage, soon started yelling, “Q&A! Q&A!”
They refused to subside, even as Trump Jr. tried to argue that if he did a question-and-answer session, the Republican administration’s liberal enemies would twist his answers to suit their own agendas.
But the discontented group — apparently members of the fringe America Firsters who think the president is too soft on such issues as trade and immigration — drowned him out, the Guardian said.
After about 20 minutes of futile back and forth, Trump Jr.’s frustrated girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, who was with him on stage, jumped in and chided the audience.
“You’re not making your parents proud by being rude and disruptive!” she shouted at the college crowd. “I bet you engage and go on online dating because you’re impressing no one here to get a date in person.”
She and Trump Jr. left the stage moments later, cutting short the scheduled two-hour session.
“We wanted to ask questions about immigration and about Christianity, but they didn’t want to face those questions,” a man who claimed the president is being co-opted by “fake conservatism’’ said of Trump Jr.
