Trump Jr is going on a tour for his new book “Triggered” that alleges the left shuts down free speech. But on Sunday, his own MAGA supporters shut him down.
At the UCLA campus in Westwood, California, the President’s son was heckled at his own book launch because he wouldn’t take questions from Trump supporters! The moderator actually said to Don Jr. “I think they’re triggered, Don.”
The audience was angry that Trump Jr and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, would not take questions. The loud shouts of “USA! USA!” that greeted Trump when he first appeared on the stage of a university lecture hall to promote his book Triggered: How The Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us quickly morphed into even louder, openly hostile chants of “Q and A! Q and A!”
Trump Jr and his girlfriend tried to ignore the discontent but that didn’t work.
“I’m willing to listen…” Trump began.
“Q and A! Q and A!” the audience yelled back.
“We’ll go into the lion’s den and talk …” Trump tried again.
“Then open the Q and A!” came the immediate response.
Guilfoyle, forced to shout to make herself heard, told students in the crowd: “You’re not making your parents proud by being rude and disruptive.”
She and Trump Jr. left the stage moments later.
Looks like Don Jr. got triggered himself.
As the Guadian explains:
When the shouting would not subside, Trump Jr tried – and failed – to argue that taking questions from the floor risked creating soundbites that leftwing social media posters would abuse and distort. Nobody was buying that.
Trump Jr was also heckled outside by progressives, but they didn’t disrupt the event.
