Back in February 2017, just a month after President Trump was inaugurated, Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, wrote a Facebook post with some “wise advice” that was screen-capped and retweeted tens of thousands of times. The first piece of wise advice? “Don’t use his name; EVER.”
Twitchy has already reported on Donald Trump Jr.’s appearance on “The View” Thursday to promote his book “Triggered,” where he dropped the “rape-rape” bomb on Whoopi Goldberg and the blackface bomb on Joy Behar.
However, Steve Guest has caught something interesting. We had to put on headphones and listen carefully to hear it, but yes, during his introduction, you can hear someone (likely Joy Behar) say, “Don’t say his name.” Goldberg complied (it looked like she was going to anyway) and just went with “DJT.”
You can even hear Joy Behar say "don't say his name." pic.twitter.com/5A0D2phIA2

Here’s Kimberly Guilfoyle, who accompanied Trump on the program.
Yep! Now do the one of them asking about civility and toning down the rhetoric. Hypocrisy of the TRIGGERED left never disappoints. https://t.co/dny4MEoDdG

The howling banshees proving Donald Trump Jr's premise and they did so on live television…

There’s no hope for them, Kimberly. They’re permanently damaged. And deranged.

Look how much time Goldberg took to make it perfectly clear that Trump’s views were going to be “diverse” and not at all representative of the hosts.
How you guys sat there is beyond me. Her opening was a lie, they only listen to their side. The disrespect is startling.

Wow I didn’t see the opening of the show. She can’t even say the words Donald Trump; it would send the hens and the viewers of the show into a tizzy fit. Talk about Triggered!

They are disgusting?

Don’t worry, Kimberly….I’m sure the media fact checkers will be all over it??

You guys did a fabulous job walking into the den of lions! You stood your ground and made them look like the fools they are! God bless and keep up the good fight!

By not saying his name shows her character which is shameful. This is why I refuse to watch that show.

I can’t even believe how utterly loathesome these women are on #TheView

This is a example of why the book is rightly named Triggered.

Disrespectful @WhoopiGoldberg. I used to love you but these past few years not so much. You claim to be tolerant but are intolerant. I used to never miss y'alls show, now I turn it off as soon as it comes in. You and @JoyVBehar have become so full of hate I can't watch.

When one half of America thinks it's okay to treat the other half of America in a dehumanizing way such as this we are done.
To think, these are the people who lecture others about tolerance, love, kindness. Hypocrites!

What is wrong with those people!!!!! they can’t hear their own hate and then they accuse our president of the same things that they are doing! That truly has to be a disease, how horrible they must feel inside every day hating so much!!

You’re a poised brilliant Latina, your beautiful smile was very gracious, but I could see the Latina fire in your eyes. Well done Chica! ❤️??????????

I once respected the show and looked forward to it. This is exactly why I stopped watching. Did @WhoopiGoldberg bite her tongue when she gave her contradicting Introduction? I’m pretty sure this was not Barbara Walter’s vision. What a circus.
