Donald Trump Jr walks out of Triggered book launch after heckling - from supporters

Source: The Guardian

Donald Trump Jr ventured on to the University of California’s overwhelmingly liberal Los Angeles campus on Sunday, hoping to prove what he had just argued in his book – that a hate-filled American left was hell-bent on silencing him and anyone else who supported the Trump presidency.

But the appearance backfired when his own supporters, diehard Make America Great Again conservatives, raised their voices most loudly in protest and ended up drowning him out barely 20 minutes into an event scheduled to last two hours.

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!”

The 450-strong audience had just been told they would not be allowed to ask questions, “due to time constraints”.

The fiasco pointed to a factional rift on the Trump-supporting conservative right that has been growing rapidly in recent weeks, particularly among “zoomers” – student-age activists.

1. They made a bunch of idiots, because they thought they'd be easier to control...

Then the idiots wound up seizing control.
Then the idiots learned that you can't control a bunch of idiots.

4. I wonder what the Trump supporters wanted to ask him?

"Is the president the greatest man in history, or just in American history?"
"How much of your success is due to the genetics of trump and how much is what he taught you?'

I could see those questions, ala that woman in Colorado who said how glad she was that dumbya was president

5. I'm not saying Jr. and Kim are not in love...

...but you know if Gavin would take her sad ass back, she’d drop Jr. in a second.

14. She wasn't always RW crazy...

...And to be fair, I’m not even 100% convinced it’s genuine. She seems much smarter than Jr.

6. I think campus invites should come with

a required Q&A period for all partisan and controversial speakers. In fact partisan speakers should be required to answers questions from the opposing partisan group on campus (for example the campus Democratic organization in Trump Jrs. case). Same should apply for us as well.

16. I think I'd rather watch bird shit dry on the side of a building before going to a Trump, Jr. event.

First question: Is it true the Trump family has the market cornered on Botox?

17. So, he dips into the

Treasury (otherwise known as the tRump family slush fund) to pay his expenses, and those of his side piece? For supposedly "millionaires" this family keeps tight holds on their own money. We are being taken for the worst ride in the history of this country by a family of grifters. He must think growing that beard will conceal the fact that he has no chin! Should have had a chin implant like Iwanka.

19. Dunno

that blank look could just reflect lack of cognition, rather than excessive Botox. Except iwanka--that's definitely Botox overload.

Take responsibility for what you helped create, Junior. Don't just follow the usual Trump family pattern of slipping away like a coward when the going gets rough.

25. I'm sure his book was ghost-written.

How are you going to answer questions about a book you didn't even write? Like his father, I don't think Jr. thinks too well on his feet. He'd just be another tongue-tied republican fool, and he'd expose his dumbfuckery to his expensive girl friend.
