Donald Trump Jr. defended his kin after "View" co-host Meghan McCain suggested the First Family is responsible for the lack of "character" in American politics.
The incident was one of many fiery exchanges on Thursday's episode of the ABC show, where Trump clashed with the liberal hosts, including Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar. But with McCain, the daughter of the late anti-Trump Republican Sen. John McCain, and the show's conservative, on the attack, Trump had no respite from criticism.
"A lot of Americans in politics miss character and a lot of people miss the soul of this country. You and your family have hurt a lot of people and put a lot of people through a lot of pain ... Does all of this make you feel good?" McCain asked Trump on Thursday's show...

Trump Jr.: "I don't think any of that makes me feel good, but I do think that we got into this because we wanted to do what's right for America." https://t.co/9coDczjMxa pic.twitter.com/hbbHQv24jV
"I don't think any of that makes me feel good," Trump Jr. said, "but I do think that we got into this because we want to do what's right for America. My father has been working tirelessly to bring back the American dream."
Sorry, Meghan, you'll need to get up much, much earlier to try and beat Don Jr.— Wayne Dupree 🎙🎥 (@WayneDupreeShow) November 7, 2019
