Even before Donald Trump Jr. appeared on The View yesterday, liberal celebrities were crying about their anger.
Will and Grace actress Debra Messing, who has not kept hysterically over all things Trump for the past four years, was furious that the president's son was allowed to continue.
& # 39; Why would you bring him? & # 39; she tweeted the Twitter account of the ABC show. & # 39; Try your & # 39; to be in balance & # 39;? & # 39;
You could almost feel the bile run over her lips as she spit out the dreaded B word.
No one is allowed anymore & # 39; in balance & # 39; about President Trump.
For violent anti-Trumpers such as Mrs. Messing, only extremely UN-balanced hyperpartisan hatred and aversion are acceptable.
& # 39; He and his family have attacked our country, & # 39; continued Brass, & our democracy, our environment, our national security, moral compass. Very disappointing and irresponsible decision. & # 39;
Even before Donald Trump Jr. appeared on The View yesterday, liberal celebrities howled their anger – and while the confrontation continued, things became fascinatingly ugly
Brass is an expert in disappointing and irresponsible decisions.
A few weeks ago she demanded that the Hollywood Reporter publish the names of everyone who attended a Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Her Will and Grace co-star Eric McCormack revealed the sinister motive behind this requirement: & Kindly report to anyone attending this event so that the rest of us can be clear with whom we do not want to work. Thank you. & # 39;
Ironically, it was View co-host Whoopi Goldberg who reminded Messing and McCormack of the last time the Hollywood Reporter 70 years ago had a & # 39; blacklist & # 39; when it called people in the industry suspected of being communists or sympathizers.
It led to people – including actors, producers, directors and set designers – being embarrassed, fired, shunned and, in some cases, committing suicide.
But Messing and McCormack did not care about such a trivial historical horror – they just wanted pro-trumpers of the same name, embarrassed, slandered and banned.

Trump Jr., who appeared next to girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, turned the table on some of the most cruel critics of his family and exposed their bleeding hypocrisy
There is of course no legitimate reason why Donald Trump Jr. should not be a guest on ABC & # 39; s excellent and top class daytime ship.
He is not only the son of the president, he was also a famous name long before the White House beckoned to his family, thanks to his many years as a counselor for his father at The Apprentice, where I first met him 12 years ago.
I have since found him a smart, entertaining and combative character, very much in the form of his father to whom he is fiercely loyal. And he is a very good media executor.
So I was fascinated to see how he would move forward when he appeared in a show whose stars, notably Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain, have made no secret of their contempt for the president. (So much so that Goldberg would not even mention the name of Donald Trump Sr. at the start of the show.)
The answer was … spectacular.
When he came under fire for his father's inappropriate behavior, Trump Jr. replied. by saying: & # 39; we have all done things that we regret & # 39; and then accused the shocked Behar of having once worn a black face. In 2016 she shared this image of herself dressed as & # 39; a beautiful African woman & # 39; at a costume party
It was even one of the wildest talk show interviews I can ever remember when I watched, accompanied by constant raw anger and cheers from the audience.
It was also one of the most revealing.
Because Trump Jr. turned the table with some of the wildest critics of his family and exposed their searing hypocrisy.
When he was grilled about his decision to tweet an article with the name of the alleged whistleblower in the Ukrainian scandal, Trump Jr. pointed out that the name had not appeared on numerous media websites, such as the Drudge report, but ABC had literally baked a & # 39; whistleblower & # 39; from an ex-employee for leaking harmful information about the alleged network cover-up of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal – firing the person by their new bosses at CBS.
And then Sunny Hostin said that Trump Jr. had violated the law by taking the whistleblower out of the cupboard, & he replied that it was not a crime for civilians.
He was right.
A few weeks ago, Messing and her Will and Grace co-star Eric McCormack demanded that the Hollywood Reporter publish the names of anyone attending a Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills, revealing the sinister motive behind this claim: & # 39; everyone who attends this event, so that the rest of us can be clear with whom we do not want to work. Thank you. & # 39;
Like DailyMail.com, the American political editor David Martosko, it reported no crime for private individuals to eliminate whistleblowers.
As the showdown progressed, things became fascinatingly ugly.
When he came under fire for his father's inappropriate behavior, Trump Jr. replied. by saying: & # 39; we have all done things that we regret & # 39; and then accused the shocked Behar of having once worn a black face.
& # 39; I did not go into blackface! & # 39; she exclaimed indignantly.
This was a lying lie. She did.
& # 39; No, she wasn't in Blackface! & # 39; Goldberg insisted. & # 39; I am black and recognize Blackface. I know when I see it. & # 39;
Hmmm. Obviously not.
In a previous episode of The View in 2016, Behar admitted that she had deliberately darkened her skin color for a party like & # 39; beautiful African woman & # 39; to attend. A photo of her with her black face even appeared on the screen.
Trump Jr. then turned to Goldberg and accused HER of trivializing fugitive child molester Roman Polanski.
& # 39; Whoopi, you said Roman Polanski … it was not & # 39; rape & # 39; when he raped a child. & # 39;
Goldberg was stunned by her own words in 2009 when she was heavily criticized for defending Polanski who drugged, raped and sodomized a 13-year-old girl and then fled America to escape justice.
& # 39; I know it wasn't rape, & # 39; she said then. & # 39; It was something else. & # 39;
By reminding Goldberg of her shocking statement, Trump reminded Jr. us also to all the shameful continued support of Hollywood for Polanski, who is astonishingly hypocritical in this # MeToo era where liberals seek blood at the slightest suggestion of sexually ill behavior.
There were times when Trump Jr. was rightly convicted of his father's actions, not least his horrible attacks on Gold Star families such as the parents of the killed American soldier Humayan Khan.
Meghan McCain, who herself has had to undergo terrible and utterly unacceptable mistreatment of President Trump about her father, the late Senator John McCain, spoke calmly and dignely when she said: “You and your family are hurting many people and caused many people to be in great pain, including the Gold Star Khan family, & she said. & # 39; Does this make you feel good? & # 39;
& # 39; I don't think this makes me feel good, & # 39; he replied at a commendable moment of honesty.
He defended his father by praising his undeniable economic performance and said: "He has reduced jobs, he has created an unprecedented level of unemployment for African-Americans."
At this point, Goldberg shrank back into fake horror and sighed audible disbelief.
& # 39; You can't argue with it because it's a fact & # 39 ;, Trump Jr. said.
& # 39; It's not a fact, & # 39; said Goldberg.
But it is a fact. The unemployment rates for African-Americans are at a record high.
It's just not a fact that liberal celebrities want to honor President Trump because they don't want to honor him for anything.
Just as they do not want to pay attention to Hunter Biden's increasingly suspicious-looking activities in Ukraine, which, as Trump Jr has pointed out, received boards of companies and languages that he cannot speak in companies he knows nothing left. & # 39;
President Trump has big questions to answer about his behavior with Ukraine, but Joe Biden also about his son's behavior there when he was vice president.
The fact that liberal celebrities do not care about the Biden side of this scandal comes back to Debra Messing's anger about the b-word: balance. Or lack thereof.
Donald Trump Jr. was booked in The View for his new book & # 39; Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants To Silence Us & # 39; to promote.
Yet he was never asked a single question about the book, an extraordinary rudeness that The View hosts would never have applied to another author.
But then, as he said, there is one rule for the Trumps and another for all others.
It took guts for Trump Jr. to go into the den of the lionesses yesterday and he got the savage he expected.
But he gave as good as he got, and by doing so, he also exposed much of the shameless hypocrisy and selective indignation that permeates the liberal anti-Trump mentality.
Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg are delighted to regularly say that President Trump is a lying racist bastard.
But yesterday, Behar brutally lied to her audience about black-up, and Goldberg was confronted with her own shameful defense of a child rapist.
The high moral ground is a very precarious place.
And while I keep warning, the higher hypocritical liberal celebrities are trying to climb it, the easier they make it for President Trump to be re-elected.
