At a book launch event held at University of California, MAGA cap-wearing conservatives heckled Trump Jr. until he was forced to leave the stage.
Donald Trump Jr., United States President Donald Trump's namesake son, recently released a new book called Triggered: How The Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us. While most don't think there's anything substantial to actually read in the book, the majority do believe that it is Trump Jr.'s desperate and sad attempt at getting some attention from his father, who so often forsakes him. I mean, the poor guy had to write a book full of high praise for his dad in order to get a simple, "Good job, son!" Talk about child neglect, huh? Well, it appears that while he may have been able to get an ounce of attention from daddy dearest, not many others were interested in his book or what he had to say. At a book launch event held at a University of California campus (because why not hold such an event at one of the most liberal-dominated places ever?), his own supporters heckled him and booed — until he basically had to get up and leave with his head hanging in shame, The Guardian reports.
Trump Jr. arrived at the event with his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, who strangely acted as both his bodyguard and manager. He was forced to leave when his own supporters, "diehard Make America Great Again conservatives" as The Guardian describes them, drowned him out 20 minutes into an event that was supposed to last at least two hours. The audience was allegedly angry because a question and answer session was not arranged following the author's talk. They began to chant, "USA! USA!" It was not long before the chanting morphed into, "Q and A! Q and A!" Reportedly, the audience of 450 supporters was told they would not be allowed to ask questions "due to time constraints." Nonetheless, most people called BS on the rather poor excuse.
Of course, Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle tried to ignore the chanting and heckling, at least at first. However, the shouting would simply not subside. Trump Jr. even tried to argue that having a question and answer session would give leftwingers an opportunity to create soundbites to distort abuse — but no one really bought that argument (and rightly so). At one point, right before walking out, Guilfoyle shouted back at the crowd, "You’re not making your parents proud by being rude and disruptive." While this was a downright fail for the newly-published author, it has shown us all the deep rift of rationale that exists between rightwing conservatives. Triggered is supposed to be "the book that the leftist elites don't want you to read." In it, Trump Jr. "exposes all the tricks that the left uses to smear conservatives and push them out of the public square, from online 'shadow banning' to rampant 'political correctness.'" As it turns out, the heir to the Trump throne may have a lot more to fight than just leftwing liberals — he's still got to gain favor with his dad's supporters, too.
