Don Jr: I Worry More For My Sons Than Daughters in #MeToo Era


While campaigning for Republicans in Montana, Donald Trump Jr. and his former Fox News host girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle appeared in a joint interview with the DailyMailTV, in which the first son said he fears more for his sons than his daughters in the #MeToo era.

“I’ve got boys and I’ve got girls and when I see what’s going on now, it’s scary for all things,” Trump Jr. said, while discussing the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against his father’s Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

After a reporter asked if he is more concerned about his sons or daughters during the nation’s national reckoning with male sexual misconduct, Trump Jr. said, “Right now, I’d say my sons.”

The 40-year-old father has three sons and two daughters.

“The other problem is that for the people who are real victims of these things, when it is so obviously political in cases like this, it really diminishes the real claims,” he added.

As for Guilfoyle, she did note that “it’s important in terms of doing an investigation to get the facts out there” when discussing the Kavanaugh allegations and the FBI’s probe into the credibility of the claims.

“It’s very tough 35 years later but it doesn’t mean it should be ignored,” Guilfoyle added. “But people need to be careful to understand the politics involved, as well, and what motivations people may have.”
