Donald Trump Jr. destroyed “The View” co-host Joy Behar after she discussed the idea of a “sex strike” in response to the leaked early opinion draft of a Supreme Court decision indicating that Roe v. Wade could potentially be overturned.
Trump Jr. reacted on Instagram Thursday to a headline he shared that read, “Joy Behar floats-‘sex strike’…this is ‘war.’”
In his reaction, the son of former president Donald Trump took a dig at Behar and the rest of the co-hosts of the show, suggesting that such a movement would not have its desired outcome. Nonetheless, he went on to thank the co-hosts for “their contribution” to “our cause,” considering the fact that not having promiscuous sex that could potentially lead to unplanned pregnancy is exactly what many pro-life Republicans have been advocating for.
“I’m pretty sure the ladies of ‘The View’ participating in a ‘sex strike’ will not have their intended effect,” Trump Jr. captioned the post.
“Quite candidly, I imagine it will do the opposite… But that’s just me,” he added. “I appreciate their contribution [to] our cause. And I can also assure you there will be no fact check on this one! Even the leftist fact checkers know this one is 100%.”
During the episode of “The View” that Trump Jr. was referring to, which aired on Wednesday, the co-hosts discussed the leaked opinion draft, and Behar brought up historical examples of using the “power” a person has “in the bedroom” to make changes.
“Women in the world have conducted sex strikes in history,” she said. “In 2003, a sex strike helped to end Liberia’s brutal civil war and the woman who started it was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In 2009, Kenyan women enforced a sex ban until police political infighting ceased. Within one week, there was a stable government.”
“We have more power than we think we do and some of it could be right in the bedroom,” Behar added. “I’m just saying.”
Co-host Sara Haines appeared to agree with Behar’s comments, calling a sex strike the “perfect weapon and method for the topic we’re talking about.”
Alongside trying to rile up their pro-abortion female base, co-host Whoopi Goldberg attempted to convince men that the Supreme Court overturning Roe could hurt them too, saying that the proposed decision could “come after” men in “some weird way.”
“I want us all to have the same rights, the right to decide what is right for yourself [and] your family,” she said. “You don’t have to have an abortion. I don’t have to have an abortion. No one does. But if someone needs one, why shouldn’t they be able to get it? And, otherwise, men, this is going to come after you in some weird way too.”
