You're fired: Heads roll over Jeffrey Epstein 'cover-up' leak

Watch: Donald Trump Jr. Doesn't Deny His Family 'Hurt American People,' Defends President as 'Counterpuncher'

Robach herself said in a statement "I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn't air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC's editorial standards".

"You're at the White House", co-host Abby Huntsman shot back. Thursday reports said ABC executives warned CBS that their former employee was working for them, which led to the employee's termination.

The hosts dived right in on the news of the day, with Huntsman asking why Trump Jr. had chosen to signal boost the supposed name of the whistleblower whose memorandum set off the Ukraine investigation and unleashed the specter of impeachment upon the president.

Trump Jr. has consistently said he hasn't profited off of his father's presidency. But after an editor from the Wrap posted a clip from the show on Twitter on Wednesday, it renewed a debate about whether Behar was expressing admiration or whether she should have faced consequences like people who have worn blackface.

At one point, Trump Jr. decried "PC culture", which is a subject of his book.

They called Trump Jr. a Russian puppet, and he insisted he was just a private citizen and campaign surrogate. You and your household occupy hurt barely about a folks and build barely about a folks by barely about a distress, along with the Khan household who became a Gold Massive name household who I deem must be revered due to the loss of their son. "Whoopi, you said that Roman Polanski ... it wasn't 'rape-rape, ' when he raped a child". "Now that you've broken this piece of ice, because I guess this is the fight you wanted, are you questioning my character?" I asked a coworker the same question.

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. He also accused Behar of admitting to wearing blackface.

Behar admitted to having makeup she called "a little bit darker than my skin".

Earlier this year, footage of Behar dressed up as a "beautiful African woman" was resurfaced by TheWrap amid a series of blackface scandals making national headlines. "We're the last generation between the life and death of the planet", she warned, and the conversation got serious from there.

Trump Jr. took exception to the characterization and argued that his father's administration is giving a voice back to certain segments of America.

He moreover said that news organizations were pursuing a whistleblower who said that ABC had spiked an instruct on the leisurely perv Jeffrey Epstein.

Actually, Trump Jr., accompanied by his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle was there to promote his new book, "Triggered" when the heated exchange went down.

The panelists erupted, and co-host Abby Huntsman asked why European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland changed his story to show the aid was withheld to pressure Ukraine - and Trump Jr. offered a self-pitying excuse.

"A lot of Americans in politics miss character", McCain said during a rare moment of quiet. "Does all of this make you really feel superior?"

John McCain shares a photo with daughter Meghan on her TV show The View.

"It goes both ways", Guilfoyle insisted, alleging that "93 percent negative media coverage" about Trump - a years-old stat which has largely been refuted. "My father has been working tirelessly to bring back the American dream to those who have watched politicians with no business experience send that American dream overseas to countries that hate our guts", he said. "He has brought jobs back", he said, before touting his father's manliness. My father's got a pair.
