Liberals were very upset when Republican rallies would break out into cries of "Lock her up!" about Hillary Clinton. But they cheer and applaud when the target of the "going to jail" remarks is Donald Trump, Jr. On ABC's The View on Tuesday, Joy Behar suggested the president's older son will end up "in jail." The topic was a gossipy interview Trump's first wife Ivana gave to the New York Post:
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Soooooo – Ivana Trump is weighing in on her son Don Jr.'s divorce, saying he'll have no problem finding a new woman, but his ex Vanessa will, because quote, “Who's going to date and marry a woman with five children?” But it's like, aren't they also his children?
SUNNY HOSTIN: I think so.
GOLDBERG: Is she saying that he's not the baby daddy? What does this mean?
SARA HAINES: or it doesn't mean the same thing when you're the dad versus the mom. Like that you're almost like, ruined if you've had children or something.
JOY BEHAR: Well, first Vanessa is humiliated in public because he has a girlfriend or something. And then the mother-in-law slams her. It’s like they’re the Borgias. You know what I mean? They're like a family of vipers, all of them.
HOSTIN: I was surprised that she said that about her daughter-in-law, the mother of her grandchildren. She's saying, he'll find somebody, he's attractive, you know –
BEHAR: – In jail! [Cheers and applause] In jail! Hurry up, girls! The feds are gonna get him!
Goldberg complained that Ivana has also been in this situation: “She had three [children] and certainly got married again and had all kinds of stuff, so you know, stop being a hater, honey. Stop. [Applause] That's the mother of your grandchildren. Why would you do that? As opposed to saying, you know, I went through this and here's how you can get through it.”
There’s a little more context in the Post “Page Six” interview, showing Ivana’s cynicism about men in general (she is now divorced four times over):
She, too, is “very sad” about the split, but thinks her son will be fine. “Donald Jr. is a good-looking guy. He is successful. He is not going to have a problem to find a girl,” she said. “Maybe Vanessa might have a little problem because she has five kids . . . who is going to date and marry the woman who has five children? Especially since she is young  and she might want to have more.”
Her son’s impending divorce hits close to home for Ivana, as Donald Jr. is rumored to have had an affair with former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Aubrey O’Day, whom he met while appearing on his father’s reality show.
“It’s always distressing, because I’ve been there,” said Ivana of the cheating allegations. “But who am I to judge and who knows what was the situation at that moment?
“It’s a long time ago now, so I think Vanessa knew it all along and maybe she just couldn’t get over the hurt to forgive him. But I honestly don’t know that many men who can keep their zippers up.”
