President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was heckled by members of a conservative student group at an event promoting his new book, Triggered, prompting him and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, to leave the event an hour and a half early.

Predictably, there were anti-Trump protestors outside of the event at the University of California, but inside the event, which was organized by Trump-supporting Turning Point USA, the young MAGA crowd turned against Don Jr. after learning that he and Guilfoyle would not be taking questions.


The crowd soon broke out in chants of "Q and A! Q and A!" as a flummoxed Trump Jr. tried to figure out a course of action.

Watch below.

Junior tried to settle the rowdy crowd:

"The reason it doesn't make sense to do the Q and A is not because we're not willing to talk about the questions, cause we do, it's because people hijack it with nonsense looking to go for some sort of soundbite. You have people spreading nonsense, spreading hate, to try and take over that room."

Guilfoyle, meanwhile, may have made things worse by chastising the crowd for being an embarrassment to their parents with their behavior.

“No, it's because you're not making your parents proud by being rude and disruptive and discourteous."

After reverting back to talking points about job growth under Trump, the pair cut the event short, opting for the book signing next door instead.

Trump Jr.'s book is meant to criticize Liberals for what he believes is an opposition to free speech and a platform of hatred and intolerance.

Some found his refusal to answer questions to be quite rich considering the premise of his book.

Some believe that the MAGA crowd is beginning to turn on each other, with one far-Right faction wanting to stop all immigration and pursue what they claim is an "America First" agenda, a faction that doesn't find Trump Jr. and his book tour sponsor, Turning Point USA, to be radical enough.

Naturally, Trump Jr. still claimed that the event was a total success.

It took a global pandemic and a national health crisis for the White House to temporarily restore daily press briefings after more than a year.

The purpose of the briefings is to update the public on the virus's spread and which potentially lifesaving measures are necessary for Americans to take in order to keep themselves and their families safe.

With Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) officially suspending his campaign on Wednesday, all signs are pointing to a showdown between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden in November.

The pair's differing stances on how to curb the global pandemic that's resulted in a national health crisis in the United States are already highlighting just how much more effective—and levelheaded—a Biden presidency would be.

President Donald Trump's hatred of the late Republican Senator from Arizona, John McCain, was widely known even before McCain cast the decisive vote that saved the Affordable Care Act in 2017.

That hatred has only worsened since that vote, with Trump initially refusing to lower flags at half staff to honor him and even implying that McCain is in Hell.

Pastor and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. came under fire late last month when he ordered faculty to return to the university and gave students the option to return, despite the mounting health crisis in the United States.

Surely enough, it wasn't long before students began falling ill.

Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway may be one of President Donald Trump's most vocal defenders, but her husband—Republican lawyer George Conway—is decidedly not.

After months of speaking out against Trump on Twitter, Conway and three other prominent Republican strategists formed Project Lincoln late last year.
