Donald Trump Jr. Is Getting Dragged for Saying He Is More Scared for His Sons Than His Daughters in the #MeToo Era

Amid the growing scandal involving sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump Jr. says he fears for his sons more than his daughters because of the potential for such claims to ruin their lives.

"I've got boys and I've got girls and when I see what's going on right now, it's scary for all things," Junior told DailyMailTV in an exclusive interview set to air Monday and Tuesday.

When asked who he was most scared for, Junior said: "Right now, I'd say my sons."

"The other problem is for the people who are the real victims of these things [sexual assaults] when it is so obvious like in cases like this," Junior said of Kavanaugh's first accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, "it really diminishes the real claims."

Junior's girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former California federal prosecutor, also weighed in on Ford's accusations and the FBI investigation delaying his confirmation.

"I think it's important, in terms of doing an investigation, to get the facts out there and find out," Guilfoyle said. "It’s very tough thirty-five years later, but it doesn't mean it should be ignored."

Guilfoyle added: "People need to be careful to understand the politics involved as well, and what motivations people may have," implying that Ford's story is a political hit job.

Social media didn't take kindly to Junior's comments, particularly because of numerous allegations his father, President Donald Trump, has himself faced of sexual misconduct.

Others had some suggestions for Junior on how he could better prepare his sons - for instance, teaching them not to assault women.

Here are some helpful tips, just as a guide.

This tweet following Kavanaugh's Thursday testimony last week sums things up nicely (though the statistics are actually higher than 20 percent).

The big takeaway?

Though Junior may have more to fear.
