“The View” co-hosts on Thursday slammed Donald Trump Jr. for his tweet about the mayor of London in the wake of the Parliament attack. Watch below.

As Gossip Cop reported, there was an attack outside of Parliament and on the Westminster Bridge on Wednesday, killing four people. After the tragedy, the First Son tweeted, “You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.” But the article he linked to was six months old, and that summary statement was misleading, as Khan was talking about the continual threat of terror and remaining vigilant.

Now on the ABC talk show, the panelists took Trump to task for his critical tweet. “Perhaps this young man needs to do a little more reading, or maybe read carefully,” Whoopi Goldberg angrily said. Joy Behar wondered, “What is he up to? This kid, what’s his point?”

That led Jedediah Bila to say, “I think he wanted to look like he was a guy who was tough on terrorism and London wasn’t. Not realizing that… when you live in a big city, these threats are real.” She went on, “To me it looked like an opportunity to seize a political talking point, and that’s not the time for that. People just died.”

Sunny Hostin said that, since Trump is running his father’s business, “He shouldn’t be tweeting anything at all” about politics. She also pointed out that the alleged assailant was British while the president is still targeting Muslims from several countries. And Sara Haines offered, “This is also the problem with Trump and his Twitter habits. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that this is Trump’s son right now.”

Goldberg ultimately declared, “He can have as many followers as he wants. He needs to do his bloody homework.” Check out the video below. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
