And even in the early hours of Tuesday morning, #Guilfoylechallenge began to trend on Twitter. Memes and Twitter commentary aside, Guilfoyle ’s speech contained a dangerous amount of misinformation.
Thanks in part to Trump administration-passed relief legislation during the pandemic, American billionaires have added $637 billion to their net worth while tens of millions of other Americans are out of work and waiting for supplemental unemployment that may never come. Guilfoyle ’s impassioned speech, which likened Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to socialists, was predictably fear-mongering, with pretty transparently authoritarian aesthetics.
It is also a continuation of the false rhetoric Trump constantly spews, in which he presents himself as an alternative to scary socialist policies, like universal health insurance, affordable housing, and increased taxes on the country’s billionaires.

Guilfoyle also had a run-in with Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris when both were young up-and-coming prosecutors. “I never discouraged her from joining the office,” said Harris, who was running for district attorney at the time.
Soon after Guilfoyle started dating Trump Jr., she told Breitbart News that she had never shared the liberal politics of Newsom. “This is lunatic, fascist stuff from KimberlyGuilfoyle,” tweeted Vox political reporter Aaron Ru par.
Bette Miller and others joked that Cecily Strong should get ready to play Guilfoyle in an upcoming “Saturday Night Live” speech. Even some right-wing pundits thought Guilfoyle ’s speaking style, without a live audience, was strange.
There is no live audience,” tweeted Town Hall editor and Fox News contributor Guy Benson. “I heard Kim Guilfoyle ’s speech and my TV’s not even on,” tweeted the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross.
Well so much for the “uplifting” convention with all the good news that we were to hear about what Trump has done for America. We heard for weeks that Republican strategists outside the Trump orbit were terrified of a convention that appeared to be nothing more than a Trump worship service, filled with white entitlement, victimhood, and rage.

Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Greet Barbara praised Alvarez's speech, and, in a dig at Guilfoyle's, welcomed the businessman's “volume control.” The St. Louis, Missouri couple who came to prominence after pointing their firearms at racial justice protesters walking past their home also spoke at the RNC.
Other speakers from the RNC's first evening included Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Donald Trump Jr., and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley.

Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott and Guilfoyle's boyfriend Donald Trump Jr. all spoke in normal conversational tones. Following the first night of the convention, CNN's Jim Acosta said he spoke with two separate advisers to the Trump campaign who did not love Guilfoyle's speech.
Bush was routinely taunted by the Trump campaign in the 2016 GOP primaries for a lack of energy and enthusiasm best encapsulated by his now-infamous “please clap” moment during a town hall in New Hampshire. I am in my early 80s and have lived long enough to experience a lot and always have been able to manage difficult times.
In 2017, HBO presented a documentary entitled “If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast” that confronted stereotypes about life after age 90. In the film, Carl Racer has a conversation with several of his friends from show business, challenging what it means to really live in your 90s.
What we know : Society seems to have some unrealistic expectations about one’s age and respective appearance, activities and capabilities. Not to be overlooked is Lear’s ability to touch his toes, demonstrating flexibility typically achieved with physical activity.
Such activity improves our ability to perform daily physical activities, improves our range of motion and increases our sense of balance, helping us avoid falling and injuries. For a long and good life, Van Dyke suggests that you “sing, dance and laugh every day.” Without knowing his daily routine, we do know in 2018 Van Dyke played the older cantankerous banker, Mr. Dawes in the movie “Mary Poppins Returns.” He not only danced and sang but jumped on a desk, did a tap dance number and jumped down with a spring and a bounce.
Dancing has been found to have results comparable to formal exercise improving emotional, psychological and physical well-being. During the HBO show, Brooks stood up and told the crowd, “Ladies and gentlemen, the greatest cat sound in the world,” as he broke out into the loudest yowl.
Racer refers to him as “the funniest human being in the world.” Age and outrageous are terms typically not paired together., but there is a book entitled, “Be an Outrageous Older Woman” by Ruth Harriet Jacobs. At the time of this HBO program, all four men continued to work at a craft and art they loved.
Note: A week before Racer died, he said the following in an interview, “I’ve always got something I’m doing and improving.” Helen Dennis is a nationally recognized leader on issues of aging, employment and the new retirement with academic, corporate and nonprofit experience.
At one point in the interview, Meghan McCain addressed Trump Jr., asking him if all the “pain” his family has caused people, like kHz and Ghana Khan, makes him feel good.” The Khans, whose son was killed while serving in the U.S. Army, spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention about then-candidate Trump’s policies. “I don’t think any of that makes me feel good, but I do think we got into this because we wanted to do what’s right in America,” he responded.
Trump Jr. added that “it hasn’t exactly always been peaches and cream for us either,” but he does find his father’s policies to be “worth it” when he travels “around the country, and I see people who are affected by these policies, who are getting to live their American Dream again, who are seeing wage growth for the lowest levels go up. “And again, I’m sorry for the loss, I think you lost your aunt last night, so I do apologize for that as well,” he said, addressing Meghan.
Whoop Goldberg, Abby Huntsman, Joy Bear, Donald Trump, Jr., KimberlyGuilfoyle, Sunny Hosting, Meghan McCain | Lou Rocco/ABC via Getty Later in the interview, the View hosts called out Trump Jr. for tweeting an article that included the identity of the whistleblower whose complaint led to the current impeachment hearings against Trump.
“Why did you want to release that name?” Abby Huntsman asked Trump Jr. “I think the reality of the answer is, the whistleblower’s name was on a little website called the Drudge Report a couple of days ago.
“If everyone in this room had read it, I don’t see any difference whatsoever,” he continued. “It seems to me, and again my point of view on this, it seems to me that everyone is outraged that his name is out there because now people are saying, okay, he’s tied to Joe Biden while Joe Biden was working in the White House.
The President of the United States released the transcript of exactly what happened in that phone call. When Hosting asked Trump Jr. if he regretted sending the tweet, he said he did not.
Trump Jr. didn’t waste an opportunity to take a shot at Joe Biden ‘s son Hunter, and accused him of using his father’s political platform as vice president for his own personal gain. My father has done a lot, you know, I’ve benefited from that as a Hunter Biden has.
Hunter Biden utilized his father’s vice-presidency to magically end up on a board in Ukraine with a language he doesn’t speak on a business he knows nothing about for $83,000. Hosting pushed back to point out that the Trumps have made millions of dollars off a hotel that was opened in Washington, D.C., in 2018.
“But the government-related foreign entities when they come, we literally stroke a check back to the US treasury. My father gives back his entire salary to the US treasury to be put towards causes.
When Huntsman asked the couple when they were planning on “tying the knot,” Guilfoyle said, “Oh my God… If he can get the president re-elected !” You know, my big sacrifice for America is having to travel with Kimberly,” he added.
