(AP Photo/John Blakemore) Guilfoyle ’s name came up as one of those in Trump’s family and inner circle who, many said, should be investigated for inciting violence committed by the president’s supporters.
But the Justice Department appeared to switch gears Friday, with an official saying that Trump and other speakers at the rally were not expected to be criminally charged for inciting a riot. Another DOJ official told reporters that the federal investigation is focused solely on criminal acts at the Capitol building.
The investigation continues as House Democrats moved closer to introducing an impeachment resolution next week, possibly for “incitement of insurrection,” CNN reported. Legal experts also said the First Amendment could make it difficult for Trump and others to be prosecuted for impassioned speeches.
But even if Guilfoyle can’t be prosecuted, she was nonetheless being scrutinized on social media for her starring role in the video, apparently filmed by Trump Jr., before the start of the rally. Guilfoyle, in a black cape, turns to the camera and briefly breaks into the hip-shaking dance she’s been showcasing at other recent pro-Trump rallies.
Guilfoyle ’s voice also rose to a yell, which has become her signature speaking style since the Republican National Convention. David Purdue and Kelly Offer ahead of Tuesday's runoff elections before introducing her boyfriend Donald Trump Jr. She used the same volume and inflection patterns she used at the RNC and received applause because she, well, had a live audience this time.
According to the Daily Beast, Trump called Guilfoyle to “to effusively praise her” for the RNC speech and compared her to Eva Peron, the former first lady of Argentina who is the subject of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical “Evita,” an apparent favorite of Trump's.

Both did a lot of yelling in their speeches on behalf of Kelly Offer, David Purdue and Trump’s vision of America.
Gavin Newsom, specifically raised false claims about people being allowed “to steal elections or the White House or the presidency,” while Trump Jr. revealed his new term of endearment for his girlfriend: “Puerto Rican pit bull.” The term refers to the San Francisco-born Guilfoyle having a Puerto Rican mother; her father is an Irish Immigrant. In her speech, Guilfoyle ’s voice rose to an impassioned, ear-piercing yell that was reminiscent of her full-throttle endorsement of Trump at the Republican National Convention.
The former Fox News host, 51, also yelled out her introduction of her boyfriend Monday night by praising him as “an incredible maverick who loves his father, who fights and believes in this country.” Guilfoyle dancing, incidentally, has become a Twitter meme, with people sharing videos of her swiveling her hips at a pro-Trump rally in December, as well as “getting funky” during Vanilla Ice’s performance at the Trump family’s New Year’s Eve party at Mar-A-Lago.
Trump Jr., 43, revealed his new nickname for Guilfoyle while making fun of the Democratic congressman who closed out the opening prayer for the 117th Congress with “amen” and “a woman.” Beyond being ideological soulmates, Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle appear to enjoy a genuine attraction that they’re not shy about displaying in public.
The two began dating in the spring of 2018, around the time that Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa, the mother of his five children, announced their divorce. The twice-divorced Guilfoyle said she appreciated her new boyfriend for being “an incredible outdoors man” and for possessing certain traditionally masculine qualities.
In 2018, they gave themselves the nickname “Soberly,” while Guilfoyle revealed that she sometimes calls Trump Jr. “Junior Mint,” Yahoo reported. At a fundraiser at the Trump Hotel in Washington in December, Guilfoyle offered to give a lap dance to whomever raised the most money, Politico said, citing two people who were present and another person who was familiar with the episode.
During an event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, last year, Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. joked about how she raised money in hot tubs, Politico reported. At a fundraiser in the fall of 2018, headlined by country star Toby Keith, Guilfoyle joked that Trump Jr. liked it when she dressed up as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, an attendee told Politico.
The report by Politico came after an investigative story in the New Yorker suggested that Guilfoyle had to leave Fox News in 2018 because of sexual harassment allegations made by a former assistant in a 42-page draft complaint. It’s not likely that the mostly mask-less Trump fans gathered at the non-social-distancing rally Monday night were concerned about the sexual harassment allegations against Guilfoyle, but they may have enjoyed witnessing Trump Jr.’s emergence as a future leader within the Republican Party with the loyal and enthusiastic Guilfoyle by his side.
KimberlyGuilfoyle once again 'demonstrated' the strength of her voice on Monday, January 4, as she took the stage at a rally in Dalton, Georgia, and introduced her boyfriend Donald Trump Jr. “I have to tell you, I have the great honor and pride to work every single day with an incredible maverick, who loves his father, who fights and believes in this country. And that's Donald Trump Jr, the son of the President of the United States.
Her tone of voice heightened with each sentence spoken as the crowd cheered her on. After finishing her speech she stepped aside clapping as Trump Jr took the stage.
Another noted: “Sounds like someone was hitting the rails on the flight down to GA tonight.” On August 24, 2021, during the RNC, Guilfoyle, a former Fox News regular endorsed the president in a ‘high energy’ speech.
She added, “America, President Trump believes in you. Don’t let the Democrats take you for granted, don’t let them step on you.” She urged voters to stand for a “president who is fearless, who believes in you, and who loves this country and will fight for her”.
She concluded the speech animatedly by declaring, “Ladies and gentleman, leader and fighters for the freedom and liberty of the American dream, the best is yet to come.” Shortly after CNN’s coverage of the first night of the Republican National Convention ticked over into the wee hours of Tuesday morning, network clowns Chris “Fredo” Cuomo and Don Lemon took over to continue the nonsense.
Just prior to a commercial break, Cuomo suggested that the Democratic convention didn’t need to be fact-checked because they were “not lying” like President Trump. Donald Trump Jr. and KimberlyGuilfoyle sat down at the “hot topics” table on The View Thursday for an explosive discussion.
On Tuesday’s edition of The Five on the Fox News Channel (FNC), liberal panelist Geraldo Rivera defended Planned Parenthood in wake of the video scandal concerning body parts from aborted babies, fretting that it “might put an end to the harvesting of what would be garbage” that “may” help contribute to a “cure for cancer” or “heart disease.” During Thursday’s edition of The Five on the Fox News Channel (FNC), co-host Bob Becker displayed his middle finger toward fellow panelist Jesse Waters during a discussion about how race-baiting by Democrats in the sunup to the 2014 midterm elections backfired.
On Thursday, the Fox News Channel’s (FNC) The Five spent part of its program discussing the latest study from the Media Research Center, which detailed the vast disparity in stories filed by the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC on their evening newscasts in the lead-ups to both the 2006 and 2014 midterm elections. On Thursday’s edition of FNC’s Outnumbered the front man for the rock band Kiss railed against Barack Obama: “I think that our president is not being a leader.
Not long afterward, a mob of the president's supporters invaded the U.S. Capitol in a riot that left five people dead. The video features Donald Jr.'s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle saying she hopes Vice President Mike Pence has “the courage or the brains to do the right thing” and block the confirmation of Joe Biden as president by Congress.
It also shows Eric Trump, Donald Jr.'s brother, being congratulated for his birthday that same day. “Guys, getting ready to go out there,” Donald Jr. says on the video, which appears to have been streamed online from his phone in a tented area during the rally, outside the White House.
“Just awesome patriots who are sick of the bulls---,” Donald Jr. says as the Laura Iranian song “Gloria” can be heard blaring from outside. Later, during a speech of more than an hour, the president made false claims about alleged ballot fraud swindling him out of an electoral victory over Biden.
Trump also had urged the crowd to help him “fight” Biden's confirmation as the winner, and to march to Congress after the rally. When the crowd did so, thousands of people swarmed around the Capitol complex, and shoved past Capitol police to swarm through the halls of Congress, occupying the Senate chamber and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office, among others lawmakers' offices.
Another Capitol police officer died Thursday after being hit by a rioter with a fire extinguisher. Three other people died during the melee, which has led to calls for Trump to be removed from office, less than two weeks before his term ends.
“To those Republicans, many of which may be voting on things in the coming hours: You have an opportunity today,” he warned. Before he spoke, Donald Jr.'s video pans around the backstage area, where a woman who appeared to be White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany smiled as she took a photo of television monitors showing the crowd outside.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows then appears behind him, broadly grinning and giving a thumbs-up to the camera. “Mark Meadows, an actual fighter, one of the few, a real fighter,” Donald Jr. says, a nod to the fact that his father had lost support from many congressional Republicans, and his own vice president, Pence, in his legally doomed effort to block Biden from taking office.
Donald Jr. then pans the camera to capture his sister Ivanka Trump, who is a senior White House advisor, who smiles and waves at him. He's an old, old broken down man,” Donald Jr. adds in a joking voice, as the brothers playfully tussled with each other.
