Most of us would definitely do like a finger gun into a point into one of those big arm waves that look completely detached from the rest of the body. Or what Tiffany Trump did when she gave that one speech on her dad’s behalf (blowing of kisses, stiff-armed waving, fist movements).
Listen, I have never walked out onto a stage to music with fireworks spitting around me and my name written 20 feet tall behind me. Most of us would definitely do like a finger gun into a point into one of those big arm waves that look completely detached from the rest of the body.
Or what Tiffany Trump did when she gave that one speech on her dad’s behalf (blowing of kisses, stiff-armed waving, fist movements). VT Editors is a General Posting account managed by Jim W. Dean and Gordon Duff.

A little over a month since her prominent appearance at the Republican National Convention, a report from Then Worker ’s Jane Mayer provides new information on how KimberlyGuilfoyle left her prior position at Fox News in the summer of 2018.
The woman was hired in 2015, just out of college, to work as an assistant for Guilfoyle and another former Fox host, Eric Bowling. The draft complaint also alleged that Guilfoyle spoke incessantly and luridly about her sex life, and on one occasion demanded a massage of her bare thighs; other times, she said, Guilfoyle told her to submit to a Fox employee’s demands for sexual favors, encouraged her to sleep with wealthy and powerful men, asked her to critique her naked body, demanded that she share a room with her on business trips, required her to sleep over at her apartment, and exposed herself to her, making her feel deeply uncomfortable.
I was driving down my street in a purple district of Southern California and I saw a sign that really upset me. I won’t have signs in my yard saying “Biden 2020, Let’s Make Conservatives Cry,” because I don’t want anyone to be sad.
The fact that conservatives love hurting liberals is truly demented. Back in February, Senior Trump campaign adviser KimberlyGuilfoyle told the crowd at Conservative Political Action Conference (CPA) that she just loves being mean to liberals.
“Because the skyrocketing taxes, open borders, sanctuary cities and states that provide a safe haven for criminals, more crime and deadly drugs, stagnant wages and less job opportunities, and the destruction of America’s healthcare system. Nicole James is a lifelong Democrat and political activist who first cut her teeth as a teenager volunteering for Mike Davis’ presidential campaign.
She holds her Bachelor’s from Boston College and her Master’s from Columbia University, both in Economics. When not working as a writer, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her three college-aged children.
Still, Guilfoyle denied the accusations even then, telling HuffPost through her lawyer that the claims were “utterly baseless” and brought forth by “disgruntled and self-interested employees.” As early investigations into Guilfoyle ’s sexual misconduct were underway, the Fox host reportedly offered her assistant hush money and other incentives to keep quiet, including some percentage of Guilfoyle ’s speaking fees, a source confirmed to The New Yorker.
Guilfoyle denied the allegations, stating she has “never engaged in any workplace misconduct of any kind,” and adding that throughout her career she has “served as a mentor to countless women, with many of whom I remain exceptionally close to this day.” This was a moment that needed a gesture like George W. Bush’s megaphone on the rubble in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, advisers mused with Biden, and Trump was whiffing it.
“I often think about the fact that Trump had at his disposal such tremendous resources, the power of the United States federal government and all the scientists who work at those agencies is immense,” Feldman said, adding the Biden camp wasn’t privy to all of it. Biden is mired in his basement, speaking to us remotely, like an astronaut beaming back to earth from the International Space Station,” they wrote.
They felt dismissed and belittled by pundits and media elites whom the campaign believed favored Elizabeth Warren or Pete Buttigieg. Adding insult, the Times created an online feature, entitled “Advice for the Biden campaign,” soliciting wisdom for the presumptive nominee.
Some Biden aides were frustrated by what they felt was a slow pace of adding staff and ramping up the digital operation as they moved into the general election. As Stephen saw it, there was no set budget, poor communication between departments, and an unwieldy management structure.
He also made the painful decision to cut the TV budget, one of the few discretionary funding sources he could scale back. In early July, Abelson contacted Republican strategist and former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove.
Big givers saw it as a dumping ground for ex-White House officials like former press secretary-turned-“Dancing with the Stars” contestant Sean Spicer. Activity, the architect of the 2004 Swift Boat Veterans for Truth takedown of John Kerry, signed on.
Organizers had also spoken with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who had been eager for an alternative super PAC to emerge, though the talks quickly stalled and major donors would have strongly objected to his appointment. Word of the nascent super PAC encouraged Trump advisers, who were longing for air cover.
It didn’t help that Trump had antagonized Abelson during an early August phone call in which he falsely accused the mega donor of not doing enough to help him, possibly delaying matters further. The outfit, Preserve America, would finally get off the ground in early September with millions of dollars in funding from Abelson and Marcus.
The Trump team’s summer blackout may have been costly: Exit polls showed that more than 70 percent of voters decided on whom to vote for before September. As they struggled to address the cash woes, Trump’s advisers had another headache: Guilfoyle, the campaign’s fundraising chair.
Republican Party and campaign officials were convinced that Guilfoyle ’s team, which was beset by infighting and departures, was vastly underperforming. There was anger over their abrupt cancellation of a late September virtual fundraiser with the president that was supposed to rake in as much as $15 million just ahead of the third quarter deadline.
Appearing together at fundraisers, Guilfoyle and her boyfriend, Donald Trump Jr., would banter in sexually suggestive ways that made some donors uncomfortable. During a December donor event at Trump Hotel in Washington, Guilfoyle offered to give a lap dance to whoever raised the most money, according to two people who were present and another person who was familiar with the episode.
And at an event in Jackson Hole, Wyo., earlier this year, Guilfoyle and the younger Trump joked about how she raised money while in hot tubs. Another attendee presented a slightly different version, saying that whoever in the audience raised the most money would be offered a hot tub party with Guilfoyle.
And at a fall 2018 fundraiser headlined by country star Toby Keith, Guilfoyle cracked that her boyfriend liked it when she dressed up as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, according to an attendee. Guilfoyle ’s team has pushed back on assertions they weren’t taking their jobs seriously enough or raising enough money, pointing to a series of high-dollar events it had pulled off.
He was regularly blown away in the money chase by Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren and especially Bernie Sanders. With billionaire Mike Bloomberg having entered the race as a well-funded moderate alternative, donors were threatening to bail before Biden reached his supposed South Carolina firewall.
Other key sections of the New Yorker story include Guilfoyle reportedly attempting to “buy off” the assistant, her role in defending former Fox News boss Roger Miles amid former Fox host Gretchen Carlson's lawsuit, and Mayer writing, “As I reported on this story, associates of Guilfoyle ’s contacted me, offering personal details about the assistant, evidently in hopes of damaging her credibility and leading me not to publish this report.” Citing two “well-informed sources,” the New Yorker's Jane Mayer reported that the assistant wrote a 42-page complaint regarding Guilfoyle's inappropriate behavior, but it was never filed in court and is covered by a nondisclosure agreement following the large settlement.
