“The Daily Show With Trevor Noah” simply reacted to the speech by retweeting a random series of all-caps numbers and letters from Lady Gaga. And Broadway star Bette Miller sarcastically wondered if Donald Trump Jr. later appeared to be crying because his girlfriend yelled at him.
And several people tweeted a viral image of Guilfoyle gesturing toward the sky with her arms outstretched and mouth wide open mid-shout, which comedian ZWE wryly captioned, “Time to conquer Earth!” While actor George Take drew a visual comparison to the meme of “Sesame Street” puppet Elmo summoning infernal flames.
Others posted edited photos and collages of Guilfoyle as Repulse, the green Wicked Witch of the West, Maleficent and other nefarious characters. She was once the First Lady of San Francisco, married to California’s Democratic Mayor Gavin Newsome.
She spent a 12-year stint on Fox News and while with the channel, began dating Donald Trump Jr. She is now one of the campaign’s most important surrogate. Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images of that media training, however, didn’t come across during her Monday night speech.
Singer Bette Miller tweeted, KimberlyGuilfoyle knows her future father-in-law loves all caps, so that’s how she did her speech. George Take also weighed in, comparing Guilfoyle ’s speech to the much more subdued one delivered by Nikki Haley.
While many noted that Guilfoyle ’s speech was tailor made for Saturday Night Live, political pundit Amanda Carpenter felt the actors had their work cut out for them. The Views Sunny Hosting was enraged that Guilfoyle referred to herself as an immigrant, even though she was born in Puerto Rico.
Gavin Newsom declined to speak ill of ex-wife KimberlyGuilfoyle after she called out the state for its handling of current drug and homelessness crises during her Republican National Convention address. Newsom, a Democrat who was married to the former Fox News host from 2001 to 2006, was taking questions from reporters Wednesday when he was asked, “I’m curious if you are watching the RNC, and if you had a response to your ex-wife who said in prime time … that California is ‘a land of discarded heroin needles in parks, riots in streets and blackouts in homes.
“Let me just extend appreciation for your effort to get my response and I respectfully defer to the next question,” Newsom said before moving to another reporter. The former couple, dubbed “the New Kennedy's” in a 2004 Harper’s Bazaar spread, remained friendly after their split despite their political differences.

Guilfoyle did not mention Newsom by name during her 2020 RNC remarks Monday night, but she pulled no punches when discussing her home state.
It is a place of immense wealth, immeasurable innovation, and immaculate environment, and the Democrats turned it into a land of discarded heroin needles in parks, riots in streets, and blackouts in homes. Guilfoyle, who is the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., spoke from the Mellon Auditorium during the 2020 Republican National Convention.
Since seeing footage of the speech, stars have been taking to Twitter to share mostly confused and bewildered comments. Bette Miller joked that Guilfoyle delivered her speech in “all caps” to make her father-in-law happy.
Country singer Main Morris thought that the speech was a skit from “Saturday Night Live”. The 51-year-old former attorney, who is the National Chair of Trump Victory Finance Committee, spoke from the Mellon Auditorium on Monday night (August 24) in Washington, D.C.
Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Show MoreS how Less Guilfoyle, the finance chair of the Trump Victory Committee, was the only speaker Monday night who broke into a feral scream at times despite having no live audience present. 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.
Cut to an especially dark excerpt from Guilfoyle's speech, in which she called California “a land of discarded heroin needles in parks, riots in streets and blackouts in homes.” “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah” simply reacted to the speech by retweeting a random series of all-caps numbers and letters from Lady Gaga.

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.
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. 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.
