It’s been an eventful few days for right-wing royalty Kimberly Guilfoyle and Donald Trump Jr. On Friday, the couple seemingly revealed that they were engaged—then days later, it was reported that, actually, the spawn of satan had gotten down on one knee a year ago but for some reason the duo had decided to keep it a secret. On Monday, we learned that Don Jr. (along with his sister Ivanka) had been subpoenaed by the New York attorney general, and were apparently refusing to comply with the order. And as the anniversary of the violent attack on the Capitol approaches, we’re reminded of the ProPublica report from last fall wherein text messages sent by Guilfoyle about the January 6 rally that preceded the deadly Capitol attack suggested Team Trump was even more intimately involved with the planning of “Stop the Steal” than previously thought. Best wishes to the happy couple?
Guilfoyle’s boasts of the millions she brought in reportedly came amid complaints that she wasn’t going to be allowed to speak on stage at the rally. According to ProPublica, Pierson says that the president personally set the speaker lineup and that there was nothing she could do about it. Guilfoyle reportedly responded that she just wanted to introduce Don Jr., noting that she had “raised so much money for this.… Literally one of my donors Julie at 3 million.” Guilfoyle was apparently referring to Julie Jenkins Fancelli, a Publix supermarket heir who Guilfoyle had cultivated a professional relationship with during the campaign, according to ProPublica.
