Kimberly Guilfoyle Humiliated the Trump Campaign by Offering a Lap Dance to the Highest Donor
Yes, this actually happened. This is the real world. You’re not in a Borat film, this is not some weird dream. We are getting rid of the single most awful group of people to ever gather in governing this country.
The finger-pointing inside the Trump stable of advisers and consultants is getting very ugly. Apparently, behind the scenes, at big-money fundraisers, some of the activities did more to turn off Trump supporters than turn them on, or the other way around, depending upon who we might be talking about. Now, some Trump staffers are talking about it and complaining about how it all happened.
From a report in Politico:
“Senior campaign and GOP officials vented that Trump’s finance team, led by former Fox TV host and Donald Trump Jr. girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, underperformed and was an HR nightmare,

Who could possibly have believed that handing the campaign finance job to an unproven, unstable, and clearly out of her mind, mistress of the idiot son was a bad idea? No wonder these people couldn’t govern the country or win an election.
“Trump couldn’t compete with Biden’s small-dollar fundraising machine, and some donors were horrified by what they described as Guilfoyle’s lack of professionalism: She frequently joked about her sex life and, at one fundraiser, offered a lap dance to the donor who gave the most money.”
This would all be genuinely hilarious, and the lap dance thing might work to raise money in certain situations that are more conducive to truly awful behavior, juvenile, amateur, and shameless behavior – it can work, but not at this level.
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.
Absolutely no one has trouble believing that Kimberly Guilfoyle has spent a great deal of time raising money barely clothed or offering special favors to people willing to bid a lot of money. What is shocking is that a lot of this behavior occurred early on in the campaign – not in the last weeks – and it never once occurred to them to fire her, or at least it never occurred to Donald Trump.
It goes to show two things:
One, Trump is still an adolescent boy at heart who thinks the idea of a hot tub lap dance with a curvy ex-Fox reporter is a great way to raise money.
Two, it proves that these people care about loyalty above competence, always. There is no other explanation. They wanted someone in that job, the one overseeing the money, to be part of the “family” and you all know what we mean. Interestingly, we’re still talking about a mistress and one that could lose some interest once this is all less fun … and she was trusted with the money?
Jesus, these people.
