Former Fox News host and Trump campaign adviser Kimberly Guilfoyle was paid a whopping $60,000 for her two-and-a-half minute speech on the Ellipse on Jan. 6, just before the crowd attacked the U.S. Capitol, according to the House select committee investigating that day.
That’s $400 per second if we’re doing the math.
But more importantly than the eye-popping sum, the money came from former President Donald Trump‘s “official election defense fund” — a fund the committee alleges did not exist.
It’s not a good look for Guilfoyle, who is also engaged to Trump’s eldest son, Don Jr. The optics are so bad, even Trump supporters appear to be turning on her.

CNN’s Jake Tapper said in an interview with Rep. Zoe Lofgren following Monday’s committee hearing that “there was almost a through-line that you and the committee members thought that some of Trump’s supporters are victims of this, even some of those who got swept up on Jan. 6.”
Trump raised over $250 million from supporters by fundraising on the Big Lie that he’d won the election, some of which we now know went to paying Guilfoyle to address the soon-to-be violent crowd on Jan. 6.
“That they got grifted by this fundraising appeal that was going out several times a day to raise money for battles in courts that didn’t happen, and also you showed people deceived, talking about why they were there on Jan. 6,” Tapper said.

“Well, people were conned by the former president,” Lofgren responded. “They were conned into believing that the election had been stolen and that they should go to the Capitol, as the president asked them to. I think the average donation from those email — false email requests was something like $17. These were people that weren’t rich people. They were conned by the president whose was a Big Lie was also a Big Rip-Off.”
“Guilfoyle was paid for the introduction she gave at the speech on Jan. 6. She received compensation for that,” she added.
New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman revealed on CNN that Guilfoyle’s bloated speaking fee isn’t playing well among some in Trumpland.
“People in Trump world are sharing that clip, they are aghast that this is the amount of money she got for a speech to introduce her boyfriend,” she said. “They couldn’t really get over — I had one former adviser say to me, essentially, these were folks raising money in small amounts from retirees telling them this was going to some legal fight that didn’t really happen, and instead Kimberly Guilfoyle is getting paid.”
She should use it to get her face fixed.
This is nasty I know but, she’s as beasty as her looney speech and her brain dead attraction to trump scum!
there is not enough money in the world to fix that train wreck
Guillfoyle looks like a crap made by Sarah Huckabee. Or maybe it’s the reverse.
To my fellow gays: Sadly, I believe we’re about to face our toughest fight ever. There is a strong chance GOP/GQP will retake Congress and in 2024, the presidency. I love most of what Biden has done but he’s slowing down and seems a little lost at times (not as bad as failing Diane Feinstein though). We will need someone stronger, more bold, and more aggressive. I see no one currently among the Dem ranks who could fill the office except maybe Gavin Newsom. I think he’d be a great president and has the knowledge and smarts to pull it off.
I’ve not written this to tell anyone to vote if Newsom runs for 2024 – simply to say we’ve got to put pressure on Dem Conress to get their shi* together to start vetting candidates. I know Biden’s said he’d likely run again but he’ll be almost 84 when the time comes and I don’t think he’ll be mentally and likely physically up to it.
My fear, shared with many is we will lose everything we’ve worked for, for decades and possibly never regain them. I believe if GOP wins 2022 and 2024, we can say goodbye to democracy in our lifetimes…for maybe the next 10 – 15 years as we know GOP will rig elections, install their own vote counters and continue to install far right judges on the Supreme Court.
Just venting but I urge you all to share the concerns and contact your congressional representatives as well as city and state politicians as well.
Sending everyone HAPPY PRIDE and let’s keep the spirit going eternally, not just during Pride month. Be kind to each other. Love each other. And let’s get ready to politically fight with the GOP enemy.
To a point I agree with you but we have an election right now (or very near future) which we still need the Democrats in Congress. If we let the GQP gain control of the State governments they will pass more laws which will make it harder to vote and easier for them to change the votes. These primaries and November General elections are just as important as a Presidential one.
Completely agree and have been thinking the same, to include Gavin Newsom. It also bothers me greatly that the Dems reportedly are planning to run on kitchen table issues in the mid-terms (e.g., inflation). Certainly those are important and must be addressed, but our democracy also is very endangered and should alarm every voter, regardless of those other issues. In short, we’re on the cusp of very dark days.
we really do need to install term limits in Congress, eliminate lobbyists, and corporate-level donations that drive self-interest policies.
it is really worrisome that Dems do not seem aggressive enough or unified in their messaging. their voice lacks more power as well. where is the 2024 Democratic figurehead that will elevate the party? that person should be making noise now, to garner excitement and support.
Sadly I think you are right. I think this country will fall into the hands of dictators and become a tool of the Christian Taliban, I assume there will be some sort of cull of the population and concentration camps and prisons will replace universities. Homosexual and transgendered people will be gathered up and be exterminated. Public executions will be a thing again.
This could very well be the beginning of the end.
Junior must really be drugged up to actually spend time with this ugly woman. She needs a botox refresh STET.
Another moose knuckle of a beast, Donny Jr sucks her C!@#$%K!!!
Stormy Daniels got $150k for sleeping with daddy once. This hag is worth much less.
Another ugly skank
We all knew she was a whore and this just proves it.
tick tick tick. now that the cat is out of the bag i dont see a lot of good in her and baby trumps future. more lawyers and court dates, threats for jail, perhaps people even spitting on her when she takes that wig the size of a VW on a walk down the street.
by the way, her “hair” is so massive it looks like it needs to take its own SHIT!
Is it me or does her pic in this article look like a haggard drag queen at 3am who has had too much coke? Maybe it’s just me seeing truth.
Kimberly Guilfoyle reminds me of Truman Capote’s comment about Jacqueline Susann: She looks like a truck driver in drag.
oh and the steaks? SHE WOULDNT FEED THEM TO THE RACCOONS IN HER BACKYARD.
