The Trump administration has had a problem with information leaking since early on in Trump’s presidency, but now that he will be on his way out of the White House, countless insiders from the past four years will be coming forward with their own behind the scenes accounts of what took place. In fact, wild stories are already starting to come out about life inside the Trump White House.
According to a report this week in Politico, former Fox TV host Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is currently the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., upset the sensibilities of many senior officials during her time with the administration.
Senior officials reportedly called her an “HR nightmare,” because she frequently joked about her sex life and in one case offered a lap dance to the donor who gave the most money to the campaign. It is not clear which donor, if any, took the offer that time, but at an event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming earlier this year, Guilfoyle and Donald Jr. joked about how she raised money while in hot tubs.
Guilfoyle is an attorney, prosecutor, and television news personality serving as an advisor to Donald Trump. She was also the First Lady of San Francisco from 2004 to 2006. She served as an Assistant District Attorney in San Francisco from 2000 to 2004. Guilfoyle married Democratic politician and future California Governor Gavin Newsom and was First Lady of San Francisco during Newsom’s first two years as mayor of that city. Guilfoyle also appeared in the 2004 film Happily Even After playing a public defender.
She worked at Fox News from 2006 to 2018 and co-hosted The Five on the network. She later joined America First Policies, a pro-Trump super PAC, to campaign for Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections.
As of early 2020, the Trump campaign was paying Guilfoyle $15,000 per month through the campaign manager’s private company, Parscale Strategy.
In the Trump 2020 campaign, Guilfoyle managed a fund-raising division. The fundraising division managed by Guilfoyle was accused of irresponsible spending and faced constant infighting.
According to numerous reports, including an investigation by The New Yorker, Guilfoyle was forced to leave her job at Fox News after she was accused of sexually harassing a female assistant. After Guilfoyle left the network, Fox News agreed to an out-of-court settlement with the victim. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but The New Yorker reported that the settlement was at least $4 million. The assistant said that Guilfoyle frequently displayed herself naked, showed her naked photographs of her male sexual partners, and required the assistant to sleep over at her apartment.
It seems that her behavior in the White House was not much different.
