Kim Guilfoyle, Don Jr. Reportedly Stranded Trump Staffers In South Dakota

Shocker-not.

Kim Guilfoyle, Don Jr. Reportedly Stranded Trump Staffers In South Dakota
After Guilfoyle tested positive for COVID-19, she and the president’s son apparently took a jet back to New York, leaving staffers to fend for themselves—an incident some say is emblematic of the turmoil on her fundraising team.

Kimberly Guilfoyle may not have the Trump surname, but she certainly fits in, evidently possessing that special blend of incompetence and carelessness that’s central to the family brand. Guilfoyle, a former Fox News personality and girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., formally joined the president’s re-election bid as a senior adviser in 2019 and has been serving since February as the campaign’s national finance chair. In some respects she’s been successful, helping Donald Trump to build up a considerable war chest. But, according to Politico, she’s also overseen a money-raising operation rife with chaos, cronyism, and backstabbing.

Republicans familiar with her fundraising unit told the outlet that Guilfoyle’s staff is in a state of “upheaval,” with employees leaving and being replaced by additions with little to no relevant experience other than connections to Guilfoyle and her deputy, Sergio Gor, who has feuded with longtime fundraiser Caroline Wren. Caught between Gor and Wren, staffers have reportedly been further upset by Guilfoyle claiming credit for their work—and for apparent disregard for rank-and-file campaign workers, as evidenced by an episode earlier this month in which she and Don Jr. left junior staffers stranded in South Dakota after she tested positive for COVID-19.

The couple had originally made plans to road trip back to New York from South Dakota, where the president gave a dark and divisive speech in front of Mount Rushmore, but apparently took a private flight instead, leaving several junior campaign staffers who’d been in contact with the infected Guilfoyle behind to quarantine alone in their hotel rooms, “scared they’d get sick in a city they’d never set foot in before,” according to Politico. The incident left the staffers so shaken that they reportedly sought out campaign chief of staff Stephanie Alexander weeks later, and several last week sought a meeting with Brad Parscale, though that fell through after he took the fall for the sputtering campaign.

1. Par for the course.

Another unqualified wife/daughter/lover of the President or his spawn, getting paid to run something they have no business coming anywhere near. What could go wrong? Vector Guilfoyle. Keep up the good work. Just go ahead and take the money and run. Like Brad did.

Something to remember them by?

Didn’t Romney/Ryan cancel all the credit cards of their staff, leaving them stranded?

The last days of Romneyland
Thursday Nov 8, 2012 9:21 AM
By NBC's Garrett Haake

BOSTON -- From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.

Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

"Fiscally conservative," sighed one aide the next day.

One last time, let's reiterate: In the House of Romney, there are only two kinds of people — Romneys and The Help:

From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.

Classic.

They're all lucky they're not working in China now.

But I doubt they will. Otherwise they wouldn't be junior Trump campaign staffers.

"May I have another, Sir?" Whack!

13. I knew that bit about them driving back was pure bullshit.

With Rethugs, there's always a millionaire Rethug with a private jet looking for a prized contract somewhere that's willing to give a president's kid a ride.

Perks of the evil invisible lower crust of society.........

I wonder how many others got exposed to the virus during that little trip.

15. Yep. And, honestly, flying back in a private jet probably is a better decision

than driving back what with the need to stop for food, bathroom breaks, hotels and also Secret Service agents for Don Jr. Just own it. Say that in the interest of everyone’s health and safety Don Jr or Don Sr or the campaign was footing the bill for a private plane. They lie about so many things they don’t need to lie about.

just as easily as they claimed they were doing a road trip back to DC.
