Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News personality who served as a Trump adviser and who is now engaged to Donald Trump Jr., has joined the chorus of violent rhetoric coming from the right in response to the former president’s indictment.
Ms. Guilfoyle, who is renowned for her bombastic presentation style, is frequently one of Donald Trump’s most ardent fans.
Ms. Guilfoyle didn’t hold back following the former president’s indictment on 37 counts related to the cache of sensitive materials he kept after leaving office and failed to give over to the federal government.
On Instagram, she posted a picture of Mr Trump at his arraignment in New York after his first indictment with the ominous words: “Retribution is coming.”
She captioned the picture: “The compromised DOJ and the corrupt FBI will not stop President Trump from Making America GREAT once Again! 🇺🇸”
Another picture of the former president is included in the post and shows him dramatically pointing toward the camera with text reading: “In reality they’re not after me they’re after you,” followed by: “I’m just in the way.”
Kari Lake, the GOP candidate and election skeptic who lost the 2022 Arizona governor’s race, is one of the several right-wing figures voicing threats in response to Mr. Trump’s indictment.
She sent a fiery message to the Biden administration on Friday, saying that anyone trying to take down Mr. Trump would have to go through her and all 75 million people who voted for him in the 2020 election.
The most infamous incident during Ms. Guilfoyle’s tenure as President Trump’s advisor occurred at the 2020 Republican National Convention when she delivered a recorded address that was widely mocked for crescendoing in which she yelled, “The best is yet to come!” with arms spread.
She criticized the Democratic-led California government for a significant portion of her address, which is noteworthy given that she was previously married to Gavin Newsom, the state’s current governor and former mayor of San Francisco.
