Trump Called Kimberly Guilfoyle After Her Roaring RNC Speech, Compared Her to Eva Perón

THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

After Kimberly Guilfoyle's RNC speech became a target of memes and talk-show mockery, sources confirm President Trump called her and said, “That was fantastic…so amazing.”

Published Aug. 30, 2020 4:15PM ET


CNN personalities were flabbergasted by it, with correspondent Dana Bash remarking, “Oh, my goodness. I just feel like that was so intense, and so dark.” Late Show host Stephen Colbert mocked the pretaped address as a series of “very nuanced screams.”


............................

Minutes after her speech aired on Monday evening, President Donald Trump called Guilfoyle, to effusively praise her for the address he’d just watch on TV, comparing her to Eva “Evita” Perón, according to two people familiar with the phone conversation.

Perón, a former first lady of Argentina, is also the subject of the famous Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Evita, of which Trump has long been a huge fan and has seen multiple times on stage.

“That was fantastic…so amazing,” Trump said on the Monday night call. “So much energy…so much passion.” According to these sources, the president added that “nobody could have done that but you,” calling her “my Kimberly.” He told her that hers was one of the “greatest” speeches he’d ever seen.

Guilfoyle’s Monday night speech stuck with the president throughout the week. He continued to privately rave about it days after its initial airing, going around telling various people in the West Wing how “terrific” it was and that it was one of his favorites from the convention........................................

1. I think a reference to Eva Peron

was exactly what Guilfoyle intended, especially with the arms thrown up and out at the end. Don't cry for me, Charlottesville.

2. Auditioning for role of FLOTUS for when Biff snags the 2024 Republican nomination?



Edited to add: I threw up a little in my mouth writing that. But I'm sure that's what they're plotting.

4. That's 100% what they are plotting.

They fancy themselves America's Royal Family.

3. She's too old for him, or I'd warn Donnie Jr to watch out.

Only Trump would think "Eva Peron" is a compliment.

5. I like that musical, too, but

I don't think of Evita as a role model.

6. I bet she is much more scary in private than she was at the RNC convention

9. In Donny's world that's a compliment, because she was really famous

and got a hit musical made of her life.

10. It was amazing, but more comparable to Roseanne Barr singing the anthem.
