‘The Lincoln Project’ Master-Trolls Kimberly Guilfoyle Over RNC Debacle

The first night of the Republican National Convention (RNC), which began on Monday, included a pre-recorded speech from former Fox News anchor and current Trump Jr. girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, who was shouting at the top of her lungs. The content of the speech didn’t exactly make up for the shouting — she delivered pseudoapocalyptic screeds against the Democrats, who she claimed “want to destroy this country and everything we have fought for and hold dear,” “want to control what you see and think and believe so that they can control how you live,” and “want to enslave you to the weak, dependent, liberal victim ideology to the point that you will not recognize this country or yourself,” all of which is just totally kooky. The anti-Trump Republican group known as The Lincoln Project posted a video mocking Guilfoyle’s spectacle on the day after it was broadcast.

In the video, some of the most bizarrely outlandish parts of her speech are paired with superimposed imagery suggesting that some portal to hell (or something) was opening up. Dark clouds, lightning strikes, and flames have been photoshopped into the clip — check it out below. It may have been originally put together by someone else, since it does not include Lincoln Project branding in the actual content.

The group also posted a montage of some of the most outrageous fearmongering from the speakers at the RNC’s first night. In context, it’s absolutely ridiculous — Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, for instance, claimed that Democrats “will disarm you, lock you in your home, and invite MS-13 to live next door.” Does he actually believe that? Does he even take himself seriously? That claim is absolutely ridiculous. It’s a lie-riddled hodgepodge of conservative paranoia. In their caption, The Lincoln Project called the montage of remarks “Trump’s America in 75 seconds,” pointing out that many of the terrible things that the GOP has been pointing to as supposed possible consequences of a Biden presidency are literally happening right this minute under Trump.

The first night of speeches was chock-full of lies. CNN called the proceedings “a parade of dishonesty.”
