In 2016 — before Donald Trump was president, before Donald Trump Jr. was her boyfriend, before she became the glamorously unhinged face of the Republican party’s outreach attempts to female voters — Kimberly Guilfoyle made a bet.

She bet on Roger Ailes.

While Gretchen Carlson, Guilfoyle’s Fox News colleague, was suing Ailes for sexual harassment, Guilfoyle was doing everything she could to cast doubts on Carlson’s credibility. She gave PR-flavored interviews to Adweek and Breitbart. She criticized Carlson and vouched for Ailes as “a champion of women.” According to a complaint filed by Julie Roginsky, a former Fox contributor, Guilfoyle tried to recruit other employees to support Ailes as well — a moment dramatized in the 2019 film “Bombshell,” complete with Guilfoyle (portrayed by actress Bree Condon) handing out “Team Roger” T-shirts.

Opinion | Will Mormon Women Sink Trump in Arizona?

In 2016, Latter-day Saints antipathy and skepticism toward Mr. Trump gave an opening for both Evan McMullin and Gary Johnson, third-party candidates, to grab votes that would typically have gone to the Republican nominee. Sure, Mr. Trump won Utah — but with a meager 45 percent of the vote. Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon well-regarded by fellow members of the church, carried it in 2012 with over 70 percent.

Mr. Romney himself is a key to how a lot of church voters, especially women, view Mr. Trump. The resounding refrain that anyone who has ever talked to a female Mormon voter, or a female Mormon relative, has heard about Romney is that he is “such a good man.”

Mr. Romney has said he will not vote for Mr. Trump. Jeff Flake, the former Arizona senator and a fellow Mormon, has endorsed Mr. Biden.

It’s not just prominent Mormons like them

Mysterious ‘Biden Beauty’ Brand Wants You to ‘Beat Your Face’ and ‘Beat Trump’

A newly launched beauty brand is on a mission to increase voter turnout and get Donald Trump out of the White House.

On Wednesday, an anonymous industry insider rolled out Beauty Biden, which is described as “the most influential influencer beauty brand of the year.” Though the brand was not created by the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris campaign, all sales proceeds will reportedly go toward the Biden Victory Fund.

As of now, Beauty Biden is selling a blue beauty blender for $20.20, as well as a range of merch, including a pullover hoodie, a tote bag, an assortment of pins and stickers. Additional products are expected to drop in the upcoming weeks.

An anonymous spokesperson for Biden Beauty spoke to Fashionista about the public’s response as well as the brand’s over goal.

“We hope this brings interest to the Biden/Harris campaign and brings some inspiration into the voting process,” the spokesperson

Trump needs to do better with women. Even Republicans say his debate performance failed to do that

President Donald Trump took four years of personal venom and outright lies and stuffed it all into 90 minutes of chaotic sparring with former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday night — a performance that, for all its sound and fury, even his allies said afterward was unlikely to change the dynamic of a contest that polls show he is losing.

One of the biggest issues Trump has faced in the polls: a large gender gap.

“The main thing keeping an anvil on Trump’s head in terms of job approval all this four years has been women. He does fine among men, but women have never given him high marks,” said Scott Jennings, a longtime adviser to Senate Majority Leader

Trump interrupting Biden shows what women deal with in work meetings

  • President Donald Trump interrupted former Vice President Joe Biden at least 128 times in 90 minutes in the first 2020 presidential debate, according to Slate.
  • The exchanges were hard to watch, especially for women, many of whom have experience being interrupted by men.
  • A 2014 study by George Washington University found that men interrupted women 33% more than they did men, and other studies have found similar patterns.
  • One researcher wrote that the gendered dynamics of speaking are a show of power.

The first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden was widely regarded as a train wreck. One major reason: Trump wouldn’t let Biden speak, interrupting him at least 128 times in the 90 minutes, per Slate. 

In one instance, Trump interrupted Biden 10 times as the democratic

Is Donald Trump leading America toward a Belarusian model presidency? (opinion)

The very foundations of America’s legitimacy on the world stage could eventually rest, at least in part, on the question of just how many other countries would even recognize a president who failed to win a clear mandate of the American electorate, and whose victory was based less on a true electoral mandate than on some form of judicial or legal manipulation. This scenario would not be unlike the situation of any number of foreign leaders of questionable legitimacy who have rumbled into office and retained their power on the strength of brute force or simply hubris.

Biden Opens 23-Point Lead Over Trump Among Women in Pennsylvania | America 2020

A Washington Post-ABC poll released Tuesday morning, the day of the first debate between Trump and Democratic for Joe Biden, shows the president trailing Biden among female voters by 23 percentage points, an almost insurmountable gender gap for the president as he struggles to win the battleground state.

The poll shows Biden ahead, 54% to 44%, among registered voters and up 54% to 45% among likely voters, the latter statistic being more relevant with just five weeks to go before Election day. That deficit is largely due to Biden’s 61%-38% advantage among female voters.

Trump is favored by men, 53% of whom prefer the president and 46% of whom plan to vote for Biden. Not only does Trump’s lead among men not erase his disadvantage among female voters, but women are a majority of voters. In 2016, 53% of Pennsylvania voters were women, according to exit polls – and they

Donald Trump reportedly spent $70K to style his hair during ‘The Apprentice.’ How does that compare to other stars?

Donald Trump’s tax returns are the talk of the internet today — and one expense in particular that he wrote off has been heavily commented upon: the more than $70,000 he paid on haircuts and hairstyling for his infamous head of hair while making The Apprentice.

While there are still a lot of unknowns about the expense in the returns, unearthed by the New York Times in its bombshell report on Sunday, it still seems like a hefty tab for what he’s working with. Even if the $70,000 was over the duration of the series — and, for the sake of argument, we’ll include The Apprentice (2004-2010) and Celebrity Apprentice (2008-2015) — he spent $6,363 a year to style his hair for professional appearances.

And that amount would be in addition to the hairstyling services
