Vanessa Trump Defends Donald Trump Jr. and His New Girlfriend As People Call For Her to Be Canned

A writer for the New York Daily News published a piece calling for Fox News to fire Kimberly Guilfoyle, host of 'The Five' and political commentator. Guilfoyle's crime? She is dating Donald Trump Jr., who the Daily News writer apparently can't stand. Vanessa Trump has jumped in to slam those jumping on the 'fire Guilfoyle' bandwagon.

Vanessa has remained largely away from the limelight since her split from Donald Trump Jr. happened about 9 months ago. She jumped into the Twitter fray this week to defend her ex-husband's new girlfriend.

"The lengths people will go to attack a woman simply because she’s dating Don. We’ve been separated for over 9 months and respect each other’s decisions & privacy. We’ll focus on raising our great kids. Would be nice if the press did the same rather than obsess over our pvt lives!" wrote Vanessa.

The calls for Guilfoyle to be fired came after it was suggested by author and News columnist Linda Stasi. Stasi spent more time in the column criticizing Trump, and even calls Guilfoyle 'brilliant', but says the Fox personality should be fired because she can no longer remain neutral.

“Now that Kimberly Guilfoyle is reportedly having sleepovers with Donald Trump Jr., the Fredo Corleone of the Trump boys, while she’s reporting on him, his father, his father’s sex scandals, and the Mueller investigation, what Fox News — that fair and balanced network — should do is bust her down to courtroom reporter. Or fire her,” Stasi wrote in her original piece.

Stasi seems to have the same problem that many people have these days: she doesn't understand the difference between journalism and commentary. People who make political commentary do not have to be neutral; the whole point is that they're sought after for their opinions.

Journalists are the ones who are supposed to remain objective-- but even that is rare these days.

Stasi writes biased opinion pieces for a news outlet, so you would think she understood the difference between commenter and journalist.

Guilfoyle, a 49-year-old former beauty queen and district attorney, had ties to the Trump family since at least the election. The conservative has been a huge Trump supporter, and was even one of the names floated as a possible pick for Trump’s press secretary.

Stasi suggested that the Latina woman would be 'better off picking grapes' than 'picking men'. The author was quickly slammed for this due to Guilfoyle's heritage, and was accused of making a racist slur.

"Absolutely no idea that Kimberly Guilfoyle is half Puerto Rican... I'm just surprised anyone would have assumed such a stereotype b/c someone is half-Latina. So sorry for misunderstanding," she wrote on Twitter, and deleted that line in the original article.

Many people said it reminded them of two weeks ago Roseanne Barr compared Valerie Jarrett to an ape and said she didn't realize the Obama advisor was black. They called it a flimsy excuse.

Guilfoyle and Don Jr. began dating about two months after he and Vanessa announced their divorce. The two kept the relationship under wraps at first but began to be seen around town a bit more. Us Weekly confirmed the relationship in May.
