Donald Trump Jr. gets Vanessa Trump’s help in defending Kimberly Guilfoyle over ‘racist’ column
Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter Wednesday to defend the honor of his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle after a columnist said the Fox News host would have better luck “picking grapes” than men and should be fired because her journalistic integrity is compromised by her romance with the president’s oldest son.

Fuming against liberal hypocrisy, Trump Jr. tweeted a link to an article from Breitbart headlined: “Daily News Writer Tells Puerto Rican Kimberly Guilfoyle to ‘Pick Grapes’”
The column stirring all this outrage was written by “far-left” New York Daily News writer Linda Stasi, Breitbart said.
In the column, Stasi said the co-host of the show “The Five” should be fired because “she can’t report on the most powerful family in the country while dating one of them.”
In an original version of her column, Stasi also noted that Guilfoyle “is an otherwise brilliant woman.” But when it comes to her poor taste in men Stasi wrote, “she’d probably have better odds picking grapes,” according to The Hill.

Like the Breitbart piece, Trump Jr. took the “picking grapes” line to be slam against Guilfoyle’s Puerto Rican heritage. The former San Francisco prosecutor and ex-wife of former Mayor Gavin Newsom was born in San Francisco to a Puerto Rican mother and Irish father.
In his tweet, Trump Jr. asked: “How did this get past her editors at the @NYDailyNews? Or do they condone this kind of talk? I guess hypocrisy, sexism & racist rhetoric are alive & well there.”
