California’s Democratic governor claimed his ex-wife changed after she began working for Fox News years ago, prompting her quick denial.
Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) made his remarks to David Axelrod during the February 9 episode of “The Axe Files With David Axelrod” podcast.
Kimberly Guilfoyle moved to New York City in 2004 and eventually took a job at Fox, where she became “different,” Newsom remarked.
“She was a different person,” he claimed, noting his ex-wife worked for a progressive district attorney when living in California with him. “We were close with [now-Vice President Kamala Harris], she knew her well, and she was spending a lot of time in Democratic circles.”
The California Democrat told Axelrod that Guilfoyle moved to the East Coast for a job at Court TV when he was elected mayor of San Francisco. She eventually left Court TV to work for the country’s most-watched network.
“She fell prey, I think, to the culture at Fox in a deep way,” Newsom opined to the Democratic Party strategist.
The marriage between the two lasted from 2001 to 2006, so she should know Newsom better than most people.
She lamented during an interview with Charlie Kirk that Newsom was once someone who worked to improve the lives of his constituents.
“He used to be so proud to fight for small businesses, for entrepreneurs, for those hardworking men and women, and he’s fallen prey to the left, the radical left that is pushing him so far to the left that it’s unrecognizable.”
Kirk asked Guilfoyle if she thinks her former husband will run for president to which she replied he will, no doubt.
“I know he’s gonna run for president,” she said. “He’s always wanted to be president of the United States. … This is something that he wants very badly.”
She predicted her future father-in-law, former President Donald Trump, will face her ex-husband in the 2024 general election.
Guilfoyle rejected Newsom’s notion she was changed by her employment at Fox News, noting she has been a registered Republican since she was old enough to vote.
“Have you ever seen me to be someone that is led by others?” she asked the Turning Point USA founder.
Newsom’s ex-wife added she first registered as a Republican at 18 and was a member of the Young Republicans while matriculating at the University of California-Davis.
“Gavin knows this,” she said. “I didn’t change. He did.”
