Guilfoyle has been dating Donald Trump Jr. since April 2018 and is a fundraiser for President Donald Trump‘s campaign, Town & Country reported. She was previously married to Gavin Newsom, including during the first two years that he was mayor of San Francisco before he became governor of California. When they separated, they said it was because it was hard to maintain a relationship while living on opposite coasts. She was co-host of The Five on Fox until July 2018, the outlet reported.
Guilfoyle had to briefly stop campaigning for Trump when she tested positive for the novel coronavirus in early July, the Los Angeles Times reported. She immediately isolated after her positive test, and at the time she wasn’t showing any symptoms. She told CNN that she was asymptomatic and feeling pretty good. Two-and-a-half weeks later she was recovered and visiting with Trump, People reported.

During her speech, Guilfoyle spoke a lot about socialism and “radical” Democrats. And she frequently yelled out her speech.
“If you want to see the socialist Biden-Harris future for our country, just take a look at California. It is a place of immense wealth, immeasurable innovation, and immaculate environment, and the Democrats turned it into a land of discarded heroin needles in parks, riots in streets, and blackouts in homes,” Guilfoyle said. “In President Trump’s America, we light things up; we don’t dim them down. We build things up; we don’t burn them down. We kneel in prayer and we stand for our flag. This election is a battle for the soul of America. Your choice is clear.”

In fact, a lot of people pointed out that she was yelling at a mostly empty room. One person pointed out that with all of her TV experience, she knows how to be energetic without needing to yell.
Not quite sure why Guilfoyle is not willing/able to make the transition to an empty room.
She has a ton of TV studio experience. She should be able to energetic without yelling.

Another person pointed out that if there had been applause, it would have felt less awkward.
