On some of his own campus appearances, Kirk was accused of having been more interested in supporting Israel than putting America first. He has called his critics conspirators and racists.
Kirk appeared alongside Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle on Sunday, but said nothing The pro-Trump movement was infected with a "fake conservatism," and the president himself was at the mercy of a group of state employees who did not do him many things to do something he spoke up for.
The couple, who called themselves Joe and Orion Miles, said, "It was an absolute disaster for them. We wanted to ask questions about immigration and Christianity, but they did not want to ask themselves these questions.
