Offensive tweets behind him, Donald Trump made it to California on Saturday to survey the damage caused by the wildfires. He vowed to “take care of the people who have been so badly hurt.”

The president toured the area with the state’s outgoing governor, Jerry Brown — as well as Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom, who has been trading barbs with Trump all year. But the fact that Newsom has called Trump a “joke and a racist” isn’t what the internet was hung up on during their meeting. Twitter was teeming with comments about how “awkward” it was that Trump and Newsom were together when Trump’s son Don Jr. is dating Newsom’s ex-wife, Kimberly Guilfoyle. Yes, the infamous Donberly.

In addition to the “a” word, it was also called “messy,” with another person saying Newsom was “almost a Trump family member.” (Gasp!) Here are some of the comments:









Don Jr. has been dating Guilfoyle, a former Fox News personality now working for the pro-Trump PAC America First, since earlier this year — soon after he and his wife, Vanessa, split.

Guilfoyle was married to Newsom from 2001 to 2006. In September, he was asked about his former wife dating a Trump and he told the reporter that he found it to be an “awkward” question, but ultimately said, “No, it’s fine. I wish her well, and them well. And we see the world, clearly, with a different set of eyes politically.” Guilfoyle has said they are still friendly, despite their differing politics, and enjoy regular phone calls. She even made a comment about how Newsom and Trump Jr. both wear slicked-back hair.

Of course, the real purpose of Trump’s visit to California was to survey the devastating fires. As of Saturday, the death toll for the Camp Fire and Woolsey Fire was 71, and more than 1,000 people had been reported missing. On Friday, Gerard Butler and Robin Thicke, who both lost their homes in the Woolsey Fire, took the stage at a star-studded benefit to raise money for wildfire relief.
