Mayra Joli may have been born under the red, white and blue flag of the Dominican Republic, but there’s little doubt that she’s now a proud citizen of the American red, white and blue.
For those who were fortunate enough to watch President Trump’s NBC production of a ‘town hall meeting’ with voters in Miami, Florida, two things may have stood out to you;
- Supposedly fair and objective NBC moderator Savannah Guthrie actually asked more questions than the voters present (40-10)
- Other than POTUS making Guthrie look like the partisan tool she actually is, the other hit of the night was ‘the nodding lady in red’
Luckily for the rest of us, the good folks at the Miami Herald have uncovered the mystery woman as “Mayra Joli, an immigration attorney and pro-Trump activist…”
Joli is a Brickell-based immigration attorney and five-time beauty queen who dabbles as a pundit on Spanish-language television. She’s also a fervent Trump supporter and frequently posts about him on Facebook. Joli said Trump was the inspiration behind her 2018 congressional campaign.
“I am not looking to run because I need a paycheck, like Donald Trump. I’m not looking to run because I need fame, like Donald Trump. I’m running because I need this country to succeed,” Joli said. “Like Donald Trump, I don’t drink.”
I don’t know who the woman with the red mask is behind @realDonaldTrump but I’m becoming a huge fan of her agreement head shakes when the president answers questions.
