Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Fox News Host Confirms She’s in Talks with Trump Administration About Press Secretary Job

Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle confirmed she is in talks with the White House to potentially replace press secretary Sean Spicer.

Guilfoyle, a co-host on the Fox News show The Five, told the San Jose Mercury News Tuesday that the idea of working as White House press secretary has been “raised by a number of people” in the Trump administration.

She said it would be an honor to serve in the administration.

“I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country,” Guilfoyle said. “I think it’d be a fascinating job, it’s a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position.”

Guilfoyle was one of the original contenders to become press secretary during the presidential transition but lost out to Sean Spicer, the former Republican National Committee spokesperson.

Rumors have circulated that Spicer is on the outs after a White House communications meltdown in explaining President Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

“This is probably the most egregious example of press and communications incompetence since we’ve been here,” one White House official told the Washington Post. “And the president watched it unfold firsthand. He could see it.”

“President Trump definitely views the Comey firing as a communication failure. This all revolves around what happened over the past week,” added Republican strategist Ford O’Connell.

Spicer, who was on Naval Resever duty last week and not at the White House after Comey’s dismissal, has been criticized by reporters frequently for being an inadequate press secretary.

Guilfoyle said Spicer is “a very nice man and a patriot” adding that he’s in a “very tough position.” But she acknowledged that there was room for improvement in the Trump administration’s communications strategy.

“If you want to be successful and do communications with President Trump, you have to be someone who he actually wants to spend a little bit of time with,” Guilfoyle said last week. “You’ve got to insist on getting in front of POTUS, talk to him, and have like five, six minutes with him before you go out there and take the podium, and otherwise you’re driving blind.”

“It has to be somebody with a very close relationship, where there’s trust there, there’s inherent loyalty, someone who’s been there from the beginning,” she said.

Guilfolye says she has known the president for around 10 years.

If Guilfoyle is chosen to replace Spicer, she would be the third Fox news personality to leave the network to work in the Trump administration in as many months.

Former Fox & Friends co-host Heather Nauert left the network in April to serve as the State Department’s new spokesperson.

In February, Jonathan Wachtel, a producer for Fox News Channel’s United Nation’s bureau, moved to the State Department to serve as spokesman for the U.S. mission to the U.N.
