Is Spicer Out? Fox News Star in Talks to Replace Spicer?

0

Is Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer out of a job after the ‘hiding in the bushes’ incident related to the recent firing of FBI Director Comey?

According to some reporters on Tuesday that may be true. Although some might say Trump has lost confidence in Spicer as the Press Secretary, others might disagree. It was reported today that the President was considering hiring Kimberly Guilfoyle of the Fox News Channel to his communications team.

Guilfoyle, who used to be a prosecutor in Los Angeles and San Francisco before starting her career in TV news, is now a co-host of the Fox program “The Five.” She addressed the need for changes to Trump’s communications team during a recent episode, though she didn’t mention herself as being part of it.

She did confirm she was contacted by the Trump administration and 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.”

H/T Conservative Tribune:

From even before his inauguration, the liberal media has played up reports of “chaos” within President Donald Trump’s inner circle and routinely publishes anonymously sourced reports of impending shake-ups in the various members of his White House team, foremost among them being press secretary Sean Spicer.

Following the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, The New York Times trotted out its tried-and-true story once more, this time updated to suggest that Spicer was on his way out the door, a persistent rumor they’ve pushed for months.

The self-professed “hack” journalist Glenn Thrush and Clinton camp pal, er, reporter Maggie Haberman reported that in place of Spicer — who Trump has allegedly lost confidence in — the president was considering hiring Kimberly Guilfoyle of the Fox News Channel to his communications team.

That report was seemingly backed up by one from The Associated Press — also about impending shake-ups to the Trump team — which alleged that Trump was thinking about hiring Fox News producers for the same purpose.

Now comes yet another report of future changes to Trump’s camp, this time from the California Bay Area media outlet The Mercury News, which obtained an exclusive interview with Guilfoyle herself recently at the Fox News studio in New York.

“I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country,” Guilfoyle stated when asked if she’d consider serving in the administration as press secretary. “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, who used to be a prosecutor in Los Angeles and San Francisco before starting her career in TV news, is now a co-host of the Fox program “The Five.” She addressed the need for changes to Trump’s communications team during a recent episode, though she didn’t mention herself as being part of it.

“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,” she said on “The Five” last week, as reported by the Mercury News. “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,” Guilfoyle added.

Guilfoyle has personally known Trump for more than a decade and her name was floated as a potential press secretary during Trump’s transition period after the election, prior to the announcement that Spicer had received the position.

“I think I have a very good relationship with the president,” she told the Mercury News. “I think I enjoy a very straightforward and authentic, very genuine relationship, one that’s built on trust and integrity, and I think that’s imperative for success in that position.”

Sounds to me like a quality person that could certainly do the job as Press Secretary, don’t you think so?

However, The Daily Mail on Wednesday reported a White House official it did not name as saying that the move “is a total non-starter. Not happening.”

Even a spokesperson for Fox News stated:

“Kimberly is a valued member of the Fox News prime-time lineup, and is under a long-term contract with the network.”

Sorry to disappoint you folks, but it looks like Melissa McCarthy will still have a job on “Saturday Night Live”.
