As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Kimberly Guilfoyle Says She is in Discussions to Become Press Secretary

Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle says she has been talking to Trump administration officials about replacing Sean Spicer as White House press secretary or assuming some other role in the press operation

According to the Mercury News, which talked to Guilfoyle:

Guilfoyle said the idea of her taking the job or another press role in the White House has been “raised by a number of people” in the Trump administration, although she declined to go into specifics. She said she’s regularly in touch with members of the administration in the course of her job.

She was originally considered for press secretary during the presidential transition, but the job went to Sean Spicer, the former spokesman for the Republican National Committee.

Now, with rumors boiling in Washington, D.C., about a broad shakeup to Trump’s press team following a drumbeat of controversies, Guilfoyle’s name has resurfaced. The New York Times reported on Friday that Trump had suggested Guilfoyle for the press secretary job in conversations with political allies.

If she joined the administration, Guilfoyle could come aboard amid other changes at the press office. In an interview with Fox News released over the weekend, Trump floated the possibility of canceling the daily press briefings and just releasing written statements, or holding a personal news conference every couple of weeks.

Suprised she is discussing it so openly. That’s not usually the way to get these things, unless they are purposely floating a trial balloon.

  1. No no no no no……

    I don’t think she has the proper demeanor, despite her knowledge and experience.

    ps… did that really say “broad” changes? oiy vey

    • Nothing wrong with her dimeanor, she always looks and acts like a lady and She is a smart young woman with a quick brain, who might keep these gossipers in line and at bay, which is all they are, not reporters anymore. I say, give her a chance, she might bring some strength and clarity to these briefings which are used by these fake news reporters for headlines, nothing else.

  2. The first thought is that she would give up a cushy, multi-million dollar job to stand in front of some snide reporters looking to make her sound foolish and a liar.
    Then – well, it’s a nice thing to add to one’s resume if later she wanted to rejoin the cable news system.

    She’s certainly got the chops and the background for it, not to mention that she is a gorgeous woman who would look really good on TV.

    • the MSM will rip her apart on her looks, trust me. She is smart, intelligent, but the MSM will not see that….I can hear it already….

  3. Ugh. I used to enjoy watching her on The Five, but I gave that show up a couple of years ago when KG and some others were all getting way too full of themselves.

    I’ve watched a few minutes of The Five here and there right before they moved into the 9 pm slot and right after. My opinion of KG was confirmed when on the show where they announced their move to prime time she boasted about how they’ve met every challenge, ratings-wise, and then exclaimed, “We’re coming for you Rachel.” While I’m certainly no fan of Rachel Maddow, KG’s obnoxious boasting made me think that she better be careful because Maddow’s ratings were right on the heels of The Five at the time, maybe about 300,000 behind. Well, ha, since then I’ve checked the ratings a few times at the TV Newser site and Maddow has been beating The Five in both the demo and overall audience. I can’t stand Maddow, but I also can’t stand how enormous KG’s ego has grown.

  4. I like her a lot…she has a take no prisoners style with a street fighter personality. She’s smart, gorgeous and survived a marriage to Gavin Newsom…she’d be great!

    • They need a PROFESSIONAL (old school Washington ‘insider’ Republican type…) to fully take charge of the Communications office.
      Where the heck has Pres. Trump’s ‘Chief-Of-Staff’ been? He needs to be on top of all of this!

  5. Guilfoyle isn’t the right person for the job (my opinion, worth about 3 cents ;+}) She’s smart, quick on her feet and all that, but the corporate media and the establishment would attack her relentlessly, get her off message, criticize her 24/7 in order to destroy her, reveal her temper and her crush her credibility. I sense at times a certain lack of maturity and thin skin in her (shows up in her tendency to react with an intemperate smart mouth before thinking about an effective response, which we see at times on The Five). The media would exploit that every time she held a presser. She’d be representing the Trump administration, and thereby automatically be the “enemy” for the WH Press Corps. Of course, they would attack any press secretary Trump appointed, so maybe she’d be as good any anyone else. Let her try it out to see how she does. Who knows? She might be great.

  6. I really think President Trump should shut these briefings down and that he should do the briefing every two weeks himself and that every day or so, he should release a statement. No matter what the democrats and Republicans will never stop their twisted lies, half-truths and stories about President Trump. Every day they don’t give a damn about the country or its people, they are desperately trying to keep Trump from helping Americans with their slander and lies and stories, fake news with the media who is now like the old Russian media, controlled by Clintons, Schumer, McCain, and his blond boyfriend and other viscious enemies within our country. Trump has to do something about these people something must be done to stop these viscious, jealous, criminals from ruining our country. They have no right to keep up the horrible menacing headlines day after day, night after night. Fox, CNN, MSNBC, Channel 7, Channel 2, 4, etc. the democrats, republicans like McCain, Graham, you are in the death throes of your political lives. You all are a bunch of sadistic losers, including Obamas. Hitler was stopped, and so will you be stopped, somehow, somewhere, but the damage is done to our country, democrats wil be run out of government on a rail in every election as you have been in the past You will never regain any respect after the poison that you are spreading through the United States and Russia, too for your political gain with the uglyness and evil that all of you project. God damn you for what you are doing to our President and our country.
