Fox News' Guilfoyle up for White House press secretary job

Do you think that Kimberly Guilfoyle would be an upgrade over Sean Spicer as President Trump's White House press secretary if she does take the job, assuming that it is offered to her? She told The Mercury News on Monday she's in contact with members of the Trump administration, and that there have been real conversations about it.

Spicer has had an adversarial relationship with the White House press corps from the beginning, starting with a dispute over inauguration crowd sizes, and the GOP communications veteran has also reportedly drawn the ire of President Trump on various occasions.

Exit question: Why the hell would Trump, a president consumed with embarrassing leaks, want someone as his new press secretary who's already blabbing about internal White House operations?

"I'm a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country", she told the Bay Area News Group, which includes the San Jose Mercury News.

Through a spokesperson, Kimberly Guilfoyle said, "As I stated in the interview, I really love what I do and my job co-hosting The Five is tough to beat". "I think it'd be a fascinating job".

On her show last week, following Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, Guilfoyle criticized certain aspects of Trump's current press team, though she didn't offer her own name to take over.

"Spicy Spicer" has noticeably become much more subdued in his handling of the press since rumors spread about his potential dismissal, fielding questions with much more caution and far less gusto.

In what sounds like a blatant presidential bid to influence Justice Department and FBI investigations into his campaign's links to Russian Federation, a portion of a Comey memo read to the Times quotes Trump after, the memo suggests, the President asked that all others at a meeting clear the room save for Comey. She thinks an awesome relationship like that is "imperative for success" as the president's press secretary, and though she's still not saying if she'd take the job, Guilfoyle makes it clear that she thinks she's the flawless person for it.

As for Spicer the man, Kadonaga says he has her heartfelt sympathy after being cast in the arduous, and usually thankless role, of trying to put the best public face on the often erratic pronouncements of President Donald Trump. In confirming that she has discussed taking a position in the White House with a number of people there, the former attorney made this observation. She added that her son goes to the same school as one of Mr. Trump's granddaughters.

So does Guilfoyle think that somebody could be her? Even as Mr Trump reassured advisers like Mr Spicer that their jobs were safe at the morning meeting, he told other advisers he knew he needed to make big changes but did not know which direction to go in, or whom to select. The two are still close friends, she said. "I've never been someone who's motivated by financial interests".

"I guess it doesn't matter what day it is".

Guilfoyle, the ex-wife of California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, has been with Fox News since 2006. "At the same time, life is exciting and it's about different chapters in your life, so I'm excited about the future".
