CLAIM: Trump eyeing Fox News host for WH press secretary


Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle may become the next White House press secretary, according to a New York Times report published on Friday, so readers of this article should consider the source of this information.

In addition to appearing as a regular host on the Fox News Channel, Guilfoyle, 48, is a co-host of the “The Five,” which airs during primetime.

It was rumored in December, before Spicer actually took the position, that Guilfoyle was a top candidate and might share the job with Spicer, a former spokesperson for the Republican National Committee. According to the media website Mediaite, back in December Kimberly Guilfoyle was making a push for the White House press secretary role.

The NY Times reports that while Mr. Trump has raised the idea of Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle as a possible press secretary, he has spent several hours with Mr. Spicer this week, praising his television ‘ratings’ during the briefings.

Rumors about Guilfoyle started swirling on the same day Trump posted on Twitter that he was thinking about putting an end to regular White House press.

In one post, Trump wrote, “As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!….”

So, the president is obviously having trouble keeping up-to-date information flowing to his press secretary. However, this doesn’t mean that rumors of a huge staff shake-up are even true. Spicer has not yet been fired, and Guilfoyle has not yet been hired.
