For weeks now, there has been rampant speculation that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was going to lose his job – those rumors have just been confirmed for the very first time.
Former Victoria’s Secret Model and Fox News Host Kimberly Guilfoyle spoke in an exclusive interview with the Bay Area News Group late Monday night and said she was currently in talks with President Trump to take over the role of Press Secretary.
“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 is already talking as if she has the job in the bag, saying she wishes Spicer “the very best.”
“Sean Spicer is a very nice man and a patriot; he’s dedicated himself to this public service,” she said. “Very tough position he’s in — I wish him the best, and I know he puts a lot of effort into it.”
Her interview comes shortly after the New York Times already leaked on Friday that Trump was floating her name out there in conversations he was having with political allies, to see if she would be a good fit.
She’s even talking about the role openly on her show, claiming she has a great relationship to President Trump.
“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 air. “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 added.
“I think I have a very good relationship with the president,” Guilfoyle said. “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.”
