Kimberly Guilfoyle Wants Sean Spicer's Job; Fox Says No Way

I told host Brian Stelter that as much as I loved Melissa McCarthy in New York City on a motorized podium as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, it was "Weekend Update" that impressed me most.

The president represented himself in an interview with Jeanine Pirro that aired on Fox News on Saturday evening, in one of the few shows to secure any comment from the White House over the weekend about the previous week's events.

Guilfoyle, 48, is a lawyer by trade and a former prosecutor in San Francisco and Los Angeles. The president also blamed the Democrats and the media for obstructing his agenda, said they were only focused on stories that make him look bad.

Spicer doesn't know Trump is planning to fire him and Guilfoyle was supposed to keep it confidential.

"I think I have a very good relationship with the president", she told the Bay Area News Group. Trump's visible anger and erratic tweets prompted a reporter to ask press secretary Sean Spicer on Friday if the president was "out of control".

"The New York Times mentioned Guilfoyle's name in this piece last week about how thankless a job it is to be Trump's surrogate, titled "'Looking Like a Liar or a Fool': "What It Means to Work for Trump", suggesting though that Spicer had spent "several hours" with Trump last week, implying he was still in the loop. "You have these tremendous - the level of hatred toward him, especially during that period of time with Hillary Clinton where he gave her a free ride", Trump said. Reports indicated that the White House was caught off-guard by the backlash that the move received and was not ready to address it the very same night the decision was made public.

After firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director last week, Trump sent out an ominous message which implied that his conversations with Comey were recorded, and that Comey "better hope" they never find their way to the media.

Meghan McCain said today that the White House communications team has not helped President Trump and the result is a "mess". "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".

"I really love what I do, and this job is tough to beat", she continued.

Ms Guilfoyle, a TV personality who co-hosts The Five, said she thought it would be both a "fascinating" and "challenging" job which would require the input of someone who was both committed and concentrated.
