Fox News Host Says She's in Talks to Become White House Spokeswoman

Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle told a San Francisco newspaper chain that she's in talks to become a White House spokeswoman.

One of the co-hosts of the Fox News show "The Five," Guilfoyle said that her becoming press secretary—a job currently held by Sean Spicer—or some other communications post has been "raised by a number of people."

“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. “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.”

The New York Times reported last week that Trump had mentioned Guilfoyle to allies as a possible press secretary, though Trump had previously praised him as getting "great ratings."

A former prosecutor in San Francisco and Los Angeles, Guilfoyle was married for four years to then-San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, who is now serving as California lieutenant governor.
