Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle said in an interview that she has been talking to White House officials about becoming press secretary or taking on another role in the administration.

Guilfoyle made the remarks in an interview with Bay Area News Group. Guilfoyle is one of the co-hosts of Fox News’ talk show “The Five” and the ex-wife of California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Sean Spicer Denies Trump Tweet Was a Threat to James Comey

“I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country,” she 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 handle that position.”

Sean Spicer has been in the position, but there have been some reports that President Donald Trump is looking to overhaul his press team. Guilfoyle was in the running for press secretary before Trump took office.

She said in the interview that Spicer is a “very nice man and patriot” and that he was in a “tough position.” “I wish him the best, and I know he puts a lot of effort into it.”

Update: A Fox News spokeswoman said, “Kimberly is a valued member of the Fox News primetime lineup, and is under a long-term contract with the network.”

Through a spokesperson, 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.”

    Leave your conscience and any integrity you may have at the door. Join the bandwagon of liars that are lining up to cover for this pathetic excuse for a president.

    It will be interesting and sad to watch the lies and disinformation of the Trump Idiocracy turning her smooth face into a quagmire of wrinkles and frowns.

  4. Philip says:

    The fact that she can’t keep her mouth shut about being considered for the job would seem to disqualify her. There are enough people with loose mouth disease in the administration already.

  5. George Lewis says:

    Kimberly is intelligent, witty, insightful, & has great long legs & wonderful cleavage. It will be a great loss if she’s not view-able on FNC! Sean Spicer is intelligent & extremely funny & entertaining. He’s an extremely popular WH Press Secretary & would be missed by viewers (probably both those who like/dislike what he says). In summary, IF he’s replaced there’s no better choice than Kimberly (but don’t cover or block her assets)! Shout out to Rupert: keep this fox @FOX!!!

      It is no wonder that Fox News and Bill O’Reilly thought it was acceptable to sexually harass and discriminate against women given the opinions of their viewers.

    • BrightLight says:

      Looks like we know what username Bill O’Reilly uses now.

    • Marie says:

      ” has great long legs & wonderful cleavage”
      What the h3ll does that have to do with working with the White House?
