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.
“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.”
