Kimberly Guilfoyle, press secretary?
After a pretty tough week for White House press secretary Sean Spicer, President Donald Trump is reportedly mulling a broad shake-up of his communications team, and floated the idea of bringing in Guilfoyle, according to the New York Times.
Six West Wing officials told the Times that Trump is dissatisfied with several top aides, especially Spicer, who the president kept out of the loop about the decision to fire FBI director James Comey out of fear Spicer’s staff would leak the news to media outlets.
Trump's decision led to a mad scramble by the White House communication's team following the announcement, leading to a widely-mocked moment where Spicer hid "among the bushes" as reporters sought answers about Comey's firing.
Trump himself told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro in an interview that aired Saturday night that it would be a “good idea” to end Spicer’s daily news briefing, replacing it with news conferences he hosted himself every two weeks or so.
Trump is also considering expanding his communications team by hiring producers from Fox News. The Wall Street Journal reports that a senior communications official on Trump's staff reportedly called “a network of supportive cable TV surrogates to gauge their interest in joining the team."
This isn’t the first time Guilfoyle’s name has been mentioned as a possible press secretary. Prior to Trump’s inauguration, she was seen entering Trump Tower, leading to rumors that she was being considered for the role Trump intimately filled by hiring Spicer.
Guilfoyle did not respond to a request for comment, and hasn’t weighed in on the reports publicly. But on Friday, she noted on Twitter she was wearing shoes sold by the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump.

Guilfoyle isn't the first Fox News personality Trump as sought to bring in to his administration. Her co-host on The Five, Eric Bolling, turned down a potential job with the Department of Commerce, while Fox News contributor KT McFarland accepted a position as Deputy National Security advisor. McFarland was replaced after just two months on the job by Army Reserve Maj. Gen. Ricky Waddell.
