Spicer to be replaced?
According to the Washington Examiner, President Trump picked up on her not-so-subtle message, but it had the opposite effect: Instead of endearing her to the president, Guilfoyle’s remarks reportedly made him “furious”.
“When I heard that exchange today between Jeff Mason, a White House reporter, and Sean Spicer speaking from the podium in the briefing room for the President of the United States, it took my breath away”, said Wallace to Fox News host Shepard Smith. So, while everybody seems pretty confident that White House press secretary Sean Spicer will soon be fired as a scapegoat for all of the bad stuff the Trump administration has done so far, there’s really no way to predict if it will actually happen.
“I know he puts a lot of effort into it”, Guilfoyle said.
“I think I have a very good relationship with the president”, she said.
Fox News is the preferred network of Republican and conservative viewers as its commentators – including Guilfoyle – are largely positive in their assessments of Trump.
Pirro asked Trump. Before she’d even finished asking the question, Trump was heartily agreeing and explaining how the obvious solution would be that “we don’t have press conferences”.
Guilfoyle, 48, is a lawyer by trade and a former prosecutor in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Mr Spicer was absent from press briefings for two days last week while he carried out Navy reservist duties, in which he was replaced by deputy White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. It’s a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused. But the team is looking at offering Guilfoyle an “ancillary role, ‘ and that there is consideration of perhaps having Spicer and the Fox host split the position”.
“As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with flawless accuracy!”
“Sean Spicer is a very nice man and a patriot”.
Guilfoyle has been with Fox News since 2005 as part of its daily talk show, which was moved into a prime-time slot following the April 19 firing of the network’s longtime anchor Bill O’Reilly. Another official said to expect fewer on-camera briefings in general – something that the administration has been toying with since Trump entered office.
