Is Kimberly Guilfoyle Replacing Sean Spicer?

In any other year, I’d say something like the following would seem implausible. Now, who knows? I don’t, and neither do you.

Casey Tolan, Mercury News:

Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former first lady of San Francisco and current Fox News host, is in conversations with the Trump administration about becoming White House press secretary…

Guilfoyle said the idea of her taking the job or another press role in the White House has been “raised by a number of people” in the Trump administration, although she declined to go into specifics.

I guess you could say this story has… legs.

Of course, this raises an obvious question: If Guilfoyle becomes the new WH press secretary, which Hollywood superstar will be recruited to play her on Saturday Night Live? Off the top of my head, Sandra Bullock would work. She looks the part, plus she’s worked with Melissa McCarthy. So that could be good, if you still watch SNL.

I don’t know if Sean Spicer should be worried or relieved about this possibility. I wouldn’t wish that job on my worst enemy, regardless of the administration in power. Just a thankless task.

P.S.

From a FOX News spokesperson:
“Kimberly is a valued member of the FOX News primetime lineup, and is under a long-term contract with the network.”

From Kimberly Guilfoyle:
Through a spokesperson, Kimberly 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.”
