Are Sean Spicer's White House Press Briefings a Thing of the Past?

After printing off a headshot of the White House spokesman, Kadonaga planted him in a suitable bush and posted the result to Facebook, "as a chuckle for a few people", she told CBC News. She is also a former criminal prosecutor who worked in both San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Guilfoyle asserted that many people have mentioned the notion of her holding a position in White House as President Trump's chief spokeswoman or press secretary.

"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 be able to handle that position", Guilfoyle said Monday.

Guilfoyle is one of the reliably pro-Trump voices on Fox News' "The Five", which recently shifted from afternoons to primetime in the wake of the Bill O'Reilly sexually harassment scandal.

Citing "several officials familiar with the president's thinking", Politico reported that Trump is also considering shaking up his entire communications team as several ongoing scandals continue to make news on a daily basis.

She described beleaguered press secretary Sean Spicer as "a very nice man and a patriot" who "puts a lot of effort" into the job.

Conservative Laura Ingraham has spread the rumor that the new White House is already searching for a new press secretary to replace Spicer. "I'm not sure he knows the answer to that yet". "You've got to maintain on getting in front of POTUS, talk to him, and have like five, six minutes with him afore you go out there and take the podium, or else you're driving blind". And an additional wrinkle is being considered as well: more press conferences by Trump himself, sources tell BuzzFeed News.

However, Guilfoyle won't be taking Spicer's job as Fox News said she's still under a long term contract.

It remains to be seen if Guilfoyle actually will join the White House communications team, or if she would replace Spicer. "It has to be somebody with a very close relationship, where there's trust there, there's inherent loyalty, someone who's been there from the beginning", she said last week. But saying it would be "tough to beat" is hardly backing down from her statement in the interview, in which she pretty clearly stated that even though she loved Fox, she'd totally leave for a White House job.

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with flawless accuracy!"
