Fox News' Kimberly Guilfoyle in talks for White House press secretary job

Fox News' Kimberly Guilfoyle in talks for White House press secretary job

The discussion was centered around the new report that FBI Director James Comey wrote a memo in which he accused Trump of asking him to shut down the investigation into Michael Flynn. Still, Mr Priebus was among the tight circle of staff Mr Trump consulted about Mr Comey's firing.

Hallie Jackson of MSNBC asked Spicer that if he refuses to neither "confirm nor deny" if Trump has tapes of conversations he had with Comey, how any official would feel comfortable speaking privately with the president in the White House. Even a great briefer could, as a result, be a bad press secretary.

On this week's show, he said, the cast made light of Trump's interview with Lester Holt, his lawyers' admission that he has no business dealings with Russian Federation "with a few exceptions" and Sean Spicer's combative press briefings.

President Donald Trump had not expected such a strong reaction over his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, he told Fox News' Jeanine Pirro in an interview that aired Saturday.

He increasingly sees himself as the White House's only effective spokesman, according to multiple people who have spoken with him.

In reality, the president hasn't made it clear what his position is.

He did not walk a batter in the contest and struck out five in what was a crisp, effective outing against the rival Giants. It was the 10th double of the season for Grandal, who has an extra-base hit in seven of his last nine games.

President Trump is reportedly considering a major shake-up in his communications department, and a Bay Area native may be part of his plans.

The 48-year-old former prosecutor was rumored to be a leading candidate for the job back in December, and now Guilfoyle says of Spicer, the man who ultimately got it, "Sean Spicer is a very nice man and a patriot; he's dedicated himself to this public service". "He's a little bit like a quarterback that gets ahead of his offensive line".

The exclusive news group interview with Guilfoyle was picked by the Washington Post, Politico and other news sites and quickly became one of the day's top trending stories.

White House officials had hoped last week's House vote would give the president a much-needed burst of momentum and infuse new energy into efforts to fully overhaul the "Obamacare" health law and pass a massive tax reform package.

"That's, frankly, offensive", Spicer said.
