President-Elect Trump Just Found His Press Secretary…She’s The PERFECT Fit!
By Kathy Shaidle|December 15, 2016

While White House press secretary isn’t the most powerful position in a presidential administration, it is arguably the most visible.

It can also be one of the most controversial, as the press secretary serves as a surrogate for the president and the media direct a lot of their frustrations at him or her.

Now it has emerged that a face that is already familiar to millions of Americans is being considered for this all important role.

Tara Palmeri reports for Politico:

Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle has emerged as a contender to be Donald Trump’s White House press secretary, and is expected to have a third meeting with his transition team this week, according to two sources familiar with the meetings. (…)

Some in Trump’s inner circle have argued that Guilfoyle, who is [a former assistant district attorney and] half-Puerto Rican, would be a more sympathetic face when flacking some of Trump’s more divisive stances on immigration and pro-life issues.

“Who do you want talking about Immigration?” [asked an unnamed source in “Trump’s inner circle”] “A Latino. When you have to make decisions about pro-life justices, do you want a man or a woman?”

While these advantages are probably real, it will be ironic if Trump, who prides himself on being politically incorrect and only hiring based on merit, ultimately picks someone based on their ethnic background or gender.

Politico adds:

Other names floated for press secretary have included radio host Laura Ingraham, Trump’s former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, tea party activist and former Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson and The Daily Mail’s U.S. political editor, David Martosko.
