Could Sean Spicer’s White House press secretary days be numbered? That’s sort of what it sounds like FNC’s Kimberly Guilfoyle might be suggesting …

More from the Mercury News:
“I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country,” Guilfoyle said in an [interview with the Bay Area News Group Monday night]. “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.”
Now, with rumors boiling in Washington, D.C., about a broad shakeup to Trump’s press team following a drumbeat of controversies, Guilfoyle’s name has resurfaced. The New York Times reported on Friday that Trump had suggested Guilfoyle for the press secretary job in conversations with political allies.
“I think I have a very good relationship with the president,” Guilfoyle said. “I think I enjoy a very straightforward and authentic, very genuine relationship, one that’s built on trust and integrity, and I think that’s imperative for success in that position.”
So … is she just speaking hypothetically, or is there actually a chance she could replace Sean Spicer?
She doesn't *quite* say she's in talks for the job, just that some people in WH have raised the possibility. But still … https://t.co/SIqsYZlHli
