Did Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle have any part in the ousting of Reince Priebus as the White House Chief of Staff?
On Thursday, the day it has been reported that Priebus tendered his resignation, Guilfoyle told her co-hosts on “The Five” of a dinner she attended at the White House on Wednesday evening with fellow Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Guilfoyle was noncommittal to her co-hosts and the audience as to what was discussed at the dinner, that also included President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Anthony Scaramucci and former Fox News executive Bill Shine.
But a report in the New York Times suggested that the Fox News host told the president that Priebus was “a leaker” and a “problem.”
She opined that Priebus was “someone who was not serving his agenda,” according to the Times who cited an anonymous source familiar with the conversation.
“I think we should wait and see what’s gonna happen and what the president’s gonna decide,” Guilfoyle said on “The Five.”
“He is the American president. People serve at the pleasure of the president and he’s the one that gives direction. He’s the one that makes the choices and the personnel decisions and they are gonna be his to make so we’re gonna — we’ll see — I don’t know,” she added.
Her co-host Juan Williams pressed her further, asking her if she had “any indication as to whose coming and whose going.”
“Wait and see what the president decides,” she responded.
