Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham sounded off on the possibility of her becoming the next White House press secretary.
Ingraham said she was aware of the news stories about that possibility, but added there were also stories about the demise of other White House staffers that never panned out.
“Lots of people were emailing me yesterday, and I was kind of in a news blackout for part of the day, and they were emailing me about, you know questions, and it’s something I don’t really have a lot of information on. I think the stories about Sean Spicer’s removal from the White House were wrong-headed from the beginning. Same stories about Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway and the president at least for the time being, his team is his team, and he’s the guy that makes the call, nobody else.”
When asked if White House press secretary were a position she would be interested in, Ingraham laid out her qualifications but said she was “not sure” if press secretary were something she would be “dying” to do.
“Yeah, I’ve always said that if it’s something that I think I could do well, and it would really advance the agenda of this administration at a time where I think there’s so much at stake for the country and for the future, you know, I would think about it. I’m not sure if that’s the role I would pick for myself. But I have a legal background, strategic, you know, political communications and planning. I’m not sure the press secretary thing is something I’m dying to do.”
