Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Media Buzz,” host Howard Kurtz announced “The Five” anchor Kim Guilfoyle’s departure.
Kurtz read Fox News’ statement, saying, “Fox News has parted ways with Kimberly Guilfoyle.”
According to Kurtz, Guilfoyle’s relationship with Donald Trump Jr. put the network “in a difficult position” with tensions “on both sides.”
Guilfoyle is set to join the America First PAC leadership as vice-chairwoman, Kurtz reported.
“I can report that Guilfoyle views this move as a rare opportunity,” said Kurtz. “She is about to join America First, the pro-Trump PAC as vice-chairwoman, to be a TV spokeswoman and fundraiser for the president. She also plans to hit the campaign trail with Donald, Jr. for the mid-terms. And the two have told friends that marriage could be in their future.”
He added, “[B]ehind the scenes, there have been tensions as lawyers on both sides have tried to negotiate the issues surrounding her departure.”
