Kimberly Guilfoyle fired back at Fox News over reports that Trump surrogates are getting the cold shoulder from the network and may not be allowed in ‘the spin room’ after the GOP primary debate.
She said: “I think, unfortunately, for a media company that I used to work for, you would expect better. But this is just really pathetic messaging. They’re just stepping out on themselves here.
“It’s backfiring spectacularly. It’s taking distraction away from the focus on the debate. And I’d just like to see somebody try to stop Don Jr. and me from going someplace.”
Fox News host Bret Baier disputed the report that Trump surrogates are banned:
“I do want to say one other thing about, there’s all these stories out there about surrogates, Trump surrogates, and how they’re not being allowed into the debate.
“That’s not the case at all. It’s, if they get invited to the debate, first of all, the RNC handles all the tickets.
“If they are an elected official, they get a ticket no matter what.
“If they are a surrogate and they get invited, they get to go.
“As far as in the spin room, it is the candidates on the stage and their delegates.
“And then if any media organization who’s in the spin room invites one of these surrogates, a Trump surrogate, they are welcome to come.
“They have to get the invite from the media person in the room.”
