Kimberly Guilfoyle all but dares Fox News to block her and Don Jr from GOP debate spin room

Kimberly Guilfoyle responded to disputed reports that Fox News will ban Trump surrogates from the spin room following Wednesday night’s Republican presidential debate — Donald Trump has opted to skip out on facing the rest of the field because early polling has him well ahead in the race.

In effect, Guilfoyle, who sneeringly referred to the other GOP candidates as the “undercard,” dared her former network to try to stop her and beau Donald Trump Jr., declaring during an appearance on Newsmax that they will be at the debate being held in Milwaukee.

“I think, unfortunately, for a media company that I used to work for, you would expect better,” she said. “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,” Guilfoyle added.

The Daily Mail cited sources to report that only presidential campaigns participating in the debate being aired on Fox News will be allowed on media row, which is where surrogates go to spin the results of the debate in a favorable manner for their candidate.

Interestingly, Fox News host Bret Baier, who will moderate the debate, told Hugh Hewitt that Trump’s surrogates have not been “blocked” from the spin room. At the same time, his explanation was full of caveats.

“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,” Baier said. “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,” he added. “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.”
