Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle said in a new interview that she believes women in the Trump administration "have been dealt an unfair hand by the media" in a "very dishonest way." 

"It’s sad because these are really incredible bright, strong, patriotic women serving their country, admirably, at great personal sacrifice," the co-host of "The Five" responded when asked about coverage of female officials including White House counselor Kellyanne ConwayKellyanne Elizabeth ConwayBiden calls for equal pay for US women's soccer team Biden calls for equal pay for US women's soccer team Watchdog group launches petition to demand Kellyanne Conway resign for violating Hatch Act MORE and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"They’ve been dealt an unfair hand by the media who’s just very dishonest in the way that they cover them, portray them, and really dishonor the sacrifice and the service that they give to all of us, each and every day," she added.

"I just wish [the media] were better about, in fact, being honest about what the accomplishments are, what the sacrifices are. And really, the personal attacks are just quite disgusting," Guilfoyle continued. "I felt and experienced personal attacks myself based on beliefs and being a conservative woman."

"I just think it’s unfair. It’s not building other people up, that’s for sure. I certainly don’t like it when other women do it to one another," she added.

Guilfoyle joined Fox News in 2006 after serving as a legal analyst on "Anderson Cooper 360" on CNN and, prior to that, a Court TV host.

“I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country,” Guilfoyle said in May 2017. “I think it’d be a fascinating job. It’s a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position.”
