WASHINGTON D.C. (CelebrityAccess) — Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the former White House Press Secretary who became notorious as U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s honesty-challenged spokesperson, has been hired by Fox News as a contributor.
According to Fox News, Sanders will lend her deep expertise to provide “political commentary” and “analysis” across all of FOX News Media’s brands, including FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX Nation and the radio/podcast division.
She is slated to make her official debut on the network’s FOX & Friends during its next live audience show on September 6th.
“FOX News has been the number one news organization in the country for 17 years running and I am beyond proud to join their incredible stable of on-air contributors in providing political insights and analysis,” Sanders said in a statement announcing her new gig.
Sanders served as the White House Press Secretary for two seemingly endless, exhausting, and pernicious years from July 2017 through June 2019 during which she oversaw the seeming dismantling of the tradition of the daily White House Press Briefing.
She also gained a reputation for debating previously settled and established facts with reporters, making outlandish claims without supporting facts, and providing apparently inaccurate statements according to the Mueller Report about the firing of former attorney general Jeff Sessions’s and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s connection to the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
The daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Sanders has previously worked in numerous roles for U.S. Senators, Governors, and presidential campaigns, including serving as a senior advisor to Senator Tom Cotton and campaign manager for Senator John Boozman.
Her proximity to power has also helped the Ouachita Baptist University communications grad serve in advisory roles to numerous Fortune 500 companies and non-profits, including Bono ‘s One Campaign to end global poverty.
