Sarah Huckabee Sanders Joins Fox News: Report
Former Donald Trump’s spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders is joining Fox News as a contributor, the right-wing network announced Thursday.
The disgraced ex-Press Secretary, who left the Trump administration roughly two months ago, will appear on various Fox platforms to provide political commentary. She will make her first appearance on “Fox & Friends” during its Sept. 6 broadcast, according to the report.
Sanders worked on the Trump campaign and later in the White House, where she spent approximately two years as press secretary. In that role, she oversaw the demise of the daily press briefing and had a strained relationship with the press corps.
While Sanders did not hold regular briefings in the White House, she did appear regularly on Fox News programming to take questions from anchors.
Her credibility took a hit after she admitted to federal investigators that she misled reporters when she claimed during a May 2017 briefing that “countless” FBI agents had told her they supported Trump’s decision to fire former Director James Comey.
Sanders has been floated as a future gubernatorial candidate in her native Arkansas, where her father, Mike Huckabee, held the same job for 11 years. Huckabee is also a Fox News contributor and hosted a weekend show on the network.
