Sarah Sanders heads to Fox News as a contributor

Outgoing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hugs US President Donald Trump during a second chance hiring and criminal justice reform event in the East Room of the White House in Washington DC

The news of Sanders joining Fox News comes a day after ABC announced that Sean Spicer, her predecessor as White House press secretary, had been picked as a contestant on "Dancing With the Stars".

In a statement, Sanders said she was "beyond proud" to join the team of on-air contributors at Fox News. Sanders will provide political commentary and analysis across all of Fox News Media, including Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, Fox News Digital, Fox Nation and the radio/podcast division, according to the network.

Sanders will make her first appearance during FOX & Friends' live audience show on Friday, Sept. 6.

The relationship between Fox News and the Trump White House has always been incestuous, with a door that, as The New Yorker's Jane Mayer wrote earlier this year, "swings both ways".

This will mean lots of paid airtime for Sanders on the wingnut channel of choice at a propitious time, ahead of a possible run for governor of Arkansas in 2020. Under her tenure, the White House effectively eliminated the daily briefing with the press.

Some Fox personalities have also crossed over to the Trump orbit. "Sarah is right at home with Trump's base, even as she was ostracized by the mainstream".

Sanders left the administration in June and was replaced by Stephanie Grisham. Sanders, Raj Shah, Hope Hicks, Thomas Homan, Bill Shine, Heather Nauert, Sebastian Gorka, John Bolton, Morgan Ortagus - among others - have all worked for Fox News or its parent company as well as for the Trump administration.

It raises the question: How should former White House officials who misled the public be treated when they seek positions of fame and privilege? Sanders was also reportedly eying a run for governor of Arkansas, and will now have a national platform in her Fox News role.
