Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will join Fox News as a paid contributor next month. As Trump’s chief spokesperson, Sanders repeatedly lied about basic facts, belittling members of the White House press corps and even promoting a doctored video to imply that CNN’s Jim Acosta physically assaulted a White House intern. She frequently went weeks or even months between press conferences. Sanders’s move to Fox News continues the Trump administration’s revolving-door relationship with the far-right cable network. More than 20 people have held jobs both at Fox and in the Trump administration.
Meanwhile, Sarah Sanders’s predecessor as press secretary, Sean Spicer, will be paid to appear on the next season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” Variety reports the deal could earn Spicer up to $295,000. One disgruntled ABC staffer, speaking anonymously to CNN, said, “It’s a slap in the face to those of us who had to deal with his baloney and the consequences of the ongoing lies and disinformation campaign at the White House.”
