SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE (NOT)

It really was about the only high-profile recourse she had post-White House.

Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ reward for a fairly consistent record of obfuscation and press-bashing/bullying is a job as a Fox News contributor.

Stop laughing.

She spent nearly two years at the White House before leaving in June.

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.

She begins her new role on September 6.

With Sanders’ hiring, the number of high-profile former Trump communications officials on the payroll at Fox News or its parent company is up to three: Former White House communications director Hope Hicks now serves as the parent company’s chief communications officer; former White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah was hired as a senior vice president; and now Sanders joins their ranks.

Meantime, one of her many predecessors in the press job, Sean Spicer, is limbering up for his role in the upcoming season of “Dancing With The Stars.”

Resume laughing.
