Critics suggested it was no surprise that Sanders, who repeatedly obscured the truth on behalf of Donald Trump during her time in his administration, should join the widely watched conservative network whose prime time anchors are unabashed Trump enthusiasts.
Sanders left the White House in July.
Former CBS news anchor Dan Rather tweeted that her new role was “about as surprising as water flowing down hill.”
“In a way, Sarah, you’ve been a Fox contributor all along,” responded another person.

I’m not surprised Sarah Huckabee Sanders is joining Fox News, but I will be surprised to see what she looks like as a blonde.— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) August 23, 2019

Big congratulations to you, Sarah! I'm sure your recent experience twisting the truth into pretzels and outright lying prepared you well for your new career at @FoxNews.— Greg Olear (@gregolear) August 22, 2019
Well you proved that you can lie as naturally as breathing, so you should fit right in!— JC (@Jenncey) August 22, 2019

Dancing with the Stars turned you down ?— PD (@PDinCanada) August 22, 2019
You weren’t working for Fox News already when you were at the White House?
So #FoxNews hires #sarahsanders a full-time liar. A liar. A LIAR. An absolutely no holds-barred LIAR. And #FoxNews expects to be taken seriously as a news source? Hey @ChrisWallace101 want to tell us again how the news division is real? https://t.co/oqVfuHVhGz— Michael Grant (@MichaelGrantBks) August 22, 2019
Perfect job for you. Contributing liar on political issues.— 🇨🇦 Canadians Stand With The Resistance! 🇨🇦 (@CarmenN1955) August 23, 2019
You're a natural. What better place for Trump's former propaganda than Trump state TV?— ResistanceRules (@ResistanceRules) August 22, 2019
It's frankly no surprise you're joining a hateful, bigoted, racist, xenophobic, lying bunch of toads that spread fake news and rightwing propaganda. You'll fit right in, Slanders!— Mike P Williams (@Mike_P_Williams) August 22, 2019
In a way, Sarah, you’ve been a Fox contributor all along.— Robb Royer (@TXFartingsworth) August 22, 2019
