FOX News Hires Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile As Political Contributor And Some People Are Not Happy

Former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile lost her last job at CNN for leaking questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign before a presidential town hall event in 2016.

Now she has been hired as a political contributor at FOX News.

Former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile is joining Fox News as a commentator, the network said on Monday.

The longtime Democratic operative will offer commentary on both Fox News and Fox Business, and her move comes as some in the Democratic Party have accused the channel of functioning as state-run television for President Donald Trump, especially after an article in the New Yorker outlined how intertwined the network is with Trump’s White House.

Brazile in a statement said she was “delighted” to join the network and said she was eager to represent Democrats for Fox News viewers, who she argued don’t “hear enough from Democrats.”

She acknowledged that she might catch heat from members of her party for the move, saying that “my response is that, if we’ve learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can’t have a country where we don’t talk to those who disagree with our political views.”

Some people are very unhappy about this decision. Here’s a sampling from Twitter:

This does seem like a strange decision.
