Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose dishonesty was so infamous that it even earned a mention in special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, is taking a job at Fox News.
According to journalist Yashar Ali, Sanders has been hired as a contributor and "she'll be making her debut September 6th on Fox & Friends."

As the Mueller report documented, Sanders admitted to investigators that she lied to reporters when she claimed to have received countless messages from FBI agents thanking President Donald Trump for firing former FBI Director James Comey.
Sanders' rampant dishonesty became such a running joke that comedian Michelle Wolf mocked her to her face for constantly lying during her performance at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in 2018.
Because of all this, news that Sanders would be joining the president's favorite morning news show drew howls of laughter and indignation on Twitter -- check out some of the responses below.
