Fox News Channel is the number-one rated cable news network.
But there was a major shakeup over at Fox.
And Fox News made a shocking change with this big-name hire.
Fox News announced that it hired former Democrat Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard as an on-air contributor.
The Los Angeles Times reports:
One month after leaving the Democratic Party, former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is joining Fox News as a paid contributor.
A representative for the conservative-leaning cable channel confirmed Gabbard signed a deal Monday and will start appearing on its programs next week.
Gabbard, 41, pursued the 2020 Democratic nomination for president. But she has been distancing herself from the party ever since and has appeared as a frequent guest on Fox News, including its most-watched shows, “The Five” and “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Gabbard made waves last month by announcing that she was leaving the Democrat Party due to the Left’s embrace of woke ideology and Constitution-shredding agenda.
“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that’s under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers who are driven by cowardly woke-ness, who divide us by radicalizing every issue and stoke anti-white racism, actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution, who are hostile towards people of faith and spirituality,” Gabbard explained as her reasoning for leaving the Party.
Gabbard proceeded to endorse a number of Republican candidates and also campaigned for them on the trail.
Gabbard’s estrangement from the Democrat Party really began in 2016 when she did not endorse Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign.
The Hawaii Democrat did not back Clinton because of her support for war with Russia over Syria.
After her defeat, Clinton then smeared Gabbard as a Russian asset.
Gabbard’s job at Fox News will also increase chatter that Donald Trump could choose her as a running mate on the 2024 ticket if he wins the GOP nomination.
Trump and Gabbard both support an America First foreign policy that opposes reckless nation building and endless wars overseas.
And Trump and Gabbard both oppose how Democrats treat wokeness as a religion.
It remains to be seen if Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination in two years.
But in that time frame, Gabbard will likely use her position on Fox News to build her political profile.
