Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is back with a major announcement about her plans for the future. The beloved conservative firebrand has been relatively quiet since leaving the White House, but that’s about to change.
Fox News made its first good decision in a long time, announcing that the news channel will be hiring Kayleigh McEnany as a contributor.
The decision was announced on the morning of March 3 by Fox News host Harris Faulkner.
“It is my distinct pleasure today to welcome Kayleigh McEnany to the Fox family. We will be seeing much more of her in the future,” Faulkner said.

Discussing Her Former Boss
In her first interview since leaving the White House, McEnany chose to celebrate President Trump‘s achievement of expanding the GOP’s voter base.
“One thing that needs to be said is that he has grown this party in a way that I think members of the Republican party should recognize,” she said.
“He got the highest percentage of the black vote of any Republican candidate running for national office in 20 years, highest percentage of the Hispanic vote of any Republican running for office in 16 years. He has made this party more inclusive, more expansive, more welcoming,” McEnany added.
“I think that Republicans on the Hill who are so quick to say President Trump doesn’t have a place in the party, they need to look at the numbers, and why these new voters who aren’t typically Republican voters came to the party. And it’s because he offered economic hope and opportunity to a lot of people,” she continued.

America’s Favorite Press Secretary
As the White House Press Secretary, McEnany became a beloved figure among the conservative base. She was never afraid to speak her mind, and she never hesitated to call out the mainstream media on their lies and attempted “gotcha” questions.
Many conservatives believe that Fox News made a great decision in hiring her, as the network has begun to fall out of favor with its audience. This decision may be exactly what the news channel needs to bring conservative commentary back.
