In case you missed it, Lara Trump has signed a deal with Fox News:
More from Mediaite:
Lara Trump, former President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law and senior campaign adviser, has announced that she is joining Fox News as a network contributor.
Trump appeared Monday morning on Fox & Friends, where Ainsley Earhardt kicked off the segment by announcing Trump’s role and telling her “welcome to the family.”
“I’m so excited, first of all, to be joining the Fox family,” Trump responded. “I sort of feel like I’ve been an unofficial member of the team for so long. You guys know, it was kind of a joke over the past five years, I would come there so often that the security guards were like maybe we should just give you a key.”
Honestly, this news doesn’t really come as a surprise.
Also not a surprise? CNN hall monitor and Fox News expert Brian Stelter is offended:
Fox is now directly paying the Trump family — specifically Lara Trump https://t.co/nGUbDs9nvx

Can you believe that? Just imagine, a news network directly paying members of a politician’s family!
I wonder sometimes what the state of the country and the GOP would be if Fox hadn’t consciously decided to become the propaganda arm of the Trump Cartel. https://t.co/gLZXHGVTCe

Sickening to think there’s no bottom for Fox

CNN would never, ever do something like that!
Except, of course, for when they do things exactly like that.

You work for a network that employs the brother of the Governor of New York. https://t.co/qMk6xqKkfC

Like how in exactly the same way CNN is paying the Cuomo family? https://t.co/H81wfXoWGd

Oh yeah … we almost forgot about that time Chelsea Clinton got $600,000 a year to be a “special correspondent” for NBC News.

Guess it’s only bad when Fox News does it.
