Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has signed on as a contributor with Fox News, a move that was expected but formally announced on Tuesday.

"It is my distinct pleasure today to welcome Kayleigh McEnany to the Fox family," said Fox host Harris Faulkner. "We will be seeing much more of her in the future."

McEnany had previously told the U.S. Office of Government Ethics that she was planning to work for Fox after former President Donald Trump left office.

The Daily Beast reported that some Fox employees were upset at the announcement, including one who compared McEnany to Adolf Hitler's right-hand man, Joseph Goebbels.

"It's truly disgusting they fired hard-working journalists who did care about facts and news reporting only to turn around and hire a mini-Goebbels whose incessant lies from the White House helped incite an insurrection on our democracy that got five people killed, including a police officer," said the anonymous employee.

Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki wished McEnany well in her new role during a press conference Tuesday afternoon.

McEnany was trending after the news broke on Twitter, where she thanked many of her friends and supporters for their well wishes.
