McEnany joined the conservative network — where for the last few years many personalities have openly stumped for Trump ― as a paid on-air contributor last month. On Tuesday, she was announced as the new co-host of the daytime show “Outnumbered.”

McEnany, a frequent guest on Fox News during the Trump era, said she was “thrilled” and “honored.” She’ll appear daily alongside anchor Harris Faulkner, co-host Emily Compagno and a number of rotating panelists starting April 6.
In a statement, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott said McEnany’s “unique background in politics and law coupled with her experiences confronting women’s health challenges and life as a new mom will add robust insight” to the show.
Conservatives congratulated McEnany on Twitter. Critics were less enthused, recalling her record of falsehoods:

The announcement came a day after Lara Trump, the former president’s daughter-in-law, made her debut on Fox News as a paid on-air contributor.
