Former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has been named as a co-host of Fox News’ daytime show “Outnumbered.”

McEnany will appear on the daily show from April 6 alongside founding anchor Harris Faulkner, co-host Emily Compagno and a series of rotating panelists.

McEnany said, “I am thrilled to join the incredible women of ‘Outnumbered’ and look forward to working alongside the talented Harris Faulkner and Emily Compagno as we discuss the top issues impacting the country.”

McEnany has been outspoken after joined Fox News as a commentator earlier this month. She took a swipe at her successor Jen Psaki for the Biden press secretary’s penchant for saying she’d “circle back” to answer reporters’ questions.

“I wish Jen Psaki all the best, it is a very hard job but that being said, we took great pains in our administration to do hours and hours of research beforehand, days sometimes,” McEnany said.

“I always knew where my boss stood. Unlike other press secretaries who maybe didn’t have walk-in privileges, I could walk in at any time … I always knew where his head was at, so I didn’t have to a ton of circling back because President Trump gave a lot of access to me,” she added.

Suzanne Scott, CEO of Fox News Media, said, “Kayleigh’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 ‘Outnumbered’ — we are delighted to welcome her back to FOX News where she began her media career.”

Since joining Fox News as an on-air commentator earlier this month, McEnany has provided political analysis in appearances on “Fox & Friends”, “America Reports” and “The Five,” among others.

The Harvard Law School graduate began her career in media as an intern at Fox News, where she later became a production assistant before attending law school and joining CNN in an on-air role.
