Fox News has hired Marie Harf—formerly one of their favorite targets—as a contributor. Deadline Hollywood is reporting:
Fox News Channel has signed former State Department deputy spokesperson and Democratic advisor Marie Harf as a contributor. Harf makes her FNC debut on Martha MacCallum’s program The First 100 Days, this evening; she will offer national security and political analysis across FNC and Fox Business Network’s daytime and primetime programming.
Prior to joining the State Department, Harf was the senior advisor and media spokesperson for former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) as he was being confirmed to be Secretary of Defense. During the 2012 presidential election, Harf worked on national security and foreign policy issues for President Obama’s re-election campaign and was the campaign’s press spokesperson on national security issues. She was also a member of Obama’s debate prep team.
Her many gaffes as a deputy spokesperson at the State Department were fodder for a lot of social media snark.

When she was forced out of her job, Fox News even made a highlight reel of her more colorful moments.
This shouldn’t be awkward at all.
