Fox News’ latest addition to the right-leaning network isn’t a hit with viewers.
Countless people took to social media to complain that the new hire, former Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile, is “terrible” and “awful,” to name a few insults.
The criticism kicked off after Fox News host, Laura Ingraham, took to Twitter Wednesday night to blast Brazile for comments she made about former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump during an appearance on Hannity.
“My new colleague @donnabrazile just credited Obama for @realDonaldTrump’s mfging jobs boom,” she tweeted. “But Obama said those jobs weren’t coming back.”

Many Fox viewers took the opportunity to share their opinions about Brazile in the post’s comments section, with one person writing: “She’s AWFUL. How embarrassing that Fox hired her and is forcing her on to shows.”
She's AWFUL. How embarrassing that Fox hired her and is forcing her on to shows.

“She is why I am no longer watching @FoxNews,” someone else said.
In response to a fan who said they’re excited to watch Brazile on Fox, another viewer wrote: “We’re not. She’s terrible.”

Brazile announced her move to the network in a statement Monday, noting that some of her liberal friends probably wouldn’t understand her decision.
“I know I’m going to get criticized from my friends in the progressive movement for being on Fox News,” she said. “My response is that, if we’ve learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can’t have a country where we don’t talk to those who disagree with our political views.”
