Mike Pompeo has accepted a paid contributor position with Fox News and leftists are going ballistic, according to The Red State.
Democrat administration officials have taken up jobs in the media network for decades.
Former Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos works for ABC News.
Obama advisor Van Jones works for CNN and so on.
However, if Republican administration officials do the same thing the left can’t stand themselves.
Former Trump White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany had accepted a job with Fox News and it didn’t sit right with leftists.

Former Secretary of State under Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, is now also working at Fox.
Fox News Media announced that Pompeo has accepted a new contributor role.
The Media outlet said that they would provide the former DefSec with a regular platform to not only get his message out on a regular basis; it will also serve the Kansan well if he eventually decides to seek a Senate seat
Fox News Media CEO Suzzane Scott said, “Mike Pompeo is one of America’s most recognized and respected voices on foreign policy and national security issues.”
“I look forward to his contributions across our range of platforms to share his distinct perspective with our millions of viewers.”
Pompeo claims that he intends to keep doing what he exactly as he did while Secretary of State.
“As a now-former diplomat and member of Congress, and in this new role at FOX News Media, I intend to give viewers a candid, no-nonsense look at geopolitics, international relations and the America First policies that helped chart the course for unprecedented American prosperity and security.”

Why are we still referring to this as a "conservative cable channel" when it is clearly the media arm of the GOP?
Also? Pompeo is a tool with a hair-trigger smirk.

As is always the case in situations like this, our pals on the left are far more afraid of Mike Pompeo than any of the nonsense they spew suggests.
To that end, congratulations on your new gig, Mike.
