Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas dubbed Fox News “State T.V.” after news broke that former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had taken a job with the network.

The Hill tweeted the news Thursday that Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be joining the Fox News Network as a contributor. (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Lands At Fox News)

And O’Rourke responded within the hour.

O’Rourke was far from the only critic of Sanders’ move.

Sanders will be joining former White House staffers under the broad Fox umbrella — Hope Hicks and Raj Shah both work for Fox Corp.

Not to mention her own father, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.

Sanders is expected to make her debut on the cable news channel on “Fox & Friends” Sept. 6.
