Ronna McDaniel Has a New Gig and It’s Exactly What You Would Expect

In a completely unsurprising turn of events, former Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has landed a new role as an on-air commentator for NBC News.

The move comes on the heels of her stepping down from her position at the RNC, where she served as the longest-tenured chair since the Civil War.

McDaniel’s departure from the RNC coincided with former President Donald Trump becoming the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Trump, who had initially tapped McDaniel to lead the party after then-Chairman Reince Priebus left to become White House chief of staff, had grown dissatisfied with her leadership and sought closer coordination between his campaign and the RNC.

NBC News’ SVP of Politics Carrie Budoff Brown emphasized the significance of McDaniel’s addition to the team, telling the New York Times, “It couldn’t be a more important moment to have a voice like Ronna’s on the team.”

As a political analyst, McDaniel will offer commentary on the campaign and presidential politics, appearing on both NBC and MSNBC.

Her debut is set for this Sunday’s episode of “Meet the Press,” and she is slated to be a part of the networks’ election night broadcasts.

The only thing really surprising about this announcement is she’s working for NBC News and not CNN or MSNBC.
