Fox News announced Monday that former State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf has been signed as a contributor and not everyone is thrilled with the decision.
The unlikely pairing caught many off guard, given Harf’s acrimonious relationship with the network over the years, including her taking a pot shot at Bill O’Reilly once on social media.
The venerable Charles Krauthammer likened the Obama administration spinmeister to “Baghdad Bob during the invasion of Iraq.”
Harf has said some head-scratching things over the years, to include saying “a lack of opportunity for jobs” was a “root cause” for people joining ISIS.

“We cannot win this war by killing them,” she told MSNBC host Chris Matthews in 2015.
Harf will offer analysis on politics and national security. She made her debut on the network Monday night on Martha MacCallum’s program, “The First 100 Days.”
Her nondescript appearance — dare we say boring? — can be seen below, beginning at the 19:15 minute mark:
Based on the reaction on social media, Harf will have to grow on Fox News viewers because they were NOT happy to see her mug on the screen.
Here’s a sampling of the outrage seen on Twitter:

Martha McCallum and Marie Harf on the first 100 days. No reason in the world to ever put that show on.

Met Stacey Dash at #CPAC 2016. Why Fox replaced her with former Obama spox Marie Harf who said “get jobs for ISIS” is beyond me. #MAGA pic.twitter.com/uY45z9ELgx

VERY disappointed to see former State Dept spokesman Marie Harf on @marthamaccallum show. What an insult to your viewers.

Why did Fox News hire Marie Harf, the woman is a human turnip, what value does she bring to the network?
— Bill Powers (@BillPowers9) January 24, 2017
I can’t look at Marie Harf and not remember that time she said #ISIS just needed jobs. Nobody takes this ditz seriously.
