Former top Barack Obama White House aide Ben Rhodes is joining MSNBC and NBC News as a political contributor.
MSNBC’s media relations team tweeted out the announcement Saturday, saying Rhodes would make his NBC debut on Sunday on “Meet The Press.”
Rhodes’ official title in the Obama administration was Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, and he played key roles in numerous foreign policy decisions. He took heat in 2016 when he boasted in a New York Times profile of creating an “echo chamber” to sell the Iran nuclear deal and mocked Washington, D.C., reporters.
Who did not see that one coming? (wonder what the terms are?) Participate in a plot against elections and the US, and you get the analyst armchair at a major network. Right on the heels of Obama and Michele heading to Netflix, while Valerie Jarrett secured a seat on the board.
