Vice President Kamala Harris’ former chief spokeswoman Symone Sanders is joining MSNBC as an anchor, the network announced Monday.
Sanders left the White House in December and was one of the first in a slew of aides to depart Harris’s team. Prior to her departure, Sanders was in charge of Harris’ messaging – a task marred with missteps as the vice president has come under fire for numerous commentsthroughout her time in office.

Sanders will be hosting a new weekend show at MSNBC, according to The New York Times.
“I’m going to tell the truth, and sometimes the truth is critical,” Sanders said in a statement provided to the NYT. “This administration has its critics, just like everyone does — I have my critics — and we’re going to have those conversations.”
