Ex-Disney Channel star Caroline Sunshine now joins White House press team

29 March, 2018, 02:30 | Author: Mable Gonzales

According to a spokeswoman, Ms Sunshine has worked for the office of Kevin McCarthy, the House majority leader, and was once an intern...

Sunshine reportedly applied for her internship through the official White House website. And she's been selfie-ing in Washington, D.C. since at least 2016.

A former star on the Disney Channel is joining President Donald Trump's White House team as a press aide. It only makes sense that the White House would try to recruit from other television sources, and the latest hire comes from the Disney Channel.

The actress also gained fame for her role alongside Zendaya as Tinka Hessenheffer in "Shake It Up". It was about teen dancers and had a three year run. Though she is best known for her acting career, it's not her first job in politics. In college, she was involved with the American Enterprise Institute and an active member of her school's Model United Nations team. In 2010, she had her breakout role in the film Marmaduke.

And Lora Davis added, "I'm super-proud of Bailey and the action and the stand that she's taking over this". She has started a movement called #leveltheplayingfield - one that treats all members of the team equally.

CNN said Sunshine has a healthy social media presence with more than 500,000 Twitter followers and another 235,000 on Instagram.

A reality television star himself as former host of The Apprentice, President Donald Trump has previously appointed television personalities to government roles, with White House National Economic Council Larry Kudlow a former CNBC host, and Apprentice victor Omarosa Manigault-Newman serving as White House aide for little over a year.

And Sunshine has tweeted and retweeted a number of times about immigrants becoming citizens, which could prove interesting given the Trump administration's hardline stance on the issue.
