Former Disney Channel star Caroline Sunshine has traded her Mickey Mouse hat for a White House hard pass.
Sunshine, 22, is the newest member of President Trump’s White House press team.
The actress, who is best known for starring alongside Zendaya and Bella Thorne in Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up,” applied to the job as a press assistant and was accepted, Deadline reported.
Sunshine has been making the transition into politics for a while. She interned for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and the California Republican Party. She was also an active member of her school’s United Nations team. Before receiving the permanent job, Sunshine was an intern at the White House, The Hill reported.
Sunshine’s last television credit was in the 2017 Lifetime movie “Mommy, I Didn’t Do It,” according to IMDB.
Sunshine is the latest television star to join Trump’s White House. Former “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman was an aide to Trump and former CNBC host Larry Kudlow has been tapped to head the National Economic Council.
