Disney Star Joins White House Press Team

WATCH LIVE: White House expected to be asked about Stormy Daniels, Russia and gun violence marches

You might recognize Caroline if you ever watched Zendaya's hit Disney Channel show, Shake It Up, which aired from 2010-2013.

While attending Claremont McKenna College in California, the former child star was super active in extracurricular social justice programs and completed multiple political internships, including one at the White House.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told CNN in a statement, "Caroline Sunshine was a White House intern". She's joining the team as a press assistant.

In case you were wondering about the kind of top-tier talent the Donald Trump White House is interested in bringing in to lead the country through a particularly tough time, don't worry because its latest hire is a. oh, uh. a former Disney Channel star. She was also in the 2010 film "Marmaduke", among other roles.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, who appeared on Mr Trump's reality show The Apprentice, worked at the Office of Public Liaison until her departure was announced late previous year.

The White House has been riddled with staff departures and sackings in recent months.

"Prior to her internship at the White House, Caroline interned for the Office of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the College Republican National Committee and the California Republican Party", Walters said. In fact, the 22-year-old Disney alum has more experience than first daughter Ivanka Trump, a lifestyle entrepreneur who has been serving as a senior White House adviser to her father.

Former CNBC host Larry Kudlow has become Trump's chief economic advisor and former Fox News analyst John Bolton has been appointed as president's National Security Advisor.
