This morning it was announced that KT McFarland, a Fox News national security analyst [Ed. note: Fox News terminated McFarland’s contract in the wake of the appointment] and Reagan administration official will serve as Donald Trump’s Deputy National Security Advisor. Well, she also tried to run against Hillary Clinton when Clinton ran for reelection to the Senate in 2006. She lost the GOP primary to John Spencer. But along the way she … well, I don’t quite know what to call it. But in addition to a seemingly lifelong penchant for dubious self-promotion and resume inflation McFarland claimed that Clinton was so worried about her candidacy that she sent secret helicopters to spy on her house in the Hamptons and also cased her apartment Manhattan. “Hillary Clinton is really worried about me, and is so worried, in fact, that she had helicopters flying over my house in Southampton today taking pictures.”
McFarland’s bio also says this: “Ms. McFarland held national security posts in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan Administrations: as an aide to Dr. Henry Kissinger on the NSC Staff (1970-76);” McFarland was born in 1951, making her either 18 or 19 when she went to work as an aide to Kissinger in 1970.
