It's only his fourth day on the job as the White House's de-facto communications director — he was just announced as President Trump's deputy chief of staff for communications — and former Fox News executive Bill Shine will ride on Air Force One with Trump to his Montana rally tonight, per a White House official familiar with the hiring process.

Why it matters: By bringing Shine to Montana, Trump could easily veer off-script and instead make the rally — which is supposed to be about GOP Senate candidate Matt Rosendale — about himself and his new hire.
