Fired Contributor Rips Fox News For Hypocrisy, Identifies Hosts Who Had Affairs and Hung With Strippers

Kevin Jackson was swiftly fired as a Fox News contributor last week after he unleashed a torrent of tweets that, amongst other nuttery, referred to Brett Kavanaugh‘s accusers as “Lying skanks.”

The pro-Trump radio host spoke out about his firing on Joe Piscopo‘s radio show Monday morning and ripped Fox News for apparent hypocrisy.

The interview naturally kicked off with a defense of Bill Cosby, who has been accused of drugging, coercing, sexually assaulting or raping 60 women, and was just sentenced to at least three years in prison for a 2004 sexual assault.

Jackson said “icon” Cosby now “sits in prison over 40-50 year ago allegations” because “some lying piece of crap leftist feminist who will say whatever they pay them to say or do.”

“Fox is dumb,” Jackson added, before claiming that Fox News tried to have him say something about his tweets to save his job.

“I could have said something to save my job. Fox was like ‘Yeah you want to say this or do that?’ Hell no!” Jackson said. “I could still have a job at Fox, if I wanted to say the right thing.”

Jackson declined to elaborate on his conversations with Fox. When reached for comment, he told Mediaite: “I have nothing to say to you”.

On Piscopo’s show, Jackson eventually turned his ire towards what he cast as hypocrisy at Fox News.

“Ed Henry was hanging out with strippers while he was married,” Jackson said, before falsely claiming Henry, Fox News’ chief national correspondent, has a show on the network.

Jackson continued: “Jesse Watters, who just recently divorced his wife, or is in the process, and he’s hanging out with some young chick that he did.”

“If that’s what Fox decides they want to have on, congratulations to them,” he said.

Henry took time off from the network in 2016 after tabloids reported on an alleged affair with a Las Vegas stripper. Fox News host Jesse Watters, meanwhile, is currently divorcing his wife after an affair.

Jackson also expanded on his attacks on Kavanaugh’s accusers, calling Christine Blasey Ford a “lying piece of crap.” He implored Piscopo’s listeners to look up the definition of “skank.”

In his tweets from Friday, Jackson derided Ford and the other women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in explicit terms, calling them “skanks.”

In one tweet, he said Ford’s “academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY!” “Dang girl, stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!” he wrote.

“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor,” a network spokesperson told Mediaite hours after Jackson’s tweets. “His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of FOX News.”
