Fox’s Brit Hume Draws Fire for Dismissing Trump Accuser Who Works as a Porn Star

brit humeFox News’ Brit Hume is taking some heat on Saturday night, due what appears to be a dismissive tweet about the latest woman to accuse Donald Trump of sexually abusing her.

Earlier today, Jessica Drake appeared with Gloria Allred to make the charge that the 2016 GOP candidate treated her inappropriately during an encounter together. Drake is open about her work as an adult film actress, and she told reporters that about 10 years ago, Trump invited her to a hotel room where he started hugging and kissing her and other women without their consent.

Drake said that Trump ended up offering her $10,000 to come to his room again, even as she repeatedly told him no. Drake alleged that Trump made further attempts to pressure her into meeting with him, including an offer to fly on his jet when she tried to decline his advances by saying she had to head to Los Angeles.

Since Drake works as a pornographic actress, it was on that point that Hume questioned her account of being subjected to Trump’s advances.

Unfortunately for Hume, this tweet didn’t quite get the best reception ever:

Hume ended up putting out a new tweet to explain what he meant with his first one:

Even so, Hume wound up arguing about his tweet even further with a back-and-forth with Daily Beast editor Jason Miller:
