Fox News cut ties with one of its contributors Thursday after he referred to the women accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault as “lying skanks.”
“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor,” a network spokesman confirmed in a statement. “His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of FOX News.”
In a lengthy Twitter rant, Jackson, a pro-Trump personality who regularly appeared on the conservative news network, condemned Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearings where senators pressed Kavanaugh about the allegations against him. So far, three women, including college professor Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, have come forward to accuse the judge of sexual misconduct.
The “Fox & Friends” guest host tweeted frantically as the hearings went on, using offensive and sexist language to describe Ford, who delivered an emotional testimony before the committee, and the other women, Deborah Ramirez, 53, and Julie Swetnick, 55, who made claims against Kavanaugh.
“#ChristineBlaseyFord’s academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY,” he wrote in one tweet. “Dang girl, stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK.”
In another, he argued feminists are their “own worst enemy” and the “enemy of women.”
“TO HELL with the notion that women must be believed no matter what,” Jackson added. “Lying skanks is what these 3 women are, and we all know more.”
He even made reference to accuser Julie Swetnick’s allegations that Kavanaugh and a friend were present at a party where she was drugged and gang-raped. Swetnick also alleged the judge would become sexually aggressive at high school parties where alcohol was involved.
“#Democrats latest Great Feminist hope against #Kavanaugh admits to attending 10 gang-bangs where Kavanaugh ‘waited his turn,’ ” Jackson wrote. “Something tells me #Swetnick wasn’t at this party for the DRINKS.”
Jackson later reacted to news of his firing, telling his 68,000 followers he has no hard feelings toward the network.
“I have NEVER lost a job, where God did’t provide something profoundly better,” he wrote. I have no animosity towards Fox, but for me, it’s their loss.”
Kavanaugh, who also testified before the committee Thursday, has repeatedly denied the allegations against him.
“I’m not questioning that Dr. Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time,” he told the senators. “But I’ve never done this. To her or to anyone. That’s not who I am. It is not who I was. I am innocent of this charge.”
