Ousted Fox News contributor Kevin Jackson went on the attack this week, slamming the conservative network for its apparent hypocrisy in firing him for “reprehensible” comments he made about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh‘s sexual assault accusers.
Jackson was immediately axed as a network contributor last week after an unhinged Twitter rant Thursday, in which he dubbed the women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault “lying skanks” and argued that “Leftist women are skanky for the most part.”
“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor,” a Fox News spokesman confirmed in a statement. “His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of FOX News.”
Jackson dished about his firing on Joe Piscopo‘s radio show Monday morning and wasted no time hitting back at his former employer. Before ripping into the network, however, the pro-Trump commentator lamented the fall of “America’s Dad” Bill Cosby, who now “sits in prison over 40-50 year ago allegations,” made by “some lying piece of crap leftist feminist who will say whatever they pay them to say or do.”
“Fox is dumb,” Jackson added, claiming the network tried to make him say something that would save his job.
“I’ll just give you some inside baseball,” he told Piscopo. “I could have said something to save my job. Fox was like ‘Yeah you want to say this or do that?’ Hell no! I could still have a job at Fox, if I wanted to say the right thing.”
Jackson, who regularly appeared on the network as a commentator or guest host, doubled down on his sexist tweets that he wrote during Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday, saying Monday he had to respond to the “nonsense” accusations Ford made during the nationally televised hearing.
In a tweet from last Thursday, Jackson claimed the academic problems Ford said she faced after the alleged sexual assault were the result of her “PROMISCUITY,” adding, “Dang girl, stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!”
The ex-contributor eventually turned his rage back toward the network during Monday’s radio appearance, pointing out the hypocrisy of allowing allegedly unfaithful men to keep their jobs as he is ousted.
“Ed Henry was hanging out with strippers while he was married,” Jackson said, before falsely stating that Henry, Fox News’ chief national correspondent, had a show on the network. According to The Daily Beast, the former chief White House correspondent took a leave of absence and a demotion in 2016 amid rumors he had an extramarital affair with a Las Vegas cocktail waitress.
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.”
Watters’ wife filed for divorce earlier this year after it was revealed the conservative host had an affair with one of his colleagues, the news site reported.
“If that’s what Fox decides they want to have on, congratulations to them,” Jackson said.
