Fired Fox News contributor calls out network hosts for cheating, defends ‘icon’ Bill Cosby

TV contributor Kevin Jackson, who was given the boot by Fox News last Thursday after calling Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual-assault accusers “lying skanks,” is lashing out at his former employer for allowing other hosts to stay, despite their extramarital transgressions.

“Fox is dumb,” the pro-Trump host told Joe Piscopo on his Monday morning radio show, adding that Fox News tried to have him say “something” in order to save his job, though he would not say exactly what.

“I’ll just give you some inside baseball,” Jackson said in the radio interview first reported by Mediaite. “I could have said something to save my job. Fox was like ‘Yeah, you want to say this or do that’?”

“I could still have a job at Fox, if I wanted to say the right thing,” he added.

Jackson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A Fox News spokeswoman said the executive he spoke of never told him he could save his job by saying something.

On Thursday, Jackson was promptly fired from Fox News after shaming Kavanaugh’s accusers on Twitter.

“Lying skanks are what these 3 women are, and we ALL know more,” Jackson wrote in one of the tweets, adding that “leftist women are skanky for the most part.”

In another tweet, he said that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s “academic problems,” which she said were triggered by the sexual assault, were actually the result of “her PROMISCUITY!”

“Dang girl, stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!” he tweeted.

Jackson argued that Fox News was being hypocritical for firing him while allowing two of its hosts to stay on despite their extramarital transgressions.

“Ed Henry was hanging out with strippers while he was married,” Jackson told Piscopo, referring to the network’s former chief White House correspondent who was demoted after In Touch Weekly reported that he was involved in an on-going affair with a Las Vegas hostess. Jackson also took a swipe at Fox News personality Jesse Watters, whose wife filed for divorce amid an alleged affair with a 25-year-old employee.

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

During the interview, Jackson also seemed to defend Bill Cosby, who was sentenced to at least three years in prison for a 2004 sexual assault and was accused of drugging, sexually assaulting or raping 60 women.

Jackson, who called Cosby an “icon,” said the comedian “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.”
