Why Do You Think Fox News Deleted This Tweet?

Has the atmosphere of sexual harassment extended past Roger Ailes at Fox News?
Why Do You Think Fox News Deleted This Tweet?

Well, well, well.

It may not be just Roger Ailes who is a little bit inappropriate, just a little.

Fox and Friends deleted this off their twitter account very quickly. Hey, I'm not accusing Bil Hemmer of anything, but this is not a good look for the network.

As Travis says, maybe this pic is not doing Fox News any favors after the abrupt exit of their commander and chief, Roger Ailes?

A NY Times report and Gabriel Sherman report that the culture Roger Ailes nurtured there has spread past himself.

And is it a surprise to you that Donald Trump defended Roger Ailes on MTP yesterday?

"I can tell you that some of the women that are complaining, I know how much he's helped them. And even recently," the Republican presidential nominee told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd. "And when they write books that are fairly recently released, and they say wonderful things about him. And now all of a sudden they're saying these horrible things about him."

Trump continued, "It's very sad. Because he's a very good person. I've always found him to be just a very, very good person. And by the way, a very, very talented person. Look what he's done. So I feel very badly."
