Dana Perino Smacks Trump Surrogates: 'I'm Done'

It's not clear whether it's Trump's latest revelations or this year at Fox News that has finally stripped Dana Perino's patience.
Views:

Hard to tell if the latest revelations about sexual harassment from Trump were the straw that broke Dana Perino's patience. All of the women who are still on air at Fox News have had a year when it comes to revelations of sexual harassment, and the fact that Roger Ailes jumped right over to help Trump with his election efforts can't be helping anyone's mood over there.

Friday on "The Five" Dana Perino was ready to take names on those who would defend Trump. And she openly criticized Trump's decision to call the women liars on the campaign trail as a truly stupid strategy:

DANA PERINO: I think he should take the WikiLeaks things, the e-mails he thinks are his favorites and he could do a dramatic interpretation and read them. He was up there for three hours giving a speech. I -- if you want people to focus on WikiLeaks talk about it. You can't stand up there and talk about your accusers, and insult them.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE: So you think, less defending and more go on the attack in terms of Hillary Clinton? He has done the disclaimer, denial.

PERINO: The other thing he said about Hillary Clinton is when she walked in front of him, he wasn't impressed! That's not impressive. And the Republican men that are defending this are really irritating me. I’ve been like Mount Vesuvius all day.

There are people like, you know who you are.

GUILFOYLE: She's going to come get you and we are going to lock you in the freight elevator.

ERIC BOLLING: That used to be a thing. the look -- was it the look?

PERINO: Yeah. you know who you are. Ben Carson. and other senators. Jeff Sessions.

JUAN WILLIAMS; You know what Ben Carson would say to you? Cut the mic.

PERINO: Cut the mic! Because women should “be seen and not heard.”

GREG GUTFIELD: Finally, you agree with me...

PERINO: After 20 years of defending these guys. I’m done.
