Fox News contributor Kevin Jackson was fired Thursday by Fox for a truly offensive and reprehensible tweet about Judge Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct accusers.

During the Judiciary hearing Jackson tweets like this.

And then this.

I'm only surprised it took Fox News this long to dump a contributor who spread so much misinformation.

Jackson moronically told Fox News back in 2017 that Trump had already released his tax returns which as everybody knows is a damn lie.

"He's already released them. He's already released his taxes."

Jackson should have been fired for that one alone.

Fox News issued a statement: “His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of Fox News."
