Fox News contributor fired after he tells Kavanaugh accuser Ford to 'stop opening your legs'
Ford, who has alleged that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when they were teenagers, appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday during a public testimony.
Fox News contributor Kevin Jackson, who called President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accusers "lying skanks", has been fired from the television network. Reports state that Jackson also attacked Kavanaugh's first accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and said that she should 'stop opening her legs'.
Ford, who has alleged that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when they were teenagers, appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday during a public testimony to lay down her account of the alleged assault.
The former Fox News contributor appeared to attack Ford throughout her testimony and even took his rant to Twitter, saying: "Wow, Christine Ford looks rode hard and put up wet, as we say in the country. Just peeked into this FARCE." Jackson wrote the tweet with the hashtag #ConfirmKavanaughNow. Shortly after this tweet, Jackson wrote another one calling Ford and two other women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct "lying skanks."
Jackson wrote: "Feminists are their own worst enemies, and enemy of women. Also, they want men to NEVER be believed. I'm not succumbing. TO HELL with the notion that women must be believed no matter what. Lying skanks is what these 3 women are, and we ALL know more."
The radio host, in another post, tweeted that Ford's "academic problems came from her promiscuity," referring to the Psychology professor's assertion that she struggled academically because of the trauma of the alleged assault.
"Dang girl, stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK," Jackson wrote about the clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California. Fox News, a few hours after Jackson's tweets, released a statement saying that he was fired from his position with the television network. A Fox News spokesperson said: "Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor. His comments on today's hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of Fox News."
Jackson's removal from the job has had no impact on him as he continued making derogatory comments about Ford and other liberal women in the country. "Leftist women are skanky for the most part. More will be sued and made to pay for their lies,' one of Jackson's tweets read. "Democrats always thank COWARDS for their "courage". Christine Blasey Ford is no hero," he added in his tweet.
Ford and Kavanaugh testified before the Senate committee on Thursday, where Ford reinstated her allegations against the Supreme Court nominee, saying that he allegedly attempted to rape her during a high school party in the early 1980s when she was 15, and Kavanaugh was 17.
Kavanaugh, however, denied all the allegations that he had never done this and was never at a party described by Ford. Three women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault so far, including Deborah Ramirez who has claimed that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drinking game in college and Julie Swetnick who has alleged that she saw Kavanaugh at parties where women were allegedly gang-raped, verbally abused and inappropriately touched during his time in Georgetown Preparatory School.
