Fox News bans contributor after he calls Harris an "insufferable lying b*tch"

Fox News Media announced Thursday that Trump campaign adviser Harlan Z. Hill, a self-described Washington public relations and political consultant, is no longer welcome on their air after he tweeted that Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris “comes off as an insufferable lying bitch.”

“We have no intention of booking him as a guest on any of our platforms,” a Fox News Media spokesperson said in a statement to The Daily Beast, the morning after Hill—a frequent Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network guest over the past five years—unleashed his misogynistic attack on the Black California senator during her debate with Vice President Mike Pence.

Hill’s tweet—which was on-brand with President Donald Trump’s repeated claim on Thursday morning to Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo that Harris is “a monster”—provoked immediate condemnation along with around 6,000 retweets and 6,300 likes from Trump partisans.

It also received sharp responses from, among others, former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson and former paid contributor Julie Roginsky—both of whom sued the channel claiming sexual harassment and discrimination and received monetary settlements.
