Fox News Bans Trump Campaign Adviser After His Attack on Kamala Goes ‘Too Far’

Trump campaign adviser Harlan Z. Hill was banned from Fox News’ airwaves after insulting Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris in harsh terms.

The attack: During the vice presidential debate last Wednesday, Hill tweeted: “Kamala Harris comes off as such an insufferable lying bitch. Sorry, it’s just true.”

Amid backlash, Hill, a D.C.-based public relations consultant, was unapologetic, counterpunching his Twitter critics and doubling– and tripling-down on his remarks.

Canceled: Fox News told the Beast on Thursday that Hill, a frequent guest on the network, was no longer welcome.

  • “We have no intention of booking him as a guest on any of our platforms,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
  • Other cable news networks and companies downplayed or denied Hill’s avowed ties to them.
  • The Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment.

Who’s the monster?: Hill’s remarks about Harris, a California senator and a black woman, were an unusually vulgar expression of widespread sentiment on the right.

  • President Donald Trump said in a Fox Business interview on Thursday that Harris was a “monster” during the debate with Vice President Mike Pence.
  • Meanwhile, many liberals celebrated as feminist triumphs the same quips and smirks that irritated conservatives, and derided her critics, along with Pence, as motivated by sexism or racism.

Not sorry: Hill, for his part, remained uncowed even after the corporate denunciations.

“Kamala Harris was extraordinarily disrespectful to the vice president last night, lied to the American people repeatedly on The Biden/Harris platform, and was just generally unlikable and smug,” Hill texted the Daily Beast on Thursday. “I tweeted what I tweeted and I’d tweet it again.”

“I appreciate my relationship with Fox News over the last 5 year,” he told Mediate in a statement on Thursday. “They have been very good to me and I will always appreciate the chance they gave me to build a platform.”
