Fox News contributor Kevin Jackson has been fired for a Twitter tirade in which he calls Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers “lying skanks” and tells professor Christine Blasey Ford to “stop opening your legs and open a book,” according to a Thursday Mediate report.  

“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor,” a Fox spokesperson told Mediaite. “His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of FOX News.”
