Yet another Fox News personality accused of sexual misconduct: report

Published

on

On Tuesday, The Daily Beast reported that Tyrus, the former WWE wrestler who hosted Fox Nation’s “un-PC,” was dismissed after co-host Britt McHenry filed a sexual harassment complaint with Fox News management.

Tyrus had reportedly send McHenry multiple lewd, unwanted text messages — ironically, something that he himself had warned his viewers never to do on his show: “Something could go wrong … You could go from sending a message about lunch to sitting in HR.”

Born George Murdoch, Tyrus previously served as a bodyguard for Snoop Dogg and was a frequent guest on Greg Gutfeld’s Fox News show, where Gutfeld endearingly called him his “massive sidekick.”

The incident marks the latest in a series of sexual misconduct scandals at Fox News. The late chairman and CEO Roger Ailes was forced out of the network in 2016 over harassment allegations, followed the next year by primetime megastar Bill O’Reilly after it emerged that he had paid out millions of dollars in settlements to women for inappropriate behavior. Fox commentator Eric Bolling was also fired after his colleagues complained about lewd text messages.

“While we are not at liberty to discuss the details of any employee matter, we follow strict protocols when matters such as these are brought to our attention, and we make no exceptions. The process works because of the extensive systems and measures we have instituted. This situation was independently investigated and we consider the matter resolved. We respect the confidentiality of all involved,” a spokesperson for Fox News said in a statement.

He explained that in the past he's tried to explain that previous presidents like Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan and Andrew Jackson were the worst American presidents given what they did to persist the Civil War, the genocide of Native Americans and other acts. They were "openly siding [with] white supremacy and causing a civil war," which he said he thought was "far worse than anything Trump could do."

Trump’s dangerous mental condition grows worse as America faces devastating crises: Yale psychiatrist

Published

on

A nation most afflicted with a mental health problem is the least likely to address it.  I am speaking of the mental health, or lack thereof, of the president.  His psychological impairments have been deadly through action and inaction, and are now promoting police brutality through pronouncements such as, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” while marking protesters as “thugs”.
