Fox Nation host Britt McHenry has filed a lawsuit against her employer, Fox News, and a handful of her colleagues at the network, claiming she was repeatedly sexually harassed by her former co-host and was retaliated against for coming forward.

McHenry’s complaint alleges that last year she was sent several sexually explicit text messages from her former co-host George Murdoch — also known as Tyrus — and that when she reported the inappropriate behavior, Fox “punished the victim and rewarded the harasser.”

On Tuesday, McHenry tweeted, “I am standing up for myself, for women and for what’s right. I have maintained the same allegations because the truth doesn’t change. I feel for any sexual harassment victim who has their story and evidence dismissed, doubted and not believed.”

A Fox News spokesperson reacted to news of McHenry’s lawsuit, telling The Washington Post, “As we have previously stated, Ms. McHenry’s allegations have been fully investigated and we are confident our actions will be deemed entirely appropriate in litigation.”

Tom Claire, the attorney for Tyrus, told USA Today his client “looks forward to having a public forum in the court system to clear his name from the smear campaign that has been waged against him in the media.”

McHenry’s complaint lists numerous previous sexual harassment scandals at Fox News, and stated that “In practice, Fox News remains a sanctuary for sexual harassers, coddling and enabling men who abuse female employees.” The plaintiff also claims that she was labeled as “drama” by another colleague after she complained about Tyrus.

Fox News has, indeed, had some documented cases of sexual harassment in the past. McHenry has, indeed, had some drama in the past.

While working as a reporter at ESPN in 2015, a video of McHenry chewing out and demeaning a tow lot employee went viral. In the footage, McHenry can be seen telling the worker, “Do you feel good about your job? So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing? Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?”

McHenry was laid off along with dozens of other ESPN employees in 2017. She later claimed she was let go because of her conservative political views.

its not fair that a lot of these women can get these jobs based on how they look and not because of some talent they bring to the company... then because they primp themselves up to look so good, men, because we are programed to be attracted to the best looking women of our species, do or say things that could be used against us like this. Id love to get hired based just on my looks then have all these women be attracted to me. id stay quiet and enjoy the attention AND the good pay check....unless of course, the women were al old fat and ugly! lol..

Another dopey idiot looking for a payout. How bad were these supposed texts? did she keep them? She should have... if so, we should see them. I bet they aren't half or 1/4 as bad as she says...probably all just jokes he forwarded. This society is really starting to suck more and more, everyone is so ready to sue everyone else we cant do anything any more. not even tell a joke!

Just one more poor me of the metoo group. I wouldn’t be surprised, that Tyrus did what she claims. I never have understand why Tyrus landed a gig on Fox News. I guess his race was at play. I say send both of them packing!

Abused now the whole concept of look at what a few other women were able to get here on Fox for saying this so why not me? What I am seeing as an older woman who worked as a nurse and I saw all kinds of relationships brought on by the women also? So just wonder where this ends. So much that can be consensual and then not work and guess what happens. Go after the money if it is there. My local plumber is not going to be sued? I do not even know of this woman. Something stinks here. Now this movies is out on a few who said they had a problem but like some use

She was not the greatest employee FOX ever had. She is annoyed and in the fashion of today she is suing. It is to far in the past to start up the case now. Soros is probably paying her for beefing up her story. If she did not enjoy the sexually explicit emails, she was not forced to read them. Is the Murdoch the son of the wealthy Murdoch? I heard a couple of weeks ago in the news he is a trouble maker. Why not just let him go, if his "Daddy" does not protest and add more idiots to FOX staff. Shep is gone, Paul Ryan will cause trouble, Bill O'Reilly was a mistake they cannot seem to bring back in good light. FOX really did get screwed from the top money....Ailes is still kibitzing from above. Mean man. They really should keep FOX FAIR AND BALANCED. We the People used to thrive on it. It was one against all rivals and doing well until Soros et al.

Everyone it seems these days has been "sexually harassed." Probably 85% is pure bullshit. Shake hands with a woman for too long, and she'll make accusations. I like women, but I sure do not trust them, I'll stay with my right hand, it'll never accuse me of anything.

I will wait for the truth, whatever it may be, but there is more to this story, no doubt. She seems to be the type that can be all flirty, sexy, and then gets triggered by a flirty, sexy reaction or very mad if ignored - in the olden days, we called such girls "prick-teasers".

Judging from the photo of her and Tyrus the dress she was wearing was waaaay too short and she knew it because she had to lay her arm down on her legs to avoid the peep show.

I remember reading about this killjoy. I don't believe one word out of her mouth. LEAVE TYRUS ALONE.

Yeah. She seems to have a thing against people who she thinks are beneath her. And I think that her political views were not the real reason why she was fired

This lying bitch is looking for money. She has minimum talent and her only way to score is to use the "I was sexually harassed" bullshit line. Bottom line she is a blond bimbo that got by on using her looks to sleep to the top. Now she wants to make a score using her willingness to lie to get money. Sounds like a classic dem/lib scum bag. Hope she gets exposed for what she is...a liar. Look at her behavior to other people when at ESPN. Shoot the bitch!

Never heard of her. Obviously not going anywhere in her career so time to throw those victim cards and get settlements on the way out the door. North American women are out of control and self destructive. The princess demands to be the center of attention or else. ((( TANTRUMS))) Only money will temporarily shut them up until they demand more.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
