Fox News says it will no longer book a Trump campaign adviser as a guest on any of the network’s programs after he disparaged Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) online during her debate with Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday.

“We have no intention of booking him as a guest on any of our platforms,” a Fox News Media spokesperson told The Daily Beast in a statement Thursday regarding campaign adviser Harlan Hill.

“Kamala Harris comes off as such an insufferable lying b**ch. Sorry, it’s just true,” he wrote.

The Daily Beast inaccurately described Hill’s comments as a “misogynistic attack.” There is no evidence to suggest Hill was criticizing Harris because she is a woman. Also, in an apparent nod to identity politics, the outlet further noted Harris’ skin color, strongly hinting, without evidence, that Hill’s comment was racist.

In a follow-up tweet, perhaps after being notified of his ban on Fox News, Hill remained defiant, suggesting that the network continues to book guests who have been even more disparaging of President Donald Trump.

“You can say the most vile things about Trump AND his family, but don’t you dare speak ill of Queen Kamala. LMFAO,” he tweeted.

In a statement to The Daily Beast, Hill made no apologies while doubling down on his original tweet.

“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,” he said. “I tweeted what I tweeted and I’d tweet it again.”

To Hill’s point about the name-calling, hosts and guests on other networks including CNN and MSNBC have variously, and frequently, referred to President Trump as “Hitler,” a “racist,” “Mussolini,” a “dictator,” a “murderer,” and an “anti-Semite,” among others.

Coincidentally, during his opening monologue on Thursday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson used Harris as an example as he dissected the Democratic left’s use of identity politics “to win arguments” and gain influence.

“Identity politics is the most powerful political tool they have. Don’t take it at face value. There’s a purpose for it, and of course, identity politics is also a handy shield,” Carlson said, noting that Harris used the technique during Wednesday’s debate with Vice President Pence.

At one point, the VP mentioned that Democrats have knocked Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who is President Trump’s most recent Supreme Court nominee, for her Catholic beliefs.

Harris pushed back, saying she and Biden are “both people of faith,” adding “it’s insulting to suggest that we would knock anyone for their faith.”

“Oh, come on,” Carlson responded after airing the clip. “A ‘person of faith’ now? How? What exactly does Kamala Harris worship apart from power? Honestly, we’d like to know.”

“The progressive left understands race and gender and, yes, religious faith as a means to an end,” Carlson continued. “They’re identities. They don’t have independent meanings. They are tools used to win arguments and achieve power.

“Kamala Harris cycled through various identities” during her debate, Carlson charged, noting that on several occasions, she cut Pence off as he rebutted her by declaring, “I’m speaking.”

“In other words, ‘I’m a woman, that’s why you’re interrupting me,’” Carlson said. “Democrats thought that that was appealing. What world do they live in?”
