Yesterday, Democrats spent a large part of their day mocking President Trump on social media after it was erroneously reported that former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) rejected the offer to join Trump’s legal team.
As usual—they were wrong.
The former pitbull of Congress has agreed to make a return to D.C, to defend President Trump against efforts by unhinged Democrat lawmakers to impeach him. This time, however, Gowdy doesn’t have to worry about reaching across the aisle.
The formerly conservative-leaning Fox News wasted no time in firing their new political contributor, Trey Gowdy. The popular former Congressman was a big hire for the network.
On Wednesday, a Fox News spokesperson sent a statement to The Hollywood Reporter that read, “Trey Gowdy has been terminated and is no longer a contributor.”
As Gowdy joins President Trump’s team as an outside legal counsel, the network is separating from him.
Axios reported Wednesday morning that Gowdy “is expected to appear on TV to advocate on behalf of the president.”
Television networks covet former politicians to provide on-air analysis as contributors but generally cut ties with them if they re-enter the political fray.
