Fox News has announced on Thursday that Trump campaign adviser Harlan Hill is no longer welcome on their news channel after he tweeted that Kamala Harris “comes off as an insufferable lying bitch.” He was right, especially about her lies.
Kamala Harris comes off as such an insufferable lying bitch. Sorry, it’s just true.
— HARLAN Z. HILL 🇺🇸 (@Harlan) October 8, 2020
“We have no intention of booking him as a guest on any of our platforms,” a Fox News Media spokesperson said in a statement to The Daily Beast the morning after Hill’s tweet was posted during the vice presidential debate.
Though his use of the word “bitch” may be a bit of overkill, to anyone who actually watched the debate last night without blinders on, Kamala Harris did come off as insufferable, and definitely lied on multiple occasions.
According to The Daily Beast, Hill has made at least 47 guest appearances on Fox News or Fox Business programs since December 13th, 2017. During the 2016 Democratic primary, Hill was a Bernie Sanders supporter, but later became a fan of President Trump.
In a subsequent text about the controversy over his tweet, Hill wrote: “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. I tweeted what I tweeted and I’d tweet it again.”
Harris’ Lies Mainstream News Won’t Report
Kamala Harris was asked about her and her running mate Joe Biden’s flip-flopping on the issue of fracking. During the Democrat debates, Biden said there would be “no more” fracking if he was elected president.

But Joe Biden suddenly took a pro-fracking stance when he was speaking to a crowd in Pennsylvania. “I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again. I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me,” the former vice president said.
At a previous presidential town hall, Harris said: “There’s no question I’m in favor of banning fracking, so yes. And starting — and starting with what we can do on day one around public lands, right? And then there has to be legislation, but yes — and this is something I’ve taken on in California. I have a history of working on this issue.”
During last night’s vice presidential debate, Harris claimed: “Joe Biden will not ban fracking. That is a fact.”
“Look, Sen. Harris, you’re entitled to your own opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts. You yourself said on multiple occasions when you were running for president that you would ban fracking,” VP Pence replied.
2) Abraham Lincoln
Did Kamala Harris knowingly and blatantly lie about Lincoln’s Supreme Court choice while the Senate was out of session, or is the @TheDemocrats debate prep team REALLY that stupid/bad? With this crew it is hard to tell.

Harris either blatantly lied, or was given bad information by her debate prep team when she tried to use Abraham Lincoln as justification for not confirming Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
“You want to talk about packing the court, let’s have that discussion. Abraham Lincoln was up for re-election and there was a Supreme Court seat vacant with 27 days to go. Honest Abe decided to wait till the election” claimed Harris, while avoiding the actual question about whether she supports court-packing.
In reality, in October 1864, Abraham Lincoln did not send a nominee to the Senate because the Senate was out of session until December. He did send his nominee, Salmon P. Chase, to the Senate during the second day of the new session, where he was confirmed that same day.
3) The Charlottesville Lie
Kamala Harris brought up another talking point of the left’s which is a blatant lie. The “very fine people” hoax.
“[Trump], on the issue of Charlottesville, where people were peacefully protesting the need for racial justice where a young woman was killed, and on the other side, there were neo-Nazis carrying tiki torches, shouting racial epithets, antisemitic slurs. And Donald Trump, when asked about it, said there were fine people on both sides,” Harris claimed.
Dave Rubin, a political commentator who refers to himself as a “classical liberal”, shared the clip from Trump’s Charlottesville press conference that the mainstream media deceptively edits out of their “very fine people” hoax:

Vice President Pence refuted the lie immediately, stating: “You know, I think this is one of the things that makes people dislike the media so much in this country. That you selectively edit, just like Sen. Harris did, comments that President Trump and I and others on our side of the aisle make. Sen. Harris conveniently omitted after the president made comments about people on either side of the debate over monuments, he condemned the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists, and has done so repeatedly.”
For further reference on the subject, here is a 2:20 long supercut of President Trump condemning white supremacy at least 17 times:

4) Biden’s Tax Plan
“We saw enough of it in last week’s debate, but I think this is supposed to be a debate based on facts and truth, and the truth and the fact is Joe Biden has been very clear. He will not raise taxes on anybody who makes less than $400,000 a year,” Harris said.
“Joe Biden said twice in the debate last week that he’s going to repeal the Trump tax cuts. That was tax cuts that gave the average working family two thousand dollars in a tax break every single year,” Vice President Pence replied.
This clip of the debate from MRCTV shows Pence calling her out on raising taxes, and also shows proof of Hill’s claim that Kamala Harris came off as “insufferable” during the debate, as she smirks, laughs, and repeatedly chastises the vice president saying: “I’m speaking!”

5) COVID “Hoax”
“The president said coronavirus was a hoax,” Harris lied.
As with the Charlottesville lie, the left takes President Trump’s statement out of context. The president did not say that COVID was a hoax, he said that the Democrats’ politicization of the virus was a hoax.
What Trump actually said was: “Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. You know that, right? Coronavirus. They’re politicizing it. They tried the impeachment hoax. … And this is their new hoax.”
He continued, clarifying his statement: “Hoax [is] referring to the action that they take to try and pin this on somebody, because we’ve done such a good job. The hoax is on them, not — I’m not talking about what’s happening here. I’m talking what they’re doing. That’s the hoax.”

In a clip of Sean Hannity’s show posted to Fox News’ YouTube channel entitled “Hannity: Kamala Harris’ ‘cringeworthy’ debate was packed with lies”, Hannity delves deeper into Harris’ record of lies:
Harlan Hill Was Right
With all of this evidence, Hill was definitely correct in his criticism of Harris as “insufferable” and “lying”, and Fox News was wrong to ban him.
Hill tweeted this afternoon about the backlash over his statements, saying that people are allowed to “say the most vile things about Trump AND his family,” but Kamala Harris is off limits.
You can say the most vile things about Trump AND his family, but don’t you dare speak ill of Queen Kamala
