Fox News contributor and Barstool Sports host Francis Ellis has been caught on a hot mic criticizing Fox and its stars, accusing them of ‘trafficking in hate’.
Ellis appeared on Monday night’s edition of Jesse Watters’ 7pm show, and the following day was asked by a Barstool Sports co-host how it went.
Ellis said he wasn’t happy with his performance, but said his wife reassured him that it was not important.
Ellis said he realized she was right, because the network was spreading division.
He added that he worried Fox News viewers would not realize he was joking when he referenced ‘Democrats eating children beneath pizza shops.’
The clip was mistakenly published by Barstool Sports, before it was taken down.
The audio was obtained by Mediaite, which aired it in full.
