This was Simmons on Fox and Friends right before he decided to stab his career as a conservative cable news guest right through the heart.MUST SEE: @genesimmons helps @JaniceDean with the weather! pic.twitter.com/EFfRQESNuq— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) November 15, 2017

Things seemed to be going well enough when Simmons jumped up from the Fox & Friends couch to help meteorologist Janice Dean do her weather report—a delighted Dean later posted video on her Twitter feed—and then sat on a panel with Bartiromo, who asked his views on the Harvey Weinstein sexual-misconduct scandal.
“The lunatics have taken over the insane asylum when respected business entities such as yourself ask guys that like to stick their tongues out,” Simmons answered, “what I think of Harvey Weinstein.”
“Okay, I’m a powerful and attractive man, and what I’m about to say is deadly serious,” he continued. “Men are jackasses. From the time we’re young we have testosterone. I’m not validating it or defending it.”
Maybe not, but within minutes he was demonstrating it. According to a knowledgeable Fox News source, Simmons showed up on the 14th floor to do a book-plugging interview with FoxNews.com’s entertainment section, but instead barged in on a staff meeting uninvited.
“Hey chicks, sue me!” he shouted, and then pulled open his red velvet shirt to reveal his chest and belly, according to the source. Then he starting telling Michael Jackson pedophilia jokes, and then bopped two employees on the head with his book, making derisive comments about their comparative intelligence according to the sound their heads made when struck.
“It was pretty severe,” the source said.
Simmons' behavior was reported up the chain to human resources and it was decided that he would be banned from Fox News for life, and that his prerecorded interview would NOT be shown.
So now the former home of Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly is banning physically abusive chauvinistic pigs from the building.
Look out Sean Hannity!
Update: Guess who had to weigh in as well.
And remember this is after she suggested that Al Franken should lost his job just yesterday.
"Hypocrisy, calling on line one."
