Fox News Shuns Trump's Biggest Defender
RELATED: The 6 Most Controversial Fox News Personalities
The former Secret Service agent is universally regarded as one of the president's most forceful defenders.
Bongino's remarks have deeply resonated with the president, who insiders say reveres the frequent cable news guest.
As of this report, the details of the alleged incident remain murky. (Mediaite)
“He became unglued and was banned from this show,” a source told The Daily Beast regarding the incident. “He’s not someone who would typically be on the news shows.”
Fox News did not comment on the Bongino drama.
While it is not clear what exactly Bongino did, it seems to have been enough to get him off shows on Fox News that focus on reporting, rather than opinion, as has not appeared on a hard news show on the network in months. Instead, Bongino typically appears on Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, and Fox & Friends in interviews where he staunchly defends the president.
One White House official confirmed Trump likes Bongino because "he speaks the president’s language."
Bongino came within 1.5 percentage points of toppling incumbent Democrat John Delaney in the 2014 race for Maryland's 6th congressional district.
It's unclear if he intends to run for office again.
