Conservative Commentator Erick Erickson Leaving Fox News: ‘Neither Needed Nor Useful’
Mediaite ^ | December 18. 2017 | Aidan McLaughlin

The Resurgent’s Erick Erickson, a conservative commentator who has been a Fox News contributor since 2013, is leaving the network, according to Politico’s Jake Sherman.

Erickson, whose commentary has been both fiercely critical of President Donald Trump and his opponents, said he is leaving the network because his views don’t fit into any typical box.

“After five years at Fox News, I am leaving the network,” he said, per Sherman. “I am neither needed nor useful to the network and they know it too. I neither fit solidly as a Republican Trump supporter nor as an anti-Trump Democrat.”

"neither needed nor useful"

Well, he's right about that! I think I only saw him once or twice since he was announced as a FNC contributor. Maybe he was on more, but I just didn't see him.

Good riddance. The guys a pig. I don't know why he left the gig he had at Red State to join The Resurgent. It seems he has rendered himself useless and undesirable has a "conservative influence." No surprise...

Finally, a moment of self reflection and clarity.

A “conservative” who is not working hard to MAGA is definitely neither needed nor useful.

The common thread through all of the NeverTrump “conservatives” is support for open borders/amnesty.

I stopped watching Faux News a long time ago but I know this guy is an enemy of Trump so I’m sure Faux is sorry to see him go.

I think he would describe himself as a Christian first. In the few times that I've heard him on the radio, I think his faith drives his opinions and positions more than anything.

On August 7, 2015, Erickson had uninvited Donald Trump from a RedState gathering held in Atlanta.

#10: "The common thread through all of the NeverTrump “conservatives” is support for open borders/amnesty."

Yep, plus a love of military adventurism and "nation building".

Good riddance to bad rubbish. Bill Kristol can give him a job as the pool boy.
