After resigning over sexual harassment claims, Roger Ailes is reportedly advising Trump



Donald Trump is suffering badly in polls lately.  

Apparently, he's willing to take advice from anyone, even a former CEO who resigned in disgrace.

Trump is reportedly taking debate advice from Roger Ailes, who resigned in July after multiple reports of him sexually harassing Fox News employees, The New York Times reports, citing anonymous sources.

Two of the Times' sources Ailes could stick around past the debates. 

Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks denied Ailes was involved but said the two had been "friends for many years."

But Ailes has political experience. He was an advisor to Richard Nixon's campaign in 1968, where he took on an aggressive candidate and made him seem softer. He also worked with former presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush during their campaigns. 

Trump: Megyn Kelly 'Had Blood Coming Out of Her Eyes, Blood Coming Out of Her Wherever'

But Trump and Fox News haven't had the best relationship. His infamous "blood coming out of her wherever" comment was directed toward Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly

Many Twitter users weren't exactly happy with this plan.

Almost immediately, the joke that Ailes might be an alien spread.

What do you think of Ailes advising Trump?
