Disgraced former Rep. Vito Fossella is now co-hosting a pro-Donald Trump television show on Newsmax.

According to the New York Post, Fossella left his consulting job at former Sen. Al D’Amato Park Strategies Firm to co-host “Table Talk” on Newsmax.

“For too long, the American people have been ignored,” Fossella said on the debut episode of the show, according to the Post.

During the show, Trump supporters from swing counties explain why they love the incoming president. 

Fossella said he has no plans to return to office.

“Let’s give these folks a chance to tell their story,” he said.

Newsmax said Fossella and his co-host will “sit down for dinner, break bread and engage in organic conversations with American families.”

Fossella resigned from representing Staten Island after a drunk driving rap revealed he had a secret second family and led to a House Ethics investigation.
