Conservative pundit Mark Levin had some choice words Tuesday for Fox News in regards to its coverage of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
Levin, a supporter of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), went off on Fox News for its treatment of Trump, starting with the network’s refusal to give context to Cruz’s meltdown over Trump’s floating of an unsubstantiated National Enquirer story about Cruz’s father.
Levin specifically targeted Fox’s “The Five” for not clearing up the conspiracy theory that Cruz’s father was photographed with Lee Harvey Oswald around the time of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, calling the network a “Donald Trump Super PAC.”
“They may be laughing today, but they’re going to be rubbing their own faces in their own feces, I’ll tell you that, after this general election, because they have humiliated themselves,” Levin said. “Does Donald sound like he’s cutting a joke?”
During his tirade, Levin took shots at “Fox and Friends” and “Outnumbered” for taking it easy on Trump and for not asking follow-up questions about the “ludicrous” article.
“And what the hell is with the hosts on the ‘Fox and Friends’ show? They didn’t even challenge Trump!” Levin said. “Not a damn question! Nothing! Zero!”
Levin had no love for Trump and his surrogates’ glib attitude either, saying Trump is doing “a hell of a pathetic job” of uniting the Republican Party.
“They think this is funny?” he asked. “We are going to get our asses kicked in the general election, ladies and gentlemen!”
A Fox News spokesperson did not immediately respond Wednesday morning to a request for comment from TPM.
