• Levin Blasts ‘Hypocrite’ Krauthammer, ‘Obsessive’ Hume for Hateful Attacks on Cruz and Trump

    Conservative talk show host Mark Levin blasted Fox News’ Charles Krauthammer and Brit Hume Wednesday for their “hate” of Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

    Levin pointed out that Krauthammer is hypocritical for criticizing Trump about switching positions, when Krauthammer worked as a speechwriter for Walter Mondale, the Democratic vice-presidential nominee in 1980 and Democratic presidential nominee in 1984 who ran against Ronald Reagan.

    “He’s an incredibly brilliant man, as are many of the people on that stage – incredibly,” Levin said of Trump. “We got to sit here and listen to former Mondale staffers – a Mondale staffer says, ‘Well, he changes his view —’”

    “Here’s a guy – our friend Charles – who worked for Walter Mondale when Ronald Reagan was president, who supported Carter and Mondale against Reagan and Reagan,” he continued. “And he changed his view but apparently only he can change his view. And now he’s Mr. Conservative. OK, fine, fine – but you are a bit of a hypocrite.”

    Levin noted that his assessment of Krauthammer wasn’t personal, but Trump was still better than Mondale.

    “And I don’t know of anyone that has more hate for Donald Trump than Charles Krauthammer,” he said. “Let me just say this Charles: Trump is a thousand times better than Mondale, the guy you used to work for. Just a comment, nothing personal. And yet these guys are throwing bricks, they’re shooting arrows at everybody and if you say anything, ‘Oh no, I’ll never be invited back.’ I banned myself.”

    “Again, it’s not an attack on everyone,” Levin continued. “It’s not an attack on the network. Media Matters will get all excited. Mediaite will get all excited. Listen to what I say, not what liberals and kooks say what I say, please.”

    Levin argued that Fox News Channel senior political analyst Brit Hume has an “obsessive hate” for Cruz.

    “I don’t want to say this because I like the man, but he is exposing himself, so be it,” Levin said. “I don’t know of anybody that has more obsessive hate for Ted Cruz than Brit Hume at Fox. It’s not personal. I’m just telling you what I observe. Go ahead and read his – look, it’s open. Go ahead and read his Twitter comments. It’s incredible.”
