Conservative political pundit Mark Levin predicted that the American people will continue to dislike the news media if “clowns” like CNN’s Jim Acosta are mainstays in the White House press corps.
Levin made the comments during his appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show on Thursday night.
“Over 65 million people, give or take, voted for Donald Trump for president of the United States. I wrote this down. Various press outlets, reporters, hosts or their guests, have called millions and millions of Americans Nazis, racists, deranged, cultists, deplorables and even worse,” Levin stated. “How do the press in this country justify calling tens of millions of people such outrageous names?”
“The D.C. press corps today is the least professional press corps in my lifetime. They think that their job is to make it impossible for the president to function, to sabotage him and to advance the cause of the ideologues, to advance the cause of a rogue prosecutor by the name of Mueller. And so the press really needs to be circumspect, take a look at itself. It won’t,” Levin added.
Levin was not the only guest on Hannity’s show on Thursday that railed on Acosta. He also had Eric Trump, the son of the president, on to discuss CNN’s White House correspondent. (RELATED: Eric Trump And Sean Hannity Hit Back At CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘There’s No Moral Outrage’)
“As long as they keep putting clowns like Jim Acosta out there, who is a drama queen of sorts, and who like to report on themselves and talk about themselves, as long as it’s impossible to tell a late-night comedian from Jake Tapper, and Jake Tapper from the porn star and all the rest of it, this is going to be the reaction of the American people,” he continued.
