Sean Hannity repeatedly ripped into Marco Rubio on his Fox News program Wednesday night, attacking the Florida senator for recent attacks on Donald Trump and saying his rhetoric was “beyond the pale” of acceptance in a presidential primary.
Hannity, who wrote in August that he would not point out “deficiencies” in any of the Republican candidates, said that someone “probably promised” Rubio “a lot of money” to take Trump on.
“That’s not the real Marco,” he repeatedly insisted.
Hannity’s chief contention was that Rubio’s criticism of Trump over his Ku Klux Klan flap was not fair and that his jokes about the billionaire had gone too far.
Throughout his program, Hannity hosted a panel of guests who shared his point of view. The general theme: attack Rubio, defend Trump.
Moments later on Rubio: “What I’m watching here is the kitchen sink, scorched Earth, MMA bare-knuckle brawl, thermo-nuclear attacks."
