The Young Turks had fighting words for Fox News’ mainstay Sean Hannity.
“That guy’s a big blockhead,” host Cenk Uygur said on his progressive web show Friday. “I mean, it’s, he has no logic, he has no rationality, it’s super-easy to dismiss him… If he wants to have me on [his show], great, I’ll kick his a** all day long.”
Urgur’s comments stemmed from a breakdown of a recent explosive interview Hannity had with Yousef Munayyer, the executive director of the pro-Palestinian Jerusalem Fund.
When Hannity asked Munayyer whether Hamas was a terrorist organization, Munayyer declined to answer the question with a simple yes or no, prompting rage from Hannity.
“What part of this can’t you get through your thick head?” Hannity exclaimed at one point. “Is Hamas a terrorist organization?”
Uygur slammed Hannity’s treatment of his Palestinian guest, and questioned whether Hannity would engage in open dialogue.
“If [Hannity] doesn’t have the power to cut your mic,” Uygur asked, “you think that p***y could ever dare to get in a real debate where he doesn’t control the mic?”
