Fox News host Dana Perino unloaded on Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) Tuesday, calling him a "destructive entity" in Washington, D.C.
Perino, who served as press secretary for President George W. Bush, was reacting to a jab Reid took at her former boss Monday.
"He's an absolutely poisonous figure in Washington, D.C. He's been a disaster for this country," Perino told host Hugh Hewitt.
"I think a lot of the dysfunction in Washington can be traced directly to his doorstep," she continued. "I think it is very good for the country, for the world, and especially for the Democrats that Harry Reid is retiring. I've never seen anything so abhorrent in my life as Harry Reid."

"And he is an equal opportunity basher, right? He goes after everybody," Perino added. "And I think it is so frankly disgusting, and I'm a pretty level-headed person. But that person, Harry Reid, has been the most destructive entity in Washington when it comes to stability. By far."
