‘Poisonous’ ➠ Fox News Host Dana Perino Erupts On Harry Reid
In a recent exchange with syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt, Fox News Channel host Dana Perino took on the man she sees as a leading cause of dysfunction in D.C.
Hewitt sparked Perino’s rant by citing Reid’s reaction to likely presidential candidate Jeb Bush’s decision to support U.S. attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch. The retiring Senate minority leader said Bush “didn’t just show grace in doing that, he showed more common sense than his brother showed in eight years as president of the United States.”
“He’s an absolutely poisonous figure in Washington, D.C.,” she said. “He’s been a disaster for the country.”
Perino went on to assert that “a lot of the dysfunction in Washington can be traced directly to his doorstep,” adding that Reid’s impending departure from the U.S. Senate is cause for celebration.
“I think it is very good for the country, for the world, and especially for the Democrats that Harry Reid is retiring,” she said. “I’ve never seen anything so abhorrent in my life as Harry Reid.”
Insisting that he is an “equal opportunity basher” who “goes after everybody,” Perino shared her belief that Reid “has been the most destructive entity in Washington when it comes to stability – by far.” More
