Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison exploded during a live interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday, calling the Fox News host the "worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen" and a "shill for the Republican Party."

The Minnesota congressman was on the program to discuss President Barack Obama's remarks on the sequester when he launched into a tirade aimed at Hannity, who had said "The president is more concerned with fearmongering than finding a solution to the problem he created."

Ellison is the worst excuse for an American I have ever seen. So I’ll cut Hannity some slack.

True, but he’s more of a journalist than this muzzie is an American.

Hannity is now going to invite the GOP sage, Karl Rove, to put some ointment on his bruised ego.

“Hannity is not a journalist.”

You are correct, he is a news talker. Is that the sum total of your opinion on the thread?

If so, scratch on the break, put a quarter in the juke box.

Not at all. I was just adding to your point. I should have been clearer.

It’s amazing the depths these idiots plumb with a straight face. It can’t go on forever. And the blowback will be spectacular.

Ellison is a far left democrat, he’s black with a chip on his shoulder and he’s a muslim waiting for the Caliphate.

Why would anyone expect him to act like a decent human being?

If the idiot was not on TV, You wouldn’t know he was wacko.

Fox does a service by allowing wacko’s to rant and show their ass.

When I see people like this Ellison on TV, I cannot understand how our country reached such a low point. If thugs like this can get elected to congress, we are finished as a nation.

There was another thread about this in which many of the posters spent their time bashing Hannity. Hannity is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he’s not the racist anti-American muslim who holds a seat in congress.

Ellison gave up being “American” a long time ago. He is solidly an Islamic militant, and as such, is at one with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Mohamed Morsi, neither of which is notable for their allegiance to the United States.

It is not only the Senate where the art of filibustering is practiced. The Congressman was performing quite well, if the purpose was to shut down dialogue.

I was rather surprised he had not resorted to reading from a cookbook. This very technique was employed in the Senate some number of years ago, as I recall.

That is quite true. Hannity isn't the enemy here, but he's too easy to fillibuster. I'd like to see this steaming pile Ellison try this with the likes of Michael Savage. He'd be walking funny afterwords.

This POS is a convert from a religion of peace to a middle eastern death cult. He should not be allowed in the house of congres.

Ellison and others like him are what we get when we create minority congressional districts by gerrymandering. Others like him are Waters, Lee and the dumba$$ that said that if we moved to many troops and equipment to Guam, the island would tip over. Ellison is a mirror image of his constituents. They all are.

To be fair Hannity is a “shill for the Republican Party” - but then Øbongo “is more concerned with fearmongering than finding a solution to the problem he created”

I’d call it a draw ;-)

Given his choice of "religion" and his choice of friends how do you know he doesn't walk funny already? LOL

If this clown had grown up in my neighborhood he would have received a good school-yard lesson in manners. He’s nothing but yet another angry, ignorant black man. ONe has to wonder about the sewer of a district he comes from that they send such crap to represent them.

Savage? Seriously? Savage would never allow Ellison on his program. Savage only likes talking about himself.

I don’t particularly like Hannity but Ellison has to be the biggest horses ass I ever witnessed on a live interview. I bet 100% of his constituency is Black. (Politics being a reflection of culture)

I can’t stand Hannity. But in his defense, he has always pointed out that he is NOT a journalist.

With that said, Ellison could have made a better point if had said “Sean, having me as your guest proves just how stupid you are.”
