Fiery Fox News host Mark Levin opined about two network colleagues “outside his social circle” during a digression on his syndicated radio show.

Levin prefaced his comments on Tuesday prior to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address by playing a soundbite from the Fox News Channel program “America’s Newsroom” in which U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) called for the Biden administration to return America to energy independence as it was under President Donald J. Trump.

“That’s the Bill Hemmer, Dana Perino show. You know I’ve never been invited on that show, Mister Producer? You want to know why? Dana hates me. Yeah, it’s true,” Levin claimed about the former White House press secretary in the President George W. Bush administration.

Perino is also a co-host of the top-rated “The Five” ensemble on the Fox News Channel.

“Luckily you’re not on-air, but it, but she — she doesn’t like me. She’s a Bush-y, and I’m not. She’s a Rove-ite, and I’m not. So, they take these things very personally, I think. Bill Hemmer has called me in the past. He’s actually a very nice guy, if you want to know the truth,” Levin continued.

The host of FNC’s “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday evenings went on to express disapproval about Fox News contributor and political consultant Karl Rove who was White House senior advisor and deputy chief of staff for G.W. Bush.

“I’m sorry, I don’t care for Karl Rove. There he is in Texas, you know, fighting for the RINOs right now. He was supposed to be part of the group that was gonna fight tooth and nail and defeat these efforts of gerrymandering that would blow out the Republicans, and he’s utterly failed,” Levin contended.

“He’s failed at most of what he does. Bush almost lost 2000, but for the Supreme Court and litigation that took place — legitimately — but wasn’t exactly a landslide. And so, you know, I raise these things. I’m critical of these things, so I’m just not part of the social circle, which is true,” he continued.

Levin’s comments in this regard start at about an hour in, at the 1:05 mark in the audio embedded below:

A best-selling author, an outspoken foe of the Democrat Party from Joe Biden on down, and constitutional scholar, Levin worked in various capacities in the President Ronald Regan administration. Levin joined Fox News in November 2017. He earned a law degree from Temple University.

Aside from those who aren’t enamored with Fox News in any context, Levin’s controversial assessment of his co-workers has prompted some social media users to weigh in:
