Constitutional expert and Fox News host Mark Levin tore into fellow host Laura Ingraham on Friday, accusing her of having a “cork up her nose” and fostering an intense hatred for Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is running on the GOP ticket in Pennsylvania for the Senate.
“For some reason, the 10 p.m.-er has a real hate-on for Oz. I don’t hate Oz. I don’t hate [David] McCormick. I think they’re both terrific men. I don’t really hate any of these candidates. But there’s something going on with the 10 p.m.-er,” Levin charged.
“I’m a Pennsylvanian. 10 p.m.-er’s not a Pennsylvanian. But some people, because they have a camera in their face, actually think they know what’s best for you without actually inquiring into it,” he stated, appearing to accuse Ingraham of not knowing what she is talking about when it comes to Dr. Oz.
“Sounds like a perfectly nice guy, sounds like a perfectly legitimate conservative. No reason to tear the guy down, I don’t think. Do you, Mr. Producer? And yet these people get these platforms. They think they’re so smart,” Levin sarcastically commented.
“10 p.m.-er has a cork up her nose over this. I don’t know what the problem is,” he remarked.
Levin hosts “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sundays and has a radio show as well. He took his shot at Ingraham on his radio show but did not mention her by name.
Oz has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump. The TV medical personality is being heavily promoted by Fox News host Sean Hannity as well.
Ingraham has publicly denounced Oz due to his previously-aired stances on issues such as illegal immigration, abortion, the Second Amendment, and climate change. All of which appear to contradict conservative opinions on those subjects if his prior comments are taken into consideration.

Ingraham has called Trump’s endorsement of Oz a “mistake.” Many conservatives agree with her and are puzzled by Trump’s endorsement of him.
“I think it was a mistake to endorse Oz,” Ingraham declared on her show the “Ingraham Angle” recently. “I’ll say it. I’m not afraid to say it. It was a mistake to endorse Oz.”
Oz is mired in a three-way race to the finish for the nomination in Pennsylvania. He’s facing off with Republicans David McCormick and Kathy Barnette. According to Newsweek, Oz holds a slim lead over the other two candidates. The primary will take place next Tuesday and it’s anyone’s guess who will come out on top at this point.
The current Real Clear Politics average of recent Pennsylvania polls currently shows Oz leading with about 23.2 percent of Republicans. Barnette is backed by 21 percent and McCormick has approximately 20.3 percent of the vote.
A Fox News poll conducted from May 3 to 7 puts Barnette in third place. That poll had Oz at 22 percent and McCormick at 20 percent. Barnette garnered 19 percent of the Republican vote. The survey of 1,001 registered voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
“Even though Oz got Trump’s endorsement, Barnette has more momentum,” Democrat pollster Chris Anderson told Fox News. “Her support doubled in two months, her supporters are the most interested, and her negatives are much lower than Oz or McCormick.”
Forty-six percent of Pennsylvania Republicans view Oz unfavorably according to the Fox News poll. McCormick’s unfavorables came in at 27 percent. Barnette’s were by far the lowest of the three, scoring just 12 percent.
