Tamara Holder, a liberal legal analyst on Fox News, possibly took things a step too far when she said that columnist Michelle Malkin is “angry” and needs to get laid.
Tamara and Michelle have a bit of a history with one another; they were both on Hannity in July, where they had a heated argument. Here’s an excerpt as reported by Mediaite, followed by a video:
“Why this instant knee-jerk reaction by your side after almost every tragedy?” Hannity asked liberal panelist Holder.
“You don’t think it’s a knee-jerk reaction to say that all comments by liberals are insane?” Holder responded. “Michelle Malkin’s new blog says ‘insane comments by the left.’”
“I diagnosed it as ‘Blame Righty Syndrome’ in the wake of the mass murder hysteria after the awful atrocity in Arizona,” Malkin responded. “I wish Tamara would confront reality one of these days,” prompting an interruption from Holder. “Let me put the pause button on you and let me put a pause button this entire madness,” Malkin continued. “Michael Bloomberg, an elected government official, essentially endorse endorsed anarchy. He called on police officers who are paid and who are employed by the government to protect and to serve, to go on strike.”
When Holder attempted to interrupt Malkin again, the conservative columnist shushed her.
“Shush? Really? Shush?” Holder said, taken aback. “Grow up!”
After a brief break in the tension, Malkin said that “the problem with people like Michael Bloomberg and with people like Tamara Holder is they don’t think about what they are saying. I take the time to listen.”
And here’s the video:
The more recent episode, however, had to do with today’s (Thursday, September 13) Fox Business segment. During a discussion on Romney’s comments regarding the events in Libya, the host, Don Imus, asked how Holder felt about Malkin’s defense of Mitt. Raw Story has more:
“She’s very angry,” Holder told Imus on Thursday.
“She needs to get laid?” a shocked Imus asked.
“Yeah,” Holder insisted.
“How’s that working out for you, by the way?” Imus wondered.
“Well, not so well,” Holder admitted. “But I’m not angry. I cope with it in other ways.”
In a series tweets after the Imus interview, Malkin lashed out at the pardon attorney.
Such petty squabbles are unprofessional (however entertaining they may be) and detract from the seriousness of their discussions.
