The murder-suicide that rocked the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs over the weekend, and Bob Costas’ commentary about it Sunday night, was fodder on cable news Monday.
On FNC’s “Hannity,” the discussion got heated between guests Erik Rush and Leo Tyrell when attorney, author and conservative Rush said the Jovan Belcher case is instigating “fear mongering” and “histrionics” from “the big government political leftists who want to disarm the public.”
Tyrell jumped in, charging, “That is an absolute lie!”
Rush began to say, “It’s particularly irksome to me to see a black man come out for all of this gun control with specious arguments.” “Don’t even use race here, because you are being used right now,” shouted Tyrell. “You can go ahead and cut my mic off!”
As both men talked over each other, including several “shut up… no you shut up” comments, Hannity finally ended it and moved on. Watch the fireworks after the jump…
