Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity was making no apologies Monday for words he spoke on his radio show that drew fire from MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.
"The left-wing so-called journalists, the Al Sharpton network didn't see my point -- decided to twist what I said," Hannity said on his Fox News Channel show.
"It's not really worth responding to liberal Joe and his under 400,000 viewers or whatever he has," Hannity said. "His radio show failed, his TV show is failing. He's kind of sold his soul on a liberal network, and he attacks conservatives and he's used as a prop by his inside Washington pals to attack conservatives." ...
In his radio comments, Hannity asked whether Obama was identifying with Martin because "he smoked pot and did a little blow" as a young man, and that "we know Trayvon had been smoking pot that night" when he confronted George Zimmerman, who shot him to death.
Scarborough, on "Morning Joe" Monday said Hannity's comments were "racially intolerant." Hannity said his comments were tongue-in-cheek.
