Conservative talk show host Mark Levin unleashed on Fox News Tuesday night, saying the network failed to challenge claims by presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpGOP congressman slams Trump over report that U.S. bombed former anti-ISIS coalition headquarters US to restore 'targeted assistance' to Central American countries after migration deal Trump says lawmakers should censure Schiff MORE.


“You’re not a news channel anymore. You’re the Fox Channel,” said Levin, who endorsed Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzThe Hill's Morning Report - Dem debate contenders take aim at Warren The Hill's Morning Report - Trump grapples with Turkey controversy This week: Congress returns to chaotic Washington MORE for the GOP nomination. The Texas senator suspended his campaign after a loss in the Indiana primary on Tuesday.

“Donald Trump is bringing up a National Enquirer story that accuses Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, of being in cahoots, in one way or another, with Lee Harvey Oswald,” Levin said. 

Trump had mentioned on “Fox and Friends” earlier Tuesday a National Enquirer story that claimed Cruz’s father was with Oswald before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Levin said the hosts of the program failed to challenge Trump’s claim.

"Several of the people on ‘The Five’ thought this was hilarious," Levin continued. "As a matter of fact, they were defending the National Enquirer. ... That’s why it’s not the Fox News Channel, it’s the Fox Channel, and the Donald Trump super-PAC."

“We’re going to get our asses kicked in the general election, ladies and gentlemen. That’s the trajectory. Maybe it’ll change, but likely, it will not,” Levin said, adding that Trump is “limping” across the finish line to the nomination.

“They may be laughing today, but they’re going to be rubbing their own faces in their own feces. I’ll tell you that after the general election, because they have humiliated themselves.”
