Fox News on Sunday night served up a rerun of a Mark Levin interview with Donald Trump ― leading to fresh criticism comparing it to the type of fawning typically seen on North Korean state-run television.
Levin teased the rerun last week, urging people to tune in on Sunday for a rebroadcast of his April interview, in which the former president promoted a book of letters written to him.
During Sunday’s rebroadcast, viewers noticed a moment reminiscent of what might be seen on state-run media in those nations, with Levin offering over-the-top praise for Trump.
“I’ve talked to a lot of important people: Supreme Court justices, presidents, presidential candidates, brilliant people,” Levin said. “And talking with you is really the most impressive conversation I’ve had.”
Levin said Trump had a “phenomenal presidency” and predicted it would be remembered well by historians.
Critics fired back:
