“One of the things that’s very troubling to me,” LevinTV host Mark Levin said on the radio Friday night, “is the extent to which our enemies get support among the Democrats when the enemy is the problem.”

Specifically, Levin was referring to a recent interview that 2020 presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke gave on PBS Newshour, in which the Texas Democrat said the current administration is “gunning for war” with Iran over a recent attack on two oil tankers.

“So Iran attacks oil tankers — and this is just the latest stuff that Iran has done — and we’re gunning for war?” Levin remarked. “These really are ‘hate America first’ leftists,’ aren’t they? We’re gunning for war? We’re not gunning for anything.”

During the interview, O’Rourke also said that he would work with allies in the region that the president “has turned his back on” in order to counter the Iranian threat; Levin was quick to correct this point.

“The Gulf states, like never before, are aligned with the United States; Israel and the Gulf states, like never before, are aligned with each other, all against Iran,” Levin corrected. “I don’t believe we’ve ever seen anything like this.”

“And Beto O’Rourke rambles on like he knows what the hell he’s talking about,” Levin concluded, “when he doesn’t know anything he’s talking about.”
