‘Bullies Understand a Punch in the Nose’: Fox Anchor Seemingly Advocates for Military Action
Fox News anchor Leland Vittert appeared to repeatedly suggest to Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Thursday that America needed to engage in military action against Iran, comparing the Middle East regime to schoolyard bullies who only understand a “punch in the nose.”
“It’s a long list of bad behavior, and I’m glad you brought that up,” Vittert, filling in for anchor Bill Hemmer, replied. “It’s like a sandbox in grade school. Sometimes bullies don’t understand sanctions, tough talk, deployment, airstrikes against proxies. Bullies understand a punch in the nose.”
“Is there a time that the Iranian bullies and the ayatollahs need a punch in the nose to their leadership, that goes beyond merely sanctions and rhetoric?” Vittert further asked.
