It is an Irish brawl sure to keep fans on the edge of their seat, Chris Matthews of NBC has denounced fellow Irish American Sean Hannity as a 'clown and a hyena' because of his comments on global warming.
Matthews really got worked up and said to Hannity and some other leading republicans: "It isn't something to laugh about gentlemen unless you don't care what happens to this planet down the road."
Hannity, the Fox News host, has been mocking Democrats, and Al Gore in particular, about global warming because of the huge snowstorms that the East Coast is experiencing at the moment.
On his 'Hardball' TV program on Wednesday night, Mathews said: "Up next, the anti-science crowd in the Republican Party is saying that that the snow storms we're having are evidence against global warming These guys, these clowns- go to high school!"
After a break Matthews continued: "Next, hyena time. Here’s Sean Hannity on Fox, Monday. Quote. Here’s Sean talking, 'It's the most severe winter weather in- winter storm in years, which would seem to contradict Al Gore's hysterical global warming theories.'
"Here's Senator Jim DeMint twittering yesterday. Quote, 'It's going to keep snowing in D.C. until Al Gore cries uncle.' And here's Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell when asked about passing climate change legislation, just yesterday.
"Quote, 'Where’s Al Gore now?' Well, here are the facts, gentlemen. The average global temperature last year was the second highest on record. The past decade was the warmest ever. Cold weather in one area over several days doesn't change the reality of what’s happening to this planet, the only one we've got, by the way."
No word of response from Hannity yet, but expect it to be hot and heavy when he does.Word is the two actively detest each other.
