READ: Matt Drudge Tweets ‘Segment on Fox News…Where Hosts Laughed and Joked Their Way Through a Discussion on Political Impact of Terror Was Bizarre’

He did not hold back.

Conservative media guru Matt Drudge made a bombastic return to Twitter on Monday by blasting Fox News for its coverage of last week’s slew of attempted bombings and the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue over the weekend.

In a scathing tweet, Drudge knocked Fox’s Outnumbered for politicizing the hate-fueled tragedies that have left the nation reeling.

“A segment on Fox News this morning where hosts laughed and joked their way through a discussion on political [sic] impact of terror was bizarre,” The Drudge Report founder wrote. “Not even 48 hours since blood flowed at synagogue [sic]? Check your soul in the makeup chair!”

Perhaps it’s Drudge’s Jewish background that inspired him to call out Fox for its callous politicization of hate crimes.

Drudge posted a screengrab of Fox personality Lisa Kennedy Montgomery yucking it up while discussing possible electoral consequences following the string of hate crimes.

Drudge also shared screengrabs of pundits jovially discussing whether last week’s events would have an impact on the November midterms.

“Hysterical!” he wrote.

The ticker at the bottom of the screen was its own source of Drudge’s anger as well.

“QUESTIONS ON HOW MAIL-BOMB SCARE, SYNAGOGUE ATTACK COULD IMPACT MIDTERM VOTERS EIGHT DAYS FROM NOW”

Followers didn’t spare Fox or Drudge from their own frustrations. Drudge helped shape this narrative, some said, and now he has to own it.

Fox News responded Monday afternoon denying any wrongdoing.
