Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) hit back at Fox News host Mark Levin on Thursday after Levin condemned the congressman, calling for his defeat in his next Republican primary.
Kinzinger labeled Levin as “The Godfather of ‘outrage for profit’” in a tweet.
Mark is The Godfather of “outrage for profit.” For some reason he has been obsessed with me for a while. 👇 https://t.co/t2XvnWB3iZ

The Illinois Republican’s response came after Levin posted a series of tweets calling him a “very devious and reckless politician.”
“He was elected as a Tea Party candidate 10 years ago and quickly turned on them,” Levin said. “He is now an activist for the administrative state and against constitutionalists.”
The Fox News host slammed Kinzinger for his recent jabs against President Trump and other Republicans’ efforts to overturn the Electoral College results. The Illinois representative has accused Trump of “trying to discredit” the election and called his and others’ unfounded claims that it was marred by widespread fraud a “scam.”
“Unsurprisingly, he’s celebrated by the Dem-Party media,” Levin tweeted. “His attack on those earnestly trying to fix what the Dems broke during this election cycle & their efforts to prevent further usurpations of the the Constitution (as they’ve announced their intentions), is unconscionable.”
“He should be defeated at the ballot box in the next Republican primary,” Levin concluded. “Then he can join CNN or MSNBC as a full-time, conservative-trashing contributor.”
