Ed Schultz mounted a robust defense of union leader Jimmy Hoffa on his Tuesday show.
Hoffa has been under fire recently after he told a crowd in Detroit to “take out these son-of-a-bitches” in the Tea Party in the 2012 election. Conservatives saw the comments as a call to violence. Schultz did not see it that way.
“Now, this is just Ed talking: I think he’s spot on!” he said. “…Hoffa fights fire with fire and this is what I think workers and middle classers in this country want.”
