Dan Bongino, once a New York City police officer, has become a star in Conservative media. He has a radio show on Cumulus media and also hosts a show on Fox News.
Earlier this week, Bongino went on a long rant during his radio program, asking Cumulus to ‘cancel’ him over vaccine mandates. MSNBC host Chris Hayes wonders why he didn’t take the same stand against Fox News.
Hayes began, “If you do not have an uncle who shares his videos on Facebook, that is Dan Bongino, a guy who’s found a niche as one of the MAGA universe side characters.”
The MSNBC host continued:
“Now I should tell you, that guy threatening to quit over a vaccine mandate is in fact fully vaccinated. And a part of me wants to give him credit for sticking to his principles and at the very least calling out his employer over its vaccine policy, something that as we’ve noted repeatedly, people like Tucker Carlson don’t have the courage to do. But the thing is, like Tucker, Dan Bongino’s also a Fox News host and weirdly enough he has not threatened nor said one single word about Fox’s strict vaccine protocols that you either vaccinate or test daily. I guess the tough guy routine only goes so far.”
