Fox News host Mark Levin was a “special guest” at a campaign rally for a local GOP candidate this week. After he got called out by Media Matters for violating a network policy against campaigning, Levin used his radio show on Wednesday to insist “nobody” can stop him.

“If I want to support a friend who’s running for the state Senate, well, dammit, I will do it. I should have done more for him. If I want to support my local sheriff then, dammit, I will do it, and nobody on this planet is going to stop me. No corporation, no left-wing group funded by billionaire, American-hating pukes. Nobody,” he said.

TheWrap reached out to Fox News but did not immediately hear back.

In November 2018, the Fox News publicly rebuked Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro after its on-air hosts joined President Trump speaking on stage at a Missouri campaign rally.

Media Matters, which functions as a watchdog group focusing on conservative media, noted that beyond campaigning Monday for Republican Geary Higgins’ Virginia state Senate campaign, Levin also appeared at another rally for Higgins in May and a 2018 rally for Florida Republican Ron DeSantis’ successful gubernatorial campaign.

Higgins lost his race Tuesday, which helped Democrats gain control of the state Senate.
