This morning, radio host Don Imus urged Fox News’ Chris Wallace to stop inviting “bigoted idiots like Rick Santorum” on his Sunday political talk show, saying that Santorum “diminishes your program” by suggesting that openly gay and lesbian soldiers “cause problems for people living in close quarters.” Imus’ remarks come after Santorum appeared on Fox News Sunday and doubled down on his claim that the recent repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell inserts “sexual activity” into the military. Watch the exchange:

Wallace also hit back against criticism from Ann Coulter, who said that “Juan Williams should have punched Chris Wallace in the face” for likening Santorum’s rhetoric about gay people to the arguments deployed by opponents of racially integrating the military during the 1940s. “You know, ever since Ms. Coulter attacked the 9/11 widows and said they were self-promoters, who were enjoying their husband’s death on 9/11, I stopped paying attention to her,” he said.
