The Young Turks today finally responded to all of the attacks by Dave Rubin, and it was quite a response.

Calling Rubin 'lazy', Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian said that Rubin left TYT because he was asking 'six-figures' for a 30 minute show.

In a segment about Milo Yiannopolous, Uygur and Kasparian brought up Rubin, who has interviewed Yiannopolous multiple times.  Uygur and Kasparian pointed out that Yiannopolous made anti-Semitic statements on the show. Rubin did not question those statements.

Kasparian noted that Rubin used to be one of her closest friends, and she was extremely 'hurt' by what Rubin did.

Nevertheless, she said that Rubin turned his back on her and TYT, and started badmouthing them to Joe Rogan and others.

Kasparian said that she was finally willing to talk about what Rubin has done -- after all of this time. It was then when she noted that Rubin left the company because he was 'lazy' and wasn't willing to work for the money offered.

She claimed that the Koch brothers are currently paying Rubin, and he has changed his views accordingly. We wrote previously about how Rubin's views appear to have changed after leaving TYT.

Uygur also continued to discuss Rubin, and he noted that Rubin was allowed to say whatever he wanted on TYT.  Uygur pointed out that when he worked at TYT, his views on most issues were different.
