Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham blasted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for attacking the conservative billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch on the Senate floor, something Reid has done on numerous occasions this year, most recently on Monday.

"This is the typical problem the Democrats run into," Ingraham said Tuesday on "Fox & Friends." "They start demonizing individual citizens from the well of the Senate — which I haven't seen before, a sitting senator take after two men who have done an enormous amount for the free market. They are merely expressing their views in the political system."

Ingraham said George Soros, Steven Spielberg, and David Geffen are all examples of people who spend an "enormous" amount of money in politics but who aren't demonized or attacked.

She added that the Kochs are demonized "in the well of the Senate by a man who has his own connections to the subsidiary of the Koch Brothers!"

In remarks in the Senate on Monday, Reid likened the connection between the Kochs and the GOP to corporate sponsors and NASCAR drivers.

"NASCAR fans can easily find their favorite drivers by simply looking at the cars as they fly by, because there are corporate emblems on the hood of the car … For our clothing here in the Senate, we don't bear commercial logos. Many Republicans might as well wear Koch insignias," Reid said, according to Politico.

Ingraham said "Reid should be called out" by Republicans and "everyone of good conscience in the U.S. Senate."

"I find what he's doing on this to be frankly dangerous. It's disturbing. But it's typical Harry. He doesn't have a record to talk about. So he demeans and tries to divide by going after two men who have not violated laws, who are businessmen trying to actually create opportunity for people in this country. I find it disgusting."
