On Friday night, Laura Ingraham may have found the silver lining in Andrew McCabe‘s firing. She reported the news at the top of her show that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had fired the former deputy FBI director, who was just two days away from receiving his pension. Well, during a segment first flagged by The Daily Beast reporter Maxwell Tani, the Fox News host was a bit optimistic. “This could be the beginning of something very great for the country,” Ingraham said. “Namely we clean out the underbrush in our intelligence agencies. I know that’s a big call and it’s a big wish, but it’s time to clean out the problem people. And If Andrew McCabe lied and misrepresented as the Office of the Inspector General is going to conclude and the Office of Professional Responsibility has confirmed, that is a real problem. You’re supposed to be calling Continue reading "Laura Ingraham on McCabe Firing: ‘Could Be the Beginning of Something Very Great for the Country’"
On Wednesday night, Laura Ingraham sounded off on the nationwide student walkouts in an effort to push for gun control. She began by saying that her “curiosity” encouraged her to watch these student activists and politicians participate in this giant demonstration, but told her viewers to not be “fooled” into thinking that these protests were an “organic outpouring of youthful rage” because it was “choreographed” by the youth wing of the Women’s March called “Empower.” “You’ve got to hand to them, really,” Ingraham said. “Leftists do know how to organize and protest. Students took part by the thousands… eh, who needs homework and history when you can get credit for screaming?” The Fox News host said these students were “enabled by a familiar cast of characters” that included Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). “Look, you’ve heard of like Continue reading "Laura Ingraham Blasts Anti-Gun Student Walkouts: ‘MoveOn.org’ Could’ve Written This ‘Anti-Trump Diatribe’"
Laura Ingraham tonight weighed in on the firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, something she thought was long overdue. The Fox News host began by telling their viewers that they “shouldn’t have been surprised” by Tillerson’s firing, especially since tensions between him and President Trump have been reported for a while. She said the outgoing secretary “didn’t look well” during his “emotional” presser. Ingraham played a clip from an interview she had with Trump back in November. When asked if Tillerson was going to remain at the State Department, Trump responded by saying “we’ll see.” She then blasted the media for painting this firing as “White House dysfunction” and dismissed the supposed “chaos” by pointing to the Obama administrations numerous scandals like Benghazi, the IRS targeting of conservatives, and Fast & Furious, which she pointed out that no one was fired as a result, as well as Continue reading "Laura Ingraham Says Rex Tillerson Should’ve Left Long Ago: ‘If You Call Your Boss a Moron…’"
On Wednesday night, Laura Ingraham had a testy exchange with Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh over her plans to attend the March For Our Lives in Washington D.C. Pugh announced yesterday that she will be taking 60 buses full of students from her city to the D.C. because she wanted their voices “to be heard.” Ingraham began her conversation with the Baltimore mayor by noting the funding of this protest, which involves taxpayer money. Pugh replied by staing that money would also be provided by the private sector and donors. Ingraham then invoked statistics from Baltimore’s education system, which included a 10-year low in enrollment, a $130 million deficit for 2018, and 115 personnel layoffs. But Pugh immediately pushed back, saying that she doesn’t know how that has to do with this protest. “You’re funding buses, in part, to go down to Washington, and yet you have a Continue reading "Baltimore Mayor Pugh and Laura Ingraham Go At It Over Gun Protests: ‘Get Your Facts Straight, Love’"
So this was a thing that happened today. Warming up the CPAC crowd ahead and President Donald Trump’s speech, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham decided to use her address to the conservative gathering to toss some jokes out at the expense of liberals. “It’s great to be here at CPAC, or as liberals call it, the group that puts fun in the word dysfunctional,” she began. “Come on, you’ve got to be self-deprecating, guys.” She then referenced a line she noted comedian Tim Allen said about the Clintons and co-opted it into her own jab at liberals. “Liberals are kind of like herpes, just when you think you have it beat, they come back again. again,” she snarked, to applause from the audience. Ingraham finished the joke, “And there’s no cure. You can only keep it at bay.” Watch the clip above, via CSPAN2.

Last week, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham unleashed on Cleveland Cavs star LeBron James for criticizing President Donald Trump. Targeting a recent video piece James did for UNINTERRUPTED, Ingraham called James’ political commentary “barely intelligible,” seemingly questioned his intelligence and ended by telling the NBA player to “shut up and dribble.” Since then, a number of athletes have ripped Ingraham for her comments while James himself has completely dismissed her by declaring he doesn’t even know what her name is. Noting that Ingraham denies that her remarks had any racist intent behind them, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin asked Baltimore Ravens player Benjamin Watson this afternoon if he felt race was involved and why Fox News pundits feel some celebrities should be able to commentate on politics but not James. “Well, I don’t know quite why they aren’t allowed other than the fact they have an opposing view,” Watson said. “What Continue reading "NFL Player on Laura Ingraham’s LeBron Criticism: ‘I Do Think That There Are Racial Undertones’"
Actor, podcaster and professional feudster Michael Rapaport has offered his two cents on that whole Laura Ingraham telling LeBron James to “shut up and dribble” thing, taking to Twitter and posting a video that already has the outrage machine working overtime. The profanity-laced rant is being seen by some as sexist, with Rapaport taking a full minute to go at Ingraham as if they were in a schoolyard rap battle. “I’m apologizing in advance. I know this is gonna offend some women, but I had to do it,” he began. “This is for Laura Ingraham, the cock-eyed Fox News commentator with the Bobby Brown jaw who said that KD and LeBron James Continue reading "Actor Michael Rapaport Goes on Rant Against Laura Ingraham: ‘Shut Up and Dribble… Deez Nuts’"
