Laura Ingraham Gets Hit With Ultimate Karma After Bullying Parkland Teen


Despite his repeated demonstrations of racism and sexism, and despite his complete lack of political convictions (beyond what currently riles up his base), Donald Trump is an idol to ultra-conservatives. These media personalities often find a home on Fox News.

One of these fawning commentators is Laura Ingraham. It seems impossible that a previous speechwriter for Reagan would become a die-hard Trump fan, but here we are. Ingraham is a true believer. In a profile by Newsweek, we read about the irony of her Trump obsession:

‘If you had told someone five years ago that Laura would be out leading the cheers today for a pro-abortion, thrice-divorced, never-voted-in-a-Republican-primary New York businessman, it would be seen as a very clever joke.’

Ingraham will stop at nothing to support Trump and his campaign backers. Like a bulldog, she will sic whomever instructed. Even if it’s a teenager who lived through a school massacre last month. Here she is, being petty on Wednesday morning:

Because this is 2018 and Twitter is on the internet, everyone noticed that this fully-grown woman was mocking a teen activist. Some of her fellow Trumpers joined in the bullying:

Others were shocked that Ingraham could stoop so low:

The student in question, David Hogg, responded by creating a push to contact Ingram’s advertisers to let them know about her behavior:

Soon he had the list up on Twitter:

Today, Ingraham’s advertisers are dropping like flies. Numbers three, nine, and twelve have all announced that they are severing ties with her Fox News show.

Wayfair issued this statement to VICE:

‘In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency. As such, we have made a decision to stop advertising on that program.

‘As a company, we support open dialogue and debate on issues. However, the decision of an adult to personally criticize a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values. We do not plan to continue advertising on this particular program.’

Only after she realized that she would pay a financial price, Ingraham finally apologized over Twitter:

No one’s buying it, Laura.
