Laura Ingraham just humiliated herself at usual commercial break on Fox News show (WATCH)

- April 12, 2018

After a slew of high-profile departures from Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show after she opted to mock a Parkland shooting survivor, the conservative host made a remark tonight that was both unintentionally humiliating and exceedingly satisfying.

Ingraham’s show has lost approximately two dozen sponsors since Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s David Hogg called for a boycott against her after she attacked the 17-year-old over various college rejections. While speaking with a panel on tonight’s episode of “The Ingraham Angle,” where there normally would have been a commercial break, she instead says, “Fantastic segment but we got more though here. We’re going to go the whole show without a break!”

While Ingraham tried to play off the fact that she has effectively alienated almost every one of her sponsors by berating a mass shooting survivor as a good thing – “we’re going to go the whole show without a break!” – the unwittingly embarrassing moment was certainly rife with subtext.

 

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

The boycott began when Hogg – along with the help of his friends, all of whom wield a lot of power with their social media followings – took to Twitter to demand Ingraham’s advertisers pull their sponsorship from her program.

As of now, the boycott includes IBM, Mitsubishi, Allstate, Blue Apron, Slimfast, Bayer, Honda, Ruby Tuesday, Liberty Mutual, Office Depot, Nestle, Wayfair, TripAdvisor, Nutrish, Expedia, Joseph A. Banks, Hulu, Stitch Fix, Atlantis Bahamas, Jenny Craig, Miracle-Ear, Entertainment Studios, and Johnson & Johnson.

Amid the exodus, Ingraham did attempt to issue a half-hearted apology to Hogg.

Hogg, for his part, firmly rejected the transparent olive branch as a way to staunch the bleeding.

It seems Fox News finally found the silver lining to spewing filth so vile that it can’t even manage to promote hearing aids and Aspirin to its audience: now its viewers can watch commercial free.
