Laura Ingraham Gets Trolled by Her Own Guest: ‘Where’s Your Sponsors?’

Things got ugly on the set of the “Ingraham Angle” Wednesday evening when a show guest taunted Laura Ingraham to her face  about the advertiser boycott currently plaguing her program.

“Where’s your sponsors? David Hogg got rid of half of them,” mocked Enrique Morones of Border Angels, an immigrant rights group.

“A high school kid shut you down,” he added.

“Poor Enrique is trying to make waves,” said a visibly annoyed Ingraham, who promptly booted Morones from the set.

The moment was precipitated by Ingraham’s blasting of Morones for being rude to another guest. With Morones off the show, the Fox News host was left alone with John Cox, a GOP candidate for governor of California, but she interested in any further analysis from him — and did her best to disarm the Morones affair.

“It’s very important for people watching the show tonight to understand that what just happened with a rabid pro-illegal immigration activist — and he is that. But, we still invited him on, because it’s fun to have a spirited debate. But what you just saw is what we talked about on Monday of a week ago, which was the attempt of the left to demonize those with whom they disagree,” Ingraham said.

“We didn’t demonize Mr. Morones,” she added. “They go personal because they’re losing on the facts.”

The advertiser boycott is a sensitive issue for Ingraham, whose show has hemorrhaged more than two dozen sponsors since she mocked Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg for not getting accepted to a number of universities he had applied to.

Though some advertisers have returned — the show has been running with noticeably fewer commercials, since Ingraham returned from a “vacation” two weeks ago.

Ingraham Tells Hannity: ‘I’m Glad for like a Millisecond the Heat’s off Me and on You’

Sean Hannity addressed the story everyone was talking about on his show Monday — that he was identified as Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s mystery client.

“Without knowing any of the facts … the media went absolutely insane, wall-to-wall coverage of yours truly,” the Fox News host said, before airing a montage of talking heads saying his name over, and over, and over again.

After closing out his show by reiterating his prior statement that Cohen never represented him in a legal matter but that he did have brief conversations with the attorney while “looking for input and perspective” — mostly about real estate — Hannity passed the mic over to Laura Ingraham for her show.

Ingraham seemed to find the whole mess amusing and began parroting, “Hannity, Hannity, Hannity, Hannity … I love all the intonations.”

“Hannity, all I can say is — you’re like my brother but I am glad for like a millisecond the heat is off me and on you,” she said, referring to the 27 advertisers she has lost since mocking Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg for “whining” about not getting into several universities. (She has apologized.)

“I appreciate that,” Hannity replied. “That is like a sibling.”

Earlier on Monday’s show, lawyer Alan Dershowitz served Hannity a less amiable moment when he told him: “First of all, Sean, I want to say that I really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on this show.”

Laura Ingraham Ratings Spike to Highest Ever Despite Advertiser Boycott

Fox News host Laura Ingraham has lost advertisers, but she’s gained ratings: Last week she earned her best ever.

Ingraham went on vacation on March 3o after advertisers began bailing on her show because she mocked Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg for “whining” about not getting into colleges. But in her return to the airwaves last week, she was up 25 percent in total viewers and 36 percent in the key 25-54 demo, compared to her averages for the first three months of the year.

She averaged 3,099,000 total viewers and 685,000 in the 25-54 demo. The numbers included a bump in viewership for Friday’s coverage of the airstrikes on Syria, which also improved ratings for her competition at MSNBC and CNN. Ingraham beat both networks in total viewers and the demo last week.

Also Read: Here Are the 27 Advertisers David Hogg Convinced to Dump Laura Ingraham

The numbers suggest that rather than costing Ingraham viewers, the dispute over Hogg has drawn eyes to her show, which debuted in October.

Ingraham has lost 27 advertisers since her tweet about Hogg, for which she has apologized. Fox News has said it will stand by her.

Last week, Ace Hardware reversed its decision to stop advertising on her show, exactly one week after it announced it would part ways with the Fox News host.

Hogg spearheaded calls for an advertiser boycott after Ingraham mocked him in a March 28 tweet, and the liberal activist group Media Matters for America quickly picked up the effort. Since the campaign began, most of her biggest sponsors, including Mitsubishi, Blue Apron, SlimFast and IBM have exited, and ad time on “The Ingraham Angle” has been cut roughly in half.

Everyone’s Making the Same Sean Hannity ‘Vacation’ Joke

The news that Trump attorney Michael Cohen secretly worked for Sean Hannity has many, many people on Twitter making the same joke: Now might be a convenient time for Hannity to go on “vacation.”

Fox News hosts have a habit of taking vacations just as damaging stories begin to swirl around them, leading some critics to say it’s part of a Fox News playbook: Jesse Watters, Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingraham and even Hannity have taken breaks amid past advertiser boycotts.

Ingraham was the latest to take what she said was a pre-planned vacation, after advertisers bailed because she accused Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg of “whining” that he didn’t get into several universities. (She apologized and returned to her show last week.)

Also Read: Here Are the 27 Advertisers David Hogg Convinced to Dump Laura Ingraham

Hannity critics on Twitter noted that he has covered Cohen on his show before without disclosing any ties to Cohen. Hannity said in a statement to TheWrap on Monday: “Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective.”

That didn’t stop the jokes. Or rather, variations on the same joke.

“Does anybody know if Sean Hannity has any long-planned vacations coming up?” tweeted actor-comedian Michael Ian Black.

“If Sean Hannity announces he’s going on vacation until the Cohen investigation is complete, does that mean Jimmy Kimmel owes him a jet ski?” comedian-actor Matt Oswalt tweeted, in reference to Kimmel’s Oscars gag.

“I wonder when Hannity’s long-planned vacation is going to start,” tweeted political writer John Podhoretz.

Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment on all the tweets.

Below are a few of the variations on the Hannity vacation joke. Who told it best?

Does anybody know if Sean Hannity has any long-planned vacations coming up?

at this point my only question is if Sean Hannity announces he’s going on vacation until the Cohen investigation is complete does that mean Jimmy Kimmel owes him a jet ski?

Parkland Student Activist David Hogg Teases Another Boycott: ‘Stay Tuned’

Parkland, Florida shooting survivor David Hogg announced Monday that he would launch another boycott sometime later this week following his successful campaign against Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

“Going to announce another boycott this week… Stay tuned,” the high school senior tweeted along with a gif of a nervous Kermit the Frog.

Going to announce another boycott this week… Stay tuned ???? pic.twitter.com/XIURHxFgW4

That nervous Kermit could very well be Fox News president Jack Abernethy if another one of his stars is the target of the new boycott.

Hogg did not respond to a request from TheWrap for details about who or what the next boycott will target.

Late last month, Hogg launched an advertiser boycott against the host of “The Ingraham Angle” that has led to more than two dozen advertisers publicly severing ties with Ingraham’s primetime show.

Ingraham also took a very suspicious vacation as the controversy heated up  — which many experts told TheWrap was a strategic bit of crisis communications for her employer.

“Fox News uses this vacation tactic to buy time so they can evaluate the long-term prospects of the advertiser actions, as well as viewer sentiment,” former Fox News president Joe Peyronnin told TheWrap at the time.

After surviving the massacre at his high school in February, Hogg and many of his classmates have become increasingly outspoken advocates of gun control as a way to curb mass shootings. The increasingly partisan nature of their calls has resulted in growing hostility towards them from conservative media.

The Hogg boycott of Ingraham advertisers, which has since also been taken by the liberal pressure group Media Matters, was kicked off after Ingraham publicly mocked his failure to get into a number of universities on Twitter last month.

The tweet which started it all remains live on Ingraham’s page — which you can see below.

‘SNL’: Laura Ingraham Visits Weekend Update To Reveal New Sponsors, Like ‘Carl’s Sr.’ and ‘Lady Bump Stock’ (Video)

One of the biggest stories in conservative media the last couple weeks has been the beating Fox News host Laura Ingraham has been taking from advertisers since she made fun of David Hogg, one of the more outspoken survivors of the Parkland school shooting, on Twitter. More than two dozen sponsors have fled her show in the past two weeks. But maybe not all is lost — Ingraham, as played by Kate McKinnon, visited Weekend Update on this week’s “SNL” to speak to co-host Colin Jost and unveil a whole host of totally real new sponsors for her show. Including “Carl’s Sr.” and “Cream Soda, the soda for whites.”

Below you’ll find a transcript of McKinnon’s appearance as Ingraham, and you can watch this segment in the video embedded above. Which you should watch because it’s really not possible to really capture McKinnon’s impeccable impersonation in text form. You can see the rest of Weekend Update from this week’s “SNL” right here.

Weekend Update co-host Colin Jost: “This week Red Lobster, Blue Apron, and Slim Fast joined the advertiser boycott against Fox News host Laura Ingraham after she mocked Parkland survivor David Hogg for getting rejected from four colleges. She’s back on her show after her forced hiatus. Here to comment is Laura Ingraham.”

Laura Ingraham: “Hi Colin. Thank you. Hi. Thanks for having me.”

Jost: ‘You’re welcome. You’re welcome. And congratulations on returning to your show.”

Ingraham: “Thank you. It’s so good to be back after that planned vacation. It was so fun and so planned and so scheduled a long time ago. Look, the important thing is I am back. And I’m not going to cave to bullying from the ‘tolerant left.’ I don’t care if I lost a couple sponsors.”

Jost: “Yeah, well, so far you’ve lost 27.”

Ingraham: “Yeah. And all because I trolled a’ traumatized teen’? After spewing venom for decades, Twitter suddenly has made me accountable? Okay. You know what, that can’t keep me down. Because I’m really excited about some of my new sponsors. Like Carl’s Sr. — leftover Carl’s Jr. food ground to mush for old people. Mmm-mmm, Carl’s Sr. And YourPillow. From the makers of MyPillow. Send us your pillow. We need more pillows. Or how about Shkreli’s Jelly. It’s just jelly that’s $8,000 a jar.”

Jost: “Are those real products, Laura?”

Ingraham: “Yep. You see, the totalitarian left can attack me all they want. But I will continue to defend the First Amendment. That’s my right to bully people without being bullied in return. Right, Colin?

Jost: “Yeah, no, that’s not how it works, Laura.”

Ingraham: “Oh, fine. But just look. Don’t boycott my show. Our country’s so divided right now, and I’m an important part of that. Let’s move on. You know I’m going to say something worse. Why don’t you just watch the show and find out what that’s going to be? Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to mention more of my sponsors. Like Lady Bump Stock. The lightweight bump stocks for delicate hands. And Reverse Mortgage. We’ll take that house now. And how about Malaysian Airlines. Caught in a scandal and need an escape? Malaysian Airlines.” [Ingraham spreads her arms to mimic an airplane]

Jost: “Okay, Laura, I really– [laughing] Don’t act out Malaysian — I don’t think those are real sponsors.”

Ingraham: “What do you want me to say? I’m getting pwned by teenagers. Am I using that right?”

Jost: “I don’t really–“

Ingraham: “Pwned?”

Jost: “I definitely don’t know.”

I said I wanted to try art, and I got kicked in the face. But I didn’t say I was getting bullied, I just grew up into this. But you know who’s not afraid to sponsor this? Cream Soda. The soda for whites. You got the white one, baby!”

Jost: “All right, all right. All right, Laura, I think that’s enough.”

Ingraham: “Can I say one more thing about the Parkland kids?”

Jost: “No! That got you in trouble.”

Ingraham: “Oh, fine.”

Ebates Is 27th Laura Ingraham Sponsor to Pull Ads

Cashback website Ebates has pulled its advertising from “The Ingraham Angle,” becoming at least the 27th sponsor to exit Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show, and the second to do so on Friday.

“We wanted to address concerns about our advertising,” the company said in a statement posted on Twitter. “Ebates is a platform for all and we do not support polarizing statements of any kind. We placed our ads through a 3rd party and unfortunately this spot was placed incorrectly. We have since resolved the issue.”

“The Ingraham Angle” has been hit by an advertiser boycott campaign spearheaded by Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg after Ingraham mocked him for “whining” about his rejection from several California colleges. She subsequently apologized, and Fox News has stood by her.

Ebates had been one Ingraham’s remaining national sponsors, but received complaints on social media after one of its ads ran during Wednesday night’s episode.

Since the campaign began, most of Ingraham’s biggest sponsors, including Mitsubishi, Blue Apron, SlimFast, and IBM have bailed, and ad time on “The Ingraham Angle” has been cut roughly in half. In fact, commercial breaks on Thursday’s episode added up to just under 10 minutes total. By contrast, data from the tracking firm Kantar showed that “The Ingraham Angle” averaged 14 and a half minutes of ads prior to the boycott campaign.

But there was a bright spot for Ingraham on Thursday night: Among the episode’s 12 national advertisers was Ace Hardware, which reversed its previous decision to stop sponsoring the show.

On Friday, German chemical company BASF pulled ads from “The Ingraham Angle,” saying in a tweet that “our advertising selection is based on channels rather than individual shows. However, we have adjusted this schedule so it will not include Ms. Ingraham’s show.”
