Laura Ingraham’s Brother Has Been Trashing His ‘Shameful’ Sister on Twitter for Months

Hosting a prime-time cable news program comes with loads of perks. Political influence, privileged access to events, and significant monetary reward are just a few of the benefits that come with the territory of spending an hour each night in a well-lit television studio.

A risk that comes with a pundit’s success, however, is the potential that familial relationships are ripped apart under a public microscope.

Take for example Fox News host Laura Ingraham and the curious case of her brother Curtis. A Twitter account belonging to someone claiming to be her lesser-known brother has emerged as a brutally vocal critic of his sister’s politics of late, many examples of which we’ve embedded below.

When reached for comment about her brother’s strident criticism of her politics on Twitter, Laura Ingraham told Mediaite:

“My siblings and I are shocked and saddened to learn of these false and hurtful online postings. Although we’ve been estranged from him for many years, we love our brother and miss him very much.”

Curtis Ingraham’s most hot-button topic — and source of the sibling animus — seems to stem from the gun rights debate, on which Laura Ingraham is a decided proponent of the broadest definition of the 2nd amendment. She is PRO-GUN. He is not, best evidenced by the following:

Curtis Ingraham often mentions David Hogg in his tweets, the survivor of the Parkland, Florida school shooting whose spat with Laura Ingraham spawned the boycott of her show that threatened its existence.

Laura Ingraham’s decidedly conservative opinion program airs in the 10 p.m. hour each night, and she consistently draws millions of viewers looking to have their own opinions reaffirmed on popular topics of the day. A proud Christian who famously dons a massive gold cross necklace on air, Laura Ingraham is a vocal supporter of the Trump agenda, something her “estranged” brother Curtis seems to take issue with.

Elsewhere, Curtis Ingraham has decried his sister’s “lack of integrity” for her support of Trump, her alleged “racist comments” aimed at a black roommate (Ingraham denied this to Mediaite), her “monstrous” opposition to gay marriage, the hypocrisy of her rhetoric on immigration given she has three adopted children.

A selection:

As of writing, Curtis has but 202 followers on the social media platform (which he joined in July 0f 2017), so his comments have gone mostly unnoticed. That’s about to change as his harsh sibling salvos are certain to raise eyebrows.

It’s never easy to watch family fights in broad daylight. But credit is due to the Ingraham parents for raising children with individual thought and beliefs!
