Laura Ingraham Attacks Capitol Police Officers’ Testimony With Mocking ‘Best Performance’ Awards

 

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham mocked the testimony of the Capitol Police officers who testified before the January 6 select committee on Tuesday.

Ingraham said Democrats are holding these hearings on the riots at the Capitol on January 6th to “drag this all out” leading into the midterms, saying, “The theatrics were intended to produce an emotional reaction, logic and facts be damned.”

She gave away mock awards, beginning with “best use of tears and dramatic pauses in a leading role” for both Adam Kinzinger and Adam Schiff for getting emotional during the hearing.

Ingraham then awarded “best use of an exaggeration in a supporting role” to Sgt. Aquilino Gonell for his testimony describing how officers were attacked on January 6th.

Her award for “blatant use of partisan politics when facts fail” went to Officer Harry Dunn because he talked about how he engaged with the rioters by saying he voted for Joe Biden.

Dunn, it should be noted, made that comment right before sharing the reaction he said he received:

That prompted a torrent of racial epithets. One woman in a pink MAGA shirt yelled “You hear that guys? This n****r voted for Joe Biden!”

Then the crowd, perhaps around 20 people, joined in screaming “Boo! Fucking n****r!”

Ingraham finally gave “best performance in an action role” to Officer Michael Fanone for his impassioned testimony calling out Republicans downplaying the riot.
