Laura Ingraham: ‘I Like George Will’, But His Column About Mike Pence Was ‘Beneath Him’

Laura Ingraham had a lot to say about a scathing column about Vice President Mike Pence written by conservative columnist George Will.

In the column published by The Washington Post, Will insisted that Pence has become “the worst person in government,” calling him “horrifying” and said the following:

“Pence, who has reached this pinnacle by dethroning his benefactor, is augmenting the public stock of useful knowledge. Because his is the authentic voice of today’s lickspittle Republican Party, he clarifies this year’s elections: Vote Republican to ratify groveling as governing.”

Well, Ingraham called Will’s accusations “absurd” and the column “really sad.”

“I found that from George Will really sad,” Ingraham told her panel. “He’s had an unbelievable career as one of the premier columnists, writers in the United States. He obviously doesn’t like Donald Trump, that’s fine. But I thought it was filled with such low blows. And I wasn’t even angry about it. I was actually sad about it.”

The Fox News host also knocked Will for the “religious overtones” regarding Pence’s faith, which came off as “condescending.”

“I like George Will. A lot of people don’t like George Will who watch this show. I actually like him. I’ve known him for a long time,” Ingraham continued. “And it pains me to say this, but I thought the column was beneath him and filled with low blows and not at all in any way illustrative of the man who Mike Pence is. And he’s a wonderful person and I think a very effective vice president.”
