Laura Ingraham Scolds Trump for Twitter Attack on Adam Schiff: ‘There’s No Reason for That’

In a sign of disapproval from President Donald Trump‘s favorite channel, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham chided him for attacking Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Twitter, rebuking the insult as senseless.

While Ingraham typically promotes coverage that strongly favors the president, his decision to publicly blast the congressman as “little Adam Schitt” last Sunday was a step too far, she said.

“My view is being tough — that’s great, we all love a tough, strong president,” Ingraham noted in her Monday night broadcast. “But you don’t have to ridicule Adam Schiff’s name. There’s plenty about Adam Schiff you can take issue with substantively…that’s just an unforced error. There’s no reason you have to do that.”

Ingraham felt that the commander in chief’s bullying was a distraction from his administration’s accomplishments.

“I’m not going to harp on it but…it detracts from all the progress, economic progress and the stuff he’s doing that’s good stuff,” she said. “There’s no reason for it. I know it’s tempting and we all get in that mode, and I’ve done it, too, but…he’s not advancing his own cause into the areas of the country among women and minorities in my view on that.”
