Laura Ingraham: The Media’s Tearing Down Melania and Gina Haspel While ‘Lauding’ Stormy Daniels

Laura Ingraham is ripping into the media again, this time for giving positive coverage to Stormy Daniels while scrutinizing Gina Haspel and the First Lady.

Ingraham kicked off her Monday show by defending Melania Trump from critical responses to her Be Best initiative and dismissing the media reports on how Haspel’s CIA Director nomination has come under enormous pressure because of her record of involvement with Bush-era “enhanced interrogation” techniques. The scrutiny on Haspel has put her confirmation into a state of uncertainty, but the way Ingraham sees it, its just anti-Trump forces trying to force Haspel out for participating in the Bush Administration’s controversial practice.

“The anti-Trump bullies almost drove Haspel to withdraw her nomination, but she is holding firm. Good for her,” Ingraham said. “Those vilifying her are despicable.”

From there, Ingraham went on to trash the media for “rolling out the red carpet” for Stormy Daniels at every turn. As the Fox host dismissed Daniels’ allegations against Trump, she declared that the porn star “is actually a good representative of what [the media] have become.”

“It’s amazing to watch the media disparage and attack women of real substance while they laud a woman who spends most of her time hanging off a pole half or completely naked.”
