During a panel discussion on Wednesday’s edition of the The Ingraham Angle, immigrant activist Enrique Morones taunted host Laura Ingraham for the recent exodus of her show’s sponsors after she mocked Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg for being rejected from college. Morones was promptly kicked off the show.
Ingraham appeared to have had her fill of Morones, founder of the migrant outreach group Border Angels, after he said he “had never even heard of” the other guest taking part in the panel discussion — John Cox, a Republican candidate for governor in California, who was using the platform to fear-monger about immigrants.
“Enrique, I just want to tell you, God bless you, I mean, I really wish the best for you, but you’ve been so incredibly rude and nasty almost since the first second of this appearance,” Ingraham said.
“Where’s your sponsors?” Morones shot back. “David Hogg got rid of half of them. A high school kid shut you down.”
“Poor Enrique is trying to make waves,” Ingraham replied. “The sad thing is this is how the left operates.”
The camera panned to Cox as Morones was removed from the screen.
“It’s very important for people watching the show tonight to understand that what just happened with a rabid pro-illegal immigration activist — and he is that, but we still invited him on, because it’s fun to have a spirited debate — but what you just saw… [is] the attempt of the left to demonize those with whom they disagree,” added Ingraham, who has a long history of inviting people on her show with whom she disagrees, and then trying to shame them.
While Ingraham didn’t address her sponsor exodus directly on Wednesday, her exchange with Morones marked the second straight night it has come up. During the transition between Hannity’s show and Ingraham’s show on Monday, Ingraham joked with Hannity that she was “glad” Hannity’s previously undisclosed work with Michael Cohen had become a major scandal, because “for like a millisecond, the heat is off me and on you.”
