Fox News host Laura Ingraham did a quick segment on last weekend’s “net neutrality” Twitter spat between “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, but it was her Yoda impression at the end that got everyone’s attention.
“The force may be with Luke sky walker but the facts are with Ted Cruz,” Ingraham said as she began the segment. “Actor Mark Hamill, whose latest “Star Wars” flick is killing it at the box office, is dueling with Senator Cruz. What are they battling over though? Net neutrality. I kid you not.”
“It all became with a tongue-in-cheek video from FCC chairman Ajit Pai celebrating the virtues of appealing net neutrality,” continued the Fox News host. “And at one point he put on a black hoodie while swinging a lightsaber as the “Star wars” theme played.”
“Well, that was too much for Mark Hamill,” Ingraham said, as she read the bulk of the following Twitter exchanges between the two:
Cute video Ajit "Aren't I Precious?" Pai 🤮-but you are profoundly unworthy 2 wield a lightsaber-A Jedi acts selflessly for the common man-NOT lie 2 enrich giant corporations. Btw-did you pay John Williams his royalty? @AjitPaiFCCorpShill #AJediYouAreNOT pic.twitter.com/SpIcOEySUY

.@HammillHimself Luke, I know Hollywood can be confusing, but it was Vader who supported govt power over everything said & done on the Internet. That's why giant corps (Google, Facebook, Netflix) supported the FCC power grab of net neutrality. Reject the dark side: Free the net! https://t.co/nARkMvIEYk

Thanks for smarm-spaining it to me @tedcruz I know politics can be confusing, but you'd have more credibility if you spelled my name correctly. I mean IT'S RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU! Maybe you're just distracted from watching porn at the office again❤️-mh https://t.co/nHpJVG1Wpe

Ingraham concluded with an epic jab at Hamill’s “qualifications” to weigh in on the issue, then finished with a flourish – a Yoda impression!
“Hamill has been hammering President Trump on Twitter for months and now feels qualified to weigh in on net neutrality because of his long distinguished career on screen in films such as “Star Wars” and “Star Wars” sequels. As Yoda once said, war does not make one great. That was pretty good. We’ll be right back.”
On the Yoda impression, it may not exactly get Ingraham a Hollywood voice-over role, but let’s just say “horrible, it was not.”
There was some discrepancy on Twitter though:
Oh! My heart be still ! Was that Laura Ingraham impersonating Yoda?! Fan of Jedi I am but, Quit your day job, do not I warn! @IngrahamAngle
