Laura Ingraham wipes ‘rude and nasty’ guest from screen after word ‘boycott’ comes up

Back from Easter vacation and her ratings swelling, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham was in no mood for liberal nonsense after being targeted by a media-backed boycott that went after many of her sponsors.

Ingraham was doing a segment Wednesday night on California’s sanctuary laws that favor illegal immigrants, featuring Enrique Morones, founder of the human rights group Border Angels, and John Cox, a Republican candidate for governor in the state  — at least, until she booted Morones off the screen.

Cox was going on about how Democrats in California are “favoring criminal illegal aliens over law abiding citizens,” saying there is a revolution brewing over this and that he will be the next governor of California.

“I don’t know who this guy is. Who is this guy?” Morones rudely interjected. “Who is this Cox guy? I never ever heard of him.”

Ingraham was quick to chide her guest for being “rude and nasty.”

“Enrique, I just want to tell you, God bless you, I really, I wish the best for you,” she said. “But you have been so incredibly rude and nasty since almost the first second of this appearance.”

Morones tried to excuse his behavior as being “honest,” as Ingraham explained that they were invited on the show to “have a conversation” about an important topic, but Morones’ lack of self control got the better of him.

“Where’s your sponsors?” Morones replied, attacking the show host over the recent boycott. “David Hogg got rid of half of them. High school kids shut you down.”

Showing more grace than the average person would have, Ingraham pointed out that “poor Enrique is trying to make waves,” before noting “this is how the left operates.”

Morones tried to claim he was not on the left, but Ingraham was done.

“Enrique, thank you for that insightful contribution to the show,” she said, as the rude guest suddenly disappeared from the screen.

And good riddance.
