Laura Ingraham Distances Herself From 'Racist Freak' Who Agreed With Her Rant

Laura Ingraham Racially Attacks Legal Immigration on Live TV

Laura Ingraham opens her show with a direct message to white nationalists

Fox News', Laura Ingraham, made controversial statements on her show Wednesday, blaming a shift in the America "we know and love" on "demographic changes".

"A message to those distorting my views, including all white nationalists and one racist freak who's name I won't mention", she said.

Fox News management hasn't discussed the matter publicly.

Cuomo closed with a diss to Ingraham and President Donald Trump, "To turn a phrase back on our us versus them friend, is you don't like what America is, you leave", he said.

Ingraham's commentary could have business implications among some advertisers who are already skittish about her since she tweeted about Florida school shooting survivor David Hogg whining about being rejected from colleges.

CNN's Van Jones said Friday that he sees "zero difference" between Fox News host Laura Ingraham slamming "demographic changes" in the USA and the beliefs of white supremacists. "It does seem like the America that we know and love doesn't exist anymore".

On Thursday, Ingraham said those comments "had nothing to do with race or ethnicity, but rather a shared goal of keeping America safe and her citizens safe and prosperous".

She continued: "From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically, in some ways, the country has changed". But critics quickly lambasted her on Twitter, saying her comments played into the white-nationalist rhetoric that has sparked tensions across the country.

Some even renewed calls for an advertising boycott. Hogg responded by tweeting a list of companies that advertised on Ingraham's show, encouraging people to contact them to complain.

Advertisers started pulling out nearly immediately, and by the following month she had lost more than two dozen.

Fox management has said nothing about Ingraham's remarks, and a spokeswoman said Friday that the network's top executive, Suzanne Scott, was not immediately available for an interview.
