Laura Ingraham to Black Americans: Trump Understands Police Violence Because of Russia Probe


Justin Baragona
May 28, 2020, 11:41 PM EDT

Fox News host Laura Ingraham attempted to explain to African-Americans on Thursday night that President Donald Trump can empathize with inequality and police brutality due to his “own experience” with federal investigators during the Russia probe.

With protests raging across the nation over the death of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis police custody, Ingraham lectured protesters over the demonstrations devolving into violence and looting.

After chastising the non-Fox media for supposedly fanning racial flames over the police killing and subsequent protests, Ingraham then decided to address the black community as a whole to tell them how they should properly protest the killing of George Floyd.

“Now, I’m not going to pretend for a millisecond to know what it’s like to be a black person in America,” she said. “I don’t. But the only thing I do know is that we all need to do better.”

Reiterating that we need to “do better,” the conservative Fox News host—who once told LeBron James to “shut up and dribble”—said the “real change agents in America are those who stay in their communities and build them up, not burn them down” before invoking a civil rights icon.

“Rosa Parks is a beloved, global symbol of freedom and justice because of the determination and dignity to which she carried out her civil disobedience,” she said. “Would burning a store have been more powerful and transformative? I don’t think so.”

Without skipping a beat, the pro-Trump Fox star then referenced the president’s anger at the FBI and Justice Department during the Russia investigation to let black people know Trump understands their experience.

“And to our African-American fellow citizens, I say this: Given his own experience with an out-of-control FBI and unfair investigation, given all the work on criminal justice reform, President Trump knows how poisonous and out-of-control law enforcement process can be,” Ingraham proudly declared, concluding her mini-monologue.
..this may well be one of the most asinine, dumbass takes on the situation I've ever read. Wow, that woman is an idiot .

(I guess she totally forgot about Trump's thoughts on the Central Park Five, huh?)

As someone commented, it really would be just awful if they trashed the lobby of the Trump Hotel.

I am glad that these protests are racially diverse. I’ve also protested many things in that exact square. That’s kind of where one goes to do these things.

Feels like a powderkeg.

I mean, given the context it was inevitable. Having Trump in office the last 3.5 years was like throwing gasoline on the fire.

If even half those willing to protest show up in November he is cooked.

Ah yes, the logical conclusion of a staunch "pro-life" ideology.

Gag.

The restaurants at Trump's shit hole at the old post office set up outdoor seating for the first day of phase 1. They may soon regret that decision

This was inevitable after what the past 3.5 years has been like. All it needed was a spark.

Absolutely.

It would be one thing if this was a total failure of leadership at the top (it is). But this is so much worse because that idiot in chief has been stoking the fires of racism from the moment he descended down from hell on that escalator.

Right?

How long you think it take before n****s be like, 'we fighting a war, I'm fighting a war I can't win, and I wanna lay it all down'?

In this country, a black man only have like five years we can exhibit maximum strength, and that's right now while you a teenager, while you still strong, while you still wanna lift weights, while you still wanna shoot back. Cos once you turn 30 it's like they take the heart and soul out of a man, out of a black man, in this country, and you don't wanna fight no more.

Me being one of the offsprings of the legacy you left behind, I can truly tell you that there's nothing but turmoil going on, so I wanted to ask you, what you think is the future for me and my generation today?

I think n****s is tired of grabbing shit out the stores, and next time it's a riot it's gonna be bloodshed, for real. I don't think America know that. I think America think we was just playing. And it's gonna be some more playing but it ain't gonna be no playing. It's gonna be murder. It's gonna be like Nat Turner, 1831, up in this motherfucker. It's gonna happen.
