'Cat Has Their Tongue': Laura Ingraham on Comics' Response to Louis C.K. Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Laura Ingraham pointed out that many comics had "far more muted" reactions to Louis C.K.'s sexual misconduct than they had to similar allegations against conservatives.
Comedian Louis C.K. admitted to charges this week that he was sexually inappropriate towards at least five women, issuing an apology and a promise to reform.
"These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was O.K. ... The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly," the comic's statement read.
"It's unbelievable," Ingraham chuckled after reading the comedian's apology. "It's still unbelievable!"
Stephen Colbert had a lighthearted segment on the allegations on "The Late Show," which Ingraham called "so not funny." Meanwhile Jimmy Kimmel declined to mention the scandal at all.
"They protected him. They protected [Harvey] Weinstein. They protected him," Ingraham said.
"The condemnations for conservatives come fast and furious, but this time the cat has their tongue."
