Ingraham: Delta, MetLife, Others 'Ceding' to Anti-NRA Pressure 'Kicked a Hornet's Nest'
In her "Angle" monologue, Laura Ingraham warned Delta Airlines and other companies who cut ties with the National Rifle Association that by "ceding" to left-wing political pressure, they "kicked a hornet's nest."
Atlanta-based Delta was one of the first to announce they were no longer offering discounts to NRA members in the wake of the Florida school shooting.
However, Ingraham reported that the move may have cost them millions of dollars, as Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle (R-Ga.) led a successful effort to strip the company of jet fuel-related tax breaks.
Ingraham said Delta CEO Ed Bastian responded to the news by saying his company is now evaluating whether to end group discounts to other organizations based on whether they are of a "politically divisive" nature.
Ingraham said companies like Delta, MetLife, First National Bank of Omaha, Hertz, Enterprise and others are bowing to anti-gun rhetoric.
She played a clip of Florida student Alfonso Calderon, who said the NRA is "basically killing kids."
Ingraham said that both the rhetoric and the actions of companies like Delta may have "kicked a hornet's nest" that spans the political spectrum, as Americans of all parties voice their consideration for joining the NRA as a sign of solidarity.

She said that many Americans have not gotten over the last time a group of Americans was disparaged by the political class.
Several years ago, President Barack Obama claimed Pennsylvanians and people from "small towns in the Midwest" are "cling[ing] to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them" because of the regional economic downturn there.
Ingraham said she herself has not gotten over the comments.
