Laura Ingraham said Thursday in her "Angle" monologue that Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour has had a "pernicious influence" on American politics. 

Pointing back to a 2017 speech by Sarsour where she invoked the word "jihad" while criticizing "fascists, white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House," Ingraham said Sarsour's profile grew as a leader of the anti-Trump Women's March. 

During the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation battle, Sarsour was arrested for interrupting his Senate confirmation hearing. Ingraham said Sarsour is "an anti-Semite hiding in plain sight," since she and other Women's March leaders have attended Nation of Islam events featuring Louis Farrakhan.

"Any association whatsoever with Farrakhan is the ultimate tell regarding someone's true motives," she said. 

Ingraham said anti-Trump actress Alyssa Milano and Women's March founder Theresa Shook have called on Sarsour and Women's March leader Tamika Mallory to leave the organization if they will not condemn Farrakhan once and for all. 

"My question is: what took them so long?" Ingraham asked, calling out the media for going "out of its way to cover for her, rather than cover her motives and true allegiances."

She said the media made excuses for Sarsour because she's a woman, a Muslim and a harsh critic of President Trump.
