'Sudden Case of Feverish Morality': Ingraham Calls Out Dems' 'Political Calculation' on Franken
Laura Ingraham called out Democrats’ “feverish morality” and, along with guest Newt Gingrich, questioned the party’s "political calculation" after more than 30 Democrats called on Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign.
In her opening "Angle" monologue, Ingraham said Democrats "have come down with a sudden case of feverish morality," which she argued is really more about their overall goal of destroying President Trump.
She said Democrats believe it's "worth sacrificing Franken," like they did with Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), in order to "save the political Titanic that is their party."Article continues below
Ingraham said Democrats plan to use the "war on women" narrative to drive Roy Moore from office if he wins the Alabama Senate race and strengthen their argument for impeaching Trump.
"The left is brilliant. They're really smart at using the media to create a narrative and pound it all day long that quickly becomes a political bludgeon," she said, adding that the goal is to advance a "false narrative that the left is all about protecting women."
Ingraham said there are countless examples of sexual abusers on the left, including Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy and Harvey Weinstein.
"Be wary of the lynch mob you join today because tomorrow it could be coming for your husband, your brother, your son and yes, even your president."
Former House Speaker Gingrich agreed, saying the Democratic Party is "losing its mind" and there is now a lynch mob going after Franken without any due process or even a hearing.
He said this is a "weird American moment where lynching people feels so good," adding that Conyers also did not receive a hearing before he was pressured by party leaders to announce his retirement.
Franken announced Thursday he will resign in the coming weeks from the U.S. Senate after facing multiple allegations of groping and forcibly kissing women over the years.
