Ingraham Faces Backlash From Cuomo on Demographic Comments

CNN host Van Jones opened his Saturday show with an impassioned denunciation of white nationalism and Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

"A message to those distorting my views, including all white nationalists and one racist freak who's name I won't mention", she said.

The Fox News host faced backlash for her comments including from other media personalities and Democrats such as Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.). Furthermore, as I have said repeatedly on this show, merit-based immigration does wonders for our country's economy, our way of life and how we define our country - I even said that in my opening thoughts last night.

Ingraham was highly criticized for commentary where she said that the United States many loved didn't exist anymore because of immigration, both legal and illegal.

Jones then played the clip of Laura Ingraham bemoaning the "demographic changes" that mean American whites will soon be a minority.


"From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically, in some ways, the country's changed".

On Thursday, Ingraham said those comments "had nothing to do with race or ethnicity, but rather a shared goal of keeping America safe and her citizens safe and prosperous".

Ingraham's commentary could have business implications among some advertisers who are already skittish about her since she tweeted about Florida school shooting survivor David Hogg whining about being rejected from colleges. "Now, much of this is related to both illegal, and in some cases legal, immigration that, of course, progressives love". "They're saying the people are the problem, not just the entry".

Hogg called for a second boycott in June after Ingraham described detention centers at the US-Mexico border used to hold immigrant children separated from their parents under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy as being like "summer camps".
