Fox News personality Laura Ingraham does not look well. Ever since she mocked Parkland with survivor David Hogg for " Whine " college denials, her show has cast a spell over sponsors. At least 27 companies now have their ads from The Ingraham Angle (Hoggs call for a boycott May had something to do with it) while Ingraham himself was forced to take a "vacation" from the Hosting to take over Easter.
But you would not know about the defiant zeal that Kate McKinnon brought to Saturday Night Live for her new Ingramam imitation – right? McKinnons Ingraham, back from a "planned vacation" – "so fun and so planned and so planned a long time ago!" – stopped by "Weekend Update" to share the names and slogans of some of their new and improved sponsors. Who needs Hulu or Nestlé if you have Carl's sister? "Leftovers Carls Jr. Eat Porridge for Old People!" Or what about your pillow, from the creators of My Pillow? "Let's get your pillow, we need more pillows." Ingraham blew himself back in the air, not just because she has Shkrelis Jelly – "it's just jam that costs $ 8,000 a glass" – for a sponsor. The embattled host is ready to defend the First Amendment, which is also known as her right to tyranny without being bullied – or as Matthew Dessem put it in Slate: "If the first amendment means something, it means that advertisers Have to generously finance a television Show where I'm a jerk to high schoolers. "
Advertisers boycott Ingraham's show dozens of times, but McKinnon-as-
Ingraham appeals to viewers not to leave. "Our country is so divided now, and I'm an important part of it," she said. You know, I'm going to say something worse, why do not you just watch the show and find out what that will be? "For the inevitable moment when she says something worse, she has Malaysian airlines:" Caught in a scandal and need an escape? Malaysian airlines. "
