Although liberals love to accuse President Donal Trump of “being divisive,” they are the ones who work “overtime to divide the country” along racial, religious and sexual lines, Fox News host Laura Ingraham argued Thursday night on “The Ingraham Angle.”
Ingraham began the first segment of her program by analyzing how the Left is now demonizing Christmas classics like the movie “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and the song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” because of bullying and #MeToo concerns, respectively.
She then rebuked liberals for trashing Trump and first lady Melania Trump for not reciting the Apostles’ Creed aloud, along with the former presidents and first ladies in their front row, during Wednesday’s funeral service in Washington for former President George H.W.

“Depending on the politics of the moment, they go from being libertines to puritans. The once-aggressive seculars suddenly become religious enforcers,” Ingraham added, noting that these liberal critics “are the same people” who “applauded when prayer was driven out of the public school and who cheered when manger scenes were pulled from the public square.”
Ingraham argued that the Left “is blissfully unaware of how much they’ve become caricatures of what they accuse conservatives of being.”
“They claim to be tolerant. [Yet] they’re among the most rigid, intolerant people on the planet,” Ingraham said. “And while they point the finger at Trump for being divisive, they’re the ones working overtime to divide the country along lines of race, ethnicity and sexual orientation, just to name a …
