Fox News host and Trump cheerleader Laura Ingraham is worried that women who are reporting rape and other sexual misconduct in the workplace are making holiday Christmas parties “less festive.”
“Is the #MeToo movement becoming a spoiler for this season’s Christmas parties?” Ingraham asked Friday evening during a segment on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle.
The controversial talk show host was speaking with comedian Jimmy Failla when she voiced concern that the new empowerment women are feeling to report molesters and other sexual predators might be ruining the holiday season for their co-workers.
“I can see this year it might be — a little less festive, let’s say that. No alcohol and no fun and no lampshades and, I don’t know, maybe that’s better,” she said.
“Is this just killing all the fun of Christmas?” she wondered to the bewilderment of anyone who isn’t a Fox News viewer.
Failla and Ingraham then attacked Vox for imposing a two-drink limit at this year’s office holiday party in an effort to keep things under control.
Limiting the alcohol limits the fun, Failla argued.
“I’m pro-holiday Christmas party,” he said. “I think it serves a purpose, which is to build comraderie over someone getting trashed. You know, you get that one night a year to be like, ‘Simmons took his shirt off and jumped in the the water fountain.’”
Keep in mind that Fox News has its own horrible past of sexual misconduct. Founder and former CEO Roger Ailes was forced out o the network over sexual assault and harassment charges and Bill O’Reilly and Eric Boiling were also found to be taking advantage of female workers.
Fox News has also been found to be silencing victims and covering up claims of sexual misconduct.
Now we know that sexual harassment at Fox News is still thriving and even being endorsed by its female employees.
Perhaps it’s time for Laura Ingraham and her fellow female co-workers to ask some hard questions of their employer. Unfortunately, for now, Ingraham seems happy to be towing the sexual harassment line.
