After his one-time devotion to Fox News, Donald Trump has turned on the network, angry that they have reported facts, including COVID-19 failures, polls that didn’t favor him, and Arizona’s projected election results. Now perhaps Laura Ingraham’s recent warning to viewers will make the president angrier still — she’s telling the public that the Supreme Court isn’t going to overturn the election results, and that they can realistically expect Joe Biden to become president.
Ingraham, whose support of Trump has netted her plenty of criticism, admitted to viewers that it is, for all intents and purposes, over. “As unpleasant and disappointing as these past three weeks have been to so many of us, as much as we wish things were different, this is where things stand tonight,” the Fox host admitted on her Ingraham Angle show. She went on to tell viewers to expect President Biden. “Unless the legal situation changes in a dramatic and frankly unlikely matter, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th.”

However, as you can see in the longer clip from her own Twitter timeline, Ingraham isn’t giving up on her Trump sycophancy just yet. Instead, she says that he’ll continue to be “the most compelling voice in American politics,” and goes on to lavish praise upon the exiting president.

It’s likely not enough to win back the viewership of Trump’s most ardent supporters, who are switching over to OANN and Newsmax, but it’s clear that Ingraham’s ideology isn’t shifting — she’s just admitting to the viewers who are still watching that Biden is going to be the President of the United States, and starting to discuss the plans for obstructing his agenda.
