Laura Ingraham’s Own Brother Calls Out “Lack Of Integrity & Expertise” After Latest Attack On Fauci
Laura Ingraham has attacked Dr. Anthony Fauci on Twitter again, and her brother isn’t standing for it. He says she’s only proving her own “gaping lack” of both “true expertise and integrity.”
Curtis Ingraham has been calling out his sister’s actions and words for a while. NBC reported in 2018 that he had described her as getting her views from his father, who he calls “a Nazi sympathizer, racist, anti-Semite and homophobe.” He even describes himself as a “sibling fact-checker” in his Twitter bio.
Now Ingraham appears to be fed up with his sister’s attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci, and her pandemic commentary in general. The Fox News host tweeted Wednesday, sharing a CNBC article titled “Fauci holds up New York as model for fighting coronavirus — ‘They did it correctly.’”
Disagreeing with the premise of the article, Ingraham added her own commentary, saying, “Fauci is a complete joke, just another political pundit with zero accountability.”
Some of us saw this long ago—but Fauci is a complete joke, just another political pundit with zero accountability. “Fauci holds up New York as model for fighting coronavirus — 'They did it correctly'” https://t.co/AmjvwDTaQd

Her brother called her out, saying that she’s “a complete nut job” who has only one talent: smearing people who have actual expertise and integrity. He adds that Laura Ingraham’s “gaping lack of both [expertise and integrity] should be apparent to all.”
My sister is a complete nut job. Her only talent is to attack and smear those of true expertise and integrity. Such a gaping lack of both should be apparent to all at this point.
Apologies Dr. Fauci! @IngrahamAngle @NIAID https://t.co/6nE7v3erz1

Salon reported in May of 2020 that while Ingraham told her viewers that health protocols were just because “Democrats just don’t trust you, and frankly, they don’t even like you,” mocking and belittling stay-at-home and social distancing orders –while she herself, and her coworkers, followed the network’s guidance and worked from home, safely.
